An American Tale Franchise
Cry as Fievel Mousekewitz gets separated from his family in New York, then bask in the magical western romp that follows, and settle in for the lesser known An American Tale: The Mystery of the Night Monster as the perfect movie dessert.
This is the movie that convinced you bobsledding was the coolest of all the sports. And yes, the true story is still super inspiring.
OK, so Gremlins gave you a few nightmares when you were a kid, but you know you totally still want to adopt Gizmo.
Not only does this movie feature one of Hollywood's most adorable couples, Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar, it's also good, old-fashioned silly fun that will make you feel like it's 2002 again.
Disney's The BFG
This recent adaptation of the beloved Roald Dahl classic is a must-see for anyone who grew up reading The BFG over and over again.
Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return
Mystery Science Theater 3000 is back, and this time, Felicia Day and Patton Oswalt are in charge of torturing an unsuspecting crew with the worst movies known to man.
Disney's Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey
If you need a good cry, you can now rewatch that Shadow scene over and over again until you can't deal with the sheer amount of feelings it evokes.
Bill Nye Saves The World
The Science Guy is back just when the world needs him the most. This time around, Nye is going to tackle everything from global warming to sex, and he's doing it with guest stars like Rachel Bloom, Donald Faison, and Tim Gunn. It's going to be awesome, guys.
The Mr. Peabody And Sherman Show Season 4
If you haven't checked out the modern update of The Mr. Peabody and Sherman show, then you need to get on that immediately. It's just as good as the classic, and it's a kid's show you can totally enjoy with your own kid or favorite niece or nephew.
Netflix is inviting you to get your nostalgia on this April, and '90s kids are going to love it.
