- Inappropriate film for 11 year old…
Who invited the Fun Police?
I’ve got my hat on too. I watched RoboCop at 13 and it scared the bejesus out of me when he got shot up. 11? Eeesh.
T2 though. I was about a week before my 15th birthday and got pulled up by the cinema guy for being too young. I played the “is it cos iz small?” card and off he toddled looking sheepish.Posted 1 month ago
I’d buy that for a dollar.
I got this problem, I don’t like cops, and cops don’t like me.
I’m gonna have to re watch robocop now!
Very good film when you think about it. Police owned by private companies, or segments sold off to contractors.. It does have a very good story despite it being an action film.Posted 1 month agotwistedpencilSubscriber
I think I was 11 when I saw Robocop. I then remember buying it HMV in Nottingham when I was about 13, staff were a bit more laid back then 🙂 Had a massive poster of Robocop in my room when I was about 12. My parents were obviously not as strict as I remember! Loved going up to the video shop and picking an inappropriate film to watch with my mates.
T2 good choice.
Next one – Tremors or Big Trouble in Little ChinaPosted 1 month agosquirrelkingMember
Haha the splattering was awesome. Great film, Starship Troopers works on the same level.
Man Bites Dog.
On the other hand has zero redeeming qualities to it. Someone wanted to watch it for their birthday as is was “funny as ****”. Awkward wasn’t the right word. I suppose if you find rape funny then I guess it would work. For those who haven’t seen it think What We Do In The Shadows but not funny. That’s not to say its a bad film but not something I’d recommend.Posted 1 month agojimdubleyouSubscriber
28 days later.
It’s got zombies, bit of potential child rape and bad folk getting their cummupance.
Plus, it’s beautifully shot…
What’s not to like?
We went with T2

First Blood, great film. Should’ve ended it the same way as the book though.
I’ve not read the book, but First Blood is one of the greatest films no-one has ever seen. It is to Rambo as The Terminator is to Judgement Day.
It’s a bit like Alien to Aliens, only with the exception that Aliens is better.Posted 1 month agoBillOddieSubscriber
In fact, Christ man, what’s wrong with you. Ghostbusters, Gremlins, Back to the Future, there’s a goldmine here.
We’ve watched and enjoyed all of those.
That, and when the guy gets splatted by the car after getting covered in acid.
This is sort of the point of the thread I had forgotten how rough Robocop was.Posted 1 month agokayla1Member
I think I was 13 or 14 when I first saw Robocop on a bad pirate copy, complete with Chinese subtitles and terrible dubbing over the sweary bits, the not-even-trying-to-mimic-the-voice-being-overdubbed sort of terrible- “die, you blaggard” has stuck in my memory as a particularly good one 😆
Oooh, for next time, what about a video nasty? The Stuff or Re-Animator are ace/terrible.Posted 1 month agotwistedpencilSubscriber
Yep that scene affected me as well. Most of the others were cartoon violence, but Murphy being shot was tough. Suspect I’d still flinch at that on a rewatch.
The joy of inappropriate films when your young is obviously the thrill of something illicit. Don’t worry I still saw Teenwolf, Back to the Future, Star Wars, Indy and all the others and loved them too, in fact more so as I keep returning to them. Escapism when you’re young is the strange adult world, now I’m old I enjoy kids movies more 🙂 probably due to Stockholm syndrome after having three kids…Posted 1 month agoscuttlerMember
Common Sense Media again – spoiler alert!! 😉
Parents say 13+ Kids say 13+
Parents need to know that Predator is a macho sci-fi action adventure with lots of bloody violence — not to mention artillery and gun fetishism (although, in the end, it’s the low-tech death traps that prove most effective…). The villain is a laser-wielding alien that cuts down many of the heavily armed heroes, leaving hideously skinned corpses in its wake. Lots of strong language; some drinking, smoking, and drug references. The lone female character doesn’t get much to do compared to star Arnold Schwarzenegger and his fellow male soldiers.
Good thing with a lot of these 80’s films is there’s nack-all commercialism other than a pack of Marlboro fags.Posted 1 month agorichmtbSubscriber
The thing you should bear in mind, when you watched Robocop at 11 it was on a shonky VHS where half the time you had to guess what was going on. It might be a bit more graphic in HD.
Predator is great though.Posted 1 month ago
And as no one has said them:
The Bourne / Identity / Ultimatum / Supremacy
The Hunt For Red October
