The Peanuts Movie

Most people are well aware of the character Snoopy over say Charlie Brown or the rest of the gang from Peanuts, however this movie will change that. This animated film brings the feel of the original comic script to the big screen with a fresh coat of paint and an artistic style perfect for these characters. The plot surrounds Charlie Brown as he deals with what he believes is a social inadequacy of himself in all manners of life and how he can overcome his setbacks to appeal to the new girl in school. While the story is centred around Charlie Brown, we are given some of the most rich and exciting characters that all interact perfectly together, they really are an ensemble cast of characters. From Peppermint Patty to Pigpen, you will fall in love with every one of them. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Snoopy didn’t steal the show, nor any character for that matter. Snoopy is given a few segments which occupy his fantasy’s and they are very creative as he pursues the Red Baron with his big red dog house.

The Peanuts movie is an instant classic and is sure to win your heart. It’s the best animated film in my opinion since Toy Story 3 and I really hope it wins the Oscar for Best Animated Feature.
