The Peanuts Movie (2015)

Liked it, didn't love it, funnier than I expected even if it seemed disjointed despite the nominal focus on Charlie Brown's hapless pursuit of the Little Red Haired Girl. What I did enjoy thoroughly was the air combat sequences, it is surrealism worthy of Salvador Dali when Snoopy leads a squadron of Sopwith Camels aloft against the Red Baron from atop his red dog house. My only other observation is that Linus seemed somewhat in the background, normally he is Charlie Brown's only reliable confidante since the rest of the cast treats the "Round Headed Kid" so abominably....I kept waiting for Linus to quote Friedrich Nietzsche or at least C.S. Lewis.... Ah well there will be sequels no doubt...the movie is making mad phat moolah time enough to move Linus to center stage...
