Review: The Peanuts Movie, 2015, dir. Steve Martino


“The key to enjoying The Peanuts Movie is tempered expectations. When Charles Schulz’s milestone comic strip first premiered in the papers back in October of 1950, nobody could have possibly predicted the meteoric impact his work would have on both his medium and on popular culture at large. Calling Peanuts “influential” doesn’t quite cut it: Schulz’s comic is the once-in-a-lifetime kind of pop art that shapes genres and generations alike. Can The Peanuts Movie live up to that level of reputation? For many, Peanuts’ massive success and long-lasting legacy will loom over The Peanuts Movie like the shadow of the kite-eating tree, but the good news is they don’t have to.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
