I recently showed my niece who is 15 'The Last Starfighter', which she loved. We got talking about movies she has and hasn't seen - and boy, do the ones she hasn't seen outnumber the ones she has.

What must watch movies would you suggest I add to her list?

Back to the Future (1,2 and 3)
Jaws (1... I am really going to only recommend 1 for this series)
Goonies
The Sandlot
Indiana Jones (1,2,3 and 4)
Star Wars (1,2,3,4,5 and 6)
Blade Runner (at 15 this would be fine for her)
The NeverEnding Story
Old Yeller (*tear*)
The Wizard of Oz
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (With Gene Wilder)
Mary Poppins
Tron (sequal coming soon)
The older Star Trek films are also good

I am sure there are HUNDREDS more - but that is a good start.
Also the book: The Best Old Movies for Families is a great read chocked full of ideas.

The Sandlot

I've never heard of this movie. Just added it to my Netflix queue.
Is it one adults would enjoy or is it aimed just at teens?

If you're going with Labyrinth and/or The Dark Crystal, it would be well worth your time to track down Jim Henson's The Storyteller. Time was this was dirt cheap on DVD, but if Amazon's any indication, it's gone out of print. A library may have it.

Two - it's just a great movie. Especially if you've ever watched or played a pickup baseball game as a kid. It was on cable recently and I watched a bit of it, it's really a great movie. From an adult stand point, it's a reminiscent kind of movie, when life was simpler, all you needed was a few friends, a ball, a bat, and.... a sandlot.

Is that a movie, or just a point of information?

Checking imdb...

Oh, it's a movie. I don't know that it's appropriate for a 15-year-old, though.
