- Inappropriate film for 11 year old…
The wife is taking my 9 year old to see Elf at the cinema tonight, so the big lad and I have a boys night in planned.
He’s already seen Terminator (surprisingly tame nowadays) and Deadpool (which is not), along with the F&F movies and Hobbs and Shaw.
I’m thinking T2, Rambo (First Blood), Predator, Commando, Lethal Weapon or Robocop from the Archive or possibly the Expendables…Posted 1 month ago
I would go along and watch Elf – it is better than all the other films you have mentioned.
As much as I enjoyed it the first 17 times, we decided we didn’t need to see that again for the 18th time surrounded by overly Christmassy people in Christmas jumpers on the 4th of December. Yes, I’m grumpy.Posted 1 month agokerleyMember

Fair enough. I have probably only seen it 4 or 5 times so not quite at saturation point yet.Posted 1 month agoFuzzyWuzzySubscriber
I watched the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre when I was 10 or 11, grandparents are great :p Not sure I’d recommend it though…
If you’re looking at action movies with a bit of horror thrown in I guess Predator or Aliens would be decent options, both have aged OK although both also a bit cheesy in several places. Pacific Rim maybe if he’s into giant robots.
What about all the Marvel films or the better DC ones (e.g. The Dark Knight)?Posted 1 month agoscuttlerMember
Being all sensible for a minute, a quick whizz at Common Sense Media is a good start point for figuring out whether you’ll let your kids watch a particular film. Slightly less blunt than the BBFC classification.
Works for TV and games too.
For bit of context the precis for original Robocop is
“Parents need to know that this movie is more of a bloodbath than you probably remember. Numerous characters are killed onscreen, many weapons are used, and there are some truly gruesome scenes, like when a policeman’s hand and arm are shot off. Some characters snort cocaine, one off a woman’s breasts; others commit crimes such as rape (attempted, taunting a woman with a knife before help arrives) and armed robbery. A corporation that controls the local police force is portrayed as corrupt.”Posted 1 month ago
