5.Night At The Museum (2006 – 2014)
A newly recruited night security guard at the Museum of Natural History discovers that an ancient curse causes the animals and exhibits on display to come to life and wreak havoc. All these films are consistently funny and eye catching at the same time. I know Robin Williams have a small roles in this film but it certainly elevates this film, the supporting casting is excellent and that is the key to these films.
In a robot world, a young idealistic inventor travels to the big city to join his inspiration’s company, only to find himself opposing its sinister new management. Coming of age type of film which is generally moving and funny, one of the supporting vocal talent is Robin Williams and he bring out comic one liner, it is one of those film that is purely entertaining from start to finish.
When Captain James Hook kidnaps his children, an adult Peter Pan must return to Neverland and reclaim his youthful spirit in order to challenge his old enemy. Eye catching and a rip-roaring adventure film which is captivating, Dustin Hoffman is certainly memorable as the villain Hook as he is perfectly sinister, overall this film is certainly gripping and it is definitely enjoyable.
A kind-hearted street urchin and a power – hungry Grand Vizier vie for a magic lamp that has the power to make their deepest wishes come true. Being a Disney film they are consistently really good, this also suitable for all ages and a family viewing plus the soundtrack is truly spectacular. Robin Williams is perfect as the Genie as the rest of the vocal talent is outstanding and the animation itself look gorgeous.
When two kids find and play a magical board game, they release a man trapped in it for decades and a host of dangers that can only be stopped by finished the game. Definitely a film you can revisit anytime you wanted, I actually growing up watching this film and I still loved this film and the CGI/SFX is amazing, it will thrilled you and it is a fun filled film which is so watchable from the first frame.
