For now, let’s take a look at some of our picks for best movies for kids.
The salty, buttered popcorn, and a chance to kick back and relax at a movie continues to be one of America’s best amusement. And who are we kidding you, we love movies too! Right now there are some excellent shows out for kids of all ages to enjoy. We’ve put together our ‘micro-list’ of kids’ movies you can catch whether you live in Broward or Palm Beach counties. Keep in mind, we aren’t movie critics, but we can tell you that after seeing these movies what you can expect.
Remember to check in places like Groupon and Living Social for local coupons and discounts to make your visit at the local cinema more budget friendly. The other thing to take note of is to reserve your seats and buy online when you’ll be accompanying large groups like churches, schools and birthday parties. We’ve also been very happy with the VIP and Club cards to get discounts on future movies as well.
Kung Fu Panda was a great sequel where Poe meets his lost father. While the fighting scenes were very minimal, the kids got big laughs and seemed to really enjoy the movie. We just wished they had made it in 3-D. All in all this movie is super clean and can be seen by kids of all ages.
The Secret Life of Pets is a real hoot! This movie won’t be out until Summer of 2016 but you can best be sure that this will sell out in most theaters. This movie takes place in a Manhattan apartment that shows a different side to our fur babies when we leave our homes. We are looking forward to seeing what happens when Max (a small dog) when his owner brings home a new buddy named Duke (a big hairy mutt). Either way this will be a ‘must see’ this summer.
There’s just something about Alvin and the Chipmunks are continuing to give a good hardy laugh to kids after almost 60 years! It must be their cute, little funny voices that keep crowds coming back. Their latest release “The Road Trip” will have you and the grandkids busting a gut for sure. You can’t help but want to get up and dance while they sing songs like their version of Mark-Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk”. Too unbelievably cute!
If your kids are into dinosaurs, then you won’t want to miss out on this great flick. The Good Dinosaur was made by the same people as “Finding Nemo” and is a Pixar premier work of art. You can count on lots of twists and turns in this fantasy where a lost dinosaur finds of course, a lost boy! We really enjoyed the colorful graphics that were delivered like only Disney and Pixar can.
Released just last month, Norm of the North will make you wish you had a jacket after watching this cute Lionsgate film. You’ll be sitting on the edge or your igloo anticipating what will happen to norm (a polar bear) discovers that his land is in jeopardy by an invasion of humans. There’s even a mention of our lovely state when the bear pulls up a yard flamingo and says it’s from Florida. Too funny, really. The bear takes off and goes to New York City to reclaim the Arctic. Great musical tracks by our girl Taylor Swift.
Boy and the World are a little more Indy than we were expecting. This animated is a little hard to follow for the really young and is appropriately has a spunky soundtrack with a Brazilian flavor. Cartoonist Saul Steinberg really jazzes it up by making it big and colorful. The Oscar nominated film is definitely one for older or mature audiences rated PG.
Not another Peanut’s Movie!!!! Okay, well this one was super cute! Not going to lie. The graphics are incredible in this movie. This one will take you back in time with a fresh set of eyes. Don’t go for the kids, go for yourself
Last but not least, after the dust has finally settled we were able to see Star Wars. The epic movie is still a thrill seekers adventure. The sci-fi film has a slightly different feel, but is almost as exciting as its first release back in the 70’s. In “The Force Awakens” you’re taken back to a time when that awe inspiring movie came out when you were a kid. The little itty bitty kids may not be the best to take in this action packed sequel. So keep in mind that if you can spend the extra cash go 3-D IMAX, it’s well worth the visual experience.
Here’s the Wow Factory’s List
- Kung Fu Panda
- Secret Life of Pets
- Alvin and the Chipmunks
- The Good Dinosaur
- Norm of the North
- Boy and the World
- The Peanuts Movie
- Star Wars
