Films I Grew Up Watching by Amy
In no particular order~~~ These are some of the films (and shorts) I remember watching when I was a kid… younger than 10years old. A few of these I’ve watched and re-watched until now. Even though some of these picks are not what you would call “kid films” like Enter the Dragon, but like I’ve said… I was a bizarre little kid. I knew (and still know) all the lines in Spanish by heart for the “kick me” scene. Some shorts are here on the database, and some others haven’t showed up yet. Many shorts from the Looney Tunes, and Disney’s Silly Symphonies. As well as Michael Jackson’s Thriller… though it is a music video/short film… how about Smooth… Read more

I am pretty sure my age doesn’t show anywhere on my profile, but I’m certain you can tell from some of the picks in the list… considering I saw all of these when I was younger than 10. Obviously, some of those scared the crap out of me like The Fly, The Thing and Poltergeist~~~

I was scared of having anything blob-like to it because of The Thing, and the memory still remains considering I haven’t re-watched since then. And despite all these years, I still get a little nervous with static.

I also remember watching Edward Scissorhands and always be fascinated with his hands, it was such a magical story. I used to pretend I had scissorhands too (without using real scissors of course) xD. Being a little kid I always wondered what Kathy Baker’s character was doing to Edward Scissorhands. xD and was worried whether my parents would come back from work early and catch me watching the film during that scene. LOL

Of course, I fully support the comeback of puppets in films xD
