    What movie(s) did you love best as a child? Was it animated like a Disney film, or was it something sort of live-action like Willow or Labyrinth, maybe the Princess Bride or The Never-Ending Story?

    Back To The Future, Goonies, Star Wars, Cloak & Dagger. I'm sure I'll think of more later.

    I'm dating myself, I was young long b4 CGI and other modern forms of animation, leaving a much smaller pool to pick from. I'd have to say The Wizard of Oz and The Jungle Book were tied for my favs.

    I have grandkids now and watch all the new movies, and am jealous as hell.

    My brother was obsessed with this movie. I just always remember the scene where they buzz by Twisted Sister filming a video, so random.

    For some reason, this movie just popped into my head yesterday. You can watch the whole thing on Youtube. Loved it.

    One of my favorites when I was little was The Bad News Bears in Breaking Training. I know now how much people disliked it, but I loved baseball growing up, and I loved watching this movie. It was pretty much a recording I think, because the tape I had didn't have the first 15 minutes or so, but it was one of those things that I was so young that I didn't care.

    I also grew up watching the Brave Little Toaster, and at one point in my childhood, gathered all of the appliances in the house that represented each character and started playing with them like toys.

    I saw Who Framed Roger Rabbit? at the old drive-in when I was a kid. It was always a favorite of mine after that.
