4. The Good Dinosaur (2015)
The genius premise:
In an alternate timeline, an asteroid missed the Earth and dinosaurs were never wiped out. In this world, dinosaurs and humans must co-exist. Despite their differences, a young boy and a young dinosaur must work together to return home safely after being washed away by a storm.
Did it fulfil its potential?
Technically, no, but that’s not to say it’s a bad film. The Good Dinosaur is gorgeously animated and makes for solid family-friendly entertainment, but it’s just not up to Pixar’s usual standards. With the Pixar banner attached to such an intriguing premise, The Good Dinosaur deserved to be a little more memorable, and though it’s good, it’s not as great as it should be.
