    ★★★★½

    Things to like about Tim Burton's Dumbo:

    2) Completely nails the look and feel and even the quiet brooding mood of the original material. The worldbuilding captured here is remarkable.
    3) If you haven't watched the original series, the storyline renders an adaptation impossible. It is virtually unfilmable as…
