Childrens Movies you Begrudgingly enjoyed

Recommended Posts

Tron

Explorers

Something Wicked This Way Comes

 

I actually recently saw the 1975 Escape to Witch Mountain which looks incredibly cheap but is passable. Great cast.

Was going to follow AoT's lead in questioning the 'begrudgingly' bit but instead I just want to bring your attention to the oeuvre of The Muppets.

 

Beyond that I love animation as much as I ever did and am very easily pleased when it comes to stop-motion.  Watched a few old Morph clips just yesterday, they were awful, I loved it.

Home Alone 1 and 2, The Witches (Roald Dahl), Robin Hood (Disney), The Goonies, E.T., Busgy Malone, Transformers: The Movie (1986) and The Snowman are some of my all-time favourite films.

Good shout, anything Roald Dahl or Terry Pratchett related.  No quality control on my side of things at all. 

 

Cosgrove Hall's BFG adaptation... the good shit (although some of the giant designs haven't exactly, erm, aged well...)

Jason and the Argonauts.

 

 

Mysterious Island, another Ray Harryhausen  classic.

 

I know it's not a movie (although they did make a couple) but the original Thuderbirds is still great

More of a TV movie than a "real" movie, but Ratburger was a lot of fun.

Transformers the movie is brilliant.

 

For me transformers the movie, all the toy story films. Love all the old superman films as well.

The Technicolor Jules Verne movies are great for kids

 

20000 Leagues under the Sea

Journey to the Center of the Earth

Five Weeks in a Balloon

Around the World in 80 Days

 

The "From the Earth to the Moon" one from the 50s is a bit meh.

The 2 most recent Muppets films are very good, and the songs are written by Brett McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords.

 

No begrudgery about it. They're dead good.
