After years later, we get the exact mortal and ethical questions of cloning dinosaurs answered.

Turns out, Ian Malcolm was right all long?

While not as grim, as say The Empire Strikes Back, there are moments that do linger longer after the film ends.

Plus, just how pure are intentions of the Jedis anyway?

King Kong (2005)
You believe an ape can fall from great heights, realistically.

Plus, Skull Island.

For a Star Wars film, it's pretty heavy. And with a high death count too.

Think an intergalactic version of Platoon, Full Metal Jacket, and Apocolypse Now.

People who added this item 2724 Average listal rating (1836 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.3
Big (1988)
Not to get into finer details, but the film does greater questions.

The first being, the ramifications of Josh and Susan’s relationship.

It’s best not to think of it.

People who added this item 269 Average listal rating (196 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.9
The Lion King (2019)
Enjoy, the death of Mufasa in glorious live action.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
The film’s title, gives it away. Plus the idea, that lack of parental supervision, being fun seems good on paper.

People who added this item 1149 Average listal rating (713 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 5.6
Dennis’s shenanigan are presented for humour, but in real life, can greviously harm people.

Plus, Switchblade Sam.

Poor, poor James. For some reason, horrible things happen to kids, in Roald Dahl stories.

This one is one is no exception. First James, is up rooted from an happy childhood, after his parents are killed by a rampaging rhino, then he is placed in care with the meanest aunts ever, then there is the mechanical shark, that tries to kill James, and his new found friends.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
I mean sure, they end up okay. But the journey is incredible and dangerous.

Balto (1995)
Based on a true story, more or less....

The ending, is definitely a tear jerker.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
What do the Care Bears do for encore? Help save a kid, possessed by an evil villain named Darkheart.

You heard correctly, possessed.

Darkheart is pretty much light weight, compared to the Evil Talking Book, from part one. But still the Care Bears, have their work, cut out for them.

Eight Below (2006)
Also based on a true story......

Yikes, there is the "scene".

See kids, who sware, drink beer, and smoke cigarettes?
It's a cute film about a cat and dog, who are friends!

Just don't tell the kids, about the possibile behind the scenes of the animals in the film!

People who added this item 64 Average listal rating (45 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.4
Prancer (1989)
It takes the idea, of hard scrabbled, living on your last dime living pretty seriously given that Jessica and her dad, are almost depression era level broke.

And also, it's best not to think about the film's ending.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 256 Average listal rating (154 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.7
The Bear (1988)
Sure, it's about a cute bear cub, but it's also a cute orphaned bear cub, and one who is in constant danger of but being hunted, by hunters.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 4369 Average listal rating (2975 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7
More considerably violent, than Batman. Plus The Penguin is freaking terrifying.

And Catwoman.

Some how, MacDonald's Happy Meal Toys came out of this film.

People who added this item 1062 Average listal rating (639 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.7
A girl is kidnapped, implied possible death, a cute kitten is abandoned (he does find a new owner), and Bill Sykes.....

He is a horrible person, and bad guy.

People who added this item 3769 Average listal rating (2596 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.8
Hook (1991)
It's not as traumatic as say the Disney version, but still being kidnapped by pirates is not something you would want.

The ending......

I'm not crying, you're crying.

Regardless of the version, you watch it always ends the same way.

Be for warned.

Batman (1989)
Not necessarily a family film, but however kids do love Batman.

It's violent and dark, and then there is The Joker.

An animated Batman film? Sign me up! It's also pretty violent at times too.

Not Tim Burton Batman violent, but still.

The Yearling (1947)
It's a story, about a boy and his pet deer.

You already know, how it ends.
People who added this item 230 Average listal rating (152 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 7
My Dog Skip (2000)
It's a sad fact of life, pets die in the end, of old age.

The film never let's you forget that.

Marley & Me (2008)
It's a cute family film, about a pet dog!

Until it's not.

Don't get attached, to your favourite super hero.

The film takes the word "End Game", very almost literally.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 2557 Average listal rating (1606 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.3
Peter Pan (1953)
There's Captain Hook and his non too subtle threat towards Tiger Lilly, and Tinker Bell, sure she gets killed off, and makes in the end, but still....

And also the very infamous scene/song featuring Indians.

People who added this item 1172 Average listal rating (717 ratings) 4.9 IMDB Rating 5.7
The first film, was somewhat cute, the sequel however takes the whole cute thing, and then substitutes it for one heck of a dark, depressing film.

Mickey Rooney also make a cameo, as one of the saddest looking clowns in film history.

The cute, adorable fox and hound, are still going to be friends, even after every thing that happens, in this movie.

Are they?

But it's all going to be okay in the end, isn't it? They're going to realize they can ignore their societal roles and love each other despite their differences?

Nope! The only happy ending here is that the former friends don't actually murder each other.

Pinocchio (1940)
Hey kids, behave and don't tell lies. Because, if you don't, you'll turn into a donkey, your nose will grow longer, and you might get eaten by a whale.

But not necessarily in that order. When you wish upon a star? More like, when you wish upon a nightmare!

"You boys have had your fun," a shadowy figure yells at the new donkeys. "Now pay for it!"

People who added this item 1157 Average listal rating (710 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.8
Right from the get go, the film is dark and depressing, the main character gets hit by a car and dies (don't worry, he's ok, and comes back ok), Charlie is a bit of a jerk and manipulates the poor girl, to no end, and there is a depiction of hell that is pretty heavy, even for a kids film.

There is also a fair amount of violence, and shooting as well.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 2767 Average listal rating (1833 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 7.7
Coraline (2009)
The alternate world, that Coraline visits and discovers that nearly everyone, and I mean nearly EVERYONE, are puppet/dolls with button eyes, is the stuff that nightmares are made of.

How is this not, a David Lynch film?
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 106 Average listal rating (78 ratings) 3.5 IMDB Rating 3.3
Mac and Me (1988)
This classic scene, right here.


Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
The BBC version, wasn't nearly as dark as the theatrical version, I still like this film, but I have to admit, it could be a bit much at times, from Tilda Swinton's portrayal of the White Witch, to the battle scenes (which thankfully for kids, are too brutal), and Aslen's "death scene".

What? Did you "really" think that he would be killed off for real? Besides, there still the sequels to go!
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
To this very day, the boat ride scene, scares the hell out me, even after the millionth viewing.

Also, demises of the kids, were a bit much to take, even if arguably, they were "asking for it", for not paying attention to the rules. But don't worry, they turn out okay in the end, horribly and mentally scared in the end, but still okay. Kind of sort of.

And also Grandpa Joe, comes off as kind of a jerk.

The chocolate factory, in the film is less of an awesome place to be visiting and more of a lawsuit just waiting to happen.

A very controversial film, from Disney. Want to see it on DVD/Blu Ray?

Well, that's never going to happen.

Dumbo (1941)
The scene in which Mrs. Jumbo, attacks the kids for attacking Dumbo, and is imprisoned for her troubles, is one of the most heart breakingly sad moments of all time. Lesson learned? Kids (but not all kids), can be unreasonably cruel.

The pink elephants? Now, that's a different story, all together.

Also, for some the birds in the film, are uncomfortable stereotypes.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 175 Average listal rating (119 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.7
Pete's Dragon (2016)
It's considerably somber, the bad guys motives are less than subtle, and child abandonment takes center place in the film.

But at least, the dragon is cute.
Agent Kermit D. Fonz's rating:
People who added this item 1882 Average listal rating (1207 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.4
It's one of my favorite kids movies, for me, the scary parts were the Eternal Bog of Stench, the wall of arms, the trash lady, who reminds kind of Aughra, and the giant metal ball of death.

Now, I think of the film, as an odd combination of Muppets and Monty Python, which only seems fitting, since Terry Jones, co wrote the film. That and the puppets, the music, and David Bowie, are some of my favorite parts about the movie.

Shrek (2001)
Duloc, a theme park run by a megalomaniacal ruler. Guess what it's based on?

As a kid, when I first saw the film, I had a love hate relationship, with the movie.

Why?

1) The scene where Artax drowns in the Swamp of Sadness, and Atreyu is helpless to stop it from happening.

2) The moment where the knight, gets obliterated by lasers, and you see his smoldering corpse.

3) One word. The G'Mork!

4) But the cherry, on the top of the delicious sundae, is the film's bad guy. The Nothing. It's not a great monster, or a radioactive lizard. Ir's living, breathing, ominous, sentient, cloud of nothing.

Destroying everything in it's path, and reducing the place to oblivion.

But hey, everything turns out okay, in the end. Bastien, will need to see a psychiatric, one day, but everything turns out okay in the end.

Now, I like watching the movie, but back then you couldn't pay me to watch it again.

Hey, wanna see something really scary? Just watch The NeverEnding Story Part III. Now, that's a scary movie!

Zootopia (2016)
Gentrification, racism, and classisim, are somewhat undercurrents in the film.

Think of it as Chinatown, by the way of cute, cuddly, animals.

People who added this item 503 Average listal rating (387 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.7
Not unlike The Lion King, death isn't brushed over. It's pretty much a given.

Even if a meteor, barely misses the Earth.

A look at family films, that on second glance, are harsher than they appear, and could give Wes Craven, nightmares.

As suggested by, www.babble.com/kid/child-development/kid-movies-disturbing-films-family/?page=2

Along, with my take on the films, if I have seen it.

I also have a few films, I adding along as well.
