This is for sure :)

I sort of fell out of love with Ford but the line "Gold, why do they want GOLD? Do they want to SHOP???
That was really good...

Super 8, liked it a lot. Great acting by young people. Had to d some suspension of reality but still good entertainment.

Any suggestions for movies about 8 to 10 years old that we might have seen but would not mind rewatching for the lull TV time between the holidays? We like action, horror, sci fi, suspense. No rom coms, no historical drama could do without tear jerkers too.

Hm. Hit '2003 films wikipedia' into google, then go backwards (or forwards) and you'll see lists of top moneymakers, awards films, etc.

If you like Pixar, Toy Story 1, 2 or 3, Shrek (first), Bolt are all good. I loved Wall E very much. The Incredibles is very good, but also animated. Not sure your feelings re: animated films.

The Harry Potter movies are good. Also the Chronicles of Narnia films, but the first is the best.

The Goonies is really great. I also liked The Addams Family. Labyrinth is really good but might be a bit intense for some kids. Stand By Me is good. I am sure that my younger kids were watching it with the older ones by the time they were 8 or 10, but it might be too old for them. ET is also kid appropriate. The Black Stallion is really good. My adult kids still love Princess Bride and also Willow (which is more intense).

Dax, I found a bunch to rent. That was a great idea. The recent releases mostly suck, and we have already seen the couple of good ones. I guess I am really limited in my tastes as well as I said, no rom com, very little comedy period, no tearjerkers, no animation, and no fantasy. I can stand some hsitorical stuff but really not much prior to WW1. (HATED Braveheart)...

Once in awhile I'll watch one of the above, Bridesmaids (rom com? or what?) was pretty good, but I thought the Terrible(?) Bosses movie sucked and a lot of people thought it was a riot. No animation, ever.....

Looking back at the shows, man that made me feel old. I could not believe how many years ago some of the films were made that I felt like I had just seen...

>> Terrible(?) Bosses

Horrible (the title, not a judgment - I haven't seen it yet).

Wish your anti-animation bias weren't so strong - nobody has made more excellent movies in the last sixteen years than Pixar.
