11. Toy Story
Toy Story 2 (1999) In the film, Woody is stolen by a toy collector, prompting Buzz Lightyear and his friends vowing to rescue him. However, Woody finds the idea of immortality in a museum tempting. The film returns many of the original characters and voices from Toy Story and introduces several new characters, including Jessie, Barbie, and Mrs. Potato Head.
Toy Story 3 (2010) The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
♥ A movie that tells about true friendship and self worth and a bit of jealousy in between. True friendship was when they rescued Woody no matter what and how far it takes. Self worth was when Woody doesn't want to be just a play toy - he wants to be something else that will make him feel worthy. And yes, from the first movie, there had been a jealousy when Buzz came, Andy loved Buzz than Woody. In the end, they figured it out and be the best of friends.
"We toys can see everything, so play nice."
10. Gnomeo and Juliet (2011)
The greatest love story ever told, starring...garden gnomes? In the upcoming "Gnomeo & Juliet," Shakespeare's revered tale gets a comical, off-the-wall makeover. The neighboring gardens of Montague and Capulet are at war, but the gnomes, Gnomeo and Juliet, are in love.
♥ I truly enjoyed this movie. It was quite unbelievable yet it makes me wonder what if those garden displays really become alive at night time or when no one else is in sight? I think that's really interesting and weird at the same time.
"Every day they sit and wait. But when we're away their adventure begins."
9. Rio (2011)
From the makers of the hit Ice Age series comes Rio, a comedy adventure about taking a walk on the wild side. Blu is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly, living a comfortable life with his owner and best friend Linda in the small town of Moose Lake, Minnesota. When Blu meets the fiercely independent Jewel, he takes off on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro with this bird of his dreams.
♥ So that's Blu, who fell in love unexpectedly and would go anywhere just to be Jewel - the bird of his dreams, even if he cannot even fly.
"He's going to the wildest, most magical place on earth ...home."
8. Coraline (2009)
An adventurous young girl walks through a secret door and discovers a parallel reality that is eerily similar to the life she already knows, yet deeply unsettling in a number of ways.
♥ At first, i find this movie very unusual. I didn't watched it when it was newly released. I guess just a year ago after it was. For kids to watch this, it may be quite scary for them. Especially with the fake mother with button eyes. Sounds unreal but i love the moral lesson of the story. When you wish or want something, be sure to be responsible for the outcome and circumstances it may bring.
"Be careful what you wish for."
7. The Princess and the Frog (2009)
A fairy tale set in Jazz Age-era New Orleans and centered on a young woman named Tiana and her fateful kiss with a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again.
♥ Randomly downloaded this online years ago, it was an entertaining movie. I have had a few laughs over it. Especially the part when they both become a frog. No wonder, love comes the least you expect it to be. It happens when it happens and you meet the love of your life by the magic of fate. Oh well.
"Every love story begins with a kiss."
6. Up (2009)
By tying thousands of balloons to his home, 78-year-old Carl sets out to fulfill his lifelong dream to see the wilds of South America. Russell, a wilderness explorer 70 years younger, inadvertently becomes a stowaway.
♥ Very heart warming story. it got me teary-eyed, almost.

2. Brave (2012)
Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse.
♥ It's not everytime that we are given the chance to change our fate, and if we do, sometimes it happens by force or because we are left with no choice at all. Bottomline, we all need to be responsible for our own actions and accept results from the choices we make. Brave is a good movie that being selfish sometimes can make us be more selfless at the end.
"Change your fate."
1. Tangled (2010)
The magically long-haired Rapunzel has spent her entire life in a tower, but now that a runaway thief has stumbled upon her, she is about to discover the world for the first time, and who she really is.
♥ And my number 1 favorite is Tangled. Yey! Why? Because i find this movie really very entertaining. Most of the scenes give me a really good laugh especially the part of Flynn Rider and Maximus, the horse chasing each other and all. It may sound unbelievable but i have watched this movie over 10 times and it still make me laugh like it was the first time.
"They're taking adventure to new lengths."
