Default Your Childhood Favorites

Basically, what movies were heavily influential to you as a child? I don't mean just general good movies, I mean films - good or bad - that are legitimately engrained in your head, that have that nostalgia factor that movies you've seen later in life can never really recapture.

In no particular order:

Batman 1989 probably hits me with more nostalgia than any other film. I think I was around 9 when I first saw it on VHS.

Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi

Mask of the Phantasm I was able to see with my Dad while it was briefly in theatres. Watched it all the time when it came out on VHS

The Great Mouse Detective

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Jurassic Park (I was big into dinosaurs as a kid. Saw this when I was about 10 or 11 and it blew my mind)

The Wizard of Oz
Batman
101 Dalmatians
The Jungle Book
Robin Hood
Pinnochio
Aladdin
Beauty and the Beast
Snow White
The Rescuers Down Under

D2: The Mighty Ducks
Batman Forever
Star Wars
The Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi
Singin' in the Rain
Spaceballs
Young Frankenstein

Star Wars: Episode I...which is probably the last movie I could qualify as being nostalgic for me.

There's probably more, but that's all I can think of for now.

Spielberg's Hook was one of the major ones, if not the biggest. It's the first movie I remember seeing and is a nostalgic representation of my childhood.

The Goonies is still the greatest film ever made. I can't believe how many people I had to introduce that movie to as both a teenager and an adult. I don't understand how anyone had a childhood without that movie.

I count myself very lucky to have been a child of the '80's, we were blessed with an amazing period of film making.

I think the film that truly defines my childhood though and defines the reason why I am a film maker today is Superman (1978), watching that as a child made me want to be a film maker. It's scale & awe, just picked me up and swept me along as a four year old.

Clash of the Titans (1981) - the first movie I remember seeing from beginning to the end. I remember watching it without blinking, my 6-or-so mind struggling to handle all the awesomeness. And thus my undying love for all kinds of fantastical (both fantasy and SF) movies was born!

Batman (1989) and Batman Returns

Terminator and Terminator 2

RoboCop and RoboCop 2

Universal Monsters (especially The Creature from Black Lagoon and Frankenstein movies)

Various 50's SF movies (especially Earth vs the Flying Saucers, This Island Earth, Invaders from Mars, Beast from 20000 fathoms, 20 million miles to Earth and The Day the Earth stood still)

Indiana Jones movies
