Reading is Fun

The Pagemaster is no masterpiece, but I still like it. Mostly because it was one of a few non-disney movies I rewatched as a kid. It’s a magical tale about the power of reading and imagination. Macaulay Culkin plays a blonde Harry Potter lookalike who seeks shelter in a library. Then he becomes a cartoon, meets sentient books, and slays a dragon. The entire movie feels more like an educational TV special then a feature length movie. There are elements of horror, adventure, and fantasy in the movie. All of which are done fairly well enough. It’s not Macaulay Culkin best childhood role, but it’s decent enough to watch.
