Review: Like a drawing from a Winnie the Pooh book, this trailer is completely fitting and while the live-action element is predictable, it works within the framework of the concept.
Trailer Rating: C+ / C+

Review: (#1) Another trailer that feels needlessly simplistic. Here we have a commonplace period drama loosely based on a familiar children’s book and its adult author. Would that they would make something a bit more wondrous rather than plodding.
(#2) While there are lots of elements here that suggest a most interesting premise, they aren’t particularly well combined and the film looks like it might be fully explored in the span of a trailer, which is the worst method of selling an audience on the film…if they feel they’ve already seen it.
Conceptually, it’s a potential Oscar nominee. From an execution standpoint, the trailer doesn’t give a lot of hope beyond standard tech nominations.
