Um, maybe i am  a prude , but several of the suggestions aren’t quite right for a long 13 year old.

I suggest
All the Star Wars except the recent ones.

The matrix trilogy currently on Netflix.

Lemony snickets a series of unfortunate events. Also on netfix

Grease, if you think it's appropriate.

My 10yo was just shown it last weekend. Not sure how to feel, was planning to canvas that sort of content a little later!

Silence of the Lambs

For an early teen?!

It's got an MA 15+ rating for a reason

Dead Poets' Society
The Fisher King
Space Balls
Blazing Saddles
Labyrinth (even if just to honour David Bowie's outfits)
Die Hard

Maybe to mix it up, watch some Weird Al Yankovich music videos.. i very much recommend "I'm Fat" and "The Saga Begins".

I watched it at that age and all those bits went right over my head.

Not sure I'd be showing that to the average 13yo.  There's an awful lot of talk about c*cksucking going on in it.

Terminator was a hit. Though DS left after about 20 mins into Stand by Me -DH and I watched this to the end. Shame-the pace was a bit slow for him but perhaps you get more out of this as an adult. Reminded me of the talent we lost when River Phoenix died -even as a kid he was great actor.

Blues Brothers

That’s a lot of 90s movies, I hope your DS gets to choose some movies himself!

I was just looking at all those reply’s and thought.  If I was 13, I’d be wanting to watch current movies.  Not reliving my parents childhood.  

I have fond memories of when video stores first opened up, my parents would send us kids down and we would watch the latest videos as a family. Looking back now there was probably quite a few they weren’t interested in, but they never showed it.
