Kids sure do have wild imaginations. And Fandango Movieclips takes full advantage of their outrageous lateral logic thinking in yet another edition of Reel Kids, which take a group of young, precocious children and let them intellectually loose. As we begin the countdown to this weekend’s Oscars, some “Reel Kids” take their sweet, indecisive time to spell out what they think each Best Picture nominee is really all about.

As the children fumble over their words and wildly change their pitches to describe what each movie is about, the host, Dan, riffs with the vicarious children to flush out their hilariously cute ideas. One explains that “The Big Short” is really nothing more than a rip-off of the Schwarzenegger-DeVito buddy flick, “Twins.” Another suggests that “Mad Max: Fury Road” is a simple and touching tale of a young man’s harrowing journey to take a quiet and restorative nap. “The Revenant?” Obviously a fun-loving story about Revenant the Elephant.
