Default Favourite films from when you were young!

Ive just been sorting out my sons video collection and found a few of the ones i gave him and it made me wonder what films you all remember as your faves from when you were young.

The Dark Crystal is one of mine, i remember that film scared me the first time i saw it but i watched it hundreds of times after that.

Red Sonja ok i know not one of their best films but i think i was only about 7 when i saw this and i thought it was brilliant. I remember watching it 7 times in one day..it was raining outside lol

Labyrinth. I loved this and knew all the songs off by heart.

Legend. I was a massive tom cruise fan and i loved this film.

Apart from red sonja i still have all the other films and occasionally still watch them

1 Million Years BC made a big impression on me (well a couple of impressions) plus you could look at it without having to understand anything apart from "Ugh" and being young you could use the excuse of looking at it for the (ahem) dinosaurs and get away with it.

Another was the film "She" and the early bond films, particularly Dr No, From Russia With Love and Goldfinger.

Peter Sellers Pink Panther films. Laurel & Hardy & Charlie Chaplin films

Most of my favourite movies as a kid were older movies that aired yearly on TV or were re-released in theaters every 5 years or so. Since there weren't VCRs back then, that was the only time you got to see those, and it was always a big deal when they were on.

Here are a few I loved:

  • The Wizard of Oz
  • The Sound of Music
  • Mary Poppins
  • Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Factory - a little creepy for young kids (especially the scene on the boat), but Gene Wilder is awesome in that movie
  • Peter Pan (1960 - with Mary Martin) cheesy, but I still loved it
I'm sure there are others, but those are the ones that come to mind for now.

All of the above!!

I also saw the first Star Wars movie 52x, at the movie theater. There was an ongoing rivalry as to who could see it the most, with the kids in my neighborhood. That's how I remember the exact number. I happen to have won that contest.

It was one of my fav's, which made it easy to re-watch!

52 times! You must be able to recite the entire movie after that. lol

I did see Star Wars and also Grease (my cousin saw it 11x in theater - wouldn't have won your contest) in the theater - both of which I really enjoyed.

Steph, I loved The Labyrinth when I was younger too and I knew all the songs off by heart. A brilliant film. I kinda had a crush on David Bowie, lol!!

Other favourites of mine when I was younger:

The Flight of the Navigator
Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (I'd read all the Roald Dhal books!!)
War Games
D.A.R.Y.L.
The Goonies !!
Grease (I still love it!)
The Little Rascals
Back to the Future
The Princess Bride (loved this film and was forever quoting it!!)
Ruthless People (one of the funniest films of all time!)
Superman
Beaches
Dirty Dancing!!
Beetle juice
Ghost Busters
Adventures in babysitting
