  1. Have to go with Monsters U. It’s a sequel but they took their time and made it properly. Didn’t rush it out just to make merch $$. Very good.

  2. This year is by far the best for hit animated movies. Croods, Monsters University, Despicable Me 2, Turbo, Planes, and a few others in the fall. The Croods was the best movie so far (Spring, not a Summer one) as it had adventure, funny lines, and new characters. I could easily see a Croods 2 being developed. MU and DM2 were entertaining as they had great characters already developed, but the storylines were flat and a little disappointing. Turbo is a combination of Cars and Rio which my son loved and still draws pictures of the characters.

  3. The 9yo Wonder and I absolutely loved Despicable Me 2 — we even saw it twice in the theater, which really means something at our household. I’m eager to see what happens with Gru, Lucy, and the girls in Despicable Me 3!!

  4. Definitely Monsters University. They did an excellent job of showing how Mike and Sully got to the place they were in at the beginning of Monsters, Inc. without making it look predictable. (In fact, I was sure that the ending was going to go one way all the way up to the point that it didn’t.)

  5. Our kids have seen Epic, Despicable Me 2 and Monsters U and I think they would give the prize of best so far to DM2… But they are eager to see Planes and Turbo so it could change.

  6. My tastes have changed when it comes to cartoons. Before I had kids I like the big sweeping epic Disney shows. Now that my kids are younger I am guess I think of movies in terms of what my kids will like. For us this summer it was Despicable Me 2. Sure the plot was hokey and the story cheesy, but that is part of the fun with a show like that.

    I did like Epic and Turbo just because they were ideas we hadn’t really seen before. Turbo was almost a great movie. I don’t know what kept me from loving it. I just never was into the racing against people part. All of the stuff with the other snails was fun. For some reason I can suspend my disbelief when it comes to talking snails, but not when it comes to those same snails being allowed to race in the Indy 500.

    • ooo, I forgot about the Croods. I really liked that one. The kids didn’t like it as much as I did, but I thought the story was well done. Still probably voting for DM2 though.

  7. I think my 3 year-old enjoyed Despicable Me 2 even more than MU. But he’s fascinated by posters of Turbo, so we’ll have to try that one too.

  8. not sure about this movie, but favorite movie for me thus far would have to be Star Trek, I’m thinking Elysium will be my favorite, Despicable me 2 would probably be a close 3rd.

  9. I think we as a family enjoyed “Despicable Me 2” slightly more than “Monsters University”, so DM2 would be our pick for best of the new summer movies. Of old movies we’ve shown the kids this summer, though, (as we take the kids through a curated tour of the cinema of our childhood) top prize so far goes to “The Last Starfighter,” which they loved.

  10. Monsters U was really enjoyable. Although this weekend we will finally see Turbo so we will see!

  11. Turbo was pretty good. My son (4 years old) got a movie gift certificate for his Birthday on June 7th, and wanted to hold on to it until Turbo came out. Surprised he lasted as long as he did. We also enjoyed Despicable Me 2.

  12. It’s a toss up between the recently released Turbo and coming soon Planes. I think my son would go with Planes and I tend to agree!

  13. Despicable Me 2 was wonderful, the best by a long shot (I haven’t seen Turbo yet though)

  14. All I’ve seen is Turbo with my 4-year old, so I’ll have to go with that. It was pretty decent though.

  15. Pacific Rim was a big hit with my family this summer! Giant Mecha battling Giant Godzilla-sized Kaiju Monsters in order to save our planet and the human race from extinction…there was a great message in the film, and that is, if we would set aside our collective differences and be willing to work together, we really can make a positive difference on a global level.

  16. My son just gave me an astounding “Turbo” for his answer for me it had to be Epic.

  17. Star Trek Into Darkness was a great family movie experience; our 9 year old loved it!

  18. So far, our vote goes to Monsters University, but DM2 was a close second!

  19. While we enjoyed Epic, my nephew is very excited for Turbo. He can’t wait to see it.

  20. I liked Despicable Me 2 a lot! I loved how much they separated the distinct personalities of each character, especially Gru’s daughters.

  21. While Monsters University was fun I think we laughed more at the Croods so I think I’m going to the original rather than a sequel/prequel…

  22. We loved the croods so far but have not had the chance to see a lot of them yet my son would absolutely love this thanks for the giveaway

  23. Monsters University, hands down. Turbo kind of got lost in the shuffle… My son loved Monsters University (or Monsters Universary, as he insists on pronouncing it) and is really looking forward to Planes.

  24. So far my favorite movie is Monsters University, but I have yet to see Turbo with my family and my little sister so this may change once I see Turbo next week. I’ve been wanting to see this movie for a while now, but I want to see it with my sister and things have gotten in the way, but I’m sure I will watch it next week. I love DreamWorks films and they keep getting better and better. Last year, I fell in love with Rise of the Guardians. This year, I enjoyed the crazy adventures of The Croods. I can’t wait to see Turbo since they have a multicultural cast that I like and the story seems to be somehow original.

  25. My family’s split down the middle so far (haven’t yet seen Turbo). Half pick Monsters U, half pick Despicable Me 2.

    As the tie breaker, I’ll go with Despicable Me 2!

  26. Turbo was definitely our favorite this summer!! My son cant get enough of it! Everything he wants for his birthday is Turbo!! Wish they had more stuff out! It is very hard to find!!

  27. From Despicable Me 2, to Disney’s Planes, my boys are driving me insane!
    Mum, can we go to see Monsters Inc? Mum it’s out soon, can we go, what do you think? Well, I reply with a cheeky sigh, it’s my pick and I choose Turbo, let’s fly!
