    Default Favorite Kids' Flicks

    I just discovered "Nanny McPhee," which has joined my list of favorite kids' flicks. The story's good, the acting's good, and the sets are beautiful. I absolutely love the colors in the house, and Sdalek wouldn't mind if I painted a room that way. (Seems like a lot of work--distressing and all that.)

    I'm also very fond of "Finding Nemo," the Harry Potter series, "The Witches," "A Little Princess," and "Amelie." (Does "Amelie" count as a kids' flick? Maybe it's not.)

    Anyone got other favorites?

    Ice Age!!!
    SCRAT RULES ALL!!


    I recently watched Cars and that's not in the league. Toy Story used to be a fav as did Monsters Inc.

    Sometimes it's the best of both worlds. Hidden meaning for your brain, slap stick incase your feeling evil and SIMPLE stories incase your tired.

    - That movie's on my top ten list, regardless of the viewer's age. It's simply an excellent movie in concept and in implementation. some others
    - Hoodwinked
    - Shrek
    - The Iron Giant
    - Beauty & the Beast
    - Toy Story 1 & 2
    - The Princess Bride

    Movies I'm sort of ashamed to admit I enjoyed at some level:
    - The Parent Trap (remake)
    - The Princess Diaries
    - High School Musical
    - Big

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I love ALL of these, except I haven't seen Nanny McPhee. My sister-in-law recommended it, and it's on our Netflix list. Amelie is probably not appropriate for children but it has that childlike vibe to it. Doubleplusgood!

    I LOVE almost anything by Hayao Miyazaki, but especially My Neighbor Totoro. Kiki's Delivery Service is a close second. Spirited Away is interesting but loses its center I think.

    The BBC did a series of animated Beatrix Potter stories which are fantastic.

    Star Wars, yes, pretty much a kid's movie.

    Finally (for now), I'm not above Disney movies. Fantasia and Alice in Wonderland are two of the best.

    The Princess Bride is a kids' movie? That's our unofficial youth group flick.

    Ooh, good choices.

    You're a little biased when it comes to Babe, though, since you're in it.
