I'm thinking of getting a few 70s/80s blockbuster movies on dvd for my lad for Christmas. I've mentioned Jaws to him a few times and he wants to see that and I thought maybe Close Encounters would be a good choice. Any other suggestions?
He's 11, 12 in March so nothing too sweary or saucy. Just things you reckon is worth watching from back then. He saw Ferris Bueller and liked that plus a couple of those Burt Reynolds and Clint Eastwood driving capers. He asked if he can watch American Werewolf but he's far too young for that.
Convoy as Zico said.
Close Encounters (watched this recently)
Any Which way...
Witness, my kids watched this
Trading Places (bit saucy with Jamie Lee Curtis fantastic physique).
My lad went to watch Creed 2 yesterday and I asked him to describe the story to me. In his brief teenage description "it's about this guy, who's dad got killed by the other guys dad in a fight" etc...... I said was his name Ivan Drago? He was surprised by me knowing. Just sounds like a re hash of Rocky V with their kids.
We watched Stand by Me with the kids. I'd wait till he's older. Every other word is swearing, I forgot about that and didn’t enjoy it as a result of being on edge
