When it comes to movies when you become a parent, you don’t really have that much of a choice. Most of the movies you tend to watch with your kids are mostly going to be animated and they’ll get replayed … way too many times. My son takes over the TV most of the time, sometimes we allow it and sometimes he just turn it on his own. You can’t really underestimate kids of this generation, they already know how to unlock your phone easily. Here’s a list of movies, my son forced me to watch with him way too many times to count but I have to admit that I enjoy the hidden adult humor in each one:
I’m not sure why my son adores this movie but I was intrigued to see how interested he was in the music used. It has plenty of classics that would be considered too old for millennials but my son memorizes them, building his music taste a bit too early which I don’t mind.
Those yellow pill shaped creatures became the most lovable characters all the sudden from the movie Despicable Me, they look oddly cute and talk funny. My son discovered this movie from OSN channel and he’s been repeating it over 100 times, obviously took him time to say the word Minions so he used to call this movie Banana.
After he got introduced to the minions in the spin-off movie, I made him watch all three parts of the original movie and again he’s been repeating it over and over. Mostly being picky about the second part since the minions are more loud and purple, I mean I enjoy that part the most as well so it’s not all bad.
I don’t want to be the stereotypical mother and say boys must like cars and girls must like dolls but my son just adores cars, in fact he memorizes the car logos and says who drives that certain car regardless of size or color. Of course he’ll be fascinated about a movie that is all about cars and screams “MOM’S CAR” every time he sees the hippy VW car.
I was so happy to see that he got into this movie because it’s my all time favorite Pixar movie ever since I was young, I enjoy watching it with him. It made him question his toys if they move when he’s not around and he keeps asking me about it, it’s good to feed his tiny imagination.
I’m surprised he got into this movie, he wasn’t into superhero stuff until he discovered Spiderman. Probably the red in their outfits that got him interested in this movie but he really enjoys it and sometimes imitates their fighting moves … boys will be boys in the end.
I made him watch the short movie that came out after the second part of Hotel Transylvania which was called Puppy! and since he’s an animal lover like me, that short movie made him love puppies even more. He recently found the full movie on Netflix and he watched it, and then started calling it “Bleh bleh bleh”
Let me know which movies you’ve watched way too many to counts and what have you been enjoying lately, I’d love to introduce my son to more movies.
