Movies You Loved as a Child
I was just thinking about celebrities who were also child stars and I remembered Thora Birch. "Monkey Trouble" was one of my favourite movies when I was a kid, although I had no idea who she was at the time. I still love films with criminals (monkey or not) and it dawned on me that my movie choices still haven't changed all that much over the years. I thought it'd be fun to compare everyone's favourite films as kids to their tastes now.
Which movies did you love as a child?

I guess people's age will be more apparent with this post Mine was ET, hands down. I remember crying at a movie for the first time and it felt like the strangest feeling to cry b/c of a movie. I was just used to crying for not getting what I wanted or scraping my knee or something

Oh, I love ET! Also one of my favourites, although I have to say that I found it kind of scary when I first saw it...

hmmm...

ET was good...I remember, the first time watching it at home, crying in my mother's lap, lol.

Pretty In Pink was a favorite, still is.

Stripes...my father watched it pretty often, so I guess it rubbed off on me.

"Wizard of Oz" was my most favorite growing up. Along with the usual Disney classics;animated or otherwise.

As a kid, I loved watching Harriet the Spy. I remember renting it all the time, then finally buying my own copy.

Not to mention, of course, those Disney cartoons.

My older girls always loved " Goonies" I think thats the name. It's about some kids that go on a pirate ship hunt for a treasure. Does anyone remember this one?

YES! I was afraid of ET as well. The part when he goes all floury white is creepy as hell. I could never get past that part when I was little. I was also really afraid of Logan's Run.

So, yeah, I can't really remember my favorite childhood movies...just the ones that scared me the most.

lol I loved the goonies, sean astin was adorable in that movie - I really liked corey feldman in it, especially when he's talking to the maid in spanish about the 'drug stash'

I think my favourite movies when I was little were the wizard of oz, peter pan & alice in wonderland - I seem to have had a theme going

Oh, I was terrified of that film! I still remember the scene where they tried to put a kid's hand in the blender...
Mind you, Home Alone also scared me at the time...

I would just watch anything with a murder. Watched and rewatched every Agatha Christie, regardless of who was playing Poirot because to me it didn't matter.
