Its summer and that can only mean one thing, sun soaked days relaxing on the beach or by a pool. You lie there without a care in the world while sipping on your Mojito or (insert beer brand here). But wait we live in the UK, so what are we thinking, we don’t get a summer holiday we get our very own seasons; autumn, winter, spring and spr-utumn, a season that looks like spring but is cold and wet like autumn.
With this in mind we are feeling the pain of every parent this summer holiday as the weather gets wetter, duller and did we mention wetter? Kids are stuck in doors as echoes of “I’m boorrrrrrrred!” and “I’ve seen this one before!” ring around the house. But don’t fret dear reader, once again we blog boffins at 8ball Towers are here to save the day the only way we know how – by 8balling it!
So let us be an interactive babysitter as we have cracked open the vault, dusted off the videos and compiled a summer holiday boredom buster, in the list of movies every 10 year old should watch this summer holiday.
Why? – “It’s only forever, not long at all”
Why? – “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
Why? – “Goonies never say die!”
Why? – “Once you do something, you never forget. Even if you can’t remember.”
Why? – "Feel the rhythm! Feel the rhyme! Get on up, its bobsled time! Cool Runnings!”
WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT
Why? – “I’m not bad. I’m just drawn that way.”
Why? – ” Hey, hey, I’m sorry, okay?… Twenty-six years buried in the deepest darkest jungle, and I still became my father.”
Why? – “Let’s free Willy!”
Why? – “ET phone home.”
Why? – “Remember kid, there’s heroes and there’s legends. Heroes get remembered but legends never die, follow your heart kid, and you’ll never go wrong.”
SCHOOL OF ROCK
Why? – “I pledge allegiance… to the band… of Mr. Schneebly… and will not fight him… for creative control… and will defer to him on all issues related to the musical direction of the band.”
Why? – “Hammond, after some consideration, I’ve decided, not to endorse your park.”… “So have I!”
Why? – “GORDON’S ALIVE!”
MIGHTY MORPHIN' POWER RANGERS

HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHERS STONE
Why? – “It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends.”

STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE
Why? – “Use the Force, Luke.”
Why? – “Oh, no. To live… to live would be an awfully big adventure.”
Why? – “You know, I’ve always wanted a child. And now I think I’ll have one on toast!”
Why? – “I’m Princess Eilonwy. Are you a lord, or a warrior?”… “Uh, no. Uh… I-I-I’m an assistant pig keeper.”
BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSTICKS
Why? – “Treguna, Makoidees, Trecorum, Sadis Dee!”
Why? – “Listen, you little wiseacre: I’m smart, you’re dumb; I’m big, you’re little; I’m right, you’re wrong, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”
THE IRON GIANT
Why? – “It’s bad to kill. Guns kill. And you don’t have to be a gun. You are what you choose to be. You choose. Choose.”
