June 2013: Family Movies Playing This Month

June 2013’s family movies have adventure, comedy and a little bit of horror. Your older kids and teens are going to love After Earth and World War Z, while I suggest Monsters University or last month’s Epic for your younger children. But let’s face it, the whole family will like the Disney movie as well, because you know Disney films are ageless. Hec, I can’t wait to get it on DVD already and I haven’t seen the whole movie yet.

After Earth I know that I had this movie on the page for family movies in May, 2013, but it came out on 5/31… so I need it to be here too so you know to go see it, right? Synopsis: A crash landing leaves Kitai Raige and his father Cypher stranded on Earth, 1,000 years after events forced humanity’s escape. With Cypher injured, Kitai must embark on a perilous journey to signal for help.

Kings of Summer A teen flick that is rated R and is a comedy. It got a lot of great reviews and is rated so strongly because of language and sexual situations. But, if you are a dad of a teen son and you need someone-on-one time, this flick would be a good choice. After watching the trailer, you may see me and my daughter in the theater as well. Synopsis: Three teenage friends, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods and living off the land.

Man of Steel Synopsis: I love that man! Fell head over heals back when I was 13 years-old. Superman and Lois Lane are one of my favorite romantic couples… but i don’t think that is what the creators of Man of Steel had in mind when making this adaptation of the comic book character. An action adventure movie that is rated PG-13 for a little violence and scary parts. Synopsis: A young journalist is forced to confront his secret extraterrestrial heritage when Earth is invaded by members of his race.


June 21st

Monsters University They’re back!! And we have morphed back in time to see how these guys got to be the best monsters of the closet. Rated G and good for the whole family. The only thing missing is Boo 🙁 Synopsis: A look at the relationship between Mike and Sulley during their days at Monsters University — when they weren’t necessarily the best of friends.

World War Z This feels like another Independence Day slash Walking Dead type movie to me – and I’m loving it! It’s PG-13, so bring your tweens and teens with their friends and sit in the back pretending not to know them. But, be sure to take the younger ones to see something else. Epic will still be playing and Monster’s University will be out. Synopsis: United Nations employee Gerry Lane traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments, and threatening to decimate humanity itself.
