Bitter that I did not read this when it originally came out in 2007 when my kids were 6 9 It would have been such a great resource ugh so irritated This is a perfect gift to give new parents Really anyone with kids under the age of 10 needs to go get this book Seriously go order this book right nowThe book is slightly dated in the sense that the method of watching movies has changed so dramatically in the last dozen years He writes of finding movies on VHS or in your local video store Yep not such viable options for many people any Of course it s easy enough to google in order to find out where a movie is streaming and if it isn t streaming anywhere then where it s available for purchase You don t need this book for thatThe main benefit of this book is to provide a guideline for what old movies to show your kids at what general age and in what order It s so helpful to have a movie critic film major general movie fanatic tell you how to go about introducing your kids to the golden era of Hollywood I mean I love old movies and have seen a bunch but I ve never consciously sat down and thought about the best way to first view them For me it just sort of happened organically These were movies my parents had enjoyed growing up so we d watch them if they showed up on tv and when video stores opened we d rent them Kind of like how my kids have seen a lot of 70 s 80 s movies tv from my childhood You want to introduce your kids to the toys games media you enjoyed as a kidAt this point the golden era of Hollywood is a looooong time ago to kids today I ll be watching an old movie from say 1933 and marvel that it was filmed 85 years ago In 1933 85 years ago was 1848 85 years is a long time My kids think something from 2000 is ancient At this point in time convincing a kid to watch The Thin Man or High Noon or Duck Soup takes some doing It s like convincing them that books written than 50 years ago can be good But that s a whole other topicMy kids are not kids any at 20 almost 17 As Ty Burr puts it in his introduction if you are planning to introduce old movies to a teen well that ship has already sailed The horse has left the barn Luckily I did make my kids watch old movies with me over the years Not to the extent this author did with his kids I want to kidnap his oldest daughter and watch movies with her he s so lucky to have a kid to share his passion with him Sadly neither of my kids developed an obsession or even a deep love for old movies I tried I really tried I think I would have been successful if I d had this book to guide meI did feel somewhat gratified that my kids had seen a fair amount of the movies he lists Not a ton but definitely than most of their peers have I think They have even liked some of them Yay Just last year my daughter I sat down watched a Thin Man movie marathon on tv She was surprised at how much she enjoyed them She shouldn t have been because they are great movies still super funny Myrna Loy William Powell make a perfect married couple Goalswell not all the boozing but otherwise yeah a great relationship to aim forBurr points out that kids are individuals and just because his kids liked a movie or you liked it as a kid doesn t mean your kid will like it too Hence the need to introduce them to a wide variety of classics and then follow their interests and delve further in what they like whether it be comedy or westerns or whatever Just be prepared to feel sad when your kids don t gush over a movie you adore Our son is named after Cary Grant s character in The Philadelphia Story one of my all time favorites I LOVE IT So naturally we showed him the movie when he got older Waaah he thought it was ok I guess UGH However over the years he has really enjoyed 12 Angry Men Rear Window Some Like it Hot Charadewell ok he prefers his old movies to be from the 60s 90 s That list would be a lot longer My daughter has liked old movies over the years maybe because I tended to show girly movies I don t know She still prefers YouTube and Netflix to sitting down to view a 2 hour black white movieMaybe you will be lucky and create a movie watching partner in crime out of your young child the way Ty Burr did with his oldest daughter Good luck
