10 Top Kids Movies for 2015

2015 so far has been a good year to take the kids to the movies. There have been some really good movies for the whole family that have come out, and there will be even more in the second half of the year.

Some of the best movies to come out the first half of the year were Minions, Inside Out, Avengers 2, Jurassic World, Pitch Perfect 2. There was a good selection and variety for all members and ages of the family.


1. Minions

For youngest children, Minions is a great choice. Building off the Despicable Me franchise, Minions explores the history of the minions and their lives immediately before working for Gru.

Minions Kevin, Stuart and Bob explore the world in the effort to become the minions of the most despicable villain, Scarlet Overkill, voiced by Sandra Bullock.

Overall, this was a great film that had enough jokes for kids and parents alike, and it will be a welcome addition to your video library once it hits home release.

2. Inside Out

Continuing the Pixar tradition of producing well done, thought provoking movies, Inside Out was released. While it was compared to 90s sitcom, Herman’s Head, Inside Out showed the inner feelings and potential turmoil of a young girl, Riley as she struggles to cope with her father moving the family to San Francisco for work.

The five emotions, Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness all are present and do a wonderful job of showing us how children see the world and how stressful and challenging new environments and situations can be.

3. Avengers 2: Age of Ultron

Teenagers found that had great choices at the theater as well. The first movie for teens would be Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. It is debatable if this movie is better than the first movie. It is definitely more serious with joking moments, but one of the best points of the movie is how it explored the relationships between the Avengers.

A fun ride for everyone in the family, Avengers 2 has something to appreciate from the beautiful scenes to a great story of preventing Ultron from destroying all life on the planet. Avengers 2 definitely continues the strong trend of movie blockbusters for Marvel.

4. Jurassic World

The second major blockbuster for 2015 was Jurassic World. Building off the success of the franchise and new megastar, Chris Pratt, Jurassic World continues the JP legacy of tampering with the world around us and potentially paying a major price.

Jurassic World is a great movie. It does a great job of showing us dinosaurs that we have never seen before, but there can be moments where you may wish for more dinosaurs. As Pratt and co. are stalked around the island by the Indominus Rex, a genetically engineered dino, it begins a thrill ride which grips you for the second half of the movie.

While this is a very good movie, it may not be appropriate for children under 10 as the dinos can be can be quite scary, particularly when the park breaks down as you know it will.

5. Pitch Perfect 2

The fifth movie is Pitch Perfect 2. This sequel builds on the first movie as the a cappella group, the Barden Bellas. All the stars are back from the first movie to show how the group has progressed to their senior year of college.

In order to show their potential, the Bellas enter an international competition that American teams regularly lose. It is a fun movie as the girls work and have fun through out.

7. Fantastic Four

Continuing the Marvel parade of movies, Fantastic Four is being relaunched with a new cast. Going over the origins of the super foursome, this movie has the potential to be the beginning of another major franchise line for Marvel.

More serious than the Fantastic Four movies of several years ago, this movie looks to present the team in a new light and build towards more movies in the future.

10. The Peanuts Movie

As the year looks to the Holiday season, one movie that will garner a lot of attention is The Peanuts Movie. While most of us remember the classic Peanuts television specials, this is new territory for Charlie Brown and the Peanuts Gang as it enters a longer run time and 3-D animation.

One thing is for certain, Snoopy and Woodstock will be ready to search the skies for the Red Baron. This should be a good film for the entire family.
