Tell me about 'em.
It's a whole lot of Disney/Pixar for me, with a side order of solo Disney. I loved the first two Toy Story films, Bug's Life was amazing, and I liked Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast a lot too (Forte is scary). I also still watch Emperor's New Groove all the time, and I still laugh.
Possibly my favorite, though, is James and the Giant Peach. That movie has everything: humor, charm, neat visual effects, scary monsters (the mechanical shark is even scarier than Forte), evil aunts who get their comeuppance, great music, and wonderful characters. I still have the biggest crush on Miss Spider.
I love this song.

Well you've already got two of them right there.
Lets see, I loved StarWars, and still do today, and then Space Jam was awesome...
Small Soldiers was awesome too.
And then anything put out by Pixar at the time pretty much, a Bugs Life, Toy Story, et cetera...
And then I'm not sure it counts, but Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles was one of my favorite Cartoons as a kid.
And of course all the classic Disney Movies, like Robin Hood, and Peter Pan.
Goldeneye 007. You know how some little kids just have one movie that they watch habitually, over and over again? Yeah, Goldeneye was mine. The film and the game pretty much defined my life from 1st to 3rd grade.
And Starship Troopers, but the gore was so bad I lost my shit the first time I saw it. It's weird how we become desensitized, now when I see that movie I just laugh.
Now that I think about, my exposure to media was pretty uncensored growing up. Where the hell were my parents?
Tron was captivating for me. I'm not sure why, considering how young I was I didn't get any of the tech jokes like I do now. The special effects weren't all that great by mid-nineties standards either. It just had some quality I liked. And lightcycles.
Star Wars was also one of my favorite series, even though I didn't care for much of it besides the action segments. I still ended up learning an awful lot about the mythos anyway. It was also the source of my dream of being a fighter jet pilot, before my poor vision ruled that out for me.
I ended up watching a bunch of films my dad liked, especially the 007 series. Again, I was a simple-minded boy, so I just liked the gadgets and Bond's spy exploits.
Disney movies are a given, and Pixar was excellent.
End of Line.
Jurassic Park, Night of the Living Dead, Return of the Living Dead (1-3), Star Wars (4-6), Back to the Future (1-3), Airplane!, Space Balls... The list goes on and down a very dark, very bloody path.

That pretty much describes my relationship with the second Ninja Turtles movie. I watched that thing so many times I had practically every line memorized. Knowadays I realize the first movie is probably better, darker, more dramatic and also very faithful to the original comics, but back in the day I though the Secret of the Ooze was da bomb.
Everyone dies. It is the final and only lasting Justice - Boba Fett
Ooooooooooh yeeeeeeaaaaaaah! I forgot about the Ninja Turtles movies. I loved the first two, and could easily live without the the third.
X-Ray Scope Acquired!
Miyazaki's movie, Kiki's Delivery Service!!!
I'll protect you by all means, even if it cost me another trip to Heaven...
Awesome topic Troid. Here's a few of my favorites.
The original Star Wars Trilogy
Transformers the Movie (the cartoon one that had Rodimus Prime and Unicron)

OH MAH GAWD TRON. Can't believe I forgot it! Amazing movie, one of my favorites!
For me, the movie I would watch excessively, no matter what, was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, with Gene Wilder.
Every time we'd go to the library when I was a kid, I'd beg my mom to rent that movie.
Just seeing the opening candy spread makes my nostalgia capacitors go into overload.
Holy crap, I had that on VHS and would watch it all the time, I loved that movie.
I'm no movie person, but, as a kid, I liked:
The Emperor's New Groove (One of the best damned movies. Ever).
The Matrix Trilogy (Reloaded is my favorite)
Star Wars Episodes 4-6
Also, maybe A Goofy Movie, Tarzan, Hercules, and/or Mulan.
There's more, I'm sure, but I don't remember them right now and I doubt I'll ever get back to this list.
Also, two clips that I really love:
The fight with Smith in the park in Reloaded:
One of the only musical scenes that isn't a parody that I'll ever love:
"Work is for people who can't play video games." - Jillian Wiebe, "The King of Kong"
The majority of movies I watched were Disney movies and the 'classics' --Bambi, Dumbo, Cinderella --ect.
But some of my favorite Disney movies I watched as a kid were:
* 101 Dalmatians
* Sound of Music
* Mary Poppins
* Loin King
* Beauty and the Beast
* An American Tail
Other movies I watched were:
* The original Star Wars Trilogy
* Jurassic Park Trilogy
* All dogs go to Heaven
* Angles in the Outfield
* Willy Wonka and Chocolate Factory (original)
* Milo and Otis
* Kiki's Delivery Service (Didn't know it was anime during the time.)
* Free Willy
* Space Jam
* Who framed Roger Rabbit
* Men in Black
* Black Beauty
* The Indian in the Cupboard
* A Little Princess
Some of us are dating ourselves with our prefered titles.
When I was a kid, there were five kinds of movies:
1) Star Wars
2) Indiana Jones
4) Cheesy musicals
5) Whatever weird borderline B-flick my dad would watch on the WB on Saturdays
Apparently I had a huge thing for Beauty and the Beast, I guess I watched it like twelve times in a week once? I must've blocked it out, the movie I remember absolutely loving as a kid was Return of the Jedi. It had Boba Fett, Vader, and the Emperor, my three favorites. Yeah, screw Luke, I liked the bad guys.
