Dot and the Kangaroo

Dot and the Kangaroo

An Australian settler girl gets lost in the outback, but she is befriended by a kangaroo who gives her a ride in her pouch as they search for the girl's home. Aiding the pair are musically gifted koalas, platypuses, and kookaburras in this 72-minute film based on Ethel Pedley's 1899 children's book, with animated humans and animals superimposed upon a live background. Children will be touched by the relationship between the child and her marsupial protector, who has lost her own joey. But they may also be frightened by the mythical bunyip (a threatening animal-bird hybrid) or the heroines' violent confrontation with snarling dingoes. Finally, children who are used to happy endings will be mystified that the kangaroo never finds her own baby, and Dot, although returned home, sobs when separated from her beloved kangaroo. The film movingly dissolves from a weeping Dot to footage of real kangaroos bounding through the Australian bush. Ages 3 to 8. --Kimberly Heinrichs

Dot and the Kangaroo torrent reviews

Martin R (mx) wrote: For a movie with five sequels, it's a damn shame that only the first two--specifically the second one--are the only ones worth checking out. The rehash formula of hillbillies huntin' their prey would be more interesting if the kills got more creative with each film, like, say..."Hatchet." I mean, for a movie that's unrated, there sure is a LOT of censorship to the violence. But I'll give the filmmakers props for the fire hose kill, that was probably THE sole highlight of the entire flick. The sad part is that the "hotel in the woods" location definitely had potential to provide the movie with rich visuals or some good tension. There's a nice jump-scare at the hotel's hot spring where one of the characters sees a hillbilly, having had seen him earlier in the woods. I just wish they had built off that style--it's not original, but it's different, and that's fine enough by me. Horror films of this sort can have a lot of a cheese; the less dairy, the better. However, somebody let the milk go sour because this cheddar really does reek. Whatever happened to the hints of toxic industrial contamination, I mean, if the characters are going to stay the same, why not keep a consistent backstory? Especially since, oh....I don't know, you can build off a toxic spill at the ol' mill. It's not exactly fresh, but it could be used to explain some things. Nope, Wrong Turn has no desire to provide any sort of finale to the series. This is a franchise that has no plans or desire for any sort of closure for the near future. These movies will continue to be churned out and I wouldn't mind, but if that marketed "UNRATED" sign is going to get me a bit of blood and a shaky style of Hollywood death blows, I will gladly spend $20 on something GOOD vs the near-two dollars that it cost to rent this Wrong Turn.

Matt M (fr) wrote: This German romantic comedy drama is really the fruit of the influence of all those sloppy American films of the same kind. Certainly one to miss.

Mike C (br) wrote: At times the technology makes the film difficult to watch, but the message is well worth it. So many examples, but the one example that stands out is the freedom of speech issue in France. Why so many cannot distinguish between supporting free speech and supporting the message of the speech is beyond me. But it is one easy way to discredit a fella. I have my own intellectual heroes, and Chomsky is not necessarily one of them -- largely because he's so deep and can get over my head -- but watch enough of him and it would be hard to argue there is anyone who knows so much about so many things.

John C (br) wrote: The first half runs along in a relatively amiable way, though it is a little on the slow side. But the film really kicks into gear in the second half when the two main characters decide to get married. At that point, it really does earn its reputation as a screwball classic.
