If it wasn't obvious from my list...I too would argue there needs to be a separate mount for cartoons/animated films.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
I think the question I have is (if it hasn't already been asked) - Is it movies a kid would enjoy or is it a movie you enjoyed while you were a kid (or in my case, my daughters and I enjoyed when they were a kid?)
I edited the op to exclude cartoons.
Kids like stupid stuff, so I have no idea what a kid would like outside of my own experience. So I'm going with movies I liked as a kid.
Good luck getting most kids to pay attention all the way through Neverending Story.
What? Unless you're defining kids as like 5 or under, every kid I knew watched Neverending Story and loved it.
3 Ninjas was watched in my house approximately 457 times. Even last week!
Without cartoons, Home Alone and Sandlot are LOCKS. I could get down with Goonies/Neverending Story as the last two.
BTW, how come Harry Potter haven't been mentioned yet? (unless I missed it somewhere). I know adults loved the movie but I still considered the original one a kids movie.
Because the first Harry Potter movie sucked.
Second Hand Lions (one of the most underrated movies ever)
Princess Bride (borderline kids movie)
Despite being a ninjaphile, I didn't realize the cultural significance of 3 Ninjas. I guess its because I was in college when it came out. I might have to download it "for mini-me."
Fourth one I might go with Willy Wonka
Is this serious? Stand by Me was an R-rated movie (that I saw with my father when I was a kid, but whatever).
It's weird, I didn't watch a lot of kids movies when I was a kid. They didn't pump them out like they have for the last 20 years and my mom just wasn't into it. For me, my movies from when I was a kid are things like Revenge of the Nerds, Star Wars, Strange Brew, Superfuzz, Stripes, Beverly Hills Cop, Trading Places, and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Basically my mother just sat me in front of HBO, sports or thursday night NBC with Cosby, Family Ties, Cheers, Night Court and Hill Street Blues/LA Law for most of my formative years.
I wouldn't put it on Mt Rushmore but I'd probably argue that its a better movie than most the ones that would be on my Mt Rushmore.
Yeah, if you consider Star Wars and Raiders 'kids movies' then game over.
Wait, you haven't seen 3 Ninjas? Unpossible.
We should run!
We should hide!
We should KICK. THEIR. BUTTS!
Yeah, no way is Stand By Me a kids movie, WTF.
I'd say Goonies and Princess Bride are my top 2. I'll have to think about the other 2 slots.
"I'm Colt because I'm fast, He's Rocky because he is strong, He's Tum Tum because he'll eat anything."
"I won't eat dog poop"
I'm pretty sure I saw it when I was in college or law school, but probably some Sunday morning when I was insanely hungover. I need to rewatch.
Also, if this was board was mixed gender, I'd have to assume that Princess Diaries would be on the list, no?
3 Ninjas is an amazing movie.
Has not aged particularly well, but it should be very high on the list.
The two HP movies that I would consider "kids movies" (1 and 2) were the worst of the series (still watchable though).
Christmas Story is on the Mt. Rushmore of Christmas movies, it can't be on this list because people only watch it 1 month (and really one 24-hour period) of the year.
I was at a party last night and made a Princess Diaries reference. Don't judge me.
