Kill the Thing! Cut his throat! Spill his blood! ... Spill and kill and cut the MONSTER! Now! Now! Now! --"Lord of the Flies,"Hollywood-style The little ones are American, not British, this time. They worry less about upholding some prep school code than missing out on "Alf" and breakfast tacos. But the awful savagery of the story is coming to life again, with most of its frightening implications about evil that lurks in the hearts of children.

"Fly Me to the Moon," a 3-D-animated tale of insects who want to be the first flies on the moon, seeks to instill in kids a sense of wonder at space exploration. Whether it succeeds is really in the eye of the beholder. Three young flies in 1969 hitch a ride on Apollo 11; luckily their garbage heap is near Cape Canaveral. There are sinister Russian flies and the cutest maggots in film history. Until a climactic fight scene, the film's as mild as baby shampoo.
