Movies my daughter watched multiple times - 2012

Tangled (2010)

The film that started it all. She watched this every day of December 2011, continued to ask to watch it throughout 2012 (she calls it "Rapunzel" instead of Tangled) & now I've got all the dialogue memorized even though I've only paid full attention to it once.

The Muppets (2011)

My daughter & I watched all 3 seasons of The Muppet Show that are on DVD & she loved it enough to watch all episodes at least 3 times as the year went on. So it wasn't long before we started adding the films to our collection to watch with her, and this was the first of them. (When she wants to watch it she says, "I want to watch Walter.")

This is the first film she uses the title to refer to it when she wants to watch it.

The Lion King (1994)

She's asked for this one more times than she has actually watched it. She watched it with her mom first, then I let her watch it once without paying attention to it, then finally I sat down & watched it with her. I really feel like it's too dark for her to be watching just yet, so I've offered her alternative movies whenever she's asked to watch it again.

Kinda wish I'd kept track of how many times she's watched this, The Great Muppet Caper, and The Muppets. She went through a phase where she bounced between all 3 films on a regular basis, and if she's got a clear favorite there's no way I can tell. Maybe she loves all of them the same.

Ice Age (2002)

She likes Scrat the best (to the point she gets upset whenever he loses his nut), and I think her 2nd favorite character is the baby. She gets scared by the scene with the dodos for some reason, which makes it interesting since I laugh hysterically during that scene.

She loves the music most in this one, which is easily understandable. But this was the first non-Muppets film where she insisted on knowing the names of the characters.

Since she fell in love with Dr. Seuss this year, I decided to see if she'd like this movie. She watched it constantly for at least a month.

She's watched this a few times, but it seems to be her least favorite of the Muppets' films. She tends to lose interest at various parts, & gets most excited when the Sesame Street characters show up during the wedding scene. Of the ones she's seen it's my least favorite too, and I haven't bothered to sit down & watch it all the way through with her.

Her mom read her the book over several bedtimes, and afterwards I noticed we had this movie sitting on our shelf (we'd picked it up used for $1). Evidently my daughter is the only one of us to actually watch this at this point. I've seen parts of it, but mostly I've had other things to do whenever she's watched it so I haven't properly sat down with it yet.

I was surprised she liked this one. It first caught her attention in a store display & she seemed transfixed, so I sat down with her to watch it soon after. She watched it every day for a couple of weeks.

Toy Story (1995)

We'd actually watched this one last December, but she wasn't into it then. Tried again in November & she was hooked. She loves Woody & Buzz.

Toy Story 2 (1999)

Since she liked the first one, I decided to see if she'd like this one (she liked it better than the first film last December, if the amount of attention she paid to it was any indication, but hadn't seen it again since). Midway through it she asked to watch the other one instead, but I convinced her to stick with it & the next day she asked to watch "the cowgirl movie" again.

Toy Story 3 (2010)

After watching the previous 2 films about 5 times each, she asked for the 3rd. I think it's safe to say at this point that she'd watch anything if Woody & Buzz were in it.

Bolt (2008)

Wasn't sure whether this one would make this list, as the first time she watched it she asked for a different movie midway through. I convinced her to stick it out though, & the next time she mentioned it I sat & watched it with her. And now she likes it.

We picked up a box set of Christmas TV specials primarily for this & Rudolph, after my daughter started geeking out every time she saw anything remotely Christmas-y. She watched this once that I know of in November & then multiple times in December.

Elf (2003)

Wasn't sure how well this would go over, but as it turned out it was the first live action film without muppets that she enjoyed (ah, but there is a little animation, eh?). We watched it when we put up our Christmas decorations around the house, and the next day she asked to watch it again. She loves the theme music & has a tendency to randomly sing modified versions of the song Buddy sings when he first meets his dad. :)
the giraffe's rating:

Clearly my daughter got into the Christmas spirit. Nice to know that this one, which I loved growing up, can still be enjoyed all these years later.

She calls this "the kitten movie". In early December Netflix added some Disney content, which included this film. I gave her 4 options & she picked this one which she enjoyed so long as there were animals on screen (doesn't care for the human-centric bits evidently). She asked for it again shortly after her first viewing, so I guess that means it's a hit which is good because she wound up getting the DVD for Christmas (which she watched once before the end of the year).

She likes to sing "Everybody Wants to Be a Cat" which is pretty stinkin' cute.

She loved this one, apart from the Winter Warlock which scared her. But then it's about Santa Claus, which she has said is her "favorite thing ever" (though to be fair she has said many things are her "favorite thing ever" so who knows where exactly Santa rates).

Mom read her Winnie the Pooh over several bedtimes, so it was inevitable that she'd want to watch any film featuring the characters. After watching it the first time she kept running around the house imitating Tigger's laugh, which is pretty adorable.

Peter Pan (1953)

Immediately after the 1st time we watched Peter Pan, she started talking excitedly about Pan & helping him find his shadow. Then she ran to our back door & insisted we let him in the house. No surprise then that she wanted to watch this again the next day (and a few times since).

Dumbo (1941)

She watched this one twice over a weekend when she was sick (and I was on the verge of being so).
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 6517 Average listal rating (4689 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 8

Well, this was a surprise. She insisted on watching this one, then kept getting scared by it the first time through. And yet she kept asking to watch it again and again & has now seemingly gotten over the parts she originally found scary.

Add items to section

Films she saw in a theatre

Figured I should make this a separate section since this was her first year for watching movies in the theatre, regardless of whether she got to watch them more than once.

Finding Nemo (2003)

This was my daughter's first time to watch a movie in the theatre. Alamo Drafthouse has "Baby Day" on Tuesdays for all showings before 2pm, where you can take your little kids & they're allowed to talk during the movie if they can't hold back. It was perfect for her, and she was very well behaved aside from the occasional comments & questions as the film went on (mostly she was quiet though). She stayed in her seat almost the entire time (wanted to sit on my lap for a few minutes at one point), and when it ended she sat all the way through the credits & asked me if we could watch another movie before we even left the room. Definitely my kid. ;)
--from my September 2012 list

NOTE: We did manage to pick up a copy on the cheap later in the year, so she has seen this movie more than once now.

If she had her way we would have watched it more than once, as she keeps talking about watching it again.

People who added this item 995 Average listal rating (661 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.3

Also only seen once, but she talked about Jack Frost through the end of the year. Odds are we'll see this one again in 2013.
the giraffe's rating:

The title pretty much sums it up. I wanted to make this list to keep track of the films she clearly enjoyed throughout 2012, especially once I realized she was really into movies & I hadn't been doing a good job of keeping track of EVERY movie she watched. In fact if I'd started this list sooner I could have kept track of the films she didn't like to whatever degree. So while this list is mainly for me, I figured I'd share for anyone else that may be interested.


Listed in chronological order by the first time she watched each.
