I'm watching E.T. right now.

I also loved The Fox and the Hound, that came out in England around the same time, I think. They both had me sobbing, when I was seven-years-old. I hate love triangles, but friendship-related movies get me right there. <points at heart>

They are rebooting lots of movies...like Total Recall. I would like to see ET and Back to the Future remade.

I would hate to see ET remade. I think it's great just the way it is.

I heard about Total Recall, and they re-made Footloose and Fright Night. I actually liked Fright Night, but haven't seen the new Footloose. Straw Dogs was a remake, too.

Straw Dogs was good. I liked Fright Night as its own movie, but I didn't think it was a good remake. Didn't see Footloose.

Oh dang E.T. lol, I remember watching it when I was young. It scared the doo-doo butter out of me! Especially when the kid and the alien was dying.
Scary stuff for a kid lol. -.-'

I mostly watched different Chinese TV series my dad bought. The most memorable one was Song Bird.

Plot:

quote:
The story is based on a young girl named Zhou Xuan (Nnadia Chan) taking place during the Republic of China 1930's era. Zhou originally came from a poor background. She managed to join the Bright Moonlight Song and Dance Troupe to try to make a living, and met composer Yim Chi-wah (Leon Lai). A record producer recognized her skill, and helped her launch a music career in a very difficult time.

The backdrop of the falling Republic of China led to the collapse of the Shanghai Shidaiqu music industry. Zhou Xuan would suffer from mental breakdown and die an early age, but her music would make her a legend.


Lead actor/actress:

Leon Lai

Nnadia Chan

Song they sang together on the show.

Sorry I know you asked for movies Teasel, but I don't have any fave childhood movies.

I was practically raised on Disney movies like The Little Mermaid and Hocus Pocus, and I'll still watch them out of nostalgia.

Same for movies like Casper or the first 2 Addams Family movies (that is the ones that came out in 1991 and 1993), and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

A favorite of mine when I was 11 was The Crow, the first R-rated movie I snuck into. It got me into music and skateboarding (though I didn't get a skateboard until my 14th birthday). Still, it's not a favorite today. I loved it intensely as a child and a teen, but now it just seems kinda silly. I'll watch it when it's on but I won't go out of my way to get it.

The Crow part one with Brandon Lee is one of my faves.

I grew up watching lots of Disney movies, Super Man, oh, The Never Ending Story

The Alien movies although it scared me as well as Freddy Kruger.

Hmmm...

The ones I've bought again for my kids >grin< include:

* The Secret of NiMH
* The Dark Crystal
* Legend
* The Princess Bride
* The Phantom Tollbooth
* Willow
* Labyrinth
* Fraggle Rock (not a movie, but they have the series on DVD )
* The Point!
* Edited to add: The Last Unicorn (don't know how I could've forgotten it)
* ...There are a few others, but I can't think of them right now.

Edited to add: There are a few others (not from my childhood...but I'm a Pisces Sun, so I'm not sure I'll ever leave ) in heavy rotation for the girls:

* Most Miyazaki films (What's that? Heroine saves the day and/or reconciles two morally ambiguous foes? Why, yes, I will indoctrinate my girls...)
* Stardust
* ...and, again, drawing a blank. Gr.

Great topic!!

A lot of mockingbirds are mine as well (I think we are about the same age?). I LOVED anything with fantasy, mythology and magic. I still do, actually.

Princess Bride, The Dark Crystal and The Goonies were the best! The Last Unicorn is my favorite cartoon of all time. Who Framed Roger Rabbit is one of the first movies I remember seeing at the theater.

I also liked anything with time travel, back in time or forward. Movies that just made you go WOW!

Same here, for my son when he was little.
Add in Star Wars of course.

I even had Star Wars sheets and the (drumroll, please) BED TENT.
It was the best thing EVER.
