Kids' Movies You Like!

Hi!

Thought I'd ask a quick question about what kids' movies if any people like. I'm a 35 year old male and there's no way I should like movies intended for 10 year olds but sometimes I can't help myself! Yesterday I saw this movie 'Big Fat Liar' and really thought it was funny and touching.

I also like 'Uncle Buck' and Disney's 'Cool Runnings'.

So do you have any kids' movies that as an adult you still like?

Thanks!

Pierre

I don't think Cool Runnings is a movie made for kids. It's a common comedy movie kids can watch.

The Lion King! It was the first movie I've seen at a movie theater. I still think it teaches us a lot about life and reminds you about the meaning of life - even for grown-ups.

I like the first two Shrek movies, they are great for children and include a lot of references to the grown-up world that kids don't necessarily notice.

I like to watch the darker films in the "family" genre, many of which are animated, such as The Secret of NIMH, The Last Unicorn, and The Black Cauldron. Also, I'm a big fan of Richard Adams, and love the animated theatrical adaptations of Watership Down and The Plague Dogs (which, surprisingly, still got a 'family' rating despite its content.)

To throw anything animated to a "kids only" category is such a waste of a beautiful storytelling medium.

Quoting Ps76 (Thread starter):

Uncle Buck is NOT intended to be a kids-only movie, and its PG rating here in the states is pretty lenient considering that it's pretty dark, and touches upon some pretty adult issues.

Miyazaki is the king of Japanese family fare, and his stories range from light and bouncy (My Neighbor Totoro) to pretty dark and serious tones (Princess Mononoke,) but still all family friendly (with nightmare fuel in some films.)

Most anything Pixar I love.

Toy Story 1-3 (cried at the end of 3)
Wall-e (cried at the end)
Up! (cried at the beginning)
Monsters Inc
Ratatouille


And I can't wait till Brave comes out this summer.

All of these movies are really clever and have a lot in them to appeal to adults. And frankly stuff that the little kids simply wouldn't get.


(Not a fan of the Cars series or The Incredibles)

Hi!

Thanks for all the replies, there looks like lots of movies I have yet to see.

Another one I like but didn't mention is Muppets from Space.

The story is something like this: (note: SPOILERS). Gonzo is sitting at the Muppet house and realises that Kermit has a frog brother and cousin and stuff and the bear has relatives and other bears too and in fact all the muppets have other ones of them but he is the only Gonzo. So he gets sad and depressed because he doesn't have his people and is all alone. Then one night he's sitting on the roof and sees a message written saying "we are coming for you" (he also sees it spelled out in his cereal). Lots of other things happen but then at the end eventually they come down from space in a space ship and Gonzo meets all his family. But he decides to not go with them and stay on Earth because he realises that his people are really the muppets all along, his friends on Earth. If that ain't a good lesson to teach kids then I don't know what is!

Thanks!

Pierre

All Toy Stories are fantastic but I was a kid for 1 and 2. But I can watch them now great movie.

Cars and Cars 2 was good too.

Walle was pretty decent.

I have not seen it in a while but Dunston Checks in used to be one of my favorites.

Any Miyazaki. As a pp has said, some are lighter some darker, but all great. Somehow I haven't seen Princess Mononoke, and I haven't caught Arriette yet.

Most Pixar, although there have now been too many with a brilliant first 20 minutes that then peter away (Up! and Wall-E the biggest offenders). Toy Story is boosted by Joss Whedon as lead writer. Meet the Robinsons get special mention due to the involvement of WIlliam Joyce, which also raises the issue of Robots, particularly its design. I just love Joyce's take on life, which shows in other kids things like George Shrinks (books and TV), Morris Lessmore (short movie and book app) and Numberlys (app).

My kids are 9 and 4, so I'm right in the thick of these, although had been pre-kids too. If I could only have one director, it would be Miyazake...

What a coincidence you bring this up! This was my favourite childhood movie, and I totally forgot about it until I randomly saw a man being interviewed on the news the other day who happened to be named "Jason Shepherd." I immediately remembered BFL and watched it right away. I can't believe I watched that movie nearly every day when I was around 10.. Ok, maybe not every day, but enough that I had the entire movie memorized. Instant nostalgia attack. I forgot how much how much I absolutely adore that movie!

Does last year's Tintin film count? I really, really liked it - words cannot explain just how much of a Tintin fan I am. My only gripe was the inaccurate registration on the Bellanca Pacemaker Tintin flew (Morocco's aircraft register uses letters not numbers. Even Moroccan Air Force aircraft have letters in their registration).

They are most likely using what's in the source material. That said, for the time period when the comic/film is set, it could very well have been accurate. Even though Secret of the Unicorn was produced in the mid-40's, it's still set set in the early-mid 20's, when radio callsign standardization was still being worked on.

So do you have any kids' movies that as an adult you still like?

Disney's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, with James Mason and Kirk Douglas. It is a kids movie, but because it is live action it doesn't seem like it. I liked that movie as a child and I still love it. My dad saw it at the theater in 1954 and he still loves it today.

The Wizard of Oz is a great movie, I have seen it at the theater a couple of times. I love the wicked witch when she is melting!

They used to be a lot looser with that PG rating than they are now. Smokey and the Bandit and Airplane are both PG an I doubt either would be today, especially not Airplane and the scene with the boobs.

I loved it too, but my gripe was Bianca Castafiore's opera. How hard is it to come up with an operatic rendition of 'Ah my beauty past compare..'? I'm sure every Tintin fan has an annoying version playing in their head when they read the books. At least I do
