Our family has movie night once a weekend. We make popcorn and watch a movie together. DH and I really look forward to this quiet time in our house and DS loves popcorn! We need some new movie ideas. What are some of your favorites? We have watched polar express, emporers new groove, and chicken little. any other ideas?

I second that! Pretty much anything by Miyazaki is good, although some of his movies may be too violent for some children. Totoro is a sweet film suitable for all ages, and I like that it has scenes of co-sleeping and family bathing (with dad and his two dds, no less).

My favorites were always Beauty and the Beast and The Swan Princess. Might be a little girly for all your boys though.

The Iron Giant is also excellent. And the Miyazaki movies (even DH likes the Miyazaki movies, and he usually hates animated stuff; his favs are Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away).

Me love.gif, DH guitar.gif, and DD baby.gif9/27/10!

: I really like Miyazaki but I definitely wouldn't recommend his movies if your ds scares easily.

Of the Miyazaki movies, My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki's Delivery Service are quite gentle, and The Cat Returns is as well. We love them.

Also The Iron Giant is wonderful, but it is a bit intense.

Kiriku and the Sorceress

The Wallace & Gromit series.

The Chipmunk Adventure

not the version recently released on DVD, if you can help it. they edited out some parts. it's very musical, which I love. not sure if your 2yo would care about it, but all my kids like it (even at 2).

Yes, yes.  I'm fabulous. loveeyes.gif  Moving on...

these are all wonderful! i never get tired of watching them. Princess Mononoke is a little violent for children though.

Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
nightmare before christmas
corpse bride

james and the giant peach, roger rabbit, & space jam are kind of animated hybrids

sword and the stone, alice in wonderland, aristocats, all dogs go to heaven, 101 dalmatians, robin hood, toy story, monsters inc, lilo and stich are some disney movies i like as well.

titan A.E.!!!

ghost in the shell & the animatrix is definitely my favorite anime movies. but thats definitely for adults.
