Favorite Childhood Films (Merged:Movies that nerds loved)

Postby Sir_Elderberry » Sat Jan 26, 2008 3:48 am UTC

So, I just watched the Lion King for the first time in a while, and I decided to ask: What film(s) are iconic to your childhood? Lion King, as mentioned, is all that comes to mind immediately for me. Oh, and Toy Story. Ah, Disney.

I think the movie I most liked when I was a child was The Last Unicorn. I also liked Labyrinth, some Disney etc., but I particularly remember that one.

According to Wikipedia, they've done 13 and no. 14 is in production. I think the first one I saw was number 3 on video, then we might have rented the second and I might have saw fragments of the first one during showings on TV channels.

Movies of my childhood, or the ones that immediately spring to mind:
- Power Rangers
- Lion King and other classic Disney ones - I particularly liked 101 Dalmations
- Home Alone (the ones after the first 2 were crap though)
- Neverending Story
- "that one with the little blonde kid who goes into a library, passes out and dreams he's in an animated world with a bunch of books looking for the green exit"

Yes! It was called The Pagemaster and was freakin' sweet. I was always bummed that my books would never talk to me.

I also had a couple of musicals I watched over and over. I actually managed to break our VHS copy of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang by watching it so many times. I can still sing most of the songs from the 1967 Dr. Doolittle and Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka. Eddie Murphy and Johnny Depp never happened, okay?

Of course almost anything by Disney is tops of my childhood upbringing, mainly the classics. I saw a few of them re-released like Snow White, Cinderella, Bambi (twice, first when I was 3 or 4 and then again when I was 9 or 10), Lady and the Tramp, and several of the new releases like Lion King, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and so on.

I did see the first Land Before Time, but not the others. Tried to watch the second one on TV and it wasn't as good.

I remember seeing Rock-A-Doodle on TV a couple of times.

A friend of mine had Neverending Story. I had my parents tape it off TV when it aired on a local station. It was uncut, but had lots of commercials.

Radio Flyer was one of my favorite movies when I was a bit older.

Wow, it's been so many years since I saw The Aristocats. I really need to watch that one again. I also saw The Neverending Story about 10 times in the theater. Years later I read the book and realized it's pure awesome.

Hook, Rescuers Down Under, Empire Strikes Back, Short Circuit, The Lion King, Not Quite Human, and The Princess Bride were probably my absolute favorites. God alone knows what I saw in NQH.

Antz was a good alternative. Very adult though if you ask me, they got away with some risque stuff. But that's not a very old movie, neither is pixar...

Power Rangers! Fun fact. Tommy is still doing power rangers to this day. He owns a dojo in LA and continues to be a ranger! I think that's pretty impressive. Honestly the original power rangers movie is brilliant. I mean seriously, they ended the movie with Van Halen! lol going back that's pretty hilarious.

The Secret of NIMH. Excellent.

TMNT: The Secret of the Ooze. I think I watched that movie so many times my eyes turned green. I owned the first and third one too, but the second one was ultimately the most fun. The first one was too dark and the third one was just kinda weird. There wasn't enough April in it.

Surf Ninjas. Rob Schneider!

The 3 Ninjas: The original movie and the second one, kick back. The third one, knuckle up was ridiculously bad. The second one was my favorite though, where they go to Japan. Though the first one was pretty freakin good too.

Wow that's like 5 ninja movies. I'm pretty sure I dressed up as a ninja for pretty much every Halloween of my childhood as well. Wonder what happened to that urge?

Wow that's right. Vanilla Ice was in that movie. That's pretty awesome.

Never read the comics. Dark as well?
Not only was the story dark, but the filming was dark too. That might've been an early 90s trend though with film-making. The whole atmosphere was just dark though. I want to say Blade Runner dark, but not in the future.

The Nightmare Before Christmas had an unrivaled influence on me as a child.

Aladdin

The original Wallace and Gromit shorts

Fantasia (Though I didn't really understand it)

Pete's Dragon (UGH in retrospect. Just UGH.)

Feivel Goes West (See above. Actually, this one's still decent, but every Don Bluth film is just surreal.)

I can't believe how many millions of times I watched this stupid Disney "Best Of" movie, just because it had the Tron Lightcycles scene... it was years before I knew there was a whole Tron movie to go with it. :( So many wasted years.

I'm only 18 and I grew up with three of those (I haven't seen either the Secret of NIMH or Tron, although I do want to see Tron at some point). So don't feel too old.

Also grew up with:

A New Hope (Star Wars IV)
Short Circuit ("You don't know your fluids! This is battery fluid!" That, and the blatant product placement of Radio Shack. <3)
Classic Disney stuff (apparently especially 101 Dalmations, according to my parents)
The Matrix (I first saw it when I was 12, but I don't know if that really counts as "growing up with it," although I was hooked on it for several years afterwards.)
Indiana Jones: The Last Crusade

Looking at this list makes me love my parents even more. They knew how to select movies!

I lived off of:
Any Star Wars movie
Any Star Trek movie (mostly ST6, The Undiscovered Country)
Classic Disney (like Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, etc.)
Early Pixar (except A Bug's Life. I liked Antz better)
Any Muppet movie
Muppet Treasure Island (I loved this movie so much that it is separate from the rest of the Muppets movies)
The Thief and the Clobber (not well known, but this animated adventure was a favorite of myself, my family, and my cousings (along with Muppet Treasure Island))

I also second the Pagemaster. That was a great movie.

For those who never saw "Secret of NIMH", read the book first: Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH. Then watch the movie. Then come back and don't say you had a headache trying to piece the book together from the movie. A lot was left out, mainly the entire history of the Rats as told by Nicodemus.

Likewise, if you've seen the movie, read the book. You will more than likely get the same headache.

When I was 9 or 10, I remember most of the local networks, along with Nickelodeon, TBS (which was a local station for us in Georgia), and a few other cable networks doing a simulcast of "Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue". It was about a boy who becomes hooked on drugs, and his little sister's toys and cartoon-related merchandise (Garfield telephone, picture with ALF, a couple of dolls, etc.) come to life, and with the aid of other cartoon characters, get the boy to realize that drugs are bad, m'kay. So JUST SAY NO, m'kay.

If I began seeing cartoon characters from the TV come to life, and address me directly, I'd swear that drugs really are bad, m'kay.

I remember watching "The Care Bears Movie" at my babysitter's house. IIRC, it dealt with a boy who had some evil magician's spell book that brought darkness and destruction to everyone. My babysitter's daughter loved the Care Bears, so if she wanted to watch it, I was forced to watch it, along with any other kid who went to their house.

Agreed. We read the original Nimh novel as one of those "class reader" texts when I was around age 9. Loved the story back then. Our teacher specifically pointed out once we'd finished the novel that the film animation adaptation that we saw afterwards would have a completely different, and at times, derailed, plotline. It definitely showed. I don't think too many original fans consider the film to be canon.

I don't remember much about the book, except the entire history Nicodemus tells Mrs. Frisby about how the rats came to be, how they lived in the storeroom of a grocery store, how they were trapped and collected by a few people who worked for NIMH, the experiments done on them, including the little screen, which flashed a picture of an object, then the word associated with the object. I may have to search for it and re-read it.

Hell YEAH. The Muppet Movie and The Muppet Family Christmas are both sacred VHS tapes with old 7-up commercials (with the dot guys!) and whiny spots from being rewound so many times. We still watch them every year. Damn I love the Muppets.


Woa. I forgot those. I remember the pirate one. And then there was this big family trip one. It had to do with kermit leg's about to be used for food.

Yeah, that was the Muppet Movie, the first of the Muppet movies in 1979. Not that I saw it until about ten years after, but still. Darn you Doc Hopper!
