Tim Burton does his own take on Frankenstein when a young boy’s dog, his very best friend, dies and is brought back to life. The problem arises when Victor’s schoolmates find out what he can do and they each want a chance to bring back their former pets from the dead. It is a fun movie to watch with the kiddos, during Halloween time especially. But be warned, I had young nieces and nephews watch this and get pretty scared. If you have kids who are sensitive to scary movies or younger than 8ish or so, this may be too much for them. I’m a big Tim Burton fan and think while this isn’t one of the very best of his. it’s entertaining and worth checking out if you haven’t.
After years and years of trying to have a child of their own, a heartbroken couple writes all the traits of their ideal child and buries it in a box in their garden. After a crazy rainstorm, a young boy arrives from the garden to be their son and happens to embody all the traits they wrote down and buried. This movie is a pretty good one and we think it’s worth checking out. The messages that Timothy teaches are ones that everyone should learn. It’s a nice feel-good movie to watch on a rainy day.
The third sequel of the Aladdin franchise from back in the day when Disney was all about straight to video sequels. Aladdin reunited with his dad. That’s right his DAD! Aladdin’s dad is the leader of the 40 thieves. The plus about this movie is that Robin Williams is back as the Genie and Aladdin’s dad is a silver side-burns fox. The animation is pretty cheap and rushed and the story is pretty cheesy, but if you are a fan of Aladdin it may be worth the watch. We are sure kids will love it despite not being the best of quality.
