Five Favourite Friday... Must See Movies Before You Grow Up

Friday, Friday, Friday, how you sneak up on me each week I'll never know. Anyway it's time for another Five Favourite Friday post and this week we are looking at our favourite Must See Movies Before You Grow Up. I saw a list compiled by Into Film so I'm using this as the basis for my list.  Their list is split into five categories, so I've decided to pick one from each of these sections.

1) Up (2007) [Adventure]
One of my favourite animated films, 'Up' tells the story of an elderly man, who is accompanied by a Boy Scout, trying to realise the dream of living near a grand waterfall.

2) Wallace and Gromit; The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005) [Thrills & Chills]

The first (and probably last) feature film starring Wallace & Gromit, in which they investigate a monstrous creature terrorising the local town.

3) Hook (1991) [Kids Rule!]
With his children abducted by his old enemy Captain Hook, an adult Peter Pan has to return to Neverland to rescue his children with the help of the Lost Boys.

4) The Lion King (1994) [Heroes & Villains]
This Disney classic charts the development of the Simba, heir to Mufasa, and how he handles dealing with his uncle Scar's plot to claim Mufasa's throne.

5) The Jungle Book (1967) [Classics]
Based on Rudyard Kipling's classic story, this film is all about the Mowgli, an abandoned child taken in by a pack of wolves, and his reluctant return to a 'man-village' to save him from Shere Khan, a man-eating tiger.

I'm ashamed to say that I haven't seen all of the films on this list, so it looks like I've got some catching up to do. Which films would you recommend? Let me know in the comments below.

Next week will be Nikki's choice, so I'm looking forwards to seeing what she chooses.
