Monster House (2006) = 6/10. I'm pretty sure this would have scared me as a kid. How can you not like a movie that features an old man yelling at kids to get off the lawn? I hate that they made the annoying kid chubby, though. Although as a child I did know some really annoying fat kids.
Rory O'Shea Was Here (Inside I'm Dancing) (2004) = 8/10. Ireland + muscular dystrophy + independence + snarky Rory. That's quite a combination. This was so realistic to what disabled people might experience, it was quite painful to watch. In fact, it was so realistic I looked up to see if the two main actors had muscular dystrophy or not.
I broke another piece of dinnerware over the weekend. This time, it was nearly justified. I had a couple of clean soup bowls on the counter drying (because I think an actual dish rack is a waste of space). I picked up one of the bowls to put in the cupboard and gave it a quick peer in to make sure there were no particles inside. Indeed, there was something inside- a small spider. I am not generally scared of spiders. I am, however, terrified of some surprises. One short "eeeaaaaaahhh" and unclenching of the fist later and I have one less bowl.
And this is why we buy the cheap Target stuff.
