We all have one … A Favourite. What’s yours?

After days and days of sick kids, we sat down to watch a movie yesterday afternoon and to just chill. My eldest picked the movie, one we have watched a million times. And I thought to myself, am I really upset about having to watch this movie … Again? No.

Hands down , my favorite animated movie is ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’. Don’t get me wrong, 1 is good, but 2 is better! And not just because I enjoy the story, but the picture, visuals and score (songs for those of you who are less cultured than me, says me, sitting here, stuffing my face with popcorn that the kids tipped over onto the carpet three times already!) are all A-Ma-Zing! Amazing. It also appeals to my sense of humour so really, it’s the perfect movie. It really is entertaining and fantastic to watch!

My Top 10 Favourite Animated Movies

So, after many hours and much deliberation, MY top favorite animated movies are:

  1. How to Train Your Dragon 2
  2. How To Train Your Dragon 1 
  3. Madagascar 3
  4. The Secret Life Of Pets 
  5. Shark Tail
  6. Frozen (obviously)
  7. Beauty & the Beast (The original)

  1. Mine: Ferngully, Aladdin, Mulan, Tangled,
    My eldest’s: Fergully, Mulan, The Little Mermaid, Home, Big Hero 6
    My Youngest’s: (hates Ferngully, finds Mulan boring) The Rise of the Guardians, Frozen, Bolt, and (though technically not a movie) Gravity Falls.
    The six year old almost always wins.
