The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (2005)

Here, some people say that I only review good movies and don't barely ever review movies negatively. That's how I roll. And, to carry on the tradition, this movie is SO AWESOME! I saw it about two years ago when I played Edmund in a kid's play of the film, but I now realize that that was not enough. This film has heart, suspense, and so much action it pushes the meaning of the words PG. (or it that just one word?) Anyway, this film has a very good spiritual message, enough fighting and action for the kids, but not too much for the adults. This is a perfect family film, and if you haven't seen it, it's worth the five bucks to rent it from the video store. If you have seen it,'s still worth the five bucks to rent it from the video store. so head down there, grab some Twizzlers while you're at it, and watch Narnia.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)

They just don't make movies this funny anymore. And there are pretty much no good spoofs now-a-days. But, when you go back, you can find probably the greatest spoof ever and possibly one of the best comedies ever. This sacreligous comedy shows the farcical tale of King Arthur, from the 'cocunut' scene all the way to the chapter oddly called 'The End of the Film'. If you have a sense of humor, and want to see effects so bad that they're funny, (seriously, the blood is frickin' pink) go see Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief (2010)

This is the first film adaptation of the highly popular children's book series Percy Jackson and the Olympians, written by Rick Riordan. And I have to say, they did a pretty good job with it! This movie packs action, jokes, and monster special effects that only $95 million can buy. This movie did a very good adaptation of the book, which made me happy. However, there was a ton of stuff that they took out and added in. (but for all you people in my hometown of Nashville, I'm just fine with the Parthenon scene. It did not upset me one bit) The plot differs, and you wonder how the series will keep up like this, because if Sea of Monsters comes out, there's going to be a lot that they'll have to change to set things straight. (but, it is official already. 2012 for the next one. Cross your fingers that it'll be good!) Overall, for any person that wants a little action, this flick is the absolute perfect early 2010 film to see. The action is intense, however, and is very pushy and intense for a PG love that. Ha, ha.

I, Robot (2004)

One of my personal favorite movies of all time is I, Robot. This shows the story of a mysterious cop who believes that all robots are evil and tries to destroy them and show that they are evil. This entire movie is filled with action and suspense, but the best scene in my opinion is the "You are experiencing a car accident" scene. Pure sci-fi robots-go-evil gold. Don't be shocked. You saw it coming. The plot could be confusing to younger viewers, but really, younger viewers shouldn't be watching this anyway. So you should be doing good. Overall, this film is non-stop action, adventure, and edge-of-your seat thrills. Possibly one of the best robot films ever made.

Avatar (2009)

The biggest movie of the year (and possibly the decade) has hit KidViews. This science-fiction epic has action, suspense, and a love story (blach!) in just a 2hr. and 40min. package. It's long, but keeps you in the movie so that you don't get bored. In fact, most people won't be able to keep their eyes off of the screen. This movie is a must see in 3D, and the effects have will have you blown away. However, the story is a bit weak and overdone. However, if you want to go see the single movie that has beaten Titanic, head on down and go watch the big blue people in Avatar.

Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow (2008)

This is the fifth direct-to-DVD film made and produced by Marvel Animation, and is the first reviewed by KidViews. Although it looks like a dumb kiddy superhero movie excuse, it is most definitely a winner. This superhero extravaganza tells the story of the children of the Avengers, after most of the originals have been killed by a robot named Ultron. The kids then team up with the son of Hawkeye and their mentor Anthony Stark (DUH! IRON MAN!) to take down the robot and avenge their parents. It's a bit confusing, but has heart, jokes, and the classic snot being beaten out of the bad dude. I would say that this film is a winner on KidViews.

The Princess and the Frog (2009)

Not as childish of girly a movie as it looks. This movie tells the story of a frog that became a prince...well, at least that was the story that was read to a couple of kids in the beginning of the film. This film is very funny, and is a true joy to watch. The prince is turned into a frog, and asks for a kiss from a princess. (who actually isn't a princess...that's why this is funny) Then, they both become frogs. It is marvelously creepy, and one of the best Disney films I've ever seen. The romantic scenes aren't too corny, (except one near the end. It's pretty corny) the story and plot are great, and the movie is just funny. However, the villain is a voodoo wizard, or witch doctor, or something, so some people might need to make some extra precautions. Other than that, the movie is super family-friendly. Also, a neat thing is that this film was traditionally animated (drawn out by must've taken a long, long, time) which I think is neat. I would say see it, or get it when it hits DVD, so do whatever you can to go see The Princess and the Frog.
