A bit from Fr Dennis' review:
Quote:
http://frdennismoviereviews.blogspot.co ... -2018.html
Call it honestly a children's, a "Winnie the Pooh" version of the Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, Matt Damon WW II classic Saving Private Ryan [1998], because _so lost_ had Christopher Robin become in life that he didn't even know how lost he was: When the adult, thoroughly responsible but by now all but soul-dead, Christopher Robin first encountered Winnie the "teddy bear" of his childhood after all those years, he honestly didn't know what to do. And he didn't understand why this talking teddy bear, who came back for him at this point in his life would, passing by a vendor of helium balloons, would _so want_ a balloon: "Why do you want that balloon so much?" the approaching middle age Christopher Robin growls at his childhood teddy bear. And Winnie the Pooh answers him, "Because it makes me happy."

OMG ... the rest of the movie unspools from there.


Heard of Christpher Robin when young, thought he was the bear ... seems I was wrong.

Ignorance is bliss.

But then Winnie the Pooh was too heavy stuff for a catholic kid. :roll: :roll:

I liked Prince Valiant too. There was a daily strip in Uusi Suomi magazine every day and a longer one on Sundays. ;)
