The Best Movies For Your Family
Before we get started, let us tell you about something. Each of the movies we’re going to explore in this section is available on various streaming platforms. However, if you haven’t subscribed to them, you can download them from Pirate Bay for free!
The Lion King (1994)
An absolute classic – The Lion King explores the growth from a youthful pretender to a regal presence of a lion cub, Simba. To make the story even more enjoyable, the director has also thrown in a hissable villain, Scar, and the dynamic duo of Timon and Pumba.
Also, a fun fact – if you’ve read Shakespeare’s Hamlet, you might find its essence during the initial period of this movie!
Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone (2001)
Since its inception, Harry Potter has always been the fan-favorite. However, if you want to introduce your kids to this fantastic magical journey, make sure to start from the first movie.
Here, you’ll learn about how Harry, the protagonist, finds out that he has magical powers and embarks on his journey to Hogwarts. If your little ones love genres like fantasy or adventure, this movie series will be highly recommended to them!
Despicable Me (2010)
Despicable Me tells us a story about a budding “villain,” Gru, who aims to steal the moon. However, his life soon turns upside down when he adopts three children. It is, in essence, one of the most heartwarming story arcs ever, especially for a real-life father.
Also, the comedy sequences of the movie are on-point, thanks to Steve Carell’s brilliant performance and, obviously, the minions.
The Goonies (1985)
Yes, it’s, indeed, an oldie, but still a goldie.
Well… sorry for the pun, but we do consider The Goonies to be an excellent family flick for various reasons.
Well, whether it’s about edge-of-the-seat thrills, everlasting friendship, or hidden treasure – the movie’s got it all. Of course, as an added charm, you’ll see the youngest version of Josh Brolin as well!
The story of Dr. Dolittle is about an eccentric veterinarian who is capable of communicating with various animals.
So, where’s the fun in that?
Yes, we agree that the plot may sound a little whacky at first, but the comic reliefs of the movie are perfect. We’re pretty sure that your kids are going to enjoy the conversations between the doctor and the ecstatic furries!
E.T. – The Extra-Terrestrial is a classic science-fiction story of an otherworldly being stranded on Earth. As a parent, you’ll adore the nostalgia throwback of Drew Barrymore’s baby-face and her friendship with E.T.
Just remember, the movie contains mild swearing and a few moments of sadness. Hence, it will be the best possible option for kids over the age of 10.
Stand By Me (1986)
Unlike the previous movies on our list, Stand By Me explores darker themes of friendship and togetherness. The story of the film follows a writer who recounts the days of 1950s Oregon – his childhood – after the passing of his best friend.
The movie is pretty upstart from the beginning and strikes an excellent balance between grown-up drama, adventure, and cute River Phoenix!
