Hello, new to the forum but a big movie fan. I have a 9 year old step son who I have a regular movie night with every Friday night. We have been doing this for more than a year and a half. We have a regular schedule of watching a cartoon, then some trailers for upcoming movies we might watch, then our feature. I began with showing him some more kiddie stuff and then branched into movies I liked when I was younger(I'm 33). He is very open to all kinds of films-sci-fi(love Star Wars of course), adventure, even old black and whites. Below is a list of most of the movies I have shown him over the past year and a half. Starting to run out of ideas, so was hoping to get some suggestions if possible? 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s to the present all fair game. He has enjoyed all these films so maybe these will help determine some others people on this board might think he'd like. thanks for any suggestions! Trying to keep my Netflix queue stocked... Bedknobs and Broomsticks Midnight Madness Big Trouble In Little China Never a Dull Moment Kenny and Co. Star Wars 1-6(he'd seen these already and liked them) Clash of the Titans War of the Gargantuas Them Poseidon Adventure Towering Inferno Rollercoaster the Swarm Pee Wees Big Adventure The Car Kingdom of the Spiders Planet of the Apes 1-5 Omega Man Star Trek 2-4 Indiana Jones 1-3 Blue Thunder Tron Goonies Monster Squad Cloak and Dagger Red Dawn My Bodyguard Ghostbusters Gremlins 1-2 Critters 1-2 Goldfinger From Russia With Love Thunderball Monty Python and the Holy Grail UHF Airplane! MSt3k-Various episodes Star Trek Original series-Various episodes Twilight Zone- a few episodes cartoons: Thundaar the Barbarian Hong Kong Phooey Dynomutt Home Movies Garfield and Friends G.I. Joe On the dockett to watch soon: Flash Gordon Young Frankenstein Fiend Without a Face Jason and the Argonauts Day The Earth Stood Still Moonraker The Three Amigos The Sea Gypsies
DVD wish list: One Way Passage(1932), History Is Made at Night(1937), Phantom Lady(1944), Ride the Pink Horse(1947), Who's Minding the Mint?(1967), A New Leaf(1971), The Outfit(1973), The Gravy Train(1974), Buster & Billie(1974), Baby Blue Marine(1976), Deadly Eyes(1982), What Happened Was(1994)

Thank you good call on these! I forgot that I showed him Time Bandits and he liked it, so Munchausen is a good logical next step. And he'd love Red October too! Putting them in the queue now!

Wow, great lists here with TONS of good stuff! Many of my personal favorites(Duel, The Birds, The Last Voyage, Breaking Away, Quatermass and the Pit...) You guys were right on the mark with a lot of these suggestions as I was considering many of them already(Buckaroo Banzai, Robinson Crusoe on Mars, Forbidden Planet, Great Train Robbery, Uncle Buck, The Wolf Man, Princess Bride, Galaxy Quest, Abbot and Costello meet Frankenstein) So many others I hadn't thought of! Fantastic!

Two not quite so obvious suggestions: HOPE AND GLORY MY LEFT FOOT. These aren't necessarily though of as kids' films, but my kids loved them. When you watch HOPE AND GLORY with a child you really get to experience it through a child's eyes and you realize what a brilliant and unique film it is.

That is awesome! Has he seen the Pirates of the Caribbean movies? My 3 year old daughter loves "Jack the Sparrow" and we watch these a lot along with Lady and the Tramp.

How about:

The Natural
Fletch
Hoosiers
Second Hand Lions

Yeah he dug the Pirates movies also. Haven't shown him these others though. Am curious if he would like Fletch or not. I think he would. I love it!

In my haste, I forgot to list one obvious title:

MIGHTY JOE YOUNG (1949) --any nine-year-old would love this, just for the tug-o-war scene between Joe and the wrestlers!

Also:

THE VALLEY OF GWANGI (1969) --cowboys vs. dinosaurs!

And if he likes "caper" movies, try TOPKAPI (1964), THE ITALIAN JOB (1969) and DANGER: DIABOLIK (1968).

If, from his exposure to FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE, GOLDFINGER and THUNDERBALL, he's becoming a budding James Bond fan, introduce him to James Coburn in OUR MAN FLINT (1966) and IN LIKE FLINT (1967). He may also like DEADLIER THAN THE MALE (1967), and Michael Caine in THE IPCRESS FILE (1965) and BILLION DOLLAR BRAIN (1967) (FUNERAL IN BERLIN (1966) is good too, but might be a bit dull for a younger viewer)

TV shows:

JONNY QUEST
THE WILD WILD WEST
THE AVENGERS (the shot-on-film Diana Rigg and Linda Thorson seasons)
JIM HENSON'S THE STORYTELLER
KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER
LAND OF THE GIANTS
LAND OF THE LOST
MR. BEAN
THE OUTER LIMITS (1960s version)
POLICE SQUAD!
LEAVE IT TO BEAVER
DRAGNET

Don't forget classic-era cartoons and comedy shorts:

* LOONEY TUNES / MERRY MELODIES
* Fleischer Studios' POPEYE cartoons
* Fleischer Studios' SUPERMAN cartoons (featured on the recent SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE and SUPERMAN II discs, as well as in solo collections)
* Most of the cartoons in the WOODY WOODPECKER & FRIENDS VOL. 1 & 2 collections
* THREE STOOGES shorts (especially the recent Sony chronological collection of the 1934-36 shorts, the next set, 1937-39, is coming out at the end of May)
* OUR GANG / LITTLE RASCALS

My nephews are 6 and 8 and they love watching Toby Tyler, Old Yeller, Savage Sam and ET. As for cartoons, they love Pluto, Tom & Jerry, Loony Tunes and Popeye (The Fleischer ones, especially with Swee' Pea).
