Best films for children - 2007 Which Fantasia is better for kids? I'm putting together a list for an article about worthwhile family films most kids probably haven't seen, or even heard of. So far my front-runners include the following: The Court Jester The Kid Brother The Miracle Maker Mr. Bean's Holiday My Neighbor Totoro Peter Pan (2000) The Story of the Weeping Camel Watership Down That's eight. I'd like 10. Movies I currently have listed as runners up include Akeelah and the Bee, A Cat in Paris, Condorman, La Belle et la Bete, Road to Morocco, The Straight Story and What's Up, Doc? Movies mentioned in the article, but which are not candidates for the list -- either because they're too well-known, or because they have close parallels in the list -- include Atlantis (1991), Babies, E.T., Holes, The Many Adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh, The Prince of Egypt, The Princess Bride, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Singin' in the Rain, The Song of Bernadette, The Sound of Music, The Spiderwick Chronicles and The Wizard of Oz, as well as the various Muppet movies and the rest of the Miyazaki canon (of which My Neighbor Totoro is given as representative). I'm hesitating on Akeelah, La Belle et la Bete and The Straight Story, because for the purposes of this piece I'm looking for movies that receptive kids of the right age are likely to glom to on their own, and I feel like those three are more likely to require some adult mediation. Road to Morocco I've only seen once, and that was a long time ago, so I'm not quite confident enough to include it. Condorman is currently unavailable on DVD except at exorbitant prices, so that one may not be quite fair. (It is available from Amazon Instant for under $2. Still, not everyone has a computer screen suitable for watching movies, or the ability to stream the Internet to their TV.) What's Up, Doc? is probably a good contender. Any other thoughts? Suggestions?
