Classic, Must See Movies

I’m talking movies today so I’m sure you think I’m going to discuss the Golden Globes or the Oscars.

Unless we’re talking fashion it will be hard for me to discuss any of the nominated movies this year because I have seen exactly zero of them.

My 10 year old? He’s seen Lincoln twice.

Me? None.

Today I’m going to talk to you about what I deem “Classic Movies.”

Casablanca? Gone with the Wind? Breakfast at Tiffany’s?

No. No. and No.

These might be official classic movies but not my classic movies.

My classic movies are ones my husband and I are having fun introducing to the kids. Movies we remember enjoying when we were younger. The TRUE classic movies. At least to me.

I’m talking about Mary Poppins, Annie, Star Wars, The Sound of Music, Home Alone, Ghost Busters, Honey I Shrunk the Kids, E.T., and Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.


Also on the list are The Parent Trap, Goonies, Jumanji, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Mrs. Doubtfire, The Karate Kid, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Mighty Ducks, Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, and Uncle Buck.


There are several more movies on the list but for now I would like your help.

Soon I’m going to be sharing my Classic Movie list as a printable but I’d like to get your opinion…

What Are Your Favorite Classic Movies?

I’m sure there are many movies I haven’t thought of so go ahead and share. After all, it’s for my kids 🙂

  1. Neal: Del… Why did you kiss my ear?
    Del: Why are you holding my hand?
    Neal: [frowns] Where’s your other hand?
    Del: Between two pillows…
    Neal: Those aren’t pillows!

  2. The Princess Bride. We watched it over Christmas break with our kids (7, 5, 3) and they LOVED it. Also really enjoyed the Errol Flynn “Robin Hood.”

  3. Pollyanna! It is a Disney classic and was one of my favorite movies to watch with my mom and sister (A mommy/daughter moment for you?). Also any of those type of Disney classics- Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Apple Dumpblin Gang, Bedknobs and Boomsticks, etc.

  4. I have been thinking and thinking as I could swear you have listed them all! I remember all of these and am stealing the list to start showing my kids 🙂 I do remember The Never Ending Story and Princess Bride we great as well!
