I remember being dropped off at a movie with a friend when I was 10 (that dates me), and instead of seeing whatever we were supposed to see, we snuck into the other theater to see Glenda Jackson in A Touch Of Class
I saw all the Irwin Allen disaster films by the time I was 12-13. They were frightening but not gory.
One time, The Blue Lagoon
happened to come on TV but my mother hustled over to the set before any of the good parts
. How tame it seems now. But "kids" movies like Bambi
or even The Wizard of Oz
I had one babysitter that I loved because she would let me come back downstairs and watch Flip Wilson
. He was considered very risque' for his time.
My kids are 13 and 15 now, but back in their littler days I was more strict:
South Park (movie, and the show)
The Simpsons movie (I hated Bart with the heat of 10,000 suns)
Any gruesome horror film on par with Friday the 13th
(much later, I let them watch the original Halloween
because it was considered a landmark film)
Most of Disney, partly for the dark themes and because of my own irritation of the woman rescued by a man storylines.
Alfred Hitchcock was banned until they got older and I could prepare them for The Birds
. I was trying to contrast those films with the Friday the 13th
Any Madea movie, until they got older (only within the last year)
Original Star Wars
Night at the Museum
Gone With The Wind (in part; DD loved the swirling skirts at the dance and didn't care about the rest of it
Original Godzilla movies, or any of the 1970's Japanese monster movies.
Bend it like Beckham
The Day After Tomorrow (when older)
