Family films don’t have to be good. They just have to exist, and to be showing within driving distance, and parents will take their kids.

On this episode of Film Club, A.A. Dowd and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky catch up with two worthwhile family films released at the tail end of this summer season: Kubo And The Two Strings, the new wonder from stop-motion house Laika; and Pete’s Dragon, an uncommonly soulful remake of a very bad Disney “classic.”
