The list author says: "Movies included in this list are great for kids (& parents too...). Listed titles are bound to be fun not only for children but for adults as well. I have them all at home in DVD and boy do we enjoy watching them now and then with the whole family!"
"The quest for lost civilizations, researching ancient history books and artifacts. To embark in unimaginable journeys filled with perils in pursue of a dream. To value human and cultural differences and to treasure them respectfully. This is what this movie is all about."
"Tim Burton's flamboyant and dark moviemaking style at its best. Beyond the bizarro Burton style and beyond the astounding visuals, the movie also has a deep value to teach: to be faithful to your own values and beliefs."
"A great great musical movie for the whole family to watch and enjoy. There is something irresistible about HSM. The music, the cast, the familiar plot... And plus there is an inherent value to be discussed in family: that is to treasure and nurture diversity and to dare to be yourself despite social preconceptions and misjudgements."
"It never ceases to amaze me. "The sound of music" has been accompanying families for 40 years and it still continues to mesmerize generations of kids and parents as well. My kids lo-o-ove this movie and never get tired of watching it."
"A family of spies endure a new series of adventures in the third installment of the Spy Kids series. This one showcases the most amazing graphics, a great story, stunning visuals. Big time entertaining for the whole family."
"Everything seems to be offtrack for a widower dad (Colin Firth) after the death of his young wife who left him with seven nutty kids for him to raise on his own. The magical appearance of "Nanny McPhee" (Emma Thompson) will help him get the things back on track."
"This is such a great movie. Andrew Jackson and the Disney Studios made a superb job in adapting C.S. Lewis classic series for the big screen. The cast is impeccable the photography, the battle scenes, the music. Everything. And stay a little bit longer during the final titles and you will hear the beautiful song (WUNDERKIND)composed and sung by Alanis Morrisette."
"Superb movie. Somewhat dark but greatly made and with serious values to teach kids and to discuss with the whole family. Siblings should stick together in times of trouble so to increase their chance of overcoming all obstacles."
"The time when going with your kids to the movies was boredom for sure is WAY over!. And CARS is the perfect example: pure and plain adventure and fun right from the start. And boy did I like the music. Rascal Flatts, Sheryl Crow, John Meyers, James Taylor...."
"I grew up with this movie and since my kids where just babies I put them to sleep with classical music. Later on, they started enjoying visuals and Fantasia was the perfect conjunction to it all. This movie is definitely and all time classic."
"Though this one cannot for a second be compared to the first movie, FANTASIA 2000 has two major standouts: the "Pomp and Circumstance" segment in which they receate the story of Noah's Ark starring Donald & Daisy; and Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" segment in which they recreate the fastness and the furious pace of life in NYC."
"One of the most beautiful Disney movies I have ever seen. It teaches kids to get back in one's feet after falling, and keep the faith in the things you believe in and keep you grounded. Spectacular music and voice characterizations by Jeremy Irons, Jonathan Taylor-Thomas and James Earl Jones."
"My 9 year old son laughs so much with this movie, I delight myself in watching-him-watching-it. Characters are hilarious, plot is catchy and lots of special effects that will amuse the entire family. An updated Roger Rabbit. Fun!"
"Funny how a movie that got made more than 20 yrs before my kids were born, nowadays manages to captivate them so much Probably kids' minds have not changed that much since 1985 to our days. This comment refers to the first installment of the trilogy."
"What is it about Yu-Gi-Oh that captivates both young minds and adults alike? Probably the whole mystic setting, the abounding legends and magical artifacts, or the astonishing special effects. A great-great series to enjoy time and time again."
"This movie may seem a little slow in the beginning but once the whole plot unfolds the core of the message is exposed and justified. I love the soundtrack particularly Lindsay's rendition of Stevie Wonder' "Living in the city". My 8 y.o girl loves this movie and so do I."
"The story is simply beyond imagination, interesting, adventurous and fun to watch with characters that have trascended the societal imagery and have become legends such as Captain Jack Sparrow or Barbossa."
"And the final installment of the trilogy has brought the perfect ending to a beautiful and captivating pirate story. I loved "At World's End" and the whole trilogy is a pleasure to watch in family every now and then."
