Pinocchio – The Signature Collection: Blu-ray Review











The Movie:

“Pinocchio” tells the tale of wood-carver Geppetto’s beloved puppet who embarks on a thrilling quest – with faithful friend Jiminy Cricket – that tests his bravery, loyalty and honesty, all virtues he must learn to fulfill his heart’s desire: to become a real boy.

There’s not much to say about this film that hasn’t already been said numerous times. It’s a classic that is enjoyable on so many levels. From the songs to the animation and even the life lessons throughout it’s a movie that can be enjoyed by everyone. The one thing that I will say is that it was a bit darker in tone than I remember. It wasn’t dark in sense that it was inappropriate it just dealt with a little more serious topics like temptation and not making smart choices in life as opposed to the usual “find yourself” kind of scenarios. I watched this movie with my 6 year old son because I realized he had never watched it before and he ended up absolutely loving it. He loved the magical aspect of a puppet becoming a real boy by the end of the film and seeing his eyes light up while watching it really made my day. The best thing in my opinion about these classic films being re-released on Blu-ray is the fact that I get to experience them with my kids and see their reaction to movies I saw when I was little. If you’re a bit on the younger side or have never seen Pinocchio then I HIGHLY suggest seeing it as soon as possible. I guarantee you that it’ll be one that will be stuck in your movie memories for life. 10/10
