10. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs– Oh my word. Don’t watch this if you’re addicted to eating like I am. I can’t stop my mouth from watering at the ice cream wonderland, the giant pancakes falling from the sky, the raining hamburgers!!! I need to watch this right now…
11. Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole– I can’t get over how beautiful this animation is! It makes me feel like I’m flying with the owls!

14. Coraline– Alright, I’ll be honest. Even I, as an adult, find this movie to be a little bit creepy… But it’s got a great message! Maybe good for Halloween?
15. Rio 2– I have always wanted to go to Brazil, and this movie brings it right to my living room! The music will get you up and dancing like you’re at Carnival (keep it PG though, people).
16. How to Train Your Dragon– For anyone who has ever dreamt of having a pet dragon (I’ve always been more of a unicorn person myself), this one’s for you!
17. Wreck-it Ralph– Find your inner video gamer (or sweet tooth) with this fun adventure!
18. Hotel Transylvania– Count Dracula, notorious blood-sucking vampire, actually makes a pretty great dad in this movie. I think I’d like to come to one of his parties…
19. Minions– I know I’ve already mentioned minions before, but how could I leave out the Despicable Me spinoff? I mean, c’mon, minions! They’re adorable and hilarious!
20. Kungfu Panda– I really relate to this panda. He loves to eat, I love to eat. He loves to sleep, I love to sleep. He’s clumsy, I’m clumsy. Perfect movie for anyone like this.
