Family Films, eh... Difficult to remember.. But since I am not grown up yet, here are some that I really like (and still watch on a regular basis):

The Dark Crystal (come on Power of the Dark Crystal, please don't let me down!)
(I know I have a thing for Puppet Movies)

Spirited Away (and anything else by Hayao Miyazaki!)
Shrek 1+2 (of course)

"Where is the Master?"
"He's dead"
"Could be anywhere, then."

Ah...!!!Can't get away from you,can't i...?Now i've got that song in my head...ice ice baby...

For me it's still"Tom&Jerry"i don't ever think i will outgrow out of it...I love it to death,our whole family will gather around wether they're sulking or happy about something...That always pulled us back together...

I also grew up around a lot of french cartoons&other foreign languages like Ulysses 31,Tom Sayer,Bouba(the little bear),a thousand&1 night...One of these days i'm thinking of buying and doing a collection for my nephews&nieces and my children to come...

Thank You,Rraven,You took me back to a great childhood...

Oh, just remembered... Here some stuff I grew up with - it's all German stuff.
Made by the German Version of Jim Henson we get classic like:

"Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotiv Fuehrer"
"Urmel auf dem Eis"

Inspired stuff, I still remember those Dwarves hanging up fried eggs on a washing line

Ah, sweet memories of innocence...

Oh, just remembered something else... Anybody ever seen something called 'The Moomins'? Dark, twisted tales featuring Hippo-like creatures? It used to scare the hell out of me as a kid, and I still found it creepy when I saw as an adult...
I think it's Swedish or Norwegian...

Goonies was our #1 favourite. I think we saw it about 13 times. "Ruth? Baby?"

There was also:
Stand By Me
Lost Boys
Amadeus (it was on TV a lot)
A Christmas Carol (the one with George C. Scott)
Back to the Future

hmm...there must be more...

Lost Boys?? Good God woman! What kind of childhood did you have??!?!?!

ET was one I liked, and Star Wars....Was married with children before I got out of puberty...so I am not really sure ;)

My kids loved Ghostbusters and every movie Disney made, but I think the most played in my household was Aladin and Beauty and the Beast. :)

Loved Labyrith with David Bowie.

There was a Disney one Escape to Witch Mountain which was one of the first movies saw at the flicks.

ET depresses me as does anything where animals die so l refuse to watch them.

Loved Grease also.

Also really loved the musicals The King & l (Yuel Brenner) and Annie (The sun'll come out tomorrow......... Had a client recently called Miss Hannigan and had to stop my self from saying "We Love you Miss Hannigan!!!) sorry was off on one there!!
