Snoopy and Charlie Brown kicked off Scoil Mhuire's first ever film club. The film club takes place every Wednesday in the library and our members can't wait to find out what next week's movie will be......
Our film critics wrote excellent reviews that analysed the plot, the protagonists and the genre. Here is Grace Mc Cormack's review:
My favourite protagonist is Snoopy because of his humour and loyalty towards Charlie. We watched an inspiring, animated movie filled with positive messages and role model. The film actually felt like watching two movies. The sub-plot of the adventure between the Red Barron vs. Snoopy and main plot the stereo-type of a nervous school boy named Charlie Brown, who dreams of flying a kite.
I believe the moral of the story is you can do anything you put your mind to. Charlie takes on tasks like trying to fly a kite, reading and writing a book report on an impressively large book in one weekend for a young girl that he has taken interest in. Charlie also rejects a 100% score in a maths test that he did not achieve, by doing this he rejects an award and a day named after himself. There are fabulous scenes that really show off Charlie’s selflessness and loyalty, like sacrificing his chance to impress the young girl and his pride to help his younger sister. Snoopy is quite an interesting character and an intelligent dog! He is very loyal towards his owner, Charlie.
The movie portrays how it’s ok to be different and as the movie quotes “It’s the courage to continue that counts”. I would recommend this movie from aged 3 plus or as soon as the child is old enough to understand what is going on.
