saw: pete's dragon

If you've ever sat through the original Pete's Dragon, you know it's an awkwardly staged Disney-in-decline misfire—and of course that's what makes it ripe for reinvention. The photorealistic remake mostly accomplishes this feat by airing out all the seventies sodium-vapor fumes and inserting a healthy dose of Iron Giant DNA. The result is a square but stolid children's film that doesn't have a lot to say but is sincere in its limited ambitions. Grade: B
