Family Friendly Movies:

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle  – This is rated PG-13 mostly for language and some suggestive content, but I would say this is great for ages 10+.

Video Games the Movie – Documentary about Nintendo and Sega games and how they were made, marketed, and consumed.

The Maltese Falcon – If you read the book, you’ll probably want to watch the film to compare.

Warcraft – Even if you’ve never played, this is a fun fantasy film that takes place in the World of Warcraft universe. I recommend this for ages 10+

Angry Birds the Movie – My kids all loved this movie when it came out. Silly movie about the game of the same name.

Ready Player One – Read the book and compare with the movie! This also has a PG – 13 rating for violence, language, and suggestive content – this one is probably best for ages 12+
