I am desperately seeking movie recommendations (not Desperately Seeking Susan – anyone remember that classic Madonna film??). My nearly seven year old could use a new movie to watch for our Movie Nights. I am desperately sick of Star Wars which we have been rotating the six movies every Friday since summer. I don’t even watch anymore. I either goof around on the computer or read a book. I simply can not take anymore Star Wars. Boo however loves them.
I would love to hear about other movies you can recommend for his age. I tried letting him watch the first Harry Potter but I guess it was too much talking and not enough action. If it’d had a lightsaber he probably would have liked it more.
The requirements are as follows:
Nothing realistic – Indian Jones is real. It has real people and blood and guns. We don’t do that in our house at the tender age of six. When he’s older he’ll love them the way I did as a kid.
Nothing animated – he’s just doesn’t seem to care for them anymore.
Nothing scary – he’s fairly sensitive, this one’s kinda obvious.
So let me hear what your kids are watching. Not being able to easily get near a good selection of videos (with english titles anyway) I am at a loss. We searched for Home Alone over the weekend but couldn’t find it at the store. I think he’d like that type of movie though.
