We haven't seen one Potter film... I understand the last couple are a bit scary for little ones? Can anyone recommend an appropriate age to start watching from the beginning?

The first 4 are pretty tame.  The last couple were kinda scary in spots.  My youngest who is turning 6 in a month has watched them all.

Cool. Thanks.

Just watched Horrible Bosses. Pretty darn funny... and Jennifer Aniston?  HOLY HELL! Brad, what were you thinking?

I didn't know Hugo Weaving was playing Red Skull, might have to go see the Captain America.

the first two are age appropriate even to about age 5 or 6. Three and four have a few incidents of violence that will scare a sensitive child, but I'd say up to age 10 or 11 should be ok. I took my daycare kids to see number 3 years ago, and the oldest one at the time was 11, the youngest (my own boy) was 8 and he was okay with it, but he can stand horror type stuff better than me (he's 15 now). The last four movies (three books,  four movies, so Order of the Phoenix, Half Blood Prince and two parts to Deathly Hallows...) are PG 13 for a good reason. There's way more violence (although most of it is implied, the deaths mostly occur off screen) and frightening stuff  in them. There some very intense stuff, and storyline wise more than a young child can cope with. Unless the child has read the Potter books or is tough as nails, I would say age 10 or older for sure, for the last four movies.

Ah. Okay, maybe I'll wait a bit then. Thanks.

You're right

So I had to see Monte Carlo with my daughter today (parental duties). Didn't really pay attention but had a great hot dog and popcorn at none other than Encore cinema in Oakville. Fun times!
There's valid reasons for the limited interest. Get out of your basement if you dare. The real world will bend you over.

Watched a movie called Bronson a few nights ago (about the prisoner, not the film star). Starred Tom Hardy as Charles Bronson. Thought it was very well done. Hardy was great. He's putting together a very impressive looking resume. Last year he was in Inception and next year he's in TDKR. He's also starring in two films this year which are speculated to do some damage at the Oscars in Warrior and Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy.

Saw horrible bosses tonight, absolutely hilarious. Jennifer Anistion was great(and yes, what WAS brad thinking?) And I enoyed Jasilon Day as well

Just saw Dear Zachary. Don't know if a movie has ever hit me as hard as it did. What a stupid country we live in.
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.
