Film Review

I've been re-watching this movie over the past few days with my daughter, who is watching it for the first time in her life. For me it's one of those movies that endlessly entertained me as a child, but it wasn't until I rediscovered it as an adult that I fully appreciated it. E.B. White's genius story of a young girl's and a pig's realization and acceptance of mortality is perfectly preserved here. These are difficult subject matters for both children and adults to grapple with, and the film deserves credit for sticking so closely to the book. The script is deftly structured, and I would argue against anyone who characterizes the songs as "filler;" they are well-written, charming and show a total understanding of the material and sensitivity to the characters. The soundtrack is gorgeous. On the one hand the animation is admittedly "dated," but with its gorgeous vintage appeal it is hardly obsolete. Though its family resemblance to Scooby-Do…

From the famous E.B. White children's novel (adapted by Earl Hamner Junior) came this Charles A. Nichols translation of "Charlotte's Web". The movie is a better than average animated feature about friendship on a farm between a pig and a spider. May have some good lessons for the younguns but holds little value for adults.Features the famed voice of Debbie Reynolds, who can hold her own when singin' a tune, and an enjoyable Henry Gibson. Paul Lynde and Agnes Moorhead provide comic relief as the resident rat and the chatty goose. Narrated by Rex Allen.Sunday, January 18, 1998 – Video

I am an adult, in my thirties, and I still like this movie. I especially like how well the characters are drawn – not the animals with clothing and human bodies typical of many cartoons, but they're exactly like real animals. I also love the way the countryside is shown – it must be somewhere in New England. Another thing I love about Charlotte's Web to this day is how the beginning of the movie shows the countryside at dawn, at stages from the break of dawn to daylight, with the mist and everything. The overture played at the beginning harmonizes very well with the stages of dawn, including the lively band playing "Zuckerman's Famous Pig" when it's daylight. The songs are also well done. When I was a kid, before the age of VCRs and DVDs, we tried to find the album for months. We looked everywhere. We looked all over Saskatoon (where I live), Grandma looked all over San Antonio (where she lived), etc. Finally, my mom decided to order it, but it turned out it …
