Every month, streaming services like Netflix, and Hulu say goodbye to loads of movies and television and add a slew of new options for subscribers. Here at FamilyTech, we take a look at the incoming films and pick some that look like a good fit for family viewing. And you know this already, but keep it age appropriate, just like you would with the chores you dole out. Here are some choices for August 2017.
Sing (2016) – Netflix
In a town with no humans, just animals, a koala named Buster Moon realizes he will soon lose his theater if he cannot turn his luck around. He comes up with a plan to host a singing competition, where the winner will receive $100,000. Queue this one up for some family fun this weekend!
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989) – Hulu
Bill and Ted have to pass their history class, or else. To create the best presentation ever, these two seemingly, and sometimes justifiably clueless guys from San Dimas travel through time to assemble the cast needed to change their own futures. A great film you probably loved when you were younger is one your kids will love too.
The Addams Family (1991) – Netflix
It doesn’t seem like 25 years since the beloved Addams Family jumped from old-school TV series to the big screen. The plot has con artists planning to fleece the Addams using an accomplice who claims to be their long-lost uncle. It’s a fun film with some very memorable characters and is a great fit for the next family night in your home.
Charlotte’s Web (2006) – Hulu
It was kind of a big deal with the beloved children’s book Charlotte’s Web got a big screen adaptation back in 2006, and it’s still a big deal today. Introduce or re-introduce your kids to this fun film that can help bring the book they probably are familiar with to life.
Spider-Man (2002) – Hulu
Before every other film was a super hero movie, the Spider-Man franchise started off with a bang in 2002. And now that Spider-Man Homecoming is probably on your watch list, it’s fun to go back and see this interpretation of the familiar storyline and character. Plan on taking it in this weekend with your older kids.
