Movies we grew up with

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by LogicfromLogic, Sep 16, 2014.

  1. I think the title is self explanatory.

    Movies I always watched as a kid (when I was at my best friend's house) were:

    -Space Balls
    -Land Before Time

    There were a few others but I can't remember them. What about you? What did you grow up with?

  2. Land Before Time is definitely in my list. As well as Toy Story, Bug's Life, a lot of old Pixar movies, really. Let's see... What else? There's The Iron Giant, Thomas and the Magic Railroad... Oh god there's so many! I can't possibly remember them all.

  18. From Childhood? Hrm. I didn't watch many movies in childhood, didn't have the time or the money. Hm...

    Lion King
    Toy Story
    A couple other Disney films (can't remember specifically which)
    Space Jam (this movie was bad but in a good way, hahahaha)
    Star Trek (TOS) & Babylon 5 movies
    Two Pokemon movies, again, can't remember which
    Independence Day

    That's basically the entire list for the first 10-ish years of my life. I didn't watch any anime beyond Americanized until I was like... 12? 13? It's just that when you grow up in poverty, food > movies. I did catch the occasional movie on basic cable though. (I loved when History channel did the fictional movie with commentary at the beginning and end about what historical time frame the movie was depicting. Then they stopped doing that for PYRAMID ALIENZ!1! Grr.)
  19. Since somehow no one has mentioned it, I'll just leave this here...


    And for all those people that said Labyrinth, this is for you.
