Awfully Good Movies: The Adventures of Pinocchio (Video)

03.15.2017

The Adventures of Pinocchio (1996)
Director: Steve Barron
Stars: Martin Landau, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Rob Schneider

This weekend, Disney is back once again remaking their animated classics into live-action with Emma Watson in BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, so Awfully Good Movies is here to make your wish for another live-action fairy tale movie come true, as we review 1996’s THE ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO, starring Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Martin Landau! No, this flick has nothing to do with Disney or Jiminy Cricket or the Blue Fairy, because this version of the classic Pinocchio story from New Line Cinema is meant to be a more accurate adaptation of the original story, with a whole lot more creepiness added to it: a creepy Pinocchio puppet, a creepy CGI wisecracking cricket who makes you miss Jar Jar Binks, a creepy villain played by famously creepy German character actor Udo Kier, and creepiest of all...ROB SCHNEIDER. Yes, if you thought Ultron singing “I’ve Got No Strings” was the scariest thing you’d associate with Pinocchio, and if you thought you had stopped crapping your pants in fear after watching the Roberto Benigni version of PINOCCHIO...be prepared to think again.

Extra Tidbit: Not only did director Steve Barron do the first TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, but he was also the director of some of the most famous music videos in history, including a-ha's "Take On Me", Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean", Dire Straits' "Money for Nothing", The Human League's "Don't You Want Me"...the list goes on. He also directed CONEHEADS. Just thought you should know.
