I need some movies you loved as a kid to add to my netflix. Saturday night is movie night for the kids (SIX & FOUR) and they have got hooked on classic stuff.

It all started with Flight of the Navigator. Since then,

Indiana Jones, Goonies, Pee Wee, Explorers, Sandlot, Star Wars...

I need some more. They are very demanding.

E.T. is one of my favorites. Kids cried in the theater every time.

Willie Wonka promotes honesty, a rare trait in our culture nowadays.

Princess Bride shows that a good old story always beats out computer gadget.

I would add The Wizard of Oz.

Absolutely. I saw it when it first came out, when I was 5, and was enthralled with it. I still love it and watch it regularly.

I also saw "Silent Running" when I was 6, it had a huge impact on me. Not exactly happy-happy, joy-joy, but neat special effects and little robots.

You know, this thread reminds me of a funny story. My 90-year old grandma was always really hard to buy Christmas presents for. You know, she had really everything she needed on a daily basis, and you can only buy so many bird feeders or quilts before enough is enough. So one year, I thought I'd buy her a movie -among other small gifties. She loved animals, so for some reason I thought "Ace Ventura Pet Detective" might be good. So I buy it, and Christmas night, we're visiting Grandma and put it on TV. I forgot about the scene where he's talking with his ass...and other really rude stuff.

Grandma thought it was really funny and said she hadn't laughed that hard in a long time.

I didn't like any of those as a child. Crap, except for the Grinch. Not a fan, at all, of Disney.

My wife has them all and then some. She can't figure out why I don't leave the man cave to often to watch movies with her.

Also, Star Trek II and III are probably a little violent and grotesque...and way too serious for kids that age.

But Star Trek IV might really hit the spot. Save the whales!

It's actually a pretty good movie in retrospect (made by the Pixar people before Pixar existed), but young kids really shouldn't watch it. The themes are too dark and there are so many scenes like this one.

At 4 and 6, you get to define what a good movie is. They will grow to love whatever movies you tell them are good.

So don't crank out kids that love crappy movies. It will be all your fault, heh.

Raiders at that age? You're the parent. Your call.

Kids will acclimate to anything, but for my money, it's a good age for the willie wonkas, the apple dumpling gangs, the old disney stuff.

When they're a couple of years older "The Dark Crystal" might be a good one (dark Jim Henson movie).

Warning though... It stars Al. Davis.

Also, if they like fantasy movies, "Krull" was pretty kick ass.

Savannah Smiles Reviews
Rating: PG · Run time: 1 hrs 47 min · Year: 1982
Synopsis: Savannah Smiles is a sweet little film that proved a surprising hit on the Saturday matinee circuit… Read full synopsis

Synopsis: Savannah Smiles is a sweet little film that proved a surprising hit on the Saturday matinee circuit. Mark Miller and Donovan Scott play a pair of good-natured escaped convicts who cross the path of precocious runaway Bridgette Andersen. When Andersen explains that she's hit the road because her wealthy parents neglect her, Miller and Scott decide to hold the kid for a huge ransom. You and I both know that the crooks will turn soft before the end, and return Andersen to her folks without a dollar changing hands, but even predicting the film's outcome cannot diminish its charm. Star Mark Miller, who also scripted Savannah Smiles, is the father of actress Penelope Ann Miller

Any body else remember this movie? A sweet movie funny & sad iirc.

Any of the old Disney films with Kurt Russell: The Computer Who Wore Tennis Shoes, The World's Strongest Man, etc.

I used to try old disney stuff, and was real excited about it at the time. Sword in the stone, alladin, jungle book, etc. They were not interested for some reason. 80s classics really catch their attention though... Im not forcing anything on them. Superman, indy (they loved it), goonies, ghostbusters, etc. They sit glued to these. All of these are rated PG, and im sitting there right with them.

Ha. Oh my. So funny. So unique. Why hadn't anyone else thought of calling a guy who likes musicals gay? You're so inventive.

Some people have a bit of culture, enjoy good films, appreciate good music and fine arts. It just so happens Time recently named Singin' in the Rain as having one of the top 10 soundtracks of all time. The Sound of Music is a best picture Oscar winner. These are truly remarkable, enjoyable films.

I feel sad for you that you'll let the stereotype (ignorant as it is) of men who like musicals determine what you can enjoy. You're a sad, ignorant ****. No go watch Cobra and leave me alone.

Martin Scorsese loves Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. I haven't seen it, but I would. Singing in the Rain is classic. Not sure that a 4-6 year old would like it.

Jenson, blaise, you're probably correct. I doubt kids that young would enjoy it much. They might, however, enjoy The Sound of Music or Oliver!, especially since both of those films prominently feature children.

If you're open to musicals, I highly recommend Seven Brides. Very funny, very good. I've never seen it on stage, though.
