Although hewing close to the established facts, the movie amps up the sentimental content for maximum effect.
A generally well-made but ultimately unsurprising excursion into the supernatural.

An Oscar-wannabe that didn’t make the cut and is being released in mid-August hoping to find a small audience.
Visually compelling but tone deaf.
"The Girl on the Train" doesn’t derail but it’s not the smoothest of rides.
A mediocre horror/comedy that deserves neither high praise nor disparagement.
"The Good Dinosaur", although an adequate family film, lacks qualities that have made many of Pixar’s previous productions classics.
