This is post is part of the Childhood Films Blogathon that I am hosting on Let’s Go To The Movies. Read the announcement post – here.
I have decided to keep it in with my 7 Things feature on the blog and have picked 7 of my favourite childhood films and probably some of my all time top watched films!
Just missed out of my list . . . Sister Act
Haven’t put them in any particular order and probably won’t come as much of a surprise due to the banners I created for the Blogathon to begin with!
Jurassic Park – Review
Now this one just had to be included a no brainer at all, considering it was one of the reasons I decided to put the blogathon together. With Jurassic World coming out I revisited this film and really forgot not only how good it is but how much I loved it. Not just as a child but I still love it now as well, sometimes watching a film like this makes you feel very young again. I think that is something to be celebrated about this film!
Mrs Doubtfire – Review
Who didn’t want Mrs Doubtfire to look after them as a child? It certainly did look like a whole lot of fun. Even if it was a man dressed up as an old woman. Probably so much wrong with that but it worked so well as such a funny film, but with a heart of gold to go alone with it.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie – Review
Now I loved the Power Rangers I guess my list is looking a bit more boy-film heavy, but hey it was the 90s and I was a tomboy so I guess that explains it. Although I did always want to be the Pink Ranger, Kimberly is very kick ass. I also re-watched this film not that long ago thanks to Netflix and while it isn’t the greatest a little part of me still very much enjoyed it with all its familiarity from all those years ago.
Honestly I still cannot resist putting this film on if I see it on Sky Movies, which is a hell of a lot if I am totally honest. Seriously it is always on, but I guess this is a film that probably won’t work with current children. I mean do they even have any idea what a board game is and how to play it? I blame tablets for cheating them of that honour and being able to truly appreciate the magic in this film.
Mary Poppins – Review
Jumping into a chalk drawing, riding a horse from a merry-go-round, medicine that changed colour, flying a kite whilst singing and dancing around. Seriously what is not to love about that, I remember getting to the end of this film and rewinding the VHS and watching it again. Yes I still love this one too ❤
The Sound of Music – Review
Oh yes another Julie Andrews addition in my list, you know I am a musicals lover so couldn’t just have one in this list. I am always very shocked when people say they have never seen this one, as it was another I watched endlessly as a child and loved every single second of it. I think its a rare film that you can like for different reasons at different ages.
Mrs ‘Arris Goes to Paris – Review
Now this is a very special childhood film as I watched it was my Nanna and was very much imprinted in my head. It was probably around the start of this blog that I managed to find what the film was called and that it starred Angela Lansbury. It was one of those I could remember the story but could not remember any of the actors, so certainly one of my childhood favourites.
I think its save to say that Robin Williams and Julie Andrews played a big part in my childhood films!
