What is one movie from your childhood that you think is a "must see" for your own children?
ONE? XD I've got a list! ^_^ I think Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is at the top of said list though. And then as many Disney movies as possible. And The Worst Witch. xD
Although it's not as good as the book written and published by Jean Craighead George in 1959, the movie, "My Side of the Mountain" is a great story about a boy who runs away and lives off the land. He learns a lot about life, nature and himself. This is my favorite childhood book! There is a sequel (book) "The Far Side of the Mountain" which continues the story. That's my recommendation.
Lion King without a doubt. It's timeless and beautiful and anyone can relate.
I would have to say that it is "The Goonies". It was my favorite movie growing up.
Return of the Jedi! without a doubt. JSMatthews... I loved that book... My side of the mountain... did you know there is a squeal?
I know you said just one...BUT, as a child of the 80s, I have too many choices to share:
2) Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure
3) The Secret of the Nimh
5) The Never Ending Story
6) Muppet Treasure Island (not from 80s- but hilarious!!)
I will make my future children watch labyrinth! This is a must see movie for all ages. It inspires me to do something good everyday.
I loved The Princess Bride! We watch it all the time.
Just introduced my girl to Jem, she loves the music.
I've got a list too!!! A long one... ok ok ok i can narrow it down to 2: The Sound of Music and Heidi.
Disney Classics! I'm sorry I can't pick just one out of them! I love them all!
There were a lot of movies I enjoyed when I was growing up and some I shared with my own kids (who are now 20 and 27). I think many children's movies are timeless with themes that span the ages and cultures -- friendship, love, overcoming obstacles, and so on.
Snow white and the seven dwarfs is my all time favorite. The story is beautiful and animation is also too amazing as compared to the technology available at that time.
I would say where the red fern grows or Lassie - classics
Thanks for asking
Raiders of the lost Ark! I felt I was completely inside the movie. Loved the adventure movies anyway. So exciting!
My ones are....
I'm torn between Labyrinth and The Witches (the Roald Dahl story)...
Definitely there would be a lot of Disney movies on my list. Some would be:
- Mulan (my friends and I watched this at my house this weekend, and we were singing along to all of the songs!)
- Tangled (it is just adorable!)
- The Lion King
- maybe the Toy Stories
- the Back to the Future trilogy
Although musicals are no longer popular, Fiddler in the Roof was the last movie that my parents took us to and it was thoroughly enjoyable. The movie also had a basis in History and demonstrated the reasons for the first large migration to the United States. That migration involved Russian Jews who were targeted by the anti-semetic revolutionaries in what became the Soviet Union.
Those same attitudes are rearing an ugly head in the Occupy Wall Street movement designed by the current administration as a method to lead the takers to hate the makers.
I don't want to date myself so I am just going to say any Walt Disney movie. He was a genius and knew exactly what kids of any era wanted to see.
Lion king and tom and jerry series , also not to forget home alone series as well . great to watch always
Can I name more than one, please?
Star Wars trilogy
Wizard of Oz
Secret of NIMH
Unfortunately, I have "made" my children watch some of my favorite childhood films only to be told how stupid, lame, or boring they were. You'd laugh, but they aren't the cartoon classics you would think of. My "must see" movies for my children included (but not limited to), "Popeye" the movie, "Grease and Grease II", "The Sound of Music", "The Neverending Story", "Josie and The PussyCats", "Sheena of The Jungle", "Back To The Beach", "Footloose", "Night of The Comet", and others. I can't believe I am admitting this.
Secret Garden, Never ending story, The Goonies, problem Child, Annie, Splash, All Disneys, Marry Poppins, Oliver Twist, Labyrinth (have that on dvd and my 7yr old loves it). And of course that one film that i watched over and over again and drove my own parents Crazy with........Grease lol
