Been renting lots of oldies for my kids - they get 2hrs of crappy TV shows, then have to watch 1 old movie of my choice before they get TV again... so far I've been pretty easy renting stuff like Back to the Future, Terminator,.. stuff they will almost for sure like.... This weekedn we did Burt and The Longest Yard... after about 10 minutes I was worried they would fall asleep.. totally different pacing than they are used to... but they loved it, and I was happy at how well it help up in my mind. My boy keeps walking around the house saying MEAN MACHINE!

Might have to go on a prison bender: Cool Hand Luke and Pappion come to mind... any others?



Thanks,
Harry

I think you got it right with Cool Hand Luke, everybody should be forced to watch that movie! It teaches you the value of eating hard boiled eggs.

I'd say Midnight Express is an amazing older prison movie, but I'm not sure that's the best movie for children... You could always go with a more slightly modern classic in Shawshank.

I think North by North West would be a great film to watch. That of course is 26 years older then Back to the Future and may be to old, but I love that film.
