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.
