I think the biggest concern for me in sharing films with my daughters is language. They are remarkably clean in their speech and I am very proud of that, I don't want to debase their vocabularies any more than I can help. We watched TREMORS a few weeks back and I had forgotten that Kevin Bacon dropped an F-bomb when they killed the first big worm.
Well they learn it from school anyway it makes very little difference where they learn it. However it is best if they are exposed to it by you rather than their peers.
Any way my dads version of looking after the little kid. Which if I ever have kids will also be used by me.
Alien and Aliens. He fast forwarded through all the chestburster scenes so I got a speed up version of that horror. Great films to show a 5 year old. You will not have any idea of how many years I had nightmares of head huggers and chest bursters.
Critters was another I remember. Rather cute on the horror scale.
Now my own 6 would be.
Dawn of the dead.
Day of the dead.
Both orginal versions of course.
silence of the lambs. (I would like to see how my kids react to that film)
