The Croods

The Crood´s cave is destroyed forcing them to search for a new home. They begin a journey that will take them through spectacular landscapes and fantastic creatures.

Reviews: 8/10

Parents seem to enjoy this film as much as their children. Funny from start to end with incredible animations proper of Dreamworks and a huge budget, the Croods make a good competition to the Ice Age series. A better title and feature poster would´ve attracted more viewers.

      Downloading movies is very easy these days, and they are top quality. This has actually made going to the theather more fun because you only go to spend quality time with your girlfriend or kids.

      Actually, I love "SHREK"...this movie teaching us how to be a humble person. Beautiful and handsome are not everything. I think the most important thing is how to be a good person and we can help others. Thank you very much for beautiful words to my hub. You are GREAT person as well. Nice to meet you here. Send my warm greeting to your family. Take care!

      Best regards,

      Never heard of Spirit before. I see its a Disney movie. If we include anime (cinema standard) my favorites would be Spirited Away and Howls Moving Castle, amazing movies. Oh, and you have to include Grave of the Fireflies, makes you cry.

      I just remembered -- actually Spirit is my favorite -- the one about the horse. Rio is my second favorite, so far.

      Wow, so many yet for me to see! Epic was good. Brave was good (not on your list because it came out a year or so ago.) So far Rio is my favorite and I think I saw somewhere that Rio2 is coming one day. Nemo 2 also.

      Voting up, sharing and awesome.

      I´m dying to see Epic. The Croods look pretty lame from the poster picture. But the reviews are incredible.

      I'm looking forward to Epic, Frozen, and Tarzan, but could take or leave these silly-looking sequels. And Croods doesn't look very good either. I mean, why bother when you already have the Flintstones on Boomerang to watch? :p

      Animated movies rock. I´m currently catching up with anime films after reading a recommendation hub. There´s just much to see in the film world. Rango, Howls moving castle, The Grave of the Fireflies, Akira, Heavy Metal, and DC superhero animated... these are my recommendations

      Can a grown man love animated movies? You would have to ask my wife how much of a man I am, but I love animated movies. I was secretly happy to have a son so that I could have a built in excuse to watch them. Now, I watch them, and he goes into the other room. Oh well, there is always grandchildren.
