Now, Amazon Prime seems to be the most limited streaming service when it comes to this particular section of the virtual video store, but the shelves aren’t totally empty. Steven Spielberg directed this underrated adaptation of the Here comic series in 2011 with fantastic voice work from people like Jamie Bell, Andy Series, and Daniel Craig.
Two versions of this timeless Disney tale are on Amazon Prime, the 1961 musical and the 1986 TV movie with Drew Barrymore and Keanu Reeves. Despite the charm of young Keanu, the 1961 version is better, a vibrant classic for all ages that stars Ray Bolder, Tommy Sands, Annette Monticello, and Ed Wynn.
Travis Knight of Lanka fame (Bubo and the Two Strings) directed the best Transformers' movie in this unexpectedly joyous spin off of the massive Hasbro series of films. It’s a movie with the same kind of family /adventure spirit as ’80s classics of the genre, buoyed by fun performances from Hailed Seinfeld and John Cent.
A nominee for the Oscar for Best Animated Film (it lost to Frozen), the 2012 gem is based on a series of books by the Belgian author Gabrielle Vincent. Dante himself had some issues with the final product, which was rushed to meet a release date and then fell in the big shadow of Back to the Future, but the film gained an audience over the years, in no small part because of the careers that Hawks and Phoenix would develop.
Directed by Brad Silvering, Jim Carry stars as Count Olaf, the villain of the piece, who terrorizes the Baudelaire family, including Klaus (Liam Aiken), Violet (Emily Browning), and Sunny (Kara and Shelby Hoffman). Will Ferrell voices the title character, a super villain who actually wins the battle against his foe, Metro Man (Brad Pitt), and realizes that he has nothing else to do.
It’s filled with great physical humor from Nathan Lane and Lee Evans, who crib their style from classic comedy duos like Laurel & Hardy and Abbott & Costello. Range is a chameleon who stumbled into a town called Dirt in this inventive riff on the Western genre that plays equally to children and adults.
Animation great Don Blush made his directorial debut with this twisted 1982 fantasy film, proving that he wasn’t going to make movies that talked down or coddled his audience. Adapted from Robert C. O’Brien’s novel, it turns the existence of average field mice into an elaborate fantasy world.
Take a break from the escapism and show your kids something culturally resonant and unforgettable in John Sales’s version of a classic Irish legend. With breathtaking cinematography by Haskell Wexler, this is the story of a girl in Ireland who hears that her brother was swept away by a selfie when he was a baby.
The great Joe Dante (Gremlins) directed this 1998 sci-fi/ family film about toy soldiers that not only come to life but essentially go to war with each other. Frank Angela and Tommy Lee Jones lend their excellent voices to the little guys and Kirsten Dust plays one of the non-toy characters.
It’s the story of a boy named Tito, whose dad is developing a machine that can translate the songs of birds, but there’s also some dark post-apocalyptic stuff about an epidemic of fear. The last film from Jean-Pierre Jennet, the visionary director behind The City of Lost Children and Amelie, is this strange 2013 3-D adaptation of the book by Ran Larsen.
Kevin James stars as, yes, a zookeeper who is unlucky in love but adored by the animals at work, which are voiced by the likes of Jon Area, Sylvester Stallone, Adam Sandler, and many more.
