10 Great Animated Films That Can Be Enjoyed More By Adults Than Children Animated films are often thought of as kid’s films, but in many cases, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

This list is for the animated films made for grown-ups. These films go places that many animated films wouldn’t dare go, and as many films on this list prove, animated movies can be equally emotional, equally exciting and equally amazing as live action cinema. 10.

Las películas favoritas de Stanley Kubrick Desde 2012 Nick Wrigley, fundador de la organización los Maestros del Cine, ha trabajado en una lista, compilada de diferentes fuentes, de las películas favoritas de Stanley Kubrick.

Así lo entendió Wrigley, quien se dio a la tarea de hacer una búsqueda exhaustiva de los filmes predilectos de Kubrick, que nombró la Lista Maestra, con el fin de incluir la diversidad de películas que agradaban a uno de los grandes maestros del cine.
