The new Jumanji films are actually pretty good. Plenty of humour aimed at adults as well as kids

We really enjoyed spies in disguise

We watched the babysitters guide to monster hunting this morning and now watching Nanny McPhee

The newer goosebumps films are ok as well

Bridge to Terrabithia is a great film - it's a bit older now, can't remember the release date but it's been a firm favourite for years.


It has a bit of a sad ending... not ideal if you/the children are sensitive.

“Goodnight Mr Tom” is a heart warming (if harrowing in parts) children’s film, with John Thaw as the grumpy widower who adopts an abused child evacuee in WW2.
Spoiler alert- there is a happy ending!
My DC also enjoyed “The Box of Delights”, based on the John Masefield children’s book. The special effects are a bit dated now, but it’s v imaginative and great fun.
