Happy New Year Flixwatcher fans! We hope you had a fantastically festive film based Christmas and caught up on our previously reviewed films - if you did let us know your Flixwatcher scores by Tweeting us @Flixwatcherpod Our first podcast for you in 2017 is Ep #007 with Dave and Jen from The Family Tree - The Little Prince Netflix Original animation, the choice of Dave. Little Prince-Flixwatcher PodcastA personal project from director Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda & Spongebob SquarePants) to animate the classic novella written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (French aristocrat, writer, poet, and pioneering aviator) in 1943, was also a personal choice from Dave. Remembering it from his childhood as an audiotape and now intrigued to find out how the story translates into this 2015 animation. A film that could be broken up into three parts, the Flixwatcher team and Dave and Jen agreed unanimously that it was gorgeously animated but lacked coherence. There was plenty of discussion on kids films - why we categorise most animation as children's entertainment - the unnecessary need for endless sequels and of course the beast that is Pixar! More importantly for Dave and Jen - the ability to be able to have a tea break in the middle of a film session! Overall The Little Prince comes out as a solid 3 - we admired its ambitions and adored Jeff Bridges Aviator but its pace and third part let it down. Not up there with the high scores of the other Netflix Originals we've reviewed (Knox, Beasts of No Nation) but still worth a watch.  

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='8'] Overall The Little Prince comes out as a solid 3 - we admired its ambitions and adored Jeff Bridges Aviator but its pace and third part let it down. The Little Prince performed highest on the Small Screen Score with Score of 3.75 and lowest on repeat viewing score with 2.25. Not up there with the high scores of the other Netflix Originals we've reviewed (Knox, Beasts of No Nation) but still worth a watch.
