My favorite movies as a kid were The Karate Kid, The Mighty Ducks, Terminator 2, Chariots of Fire, Star Wars, Back to the Future, and D.A.R.Y.L. I'm not sure if any of those count as children's movies, but I still like them.

Watership Down, The Last Unicorn, Flight of Dragons. They're just serious/dark enough that they never seem entirely stupid in retrospect, and they have awesome soundtracks. Lots of films seem to have utterly forgettable soundtracks for some reason.

I know a lot of people saw it as children, but I don't think it was actually a "children's movie".

I've only seen the 70's version with Jenny Agutter but absolutely loved it.

One of my favourite ones would be The Ring of Bright Water with the duo Travers & McKenna ( Born Free).

It is set in the deep Scottish countryside and is a beautiful story about an Otter and a man.

Which is essential viewing or reading for people to get the following Indian Restaurant joke ..

Diner "Waiter, what is the difference between the orinary dal and the tarka dal?"

Waiter "The tarka dal is like the ordinary dal but 'otter Sir"

Anyways,

Winnie the Pooh (Blustery Day, Tigger) is about the only childhood film I think I would still enjoy now that I'm an adult.

I thought I was the only person in the world who knew about this film...I love it! I was first introduced to the story via Reader's Digest.
