I will always remember "Hook" and remember how I felt about Robin Williams Character.
<> He's sincere in his desire to be a good father, but he keeps screwing up and being busy with work. He just cant find the right perspective. He has literally forgotten what its like (to be a kid).
<> He goes to Never Never Land, and though he "wants to", he still cannot remember how to be a kid.
<> Finally, he remembers how to be a kid... and is able to make everything up to his kids by saving them with his new "kid abilities" in never never land
x 1,000,000 ... I wonder if my analysis says anything about me? The fact that I remember this so strongly even though I havent seen this movie in about 5 years, and before that probably 10 years.... :invites someone to guess:
EDIT: okay to make this less serious...
2. The Brave Little Toaster
These two movies were my most watched according to my parents. I think there's an element of Ni transcendental thought going on in these movies. They are both filled of inanimate objects taking on a life of their own. In fantasia, a mop is not a mop, but an instrument of "ordered" orchestra music. In TBLT, a toaster is not merely an appliance, but an archetypical character! Its seeing objects as more than they are. Sure, every kids movie takes liberties with personification, but these movies took it to an extreme!!!
The Last Starfighter (I'm actually watching that right now)
Who's That Girl (an 80's movie starring Madonna that was loosely based on Bringing Up Baby with Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant)
The Boy Who Could Fly
The Little Mermaid
Harry and the Hendersons
The Flight of the Navigator
Edit: I just realized that all but two of these movies involve real world people being thrown into fantasy situations. I guess that's why I'm always dreaming up crazy scenarios... I watched these movies too much growing up :P

As a child I had a really weird obsession with Dirty Dancing. I was only like 4 or 5 but I watched it so often that my mom hid it from me so I would watch something else. I was really into movies like The Princess Bride and Willow too though. I remember watching the mini-series The Tenth Kingdom an awful lot. The Last Unicorn was a big one for me, I adored that movie. The Lord of the Rings were and still are way up there for me. I could watch them over and over and never get tired of them.
