'Christopher Robin' - A Rare Nostalgic Gem of a Film  

It's rather rare that I write a post without a direct Disney World connection but today I had to make an exception after heading out to see 'Christopher Robin.' As an opening remark and a review in a few short words, the film is undoubtedly a film that takes you back to your childhood, that brings a smile to your face, and shares a heart felt message that so many need to here in the world we live in today.

This film is a rare nostalgic gem of a movie that is enjoyable for all the right reasons. It spans the age range and is that classic feel good movie that is growing increasingly rare in the box office today. 


Without spoiling the plot, 'Christopher Robin' brings back the true heart of the Hundred Acre Woods we've known and loved for years on end. The location and story has inevitably changed but the characters are almost iconically and unequivocally the same. It's the same heart felt story, the same happy ending, and the same quotable lines you expect from the characters of the Hundred Acre Woods brought into the hustle and bustle of London. It's a new story which quite literally takes you back to the original stories so many of us have grown up with and enjoyed for years on end. 

However, this story hold s far greater meaning that so many in our society truly need to hear or at least see played out before their very eyes. It's a film that transcends the walls of the theater and makes you think about life from a new perspective. When you leave the theatre you leave with, at the very least, a new train of thought for even the briefest of moments. It gives you a spectacular appreciation for the little things in life and does so in a way that provides entertainment and true value for viewers of all ages to enjoy. 

It's rare that a movie creates "food for thought" anymore and this is the exception rather than the rule. Throughout the film there are moments and short but recognizable quotes that take the most difficult of concepts and simplifies them down to the most impactful of quotes. Combine that quotable nature with a few laughs and a few moments that pull at your heart for all the right reasons and you have a film well worth your time and money to go see. 



if you give this movie a chance and go into with an open mind and a willingness to except joy in the littlest of moments and the most classic of stories you'll leave the theater with a smile but more than that you'll leave the theater with a greater appreciation for family, friends, and the simple moments in life. 

I've said it for years but the most memorable of moments can come from the simplest of situations in the Disney Parks (you knew I'd tie it back to Walt Disney World). 'Christopher Robin' is that same concept in a film and something I appreciate and can fully support with a positive review. Life can be hectic, the little things can get overlooked, but its the littlest of things that create the longest lasting memories in life. That, in and of itself is the story I pull from this film and one that I hope you'll take the time to go and see in the coming weeks.
