To help you select the very best kid movies, I’ve compiled a fool proof our topics to please every generation squeezed on the couch.
Finding Nemo: the story of a child who goes on an enlightening adventure after being away from his dad and the world he knows.
The Wizard of Oz (1939): the wizard of Oz still dares kids to dream by reassuring the that no matter how far those dreams may take them, they can always come home.
The Extra-Terrestrial (1982): is a right of passage movie, one that every kid is practically required to see before he/she reaches age 12. There is a reason for that. It’s about what happens when a child of divorce finally grows up and accepts that all meaningful love will eventually involve letting go.
Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937): snow white created the template for nearly every family film that followed, turning a “chosen movie” into a massive mainstream hit. Disney’s first full length animated film was a technical marvel, a mixture of “Mirror, mirror monstrous and rose red beauty and a masterful retelling of a fairy tale from the past.”
The Red Balloon (1956): simple and, mesmerizing piece of work about a young boy who can’t shake the presence of his new helium-filled red friend.
Babe (1995): the story of an orphaned pig who defies all odds and triumphs as a sheep herbier. It is a very notable exception and this got the academy award nomination for the best picture to prove it.
The Lion King (1994): Based loosely on Hamlet, the Lion King is epic in scope, heavy with themes of familiar responsibility and made buoyant by the sound of “Hakuna Matata”. Its lovable characters and lively music will have children and adults failing in love with the film in no time, it is without a doubt a Disney classic.
Pinocchio (1940): the movie that made every child made the prospect of telling a noise elongating fib also encouraged us to focus our dreams on the sky and wish upon stars you know; became a cricket in a top that for us to.
The Incredibles (2004): for kids who are still a little young for the intensity of, say, the Avengers or the Dark Knight, that the incredible, a big action flick that also remind us that sometimes the most admirable heroes actually aren’t super at all.
Wallace and Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005): the toothily inventor and his canine side track finally get their own, full length claymation feature, an academy award winner filled with all the brit-silliness previously featured on in Wallace and Gromit shorts.
Winnie the Pooh: Winne the Pooh movies are like cinematic training wheels, rarely containing anything frightening or objectionable enough to knock a toddler off balance. This most recent and bit to the piglet tight canon is gentle, funny and a fessing change of pace from the usual, cute effects and snarky humour found in marry modern kid flicks.
