Krull was awesome! Incredibly cheesy but awesome, just like all the best ‘80s fantasy movies (remember Beastmaster?).

Dave, how young is your younger again? DC might be a bit intense for him anyway (although otoh if he can handle the wolf thing from NES he ought to be ok - that thing freaked me right out as a kid).
Feel free to call me Dave!

he's just turned 6. I'm never sure how to gauge movies for him in terms of "scary". I mean, he was terrified of the Other Mother in Coraline*, but has also watched Blade, Blade 2, and played through Biohazard 5 and 6, so...I dunno? We tried ep 1 of DC this evening, and it seemed to hold his attention, but he got a bit scared later on. Not sure if that's because he was getting too tired, though, as it was getting late. I'll see how he does with it tomorrow morning in the cold light of day.

*to be fair, she was damn creepy.

Well, there isn’t really anything *more* traumatic than what happens in the first episode (equally, sure, but not more).

I remember, years back, I'm talking with a buddy.
Cliff- "So, what did you do last weekend?"
Me- "Nothing. "Beastmaster" was on, so I watched that."
Cliff- "Man, I hate that movie every time I watch it."
Me- "How many times you watch it, Cliff?"
Cliff-"Oh, 5 or 6."

I've decided to save Stranger Things a bit, so I've started watching Dark, a German science-fictiony psychological thriller-y kind of thing, set in a small town in Germany where it's always cloudy and rains about 2/3 of the time but nobody owns an umbrella so they're always just walking around in the rainy woods at night drenched to the bone. I'm enjoying it, but if you're the kind of person (like me) who has trouble remembering names you'll want to take notes because family relationships are *really* important, and the merest glance at wikipedia will spoil a lot of stuff. Still, good, but dark and rainy.
