It’s Friday! Time to make plans in family, enjoy the spare time. Visiting a museum, going to play Frisbee to a park or take a walk on the beach… Those are good plans, but also it can be time to relax at home. For that, is there a better plan to do than watch a family movie with your kids? 

There are movies that you see with your children, share with them and pray that they will remember them for the rest of their lives. You know why? Because they are that special, they teach us valuable lessons!

The most important reason parents should expose their kids to animated movies is because they represent the kind of art that children can understand and appreciate. There is an entirely amazing genre of entertainment – animated movies you should enjoy with your kids, family and beloveds.

Our recommendation for today is…

Princess Mononoke

  • Title: Princess Mononoke
  •  PG - 13
  • Rate: 8,4/10 
  • What will tell to your kids: On a journey to find the cure for a Tatarigami's curse, Ashitaka finds himself in the middle of a war between the forest gods and Tatara, a mining colony. In this quest he also meets San, the Mononoke Hime.
  • Why we like it ~ Lesson: Princess Mononoke is a film that stands against intolerance in all its forms and demands coexistence and understanding from its audience. How bold for what is, in its most simplified definition, a cartoon. Hayao Miyazaki has transcended the limitations of anime, cartoons, and the modern designation of animated feature. Through Miyazaki’s singularity as a storyteller and artist, his brand of animation, the high art of his medium or any other form of cinema, he offers an arena where the most unlikely of stories can be told, and they often are.
  • Curiosities: Princess Mononoke was the highest-grossing Japanese film of 1997. It became the highest grossing film in Japan until it was surpassed by Titanic several months later. It was the top-selling anime in the United States in January 2001

Now, grab the popcorn and settle in for a magical movie night with the family.

Inside out characters

  • Title: Inside out
  • PG
  • Rate: 8,5/10
  • What will tell to your kids: Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
  • Why we like it ~ Lesson: The film has some deep things to say about the nature of our emotions. Its fundamental messages about emotion are consistent with scientific research: happiness is not just about joy, don’t try to force happiness, sadness is vital to our well-being, mindfully embrace—rather than suppress—tough emotions. Inside Out has artfully opened the door to these conversations, some of the most memorable scenes in the film double as teachable moments for the classroom or dinner table.
  • Curiosities: Director’s inspiration for this film came from watching his own daughter go through this turbulent part of growing up. The dinner scene where Riley’s mom tries to get her husband’s attention came, also, from Pete Docter’s own experience.

Now, grab the popcorn and settle in for a magical movie night with the family.

Our recommendation for this weekend is…

The Princess Bride 1987


The Princess Bride

PG

Rate: 8,2/10 (IMDb)

 

What will tell to your kids: While home sick in bed, a young boy’s grandfather reads him a story called The Princess Bride: A fairy tale adventure about a beautiful young woman and her one true love. He must find her after a long separation and save her. They must battle the evils of the mythical kingdom of Florin to be reunited with each other.

Why we like it ~ Lesson: Many of us have seen this movie during our childhood so we can translate the messages we’ve received. No matter how insane a problem may seem, there is always a way to tackle it. Know when to focus on the group and when to focus on the one: it’s good to trust in the force of many but also to be confident about your own strengths. Be yourself always. Just because no one has, doesn’t mean you can’t.

Curiosities: All of the main characters are introduced in the first seven minutes of the film. There really was a “Dread Pirate Roberts” (Bartholomew Roberts, also known as Black Bart) who operated in the Caribbean in the early 18th century. He is reckoned by many to have been the most successful pirate of all time. Iocaine powder is a fictional poison.

Now, grab the popcorn and settle in for a magical movie night with the family.
