  1. My last thread inspired me to really get to thinking about what I grew up with.

    There are movies that we watched in our childhood that bring back those butterfly feelings. For me that movie has always been The Land Before Time, it was my favourite movie then, and is my favourite movie now. When Littlefoot's mother passed, I still cry. At the end, I cry even still, a 20something year old adult.

    What are some movies that you have the same reaction to now that you had back then?

  2. The Iron Giant. The scene with dead deer immediately comes to mind; it's the only thing I really remember about that film, and that's after having watched it again relatively recent. That scene affected me so deeply the first time I saw it that a chill goes down my spine every time I think about it. Never before had I seen a kid's film address the inevitability of death so directly, and never have I since. And considering how meek kid's films have become since those days, I doubt I ever will.

  3. Flight of the Navigator, Ghostbusters, Spaceballs, and Labyrinth. They were my favorite movies as a kid.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reminds me of fighting with my younger cousin. She was madly in love with TMNT and I was the regular girly girl with my love for New Kids on the Block. We spent hundreds of hours fighting over which was better. I think I had to endure the original movie over a million times. The girl couldn't stop watching them. From the age of 5-12 she was convinced she was going to marry a turtle....

  4. I used to watch The Land Before Time movies all the time. The Princess Bride and The Lion King are two others.
    And then the greatest basketball movie of all time
  5. I can't even remember how old I was when I saw this... maybe 6 or 7? But it was the first time I cried while watching a movie.
  6. Lethal Weapon 4. Even though I was too young to even be watching the movie, my grandma had it on VHS and I watched it relentlessly, loving the action and the characters. I still love it to this day!

    Labyrinth. The film that made me a David Bowie fan. I had a HUGE crush on the Goblin King (still do) and I loved to hear him sing. That hasn't changed either :)

    Land Before Time. God this movie made me cry as a kid and hug my mom too XD I still cry like a baby while watching it! I even cry when I hear this song:

    The Lion King. I mostly remember this movie because the woman who would babysit me while Mom was at work had it on VHS and I used to watch all the time at her house. Even though I don't love the movie as much as I did back then, I still remember the great memories I had because of it.

    Most Disney movies also fall under the same category of The Lion King.

  7. The original G1 Transformers Movie--- Prime dies. Heart broken me, refused to go to school for three days.
    • Red VS Blue
    • Halo 1-Reach
    • Kotor 1 and 2
    • Star Wars 1-6 (Especially the prequel saber fights. You have any idea how much kids dream of shit like that?)
    • Daddy Daycare (Movie spoke to me as a kid when I wanted to run a daycare of my own when I grew up. It told me that "Men can be good with kids too" back when the common adult mentality was "Keep Men away from the children! Only a Mother knows best!")

  8. It's not a movie, but The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island: Lechuck's revenge thrill me as much now as they did when I was chibi Greenie :3
  9. No matter how many times I watch Spirited Away it feels like the first time. I have the same amount of wonder.

    Opening of the Lion King is still amazing.
    • Smell of Ovaltine
    • Smell of cut grass
    • Blurry porn
    • Green bean casserole

    Mostly food takes me back. But sometimes if I go further into town my old house we lived in when I was a toddler until around 6 or so is still there.
