A movie you associate with your child hood?
« on: September 24, 2014, 02:06:39 PM »
Name a movie that when you see it, or even hear the title you automatically go into Nostalgia mode and memories from your childhood come to mind

For me it is Throw Mama From The Train. By the far the most quoteable movie for me and my sis. We watched the VHS tape so much when we were kids it stopped working. "OWEN LOVES HIS MAMA".

I'm a total Disney Princess fangirl and got to see a special showing of "Sleeping Beauty" when I was six.  I dreamed of and fantasized about that movie for years.  Still do as a matter of fact.

It was The Labyrinth for me, I was obsessed with that film growing up. It also introduced me to Brian Froud's artwork which I love.

Tremors brings me back to when I was 4/5 and believed in them. My grandfather used to tell me if I didn't run fast enough to my cousin's house (they lived next door), a graboid would get me.

Independence Day also reminds me of when I was about 3.

Disney princesses for me too. For me it was Beauty and the Beast. My whole childhood I wanted to be Belle. I think I got my love for book reading from watching that movie so much the vcr tape screwed up lol.

Fern gully was a big one in my family.

My little sister watched Fern Gully about 8976 times in a row.  I don't think I could ever watch it again.

For me, 'The Last Starfighter' brings back a flood of remembering what it was like to be a carefree 80s kid.

Ghostbusters, I remember when there was the whole craze before Turtles became a thing... Now I just feel super nostalgic when I think of the first time my dad brought it home on VHS to watch... I was far too young to really get most of it and I remember complaining when I first saw Bill Murray that he didn't 'look like Peter' (I watched the cartoon Real Ghostbusters before the film, which was why it was so exciting for me back then) but fun stuff, all the same.
Also to clarify... I like Bill Murray in Ghostbusters... Can't blame a kid for not knowing any better! xD

The Ninja Turtles 1990 movie. We had a play area with ninja turtle decals, pjs, you name it! Right up until my grandpa died, one of his favorite memories was walking with my brother and I. Every time we passed a man hole we tried to see if there were ninja turtles down there! My favorite turtle will always be Leonardo! Another one was the Little Mermaid, that was my very first movie going experience, I was about four and my aunt took me. I remember being in my pjs, and being so excited to go see a movie! It was a later in the evening show. That year I even dressed up as Ariel for Halloween!

Goonies and Gremlins are two of my favorites, although Christmas Vacation takes me back and still gets an annual viewing, as does A Christmas Story. I think I can recite every line from both those movies as they play.

Star Wars is another big one for me. Between the theater and drive-ins I think I saw that 17 times. My brother probably saw it twice as many. I was Princess Leia for Halloween three years in a row... she was the only princess who carried a blaster!

The Wizard of Oz! Has been and always will be my favorite movie. I don't want to date myself, but back in the day we'd wait for the networks to air it on tv. My best friend and I would always have sleep overs on this night, watch it and take turns being Dorthy and Glenda the Good Witch.

And, since I am a purest, I do not appreciate any remakes or attempts revamp this classic. Just no.

Another one would be most likely Jim Carrey's The Grinch Who Stole Christmas that movie is my family all the way, Its a family tradition to watch it like 3 times at least around the Christmas season. we know it so well i could with a little help recite it word by word

There are so many that bring me back to a more innocent time. Definitely The NeverEnding Story... The Princess and the Goblin, The Sword and the Stone... The Road to El Dorado always gives me fond memories of watching with my brother. As well as The Yellow Submarine. I'm sure there are a dozen others that just bring me back whenever I hear the name, hear a random quote... I watched a lot of movies as a child (and even now well into adulthood).

Interesting fact: Most people associate Anastasia with Disney, but in fact it was not, Fox produced that movie

But I digress. For me Hurcules the animate Disney movie and Robin Hood, also by Disney.

Watership Down, the movie - not the serial. It was one of the scariest movies I had seen by then. What was I, 12? A depiction of lives in fear and hope and dreams. The scenes were downright terrifying. The brave Hazel, little Fiver the seer, Bigwig the warrior, Blackberry the clever one... Kehaar the crazy featherball. The General, ruthless and powerful and a fighter to the last. And the heroes of the dreamworld; Frith the wise, El-Ahrairah the trickster, and finally the Black Rabbit who awaits us all. I have rarely seen a movie this rich on impressions. It is hard to believe that it's just a story about a handful of rabbits.

Damnit all. Now I need to hunt down the book and read it again. No, I won't see the movie again because the artwork has been left behind by technology's progress. But the tales are timeless.

- “Rabbits (says Mr. Lockley) are like human beings in many ways. One of these is certainly their staunch ability to withstand disaster and to let the stream of their life carry them along, past reaches of terror and loss. They have a certain quality which it would not be accurate to describe as callousness or indifference. It is, rather, a blessedly circumscribed imagination and an intuitive feeling that Life is Now. A foraging wild creature, intent above all upon survival, is as strong as the grass.”

Being 48, there were few films I saw multiple times.  Wizard of Oz was a must see the one time a year they showed in on television.  For theater films, though, the one movie that planted a flag for imagination and dreams was Star Wars.  My family went to see it in the drive-in theater, and it was a triple feature-not three different films, but three showings of Star Wars.  Nothing has kept me breathless through the entire film like that film, let alone three straight viewings.

After that, Empire Strikes Back.  If Star Wars was the flagship of my childhood, Empire was the entrance to my adolescence.  God, did I ever have a crush on Carrie Fisher.

Any Land Before Time movie. Seriously, I had all of them on VHS and I watched them back to back. I had nearly all the songs memorized and if I was in another room, I could instantly recognize the voices of the characters and come running. And even as an adult I still cherish the movies, even if there is like fourteen or fifteen of them now  ;D

I had the first Land Before Time on VHS, together with Jurassic Park. Our country was fresh out of communism, and all this stuff was flooding the market as there was no copyright legislation whatsoever. It was a sort of Lawless East over here. A kind of pirate bay sprawled around markets and big shops, at first with VHS and audio tapes, and later on with compact disks. Fun times.   ::)

The Land Before Time must have been a fresher arrival, but I think Jurassic Park was a copy smuggled in before the revolution, as the tape was really poor quality and there was this voice-over done by someone who is now the most famous film critic in my country or something. She would paste her voice over the whole dialogue in a movie as a clandestine operation, as there were no subtitles and people didn't speak foreign languages. It was actually forbidden to watch foreign movies during the regime, as the communists believed that they were the means through which western imperialists planted the seeds of capitalist indoctrination. I'd go on about how passionately I hate those bastards to this very day, but that's a different topic.  ::) 

Though not technically "movies", I also had the first three episodes of Filmation's He-Man & The Masters of the Universe, done with the same voice-over. I cannot stress what an impact that animated series has had on my childhood. The pervert that I am today owes everything to that show.  ::)
