About The Movie
Charlie Brown and the gang have been brought back in this lovable movie, ‘The Peanuts Movie: Good Grief!.’ Directed by Steve Martino, and written by Craig Schulz, Bryan Schulz and Cornelius Uliano . I’m glad Steve Martino, made this computer animated movie to introduce it to the younger generations. He did a great job updating the visuals while still portraying the classic Charlie Brown feel that the creator Charles Schulz had done.
The reason people have become fans of the shows and comic strips over the years is that it’s different from other cartoons. There’s a sophisticated feel it brings to the audience by the vocabulary and how the characters interact with each other. It is a cartoon that is well-balanced, meaning it does not overstimulate the mind and eyes with too much action (like a lot of cartoons out there these days!). It’s got that old charm of just enough action to keep you entertained.
I love the message you walk away with from watching this movie. The moral is that you can be your own worst critic, but if you make the right choices in life someone out there is bound to notice what a great person you truly are.
As I mentioned to my mother I was going to surprise my kids and take them to the movie after school, she began to tell me something I find remarkable. It was brought to my attention that my grandfather, Mike Johnson, actually worked in the same office as Charles Schultz in the 1950’s to the 1960’s, before Charles Schultz moved to California. Apparently they were teaching art at the Art Instruction School, located in Minneapolis MN. I find this fascinating and wish my grandfather were still alive to hear his stories.
