The New York Times critic loved Bumblebee, while saying how it was different than the other Transformer movies by having silly things like a plot and characters that you actually cared about. Everybody's been raving about Spider-Man. Roma is on a lot of people's Oscar Best Film pick. (I've not seen any yet.)

Agreed on Spider Man. I loved it, but it's not for Autumn yet.

I assume that you've already been through the Miyazaki classics? Toto, Kiki, etc? What about Song of the Sea? Autumn is also super in to Mune, Guardian of the Moon. It seems to be a moderately standard adventure plot, but fascinating world building. I haven't watched it all the way through, so I can't comment on all aspects of it, but it hasn't been traumatic to her at least. Sing is kinda vapid, but has some well performed pop music across a few different sub-genres and is fun and bouncy and uplifting. Has she seen the original Wreck-It Ralph? (Not the 2018 sequel, which was meh.)

A little further out there, some of the classics of our childhood/adolescence: The Muppet Movie, Labyrinth, The Neverending Story, The Dark Crystal.

It has its teachable moments. I wish they had done more with the mom engineer character. I hope the bronchitis goes away with all speed!

Well, damn, I somehow read this as you hadn't seen it. Valkyrie need coffee... badly.

Also, I realize you don't subscribe to my LJ (smart girl, you) but http://aiweirdness.com/post/175608335057/nails-by-ai is a thing of general amusingness. Happy plus-one-month-plus-one-day birthday.
