It is almost that time of year again when they star showing children's films on telly all day. But what is your fave "on every Christmas suitable for all the family" film?

Is it Willow? Labyrinth? 101 Dalmatians? Home Alone?


Mine has to be "The Dark Crystal", I watched that so many times when I was a kid. I have just bought myself the "collectors edition" from Amazon and I must say it is still worth watching if only for the detail in the sets; it is amazing, today's CGI movies look rubbish in comparison.

Thing about Labyrinth is that Bowie really freaks me out. I think it is the infeasibly tight trousers he wares in it.

In no particular order, Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, Nightmare Before Christmas, and Robin Hood, are the ones that come to mind.

EDIT: Also, Muppet Treasure Island. I'm gonna go home and either find my VHS, or just download the damn thing.

I wish I had that on DVD ;_;

Um... The Lion King?

1. Finding Nemo(tie)
1. The Lion King(tie)
1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles(tie)
2. Toy Story
3. Pinocchio
4. Aladdin
5. Toy Story 2
6. Monster's, Inc.

That's are my favs, I think... might have skipped over something.

Nightmare Before Christmas, Home Alone, The Grinch. Those are the only few I'd see more than once and I see Home Alone every Christmas Eve. :)

Home Alone 2 was way better than Home Alone 1 IMO. I've never even bothered with the 3rd or 4th one.

The Johnny Depp version was called Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, just like the book.

As far as I'm concerned, the Gene Wilder version is superior. Depp version is good for laughs, though.

I used to like mostly all of the disney movies when I was little. Fantasia still stands out the most though.

Oh yeah Disney movies...how could I forget.
I still think The Lion King is one of the best movies ever made :)

Ooohhh... The Neverending Story was quite good.

Never cared to bother with the sequels though.

Wilder.

I mean, the new one is cool and all. Nice music, squirrels, very colorful, deep message. But the old school one. YOU CAN'T BEAT THE OOMPA LOOMPAS FROM THAT ERA. And the creepy boatride was cool too.

I've got to admit- the Oompa Loompas and their singing is what makes me want to watch that movie every time it comes on TV. Nothing beats those guys.

I hated the Oompa Loompas in the original.

Really? I prefered them over the one's in Johnny Depp's verison.

I also like the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Since I'd consider them family movies.

DarthAve

Citizen Kane is really good. Though I'm probab;y the only person I know of who can actually sit through a showing.:)
That made compleatly no sence to the fact I was pointing out. Ohioans are stupid, and want lamps that look like sexy legs.

As sound as that logic is, you're a moron.

I haven't seen the new one, but the Oompa Loompas freaked me out in the original.

*shudders*

And I love the PoC movies!

I wish I could find a copy of the California Raisins Christmas Special. I haven't seen that since I was like 4. And Darth_Ave, there is nothing wrong with those of us Ohioans that want Leg Lamps for Christmas. :P
