    Following the war film thread..... but a different tack. My little girl, soon to be 4, is just about capable of enjoying a 90 minute film or cartoon. She recently enjoyed Robots (suprisingly), The Incredibles, and the original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

    My favourites when I was very young (ie under 7 or 8 - by then Star Wars had come along!) were:

    Pete's Dragon (which I fear is really very bad!)
    Herbie films
    Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (scary child-catcher!)

    What other films do you remember liking, which I might look out for???

    Or which modern films are really good??

    Pete's Dragon was cracking. Mary Poppins was tremendous. It's the Master (step in time) etc.

    Also seem to rememeber The Gnome Mobile was well received in our house.

    Biggest disappointment when young was the Pink Panther films, due to the complete absence of the cartoon pink panther after the credits went up.

    I thought films were pretty lame when I was a kid (4 going on 40) and only really appreciated them when I turned 13/14. Star Wars (obviously) and Blazing Saddles spring to mind but they're not kiddies films per se. In retrospect, I went to see Lawrence of Arabia when I was 8 (rainy holiday in Cornwall) and loved it. I was probably a bit old before my time.

    Now though, the kids are spoilt for choice. Robots is deemed a bit babyish by my boys (4 & 7) and they prefer:-

    The Incredibles
    Digimon Movie (even though it's yonks old)
    Herbie films (old and new - I prefer the new; wonder why?)
    Toy Story I & II
    Spiderman ( I'll watch just for Kirsten)

    And we all loved watching Transformers on the big screen recently.

    When I was a young nipper snapper...I was just amazed at Mary Poppins...I thought it was stupendous. xx(
     
  5. Finding Nemo (sadly can pretty much recite the whole script)

    Not from when I was a kid obviously but I think it's just great. I've got a small model of Dory zip tied to the handlebars of my tourer.

    Just keep swimming, just keep swimming...

    Good call, the amount of expression they got into that penguin with just a pair of blinking eyes! Pure evil

    Yeah. The best bits are the race on the train at the end, and the part where the penguin takes the glove off his head and Wallace realises who he really is.
