Aidan seems to have a knack for picking “kids’ movies” on Netflix that doesn’t make me want to poke my eye out. So I thought I’d share his current favourites if any of you are looking for something to watch with your kid without resenting them halfway through.
Aidan’s favourite kids’ movies on Netflix
The Mitchells vs. the Machines
Young Katie Mitchell embarks on a road trip with her proud parents, younger brother and beloved dog to start her first year at film school. But their plans to bond as a family soon get interrupted when the world’s electronic devices come to life to stage an uprising. With help from two friendly robots, the Mitchells must now come together to save one another — and the planet — from the new technological revolution.
Aidan’s review: I liked it because of the robots and it reminds us to work together and appreciate each other
The Wish Dragon
Determined teen Din is longing to reconnect with his childhood best friend when he meets a wish-granting dragon that shows him the magic of possibilities.
Aidan’s review: This one made me emotional (and made me want wishes). You should watch it to remind you to give people a hand when they need it .
A music-loving kinkajou embarks on the journey of a lifetime to fulfill his destiny and deliver a love song for an old friend.
Aidan’s review: The movie has gret music and teamwork, it might make you cry though – Why do kids movies seem to be written to make people cry, seems a little cruel.
We can be Heroes
When alien invaders kidnap Earth’s superheroes, their children must team up and learn to work together if they want to save their parents and the world.
Aidan’s review: It’s a movie with kid superheroes, I don’t think I need to say anything more. Kid superheroes, with super powers.
Secret Magic Control Agency (Hansel and Gretel)
Hansel and Gretel of fairy-tale fame — now acting as secret agents — must use magic, clever thinking, and teamwork on a mission to find a missing king.
Aidan’s review: It’s a fun story, but the real fun part is spotting references to other fairytales in there.
