Well, it’s suffice to say that the 90’s was the best time to grow up as all the best movies for both kids and families came during that while. If you’re a kid who grew up during that period, then you’ll surely agree with that statement. It was during this time when Disney and Pixar was at its prime, consistently making good and memorable movies. A lot of you probably have fond memories watching some of these films during the holidays on that VHS tape with your entire family’s eyes glued to the TV screen.
The great thing about these movies is that they really didn’t need to rely on applying a ridiculous amount on CGI or visual effects and over-the-top characters to capture the attention of the children. Their forte was to tell us great, fascinating stories which made us laugh but also brought tears to our eyes.Well, the kids of this generation certainly missed those movies but it’s up to you to show these films to them one day as some of these are now all-time classics. Now most of these films here are animated films but still these are the sort of films made for viewers of all ages and not just targeted towards kids. To prepare yourself for some nostalgic, here’s the list of top family movies from the 1990s.
14. The Iron Giant (1999)
Brad Bird, known for making some memorable animated films throughout the years, made his directorial debut with this movie. Set in the 1950’s during the Cold War, it follows a young boy who befriends a giant alien robot from outer space. When threatened by an American agent who vows to destroy the robot, it’s up to the kid to protect the robot from danger. Yes, it does remind us of E.T. but this film beautifully evokes the 1950’s, the animation is gorgeous, the characters feel real and the musical score is soothing to our ears. For a film which isn’t made by Disney, this film is funny, exhilarating and touching as well. And what can we say about that climax? Without giving anything away, it’s a shame that this film doesn’t get the recognition it deserves.
