Winnie The Pooh: Movie Review


After past movies that is filled with Horrible Bosses, a few Change-Ups, a little Hanna, some CGI robot battling each other, It is refreshing and nice to be sunk into this family movie from Disney. Surprisingly warming which just calms the inner me. The movie with the classic characters that A.A. Milne created for the Winnie the Pooh stories just seems to do well on their own. 

Such timeless toon indeed. It is not complicated, the story I mean. There's Pooh, who is a bear that belonged to Christopher Robin along with his other stuffed toys. From the start of the movie seeing the bedroom of the human Christopher Robin, Pooh gently and seamlessly slips in to the animated world.

Over all, i think the movie is elegantly simple. The vocals of the beautiful and talented Zooey Deschanel worked so well for the soundtrack. The narration of John Cleese was just great and blends well in just simply telling a story to it's audience. Pooh's voice was just magnificently matched down to perfection, great job to Jim Cumming, and also for giving life to Tiger. Another worth noting also is the Owl who did great in the movie giving a touch of some comic jabs here and there, the Owl is voiced aptly by Craig Ferguson. The story is not complicated, it is simple, warm and lovely.

Only those with very little brain (smaller than Pooh) would fail to appreciate a movie like this. Me? personally, I liked it, it did made me laugh and smile at the same time. Another thing that i liked it how as the story moves back and forth in the pages of the story book. Letters from the story books are also being utilized and made used of.

The story is about the search of the donkey Eeyore's tail and Christopher Robin putting up a contest on who ever can find a tail for Eeyore. Everyone seems to have their own interpretation of a tail and then something happens. As interpreted by the wise owl, Christopher Robin has been captured by a creature called the Backson.

So from this, you'd be curious on how our friends Tigger, Rabbit, Eeyore, Owl, Piglet, Kanga, pocket-size Roo and that tubby cubby do?

I give the movie 3.5 HUNY popcorns for its loveliness and cuteness. Great family bonding movie. Loved it! :)

Check out the trailer below.

Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with Winnie the Pooh. Featuring the timeless charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, this all-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical "bear of very little brain" and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, Kanga, Roo-and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail. "Ever have one of those days where you just can't win, Eeyore?" asks Pooh. Owl sends the whole gang on a wild quest to save Christopher Robin from an imaginary culprit. It turns out to be a very busy day for a bear who simply set out to find some honey. Inspired by three stories from A.A. Milne's books in Disney's classic, hand-drawn art style. -- (C) Walt Disney
