I can't believe that nobody has mentioned Back to the Future yet. For shame.

Since you already have a decent list I can keep it short,

Serenity which has the bonus of the TV box set to back it up if you like it - only the one S-word as far as I can remember, 99% of the rest of the swears are Joss Whedon's invented language

and Man of Steel for modern Superman unless you already took him to see that back in the day.

However don't forget some non-English classics, try Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (12 cert) and Akira (or Spirited Away for next to no blood) in the anime stakes.

[EDIT] Although if he made it through John Carter, Disney are the safe bet so put Tomorrowland on the list as well, that's definitely a family fun type picture that's also potentially a bit long like John Carter but delivers in the end.

If the young-uns are going to be educated, let’s educate them proper.

The Great Dictator – Charlie Chaplin
The Gold Rush – Charlie Chaplin
Carrie (1976)
Das Boot
The Godfather 1&2
Pulp Fiction
Heat (Pacino/De Niro)
Tombstone (Val Kilmer steels the show)
Fate whispers to the warrior "You cannot withstand the storm"

The warrior whispers back "I am the storm"

Good lord! I like most of them apart from Heat, I never got that and I don't think I've ever watched Tombstone.

Tombstone is worth watching for Kilmer's performance alone.

It is a great film, as is Heat, but Pulp Fiction is probably going to be traumatic for a 10 year old!

There are several scenes in Pulp Fiction I wouldn't feel comfortable watching with my dad now, let alone when I was 10 :lol:

The Matrix done. I thought it best to explain some of the plot before the film as it's quite hard to follow 'real world' vs 'matrix world' etc.
Think he got it :) he mentioned there was a lot of swearing when Neo woke up late for work and said shit 4 or 5 times :)

Men in Black tonight.

Tremors . Yeah the original only though.
