The Land Before Time IV: Journey Through the Mists
Littlefoot and the gang meet a shy newcomer, Ali, but the pleasantries stop there. There's a dire environmental theme to this third sequel in the series, in which the world's weather changes beyond the Great Valley, and what had been dry land is now a "land of mists." The shift brings new creatures who push out older inhabitants, and Littlefoot sees these radical changes for himself when he has to venture into the area to find a medicinal flower for his sick grandfather. While the animation is slow and contained the way direct-to-video cartoon releases often are, the story is sound and the now-familiar characters are memorable.
Writer:Dev Ross (screenplay), Judy Freudberg (characters), Tony Geiss (characters)

Harry W (fr) wrote: Life as a House caught my attention as a Kevin Kline movie and a film where Hayden Christensen got nominated fort a Golden Globe Award. So I figured why not. Life as a House makes a massive tonal shift first thing by putting Kevin Kline's character George Monroe through a sudden and somewhat melodramatic mental breakdown usually reserved for later on in a film when its characters have had time to develop, and it is followed by having him diagnosed with an advanced stage of cancer that is deemed untreatable. This all goes down within 20 minutes and suggests that perhaps Life as a House could be a rather quickly paced melodramatic feature which isn't the first thing I would pick to watch.The atmosphere in the film tends to be rather bipolar because it makes sudden jumps between being energetic and depressing, and it does that consistently until the end of Life as a House making it a rather bipolar film which is somewhat melodramatic at times and a little off-putting actually. Not enough to severly damage the viewing experience for me, but enough for me to find it a little ridiculous in parts.And the soundtrack is odd in Life as a House, because the marimba pieces which are used a lot are a little too light for the drama in the film and would more appropriately be reserved for a kids film. And it deviates between using that, some intensely dramatic music and even a moment of Limp Biskit but it never has any consistency and even seems to be used a little excessively. By that I mean that the music tends to play a little too much and doesn't have many moments of the characters just talking as the natural background noises occur which drags it away from the realism a little bit.And the ending to the film was rather sudden. I know it would have to end sometime, but I found that its ending simply snuck up on me and failed to have sufficient buildup. The story got distracted being optimistic about life and dealing with other drama, and then out of nowhere it was cut short. And I don't think that Kevin Kline's closing monologue made much sense. It tried to be meaningful and symbolic of its own right but I don't understand what he was saying, so the final act of the film was rather unsatisfying and abrupt, so it decreased the quality of the film overall a bit.But Life as a House still has some undeniably good qualities to it.The good intentions of director Iwin Winkler give a lot of spirit to Life as a House, and while there is a lot of tonal shifts which makes it deviate between being a feel good movie and a tearjerker, there is a lot of heart in the story and meaning that comes from the relationship shared between George Monroe and his son Sam. And its interesting watching the characters go at it since George is suffering from cancer and makes an attempt to mend his relationship with his son without attempting to use cancer as a root of sympathy. It makes their relationship all the more complicated and compelling to watch for as the film unfolds and gets deep into what goes on between them. As a father-son film, Life as a House is a compelling film to watch as it has a lot of meaning to it which is put into play by writer Mark Andrus who manages to sneak a lot of plot dynamics in there which prove effective most of the time even if they feel a little melodramatic or somewhat forced. And visually, Life as a House contains a lot of beautiful scenery which is shot on perfectly smooth and vibrant cinematography and is rich with beautiful lighting and a true sense of life. A lot of the imagery in Life as a House is very vibrant and proves memorable.When it boils down to the true elements of the story, luckily enough the majority of importance focuses on the relationship that goes on between the two main characters, and they are paired with excellent actors.Kevin Kline suffers as the lead because he is at the heart of a lot of emotionally manipulative and melodramatic material, but it can't be denied that his natural skill as an actor makes him an appealing lead for Life as a House. It's a seriously intense dramatic role he is put into, and he proves to be up to the challenge by making George Monroe a compelling protagonist. Although the melodrama isn't the best, Kevin Kline works with it and makes it feel all the more better as a part of the story, and his chemistry with Hayden Christensen is greatly successful and proves to be one of the most key aspects of the success in Life as a House.Hayden Christensen is an actor who has been widely criticised for his performance as Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. I never minded him too much, but I knew he wasn't too great. And so when he is presented with a generic character like the gothic teenager he plays in Life as a House, it is easy for him to go wrong. But he proves that it is actually easier for him to get the part done excellently. Surprisingly, he actually never slips up in the role of Sam Monroe but rather takes the opportunity very seriously and works his way intensely into the drama so that his performance is truly the best that he can give. That is how it comes out, because a lot of people are likely to be surprised by the quality of Hayden Christensen's excellent performance in Life as a House which really elevates the quality of it.Jena Malone and Kristin Scott Thomas also make compelling supporting efforts.So Life as a House is emotionally manipulative and melodramatic, but the acting talent in it is undeniable and it has plenty of visual imagery.
