(The places in the film “Dinosaur” are all real. The filmmakers found and filmed scenes around the world in Australia, Jordan, Venezuela and Hawaii. The dinosaur scenes are produced using computers. Disney took twelve years to make “Dinosaur”, and its only eight-four minutes long. The film was presented in May 2000. Its an adventure story about young dinosaur called Aladar. He is raised on an island by a family of lemurs but when a meteor shower destroys their home, Aladar and his adoptive family are forced to flee to safety. Along the way he meets another group of dinosaurs who are searching for a safe nesting ground.)
Мій улюблений фільм, чудова анімація, головний герой, у фільмі Аладар маленький динозавр, кілька добрих тварин доглядали за ним, він зявився з великого яйця, у нього не було батьків, відбувся жахливий випадок і вони пішли в нову країну, намагався допомогти, незвичайна сімя, знайти безпечне місце для життя, це мій улюблений фільм тому що, анімація чудова, музика хороша, сценарій захоплюючий, спеціальні ефекти.
- My favourite film is Stuart Little. Its an excellent comedy and the main character is a cute little mouse Stuart. He is very funny mouse who can talk, clean his teeth and even drive a car.
In the film, Stuart lives with his adoptive family in New York. He has a lot of exciting and very funny adventures with the cat Snowhite. In the second part they are friends and save the little bird Margalo.
It is my favourite film because Stuart is clever and funny, the music is good and the story is exciting. This is a wonderful film for all the family.
