I also remember really liking Explorers, with River Phoenix and Ethan Hawke.
Directed by Joe Dante. With Ethan Hawke, River Phoenix, Bobby Fite, Bradley Gregg. Ben Crandall, an alien-obsessed kid, dreams one night of a circuit board. Drawing out the circuit, he and his friends Wolfgang and Darren set it up...
I'll just list the movies my eight-year-old daughter has enjoyed the most:
Sound of Music
A Little Princess
Goonies and Home Alone have to be on imo. The other 2 slots are up for debate.
I love "The Last Satrfighter". (one of the greatest lines ever. What do we do now? We die.)
I think of that movie as a young teenager type of movie though. (teenagers are kids I guess)
I feel like of all the Pixar movies, kids go the most nuts over Finding Nemo.
And I'm glad someone mentioned The Land Before Time earlier (even though I realize we're not including animated movies). It certainly jumped the shark with all the sequels, but the first one is a classic.
Nola had a long and graphic response all typed out before realizing he had omitted the last "i" in his initial reading of the thread title.
Can't believe I forgot about Pee Wee. I'm updating my list:
Pee Wee's Big Adventure
Large Marge scared the shit out of me when I first saw it.
Large Marge permanently scarred me. I still have nightmares about that scene.
Whoever said Swiss Family Robinson: I love you. I used to watch the shit out of that as a kid. I'd really like to watch it right now... I've forever wanted a bad ass tree house because of that movie.
No love for the Little Giants in here huh?
And Space Jam would be a sure thing if the majority of it wasn't animated.
RACING ON FUCKING ANIMALS ARE YOU KIDDING ME. ULTIMATE BEST THING EVER.
"Here is the Treehouse in Tobago that was used for the movie. I could live here! You can see all the production people getting ready to make a shot. They say the film made $40,000,000, making it the highest grossing film of 1960 ahead of mega hits Spartacus and Exodus. Wow, I didn’t know that! Question: Do you think this tree was the inspiration behind WDW Treehouse Villa’s?"
DisneybyMark is a new kind of Disney fansite created by ex-Imagineer, Mark Hickson. Journey with Mark as he presents his unique perspective on Disney’s past, present, and future. Enjoy!
Not only did they race on animals but they fortified and repelled a pirate attack.
I would totally smash Hocus Pocus era SJP
Can someone explain how Disney has never re-made Swiss Family Robinson? That could be an easy 4-5 movies for them.
I can't believe no one has mentioned The Shining.
You just did in your post before this one.
I would think that, if we're talking the Mount Rushmore of "all-time " greatest kids movies, Mary Poppins and The Wizard of Oz would definitely be in the conversation. ET, Home Alone and The Goonies would be my other three.
Not necessarily saying these are my personal favorites, just think these would be in the mix.
"Academics is important, because without them....you aren't allowed to play!"
Do I really have to be the one to post these to be in the mix?
Directed by John Korty. With Eric Walker, Warwick Davis, Fionnula Flanagan, Guy Boyd. Wicket the Ewok and his friends agree to help two shipwrecked human children on a quest to find their parents.
Directed by Ron Howard. With Val Kilmer, Joanne Whalley, Warwick Davis, Jean Marsh. A reluctant dwarf must play a critical role in protecting a special baby from an evil queen.
Thats true and they already have the attraction to it built in Disney world. So it would be a win win.
I would like to throw Casper out there because it was awesome, and i might have had a crush on Christina Ricci at the time.
