DS has a friend over, they want to watch a film but I don't know what to show them.
They have seen and like things like star wars, hobbit etc.
I'm sure there are some old classics they would love but I can't think of any...
Suggestions please

Not Ghostbusters!!! DS saw it last year age 7 and was terrified to sleep for weeks!

I wouldn't do Jurassic park either! Terrifying

Back to the Future

Back to the Future is DS (6) favourite film. He has even asked about having a Back to the Future party

We went for ET. They enjoyed it and were moved.
Will work through some of the others on this thread. Thanks everyone!

Ghostbusters contains sexual content and bad language that you may not remember with the rosy glow of nostalgia so do be aware.

Zathura- 2 brothers find an old game as as they play it things start to happen , the whole house ends up floating in space. Very fast paced, good ending.
Treasure planet ( cartoon film, very well done)
