I do the Amazon LoveFilm thing and I need to add some films to my rental list but I don't know what to choose. I would like films that are no more than a 12 rating so that we can watch them with the DS (9) and DD (11). We've enjoyed all the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. We've also seen all the Harry Potter films. We are not big into Star Wars or anything of that ilk.

Also if anyone has any suggestions regarding a better way to rent films I would like to know. Our tv is quite old and we've tried getting Netflix on it but can't seem to figure it out (technophobes!).

Btw I could stand to watch any of those!

wickedwaterwitch Sat 05-Mar-16 12:54:17

And I'd say all of those would probably interest an 11yo and a 9 yo and you could watch them too and be entertained. I think the quality of family films is fantastic ATM

My 2 love Pixels - it really is a great film (with lots of retro stuff for adults) smile

dolphin tale, really good, much better than i expected it to be. (sounds like its animated, its not, its the true story of a dolphin in need of a prosthetic tail)

Oh wow wicked I've just watched the trailer for The Sorcerer's Apprentice' it looks fab! That one is definitely going on my list.
