Tangled in a Frozen El Dorado

Oh my goodness gracious, hallelujah, wham bang … We’re talking “Children’s movies”

My inner child talking here, what a topic … and so little time. Eek.

Where do I start?

I’ve always loved kids’ movies. Always watched them and even more so since I’ve got my own children. From memory (and unfortunately my memory is not as amazing as Jeff’s), but anyway, movies that come to mind straight way are “Robin Hood”, Tin Tin, Biene Maja, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Jungle Book, Pippi Longstocking, The Famous Five seriesThe Rescuers – man I loved that movie !! I remember mum’s friend taking me to see the movie at the cinema and boy that was a thrill.

Newer movies include Tarzan with the songs by Phil Collins, The Road to El Dorado –  Kevin Kline and Kenneth Branagh are a great team. Then there’s The little Mermaid, The Lion King, Over the Hedge, Pocahontas and and and.

But a look at the title and you can see my favourite children movies – Tangled & Frozen. Without a doubt. I love the movies, the music, the dialogue, the characters – I could watch it over and over and over.

Hang on – I do watch it over and over πŸ™‚

There you go … if my clock wouldn’t tell me it’s time to go to bed soon, I’d be able to tell you so much more about my favourite kids’ movies. This topic is not finished for me and I can’t wait to find out what the others will post this week.

Okay – Time to give my husband and kids a break – tell me your favourite kid movie so I might take Tangled and Frozen out of the DVD player. I MIGHT !

    I love kids films too. I think my favourite so far has to be Despicable Me and I much prefer Wreck it Ralph to Frozen. In fact I would put tangled before Frozen too. Don’t get me wrong I love Frozen but they overdid it with the singing, which spoilt it a bit for me.

  2. our family owns more kids movies than any other. We are especially fond of the studio Ghibli movies and if you haven’t seen them do yourself a favour. (Howl’s moving castle, kiki’s delivery service, totoro, the cat returns, spirited away, nausicaa,) We are all singing the Frozen soundtrack here and have all the Disney/Pixar and Barbie movies. Even if you are not a fan of the dolls the movies are wholesome family entertainment.

      Hi Cecilia – thank you for stopping by πŸ™‚
      Never even heard of Ghbili movies, I really have to check them out. AND yes, of course, the Barbie movies. It’s hit and miss with them, but there are some truly wonderful ones amongst them. Thanks for mentioning them. I loved the princess and the pauper, i think was the title. I agree, you don’t have to like Barbie dolls, to enjoy the movies. They’re very well done in their message to come across as well.
      PS – still have to get the soundtrack … A MUST ! πŸ˜‰

    I’m so happy they finally did a movie of the Rapunzel story! Tangled has to be my favorite! It was always my favorite fairy tale growing up and if I didn’t have such thin, stringy hair, it would be extra long. πŸ˜‰ There’s a water tower here in Tampa, that looks like a Rapunzel tower. We passed it all the time when I was a kid, and I’d just dream about it. πŸ™‚ Disney did a great job with the movie, but I can’t watch it over and over because William thinks it’s too scary. lol He likes Bolt. Charlie’s a Wizard of Oz lover (though William’s scared of that one too).

    • I have entered the realm of girly movies only during the past decade, since there was not a girl born in my corner of the family for about 33 years before my granddaughters were born. I had boys and even my niece had a son, and then my other son had a son before #1 Son had daughters. New experience!

        lol, These are our first boys for a long time on my side. I didn’t have brothers, my mother didn’t have brothers and her mother didn’t have brothers. Hopefully we don’t go in the same direction with all boys. I’m a girly girl. πŸ˜‰

      Bolt is a lovely story, and John Travolta is great as the dog. From memory the movie’s made it into the back of the cupboard, because it’s quite sad, right?
      Wizard of Oz hasn’t taken off in our family. Just not the girls’ kind of movie. Not sure why. Might be too scary as well?
      Thanks for dropping by, Shea! Great to see you here.

    • Shea, You’ll appreciate this.My husband is from a very large family and all of his sisters played sports.Right after we were married we went to a park, he pulled out a football and expected me to throw it around with him….sooooo not-me. I said,”I’d better have a couple of boys for you really quick!” I did, but then I was the only ‘hen in the rooster-house’, as even the cat and bird were males! When my granddaughters came,I was thrilled to buy pinks and laces!

    I also loved the Rescuers and this version of Robin Hood.
    But for my favorite children’s films, I’d go back nearly a generation: Bambi, Lady and the Tramp, etc. Also liked Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.
    And I enjoyed several of the Shirley Temple films.
    I’ll probably think of more later.

      Finally someone who KNOWS the Rescuers. Such a lovely movie … Now that I’ve talking about it, I might have to get it for the weekend πŸ™‚
      Yes, Bambi, never seen Lady atT, and the usual Disney movies. I can watch them, but they’re not my favourites, really.
      Can’t wait to read your post on Thursday! πŸ˜€

        Do I correctly remember that one of the characters in Rescuers was voiced by Bob Newhart? And one by a Gabor sister?
