Rating Title/Year Author
4/10 Hotel Transylvania (2012) Cynthia Fuchs Kids might be briefly entertained by the early onslaught of monsters, but the plot concerning the over-anxious father is soon tedious, especially as Sandler repeats the corny Dracula voice he's been doing since his Saturday Night Live days. EDIT

ParaNorman (2012) Cynthia Fuchs Norman (Kodi Smit-McPhee) loves zombie movies, monster movies, and all other kinds of movies about dead people, the grosser and gooier the better. EDIT

Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012) Cynthia Fuchs Here the franchise that recycles other kids' movies recycles itself. EDIT

Secret of the Wings (2012) Cynthia Fuchs Even if fairies stories tend to be formulaic - fairy is happy, fairy gets in trouble, fairy gets out of trouble and learns a lesson - this one introduces the bold-ish concept of the sisters' bond rather than the usual marriage plot. EDIT

Frankenweenie (2012) Cynthia Fuchs Victor's relationship with Sparky is lovely, even when the revivified dog corpse is stitched together with thick black thread and his tail or ear falls off. EDIT

Real Steel (2011) Cynthia Fuchs This much is clear as soon as they meet: father and son have matching attitudes, both resentful of their sudden connection and very tough on the outside even as they're really vulnerable. EDIT

Dolphin Tale (2011) Cynthia Fuchs Sawyer's interactions with Winter make the movie fun for kids especially - an intelligent animal connects with a boy in need of attention and affection. EDIT

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) Cynthia Fuchs Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) wants to go to war. It's 1942, and he's a scrawny kid from Brooklyn, too scrawny, according to army doctors, to join up. EDIT

The Smurfs (2011) Cynthia Fuchs Everyone knows the Smurfs sing all day - and also that their song is repetitive and annoying. EDIT

Glee the Concert Movie (2011) Cynthia Fuchs The kids from Glee take to the concert stage in Glee 3D Concert Movie, singing and dancing and smiling to beat the band. EDIT

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D (2011) Cynthia Fuchs The stars of the old Spy Kids movies are no longer kids, of course. Spy Kids 3D: Game Over was released way back in 2003. EDIT

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010) Cynthia Fuchs We might all be grateful for the persnickety Eustace, who doubts the existence of Narnia even when he lands splat in it. EDIT
