The Good Dinosaur (Blu-ray release 2016-2-23) is a good family movie about a dinosaur growing up, facing its fears, and finding a way home.  It is good in that it delivers a little fun via the cute characters, from an otherwise formulaic story.  The CG rendering of the nature is truly gorgeous.

However, it is not the norm for Pixar to simply make good movies – they made the very best, class-leading, genuinely creative movies that were fun to watch and at the same time meant something significant.  Being “good” enough is far below the usually highest level of standard we’ve come to expect from Pixar productions.
