    Did you like the 2019 telling of Dumbo?

    I wanted to but didn’t. There’s no emotional intelligence behind the technical bravado. Since emotional intelligence is what makes Dumbo timeless, this is a disappointment and a failure.

    Tim Burton is virtually a spent force. Over the last 20 years, aside from his stop motion animated features Frenkenweenie & Corpse Bride he has only made two regular feature films of any note: Big Eyes & Sleep Hollow. Other than those his career is pretty much a train wreck artistically. Dumbo is another dud I’m afraid.

    I guess I’m the oddball because I enjoy the movie. I thought it was a bit heartwarming and I got a little emotional from it.

    It was cute. I liked it but it fell flat when Devito and Keaton weren’t on screen.

    Mostly no. The first part, which is the literal remaking part of the original movie is horrid. The original is 1000X times better. And what it is surprising is that it comes from Tim Burton, someone extremely creative, but the film feels dull, uninspiring and boring.

    The second part of the movie is much better (mainly when Keaton appears) and took its own path. Still not enough to solve all the problems that appear at the first half.

    Also I’m pissed of what they did with the pink elephants part.
