Kids movie suggestions for family movie night

46 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

We are doing the family movie night.  Pizza, popcorn, kids movie, and then some DirecTV pron for the wife and I after we put the kids to bed (bow chica bow bow).  I'm out of ideas for the kids movie. We've done the Disney Pixar stuff to death and I'm pretty tired of the animated stuff.  I'm thinking old school like an E.T. or Never Ending Story or The Sandlot.  Any suggestions?  The boys are 3 and 8 so it's hard to find something both will be into.

Avengers. 3 too young for that?

Old school... Star Wars. Can never go wrong with that.

Avengers might be a little too intense for the 3 year old.  I have the Star Wars box set so we've seen them a hundred times.

Well damn, we just watched the avengers with our 3 year old and our almost 2 year old yesterday.

 

an edited version of the Goonies goes over well with our kids

The National Lampoon Vacation series aren't too bad... the original Vacation with Chevy Chase and Christie Brinkley wouldn't be bad for kids, I don't think.

 

Course, I don't have kids, so my take on what's suitable is questionable at best.

Was it good? I've never seen it, just thought it would be too intense.

Goonies is a good idea.

Goonies can get a little intense for the really young kids IMHO

 

Love Iron Giant.

 

Don't forget Wizard Of Oz, great for all ages all the time

 

Old Sinbad movies

 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles great for boys

One of, if not the, best movies in the past decade imo. Not all that intense and not gory either...

Avengers is excellent, the worst word said is hell.  The fighting is PG and the only real blood is one stabbing that is done tastefully.

 

Goonies is loaded with curse words, I forgot that since I mostly saw it on cable over the years.  The most intense parts are skeletons and a couple dead bodies, which don't scare my kids.

Gremlins has a little section about there being no Santa Claus.  First time we let my daughter watch it, I remembered it before it came and sent her out of the room for that part.
