Okay at first I was gonna give this film five stars, but I had to actually think about the character building. I do have a bias for this film because I grew up watching Winnie the Pooh; but to be honest I found they failed to tell Christopher Robbins story. We only get one scene of him as a child with Pooh and his friends, then a quick flip through his life growing up. It was hard to then believe this work Holocene was ever a fun child. You are unable to feel connected to the plot of trying to get him to realize he has lost his fun side when you never saw it. Overall it's a touching film, but I do wish it was a more memorable story.
I absolutely loved the Winnie the Pooh stories when I was young and have wanted to see this movie since I heard about it. From what I've heard, it leaves a bit to be desired compared to the original stories, but I suppose that is to be expected. It has been so long since I've seen or read Pooh that I think it would be a refreshing reminder of the stories, anyway.
I have not watched this movie yet but I was an avid reader and supporter of Winnie the Pooh and his crew since birth. I would like to watch this movie to see what has happened to Pooh and Christopher Robin as a grown up.
