  1. Can’t wait to see the emoji movie! I think my kids will love it! They always check out new kids movies everyday.

  2. Margarette Puno

    Oh my! I can’t wait for that Emoji movie. It’s fun to watch movies like this, my family loves them too much.

  3. I hadn’t heard about an emoji movie. If you mean animated movies, I do like many of them. You’ve named a couple that I really enjoyed, including Moana, Monsters Inc and Finding nemo

  4. I can’t believe they are making an emoji movie. I really liked Moana, it was a cute movie and my granddaughter likes it.

  5. I’ve watched Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo (my wife went to California last year for Finding Dory and she loved it), and the first Brother Bear movies with my daughter. We loved them! The Fox and the Hound was watched a lot when our youngest son was little. My wife and I recently watched Moana, and we gave the DVD to our grand daughter to watch.

  6. I’ve seen all of these except for A Dinosaur Story. They’re all very cute. I’m not sure if I’ll see Emoji movie or not,but it seems good.

  7. Toy Story – the first one is one my faves. Last year was an amazing year for movies like the Emoji movie and this year is shaping up to be a great family movie year as well.

  8. My husband and I went and saw the original Fox and the Hound. It became one of his all time favorite movies. I think we were the only ones in the movie theater without kids. We were just married and moved to our first Air Force assignment.
