    I loved Disney movies (still do! ^_^) I think my favorite was Sleeping Beauty. I loved the fairies and how they baked the cake and make her dress change colors. :blink:

    Okay, I don't think anyone will remember this, but there was this movie when I was younger that I loved.

    All I know was that it was about a princess troll, who likes this troll who works for her or something.

    They had these eggs that hatch all these little trolls (or birds?) and they each had a specific personality. One was like a painter, and I don't remember the other ones. They helped the worker troll get the princess troll.

    Yes, it was as completely cheesy as it sounds, but I adored it. :lol: Does anyone know the name?

    I went through a phase when I was about 3 or 4 where I was ADDICTED to The Wizard of Oz. My parents read me the books (I didn't quite know how to read yet), and I watche dthe movei EVERY day obsessivly. I even walked around the house in these little red patent leather shoes, and wore a blue dress, braided my hair and carried a stuffed dog in a picnic basket. According to my parents, I made people call me "Dorothey" :blush: (I choose not to believbe that:innocent: ) But that was a phase, and it ended (thankfully!)

    A Little Pricess (the shirley temple movie) totally traumatized me at first- again I was about 3 when I saw it for the 1st time. It was the 1st time I realized that my parents weren't immortal and I questioned what would become of me if God forbid something were to happen to them. When I got older though, I read the book, and saw the remake, and I was able to take it for what it was: a lovely, sad story of a girls determination, generosity and imagination.

    Generally I went through phases where I'd watch the same movie repeatedly. This included most Disney movies (some of which I still love:blush: ),
    The Journey of Natty Gann,
    The Adventures of Pippi Longstocking,
    old musicals (Singin' in the Rain, My Fair Lady, The Sound of Music, Grease, and Grease 2- hey I was too young to know it was bad!, West Side Story....)
    Troop Beverly Hills
    The Parent Trap
    Candleshoe
    Freaky Friday
    The Secret Garden
    The Love Bug movies
    something called The Blinkins
    The Princess Bride (which I still:heart: )
    Vice Versa
    The Neverending Story I and II
    Savannah Smiles
    and many more...

    Labrynth was sooo scary to me

    I loved the movies, The Last Unicorn, The Electric Grandmother, and a movie called Bach and Broccoli. It was a French Canadian film that had English tracks and now when I see it I realize how awesomely bad it is.
