Classic Flicks


We're slowly introducing Jack to some classic 80s movies and so far, he has loved every one.  He caught The Karate Kid last week and got up early every morning to catch a little off the dvr before the day started.  Another big hit (although I could do without the Wax On/Paint the Fence jokes the kids now tell all the time).

What are some favorites you think we should share with the almost 10-year-old?  I think Planes, Trains and Automobiles is next for us, but we need to build a "to watch" list.

Big is a good one, and he probably won't get the stuff he shouldn't. Stand By Me (heavy language, but otherwise, great film) Vacation (language, nudity, hell I saw it well before I was 10) Dark Crystal? Princess Bride, Cloak & Dagger with Henry Thomas, Ladyhawke, Iron Man, Tobey Spider-man 1 & 2, X-Men 1 & 2, yes, I'm snobbing up my hero flicks. Spidey 3 and Amazing Spidey were not good. Neither was X-men 3.
