Italian live-action version has mild scares and peril.

This movie comes from the creative mind of director Matteo Garrone who brings his distinctive surrealist and dark cinematic style to a much known and loved tale. This live-action version of Pinocchio -- in Italian with English subtitles -- is very much a retelling of the original Carlo Collodi story as opposed to the 1940 Disney animation, and it thrives in the absurd world that's spawned from the writer's mind. Garrone doesn't shy away from being strange, and this movie wears it's bizarre tone and aesthetic like a badge of honor. The look is somewhat unsettling though, and what transpires is quite a scary film. Even though it remains accessible to all the family, the sheer oddity of it may well lead to a restless night, even for adults. Benigni -- who played Pinocchio in a terrible 2002 live-action version -- is brilliant as Geppetto. In fact one of the downsides is that he's not given more screen time, as he's undoubtedly the best thing about the film. While Pinocchio's adventures are more integral to the plot, it's a joy when back in the presence of the aforementioned woodcarver.

Like in the original, it's a fun and enticing arcade game, but familiar characters add a bit of a new twist. The blocky, old-school style is appealing, and it strikes a balance between simplicity and challenge, which makes it addicting but never frustrating. Since each character comes with its own setting and fun elements, kids will want to play with their favorites; though this is a cool feature of the game, it's also something parents will want to talk about with kids before downloading since new characters either require a lot of time in the app or real money.
