    Ok I am a very bored 16 year old in the middle of my post GCSE summer holidays!

    Most of the days I have entertained myself by browsing around the internet and watching stuff on my laptop.

    I am sort of out of ideas of what films to rent!

    I normally use imdb to browse around actors that have appeared in films I liked and see what else they are in!

    Im sort of into teen comedies or scary films or simply films involving teens (like me)!

    Here is a list of some films I have seen recently and if you can think of any good ones that I should add to my list please give me a shout! Note: that these are not all the films I have watched but they are the ones that I have enjoyed!

    Drillbit Taylor
    Superbad
    All The Boys Love Mandy Lane
    Never Back Down
    Blades of Glory
    Superhero Movie
    Remember the Daze
    Run Fat Boy Run
    Vantage Point
    Old School


    And some others which I can quite think of at the moment!

    Any suggestions will be much appreciated!

    Thanks

    Another one of these posts! ;)

    I don't have much to suggest, as it would seem my interest in movies is different, but might I suggest that you buy/rent a good game. I'm not really a gamer myself, but I do like to waste a few hours on one when there's nothing better to do.

    LOL I post that on all of these threads because it really is the best film ever! The best comedy one, anyway, there is nothing funnier than this! :p (NSFW!)

    EDIT: Except maybe this! Or this!

    Clips are from the movie!

    You see I like to watch a film sometimes before I go to bed!

    I prefer some passive entertainment, im so lazy that gaming counts as active entertainment!

    If you like teen comedies check out movies by John Hughes. He is the Teen Movie master. His movies are favorites of mine. Based on some of the movies on your list I bet you would like Weird Science.:apple:

    If you want to see a very young Steve McQueen, try The Blob. Lots of girls shrieking in that one.

    Very old. Might be at the library. Don't know it it's been converted to DVD yet.

    I got this out with a friend and couldnt stand the first 10 minutes of it! I dont know if I just wasnt in the mood or it really was not my thing but I found the beginning awful!

    Be Kind Rewind had the same effect on me! Even though i finished off another day and still found it awful!

    He wrote Drillbit Taylor which was pretty funny! His other films seem a little dated though! I cant stand watching old films! I find the quality of them awful! Thanks for the suggestion though!

    Noted! Have seen both Starsky and Hutch's and thought them to be pretty good!

    I thought the Descent was great!
    I dont think Ill take to "ils" as I always find in foreign films I spend too much time reading the subtitles and not actually watching! My eyes just seem to get side tracked into always looking at the bottom of the screen!


    After re-reading my first post I thought I should clarify that Im not some obese kid who watches movies all day! I just enjoy a film in my room before I go to bed! Just about to start one now actually!

    Thanks for everyones input! Its been most helpful!

    Boy he uses a lot of exclamation points.;)
    I guess John Hughes stuff from the 1980's is kind of dated now. Although I can't understand how the quality is awful compared to today. To me it seems like a lot of the older teen movies weren't as stupid as the ones now. Then again I really like stuff like that though, even though it's older than I am.:apple:

    Uncle Buck was, to me, surprisingly good.

    Much to learn from that one.
