I just rewatched Jumanji (the Robin Williams version of course) with my daughters. Not quite the same, but they are a lot younger than your daughter.
They thought it was pretty scary, but also had lots of fun with it.

pyaasa is much better than sholay
It certainly sounds more like my sort of movie, though I did enjoy Sholay more than expected. Just a comfortable samurai movie in disguise.

They have changed the way they teach history here in france, so that the WWII is teach @14 or 15 years old ?? I studied it at least 2 or 3 full years older...
To me you can't teach WWII without showing certain films as a document...


2 weekends ago we watched Jurrasic Park together and she was surprised on one of the Jump Scare hehe.
I teached her the obvious jump scare techniques and she'll be more prepared next time ,)

I saw the Tarantino Film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

It is very long, 2 hours and 40, but I didn't mind that. I was really hoping Tarantino had matured, and for the first 2 hours it kind of appeared that he had. There is some great material about acting and the studio system, and you really get inside the characters. I felt Rick Dalton was particularly well realised, as was Margot Robbie's portrayal of Sharon Tate. Great empathetic stuff.

If you go into the movie without knowing about the Manson family and Sharon Tate, as the guy who went with me did not, you can miss a lot of the poignancy of the movie. So read up on wiki if you don't.

Two things made me uncomfortable about the movie. At the end of the day he had to make it into a revenge fantasy, like several of his other movies. He doesn't seem to be able to escape from himself, like the Coen Bros probably have managed to do. The other was the stuff about underage eroticism, which is likely an oblique comment on Polanski's escapades after his tragedy.

Well done to Damian Lewis for his cameo as Steve McQueen.

woo woo, Dalton acts well in one TV-western scene and feels validated.

I personally felt - as someone who is not generally a big fan of Tarantino - that this was the one film that, thematically, actually made sense to depict a "revenge fantasy". If you're willing to give QT some credit as a writer (understandable if not), the ending is actually fairly powerful (in a sad and disturbing way) and layered, especially when looked at in the context of today's world. If you're not, it'll likely seem like more of the same nonsense, which is a take I can respect, but definitely wouldn't agree with. It sounds crazy saying it but I really think it's one of my favorite films of the decade.

That's life though, small victories!
