MzTeachuh's List of 25 Movies to Watch With Your Teens

Here are twenty-five of my favorite films. Although most of these are very famous, they might not be to a fourteen year old.  Consider sharing films that meant something to you, sharing personal insights to your life experience. Some are fine for pre-teens, use your own discretion and consider ratings. Make watching your favorite movies a family occasion, to share your feelings and experiences at the time. Kids are amazed to imagine their grownups as kids. This can be a closeness-builder. Don't forget good snacks.

And don't neglect all those great Christmas/Holiday films--you have your choice of so many 'Christmas Carols', my favorite it Goerge C. Scott's, and 'Elf',  even National Lampoon, You can always binge on the Halmark Channel.

Hurrah for Hulu and Netflix! But I say, even if you use ole skool tek like VHS (as long as it works, why not?) or DVDs, just have a blast from the past.

Not in order of importance or preference. Just as I thought of them. I have more, of course, like 'Braveheart,' or 'Spartacus' but I must limit myself.
