Summary: The same Land before Time I remember watching as a kid. Lots of sentimental value for me.
- Same land before time that I remember watching as a kid.
- It doesn’t seem like this was digitally re-mastered in any way.
- This movie is the perfect length for watching with my toddler son (about 1 hour).
- The story of “Land Before Time” has a great emotional arc to it, and it is easy to get invested into the characters.
- It might be a *little* scary for kids the age of my toddler son, though he was really into the movie. Though maybe a kid that watches television more often than my son might be able to differentiate between what is happening on the screen and what is happening in real life a little bit better than my kid.
Context: We normally don’t watch television at all during the week, and generally only watch a movie on the weekend in the evening after dinner.
- My wife hates Sara the triceratops, personally I have no issue with Sara as somehow I have associated that character with a childhood friend of mine in preschool and elementary school that was by the same name.
- So… I remember watching this as a kid on VHS long before my family ever owned a computer, and before my family was basically homeless (we lived at my grandparents, in a barn, rented cabin, and in a tent for a while after living at this house). I remember sitting maybe 5 feet in front of the tube TV with the volume fairly low (sister and brother napping) to watch this movie at that first house I remember growing up in. Each time I see “land before time” it takes me back to that moment, it was fun watching this with my son.
Demographics: I am 29 years old, male, live in Minnesota USA. My son is 2.5 years old, my daughter is 6 months old.
