    The CGI is awful in this movie. The CGI snake was painful to watch.

      Honestly, out of all the live action remakes that came out, this was probably my least favorite. It was good, but because I was never a big fan of Dumbo, I wasn't a huge fan of the remake. It was better than the original I thought, but the live action Aladdin, Beauty and The Beast, Lion King and Jungle Book was way way better. I give the live action Dumbo a C-

        Thankfully Pinnochio won't be another Tim Burton brain fart.

            Just got done watching Dumbo I would have to say it was an excellent movie or it might have just been I enjoyed Dumbo himself I would have to say by far he is probably the cutest CGI animal I have seen yet he pulled on my heartstrings knowing that he was not real good job I enjoyed it

                This was the most disappointing live action adaptation i have seen. The original had a lot of scenes i wanted to see made in a different yet worthy way... *BUT THIS WAS JUST SO DISRESPECTFUL*
                I disagree with you Jeremy... I had no fun watching how they destroyed any hope I had for Disney understanding how important their franchises really are.

                    The girl that plays Milly is STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL, I saw her and was instantly drawn to her. Yet, as the movie progressed, didn't portray any emotion.

                      FYI, Dreamland was real. And so was Colin Farrell’s character. Just pointing out that they weren’t made up. And Michael Keaton’s character was based on the real life park manager who was there the year it burned down. Yes, the fire also was real. So this movie basically blended the fictional story of Dumbo with the real life story of Dreamland which, interestingly enough, was one of the major inspirations for (you guessed it) Disneyland!

                        They were sunk the moment they chose Tim Burton! How many of his films have to tank for people to figure it out?

                          Dumbo is the most underrated live action Disney adaptation and I think it's the best live action than the other ones Disney has done.

                                With Aladen you explained how the ending in the cartoon was different to help refresh my memory. You didn't do that here and was a little disappointed.

                                      Should've made it more base around Dumbo with him as lead. Keep the talking animals to support pushing the plot and comedic aspect. Have the humans only be the background.

                                        How about the point in the film where the daughter brings Colin Farrell to an exhibit that shows a woman in a suit and tie and a man in a Mrs. Doubtfire dress? WTF was that??

                                          No I haven't seen this new 1. I have seen or to be more correct because I'm blind have heard the 1942 version.

                                            No Jaramy you're right. The orig 1942 1 didn't have 2 circuses going against each other.

                                              Circus animals are tragic. Americans have no empathy for animals. They think it's funny to watch animals suffer. Or they are so stupid they think elephants think it's fun to travel with a cirkus.

                                                        I honestly hated this movie, the kid actors really brought the movie down for me. They couldn’t act for shit.

                                                          That's crazy how this movie was barley advertised at all, the marketing team either didn't do a good job, or Disney wanted to save money for their other live action adaptations

                                                              So far, this is the only live-action Disney remake that I actually like (not counting Pete’s Dragon). Was it perfect? No. But at least it was DIFFERENT.

                                                                  -takes a deep breath- I thought live action Dumbo required alcohol after seeing it myself. I went in expecting a nice parallel to the original cartoon like what we got with Beauty and the Beast (bonus dark chocolate plot hole fillers) but it turned out to be another Avatar TLA movie. It was as you said, human focused. But that's where they lost me and this is where I lost interest. The girl was there to represent feminism. Hell, her acting was as stiff as her presence. Tim Burton himself is a white-washing coward. He completely disregarded that at the turn of the 20th century racism was very common and segregation was in full swing. But oh, no. We have to white-wash that part of history so it doesn't hurt the fee fees of today's young generations. Another thing that pissed me off was that, again, at the turn of the century, Big Top circuses were all the rage and so were their animal performers. But oh, no. We have to be a coward and white-wash over the historic fact of animal exploitation was common. They had only one guy that represented that and they killed him off like, immediately. The other thing that annoyed me was the fast pace of the story telling. By the time you're ten minutes into the film, you've already blown through thirty minutes of the original cartoon plot. There were some things I liked. Damn few things. One of them being the Pink Elephants scene. The other being Dumbo flying. Other than that, you need a stiff drink to enjoy it. TL;DR, Tim Burton is a white-washing coward who can't be assed to be historically accurate in his films and that Dumbo isn't worth the 6 bucks to go see. Honestly, you're better off buying the cartoon and watching it.

                                                                        Dumbo 2019: after seeing the review score, I came in with low expectations and I guess it was average. I enjoyed the cinematography during the flying scenes and the set design.

                                                                        I was on the edge of my seat during the circus acts with genuine concern for dumbo and his mom.

                                                                        It was a very safe film which is odd because it’s directed by Tim burton and the scene with the pink elephants definitely reminds you of that fact,

                                                                        although the pacing seemed a bit off where things just kind of drag until the finale.

                                                                        Lastly, for most of the beginning I didn’t really like the girl’s wooden acting.

                                                                        Back to the overall presentation, I liked the design of disney’s dreamland amusement park. It’s very retro 2000s.

But never got 2 since Universal gave the rights back 2 MGM that owns the 60's tv show and wanted 2 make it computer animated instead of stop-motion animated.
