  • Why in the world would anyone suggest I,Robot and Chronicles of Riddick for the viewing of boys aged 5-10....these are PG-13 RATED!!

    My family LOVED, LOVED Plant 51. I've heard that the YOUNGER guys would love Astro Boy, but heading towards 10 might find it a bit cheesy.

    How to Train your Dragon is great IF you want to go to the theatre.

  • five to ten year olds? neither. I suggest a movie like... I, Robot. or the Chronicles or Riddick.... if they're boys.

  • We watched Planet 51 and our boys said they liked Astro boy better, I didn't watch that with them so I don't know what it's about. Maybe look up It give reviews on all movies.

  • Skip both of them and take them to see How to Train your Dragon. Best animated movie ever.

  • Astroboy made my 5yo DD sad. We have Planet 51 but havent watched it yet.

  • Riddick??? hell no! IRobot maybe - my girls liked it.

    planet 51 was fun, and so was astroboy but I think that a 10year old boy wouldn't be too impressed with it, my 9 year old girl was bored.

    but I agree with twinsplus2 - How to Train your Dragon is an absolute FANTASTIC movie for kids of all ages.
