LITTLE NEMO: ADVENTURES IN SLUMBERLAND (Theatrical Release Japan 1989)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Little Nemo Adventures in Slumberland—weird movie that seems to pander to a children’s audience and then plays around in a Matrix-styled intellectual framework. This film does not provoke interest until the last part of the movie and that part of the movie works like the old child’s game of pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey while blindfolded. The final scenes do not go well with this film. The movie builds up through the first and second scenes and then randomly chooses its exit strategy.

Storyline

A boy becomes deeply involved in a fantasy.
