I cannot tell you how many times I watched this movie as a kid. I cannot remember a time where I DIDN'T know about this film. I remember watching it when I was about five, but I probably watched it before then. Looking back, it probably wasn't the best parenting move but I didn't get it all until I was about 10, so that doesn't matter much.

Either way, I adored this movie as a kid and I only love it more now that I get it all.

Oh, the memories. I remember my best friend and I were in 4th grade and we would hit our heads with books like the chanting monks, and we learned all the words to the Brave Sir Robin song and sang it at school. I had a black knight key chain and got in trouble when I ripped off his limb in class and threw it.

Okay, I was obsessed with Pokemon, like every other 6 year old in the late 90s. It was great, and this movie had violence AND my favorite Pokemon, Mewtwo. Let's just say that I thought it was the most badass movie in existence as a kid.

My family has a cabin (*cough* crappy trailer, actually) in Idaho, and we don't get cable there. We had a huge box of VHS's that we watched every time we went up there instead of TV (because who wants to go outside anyway?) and this was always the first we'd watch.

Every single time we went to our "cabin", we watched Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The pine trees and lake, the boating, and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Airplane! (1980)
Still one of my favorite movies, it's one of the few movies that I understood in its entirety as a kid and loved just as much as I do today. It was great, and it still is. Luckily it was one of my parents favorites too, so we made sure to watch it at least twice a year.

Animal House (1978)
Whenever this movie was on TV, my dad had to turn it on. It was like a reflex. When it wasn't on TV, we'd pop in the VHS on a late weekend night and watch it. I remember showing my grandma the zit scene by putting food in my mouth and "popping". She loved it, but she would've crucified my mom if she knew she let me watch Animal House.

It was Pokemon, and it had Mewtwo, and I thought it was cool how he mercilessly killed innocent people at the beginning. I ate this stuff up.

I don't think I got the cum in the hair joke until I was about 12, but it was a funny movie nonetheless. (I remember watching it when I was about 7 and wondering why he was "flipping his weiner around before the went on a date".) This was another movie in the VHS box up at our place in Idaho, and I don't think we ever forgot to watch it.

Spaceballs (1987)
I understood all of the movie and I have to say, I laughed my ass off at it and I still do. It's stupid, but I had so much fun with this movie. My brother and I still crack up at Pizza the Hut and we helped name our friend's dog "Yogurt".

I love Wallace and Gromit. We had three VHS's: In the Wrong Trousers, A Grand Day Out and A Close Shave. We watched Wrong Trousers and Grand Day millions of times, but I couldn't bear to watch A Close Shave more than a few times because it terrified me. (If I'm being honest, it stills freaks me out.)

Flubber (1997)
Oh God, I don't think I EVER liked this movie. For some reason my dad was obsessed with it, and whenever we brought out the old box of VHS's at the Idaho trailer, he'd suggest it. I don't really think we ever humored him enough to watch it with him more than a couple times.

Hahaha, I remember in 4th grade my friend and I (after we were done singing Brave Sir Robin) would sing "Kyle's mom's a bitch, she's a big fat bitch, she's the biggest bitch in the whole wide world!" around the school playground. We would watch scenes on repeat for hours, I kid you not.

We always watched this movie around the holidays, probably because it reminds us of our relatives. The rich snobs (my dad's family), the clinically insane aunt (which I have five of), the gay brother (my brother)... I have a major soft spot for this film, and I still watch it every time Christmas comes around.

Little Nicky (2000)
Ugh, this movie is SO BAD, and I know it's bad, but we watched it so much, sort of laughing in spite of ourselves. It's a guilty pleasure, I guess. I really hate admitting that.

Caddyshack (1980)
My dad was obsessed with golf and when he wasn't trying to get us to golf with him, we had to watch Caddyshack with him. My dad thought the dancing gopher was the funniest thing ever filmed and would call me out of my room to watch.

When I was in Pre-school and I hot chicken-pox for the second time (weird, I know), I got fixated on this film. I watched it three times a day, everyday, for about six months. She loved that it kept me quiet, but then I would force her to skip to the music.

We were out shopping and that exact scene was playing on the TVs in the electronics section. "Skip, mommy, skip!" I started to cry, so my mom began to skip around the store. In public. I admit, I haven't seen the movie since.
Another movie that was constantly on TV. I don't actually remember watching this on tape, it was just on TV all the time. It was watching movies like these as a kid that really developed my tastes in comedy films as I grew older.

Aliens (1986)
Weirdly enough, this movie didn't freak me out as a kid, and I watched it recently and felt a little sick. I had a strong gut as a kid, because I remembered loving this. It was pretty badass, and it still is.

I had a love-hate relationship with this movie as a kid, and for stupid reasons. My dad bought a subwoofer for our TV downstairs, right below my room on the ground floor. I could hear the music blaring and I wouldn't be able to go to sleep.

I kid you not, my dad would watch this about once a week because it was always on TV. The noise was always unbearable at the mall chase scene, and I would go downstairs to complain. I would watch a little, then go to bed, so I only really saw the middle of the film as a kid. I finally watched it all last year and I loved it.

I remember this movie always being on and I always watched it, but when I watched it for the first time in a few years I had completely forgotten everything. I think that's because everything went completely over my head at the time. But now it's one of my favorites.

The Mummy (1999)
God, I have no idea why, but this was one of my favorites as a kid. I honestly don't know why, and I don't think I knew then. It's not bad, but I remember always watching it and getting REALLY into it, which is weird because I had the attention span of a rodent.

I hated watching this movie because EVERY SINGLE TIME, without fail, my mom would bawl at the ending. I think it made me judge the film unfairly because I haven't watched it since.

Cast Away (2000)
This was one of my brother's favorite movies as a kid, so I always ended up watching it with him. I liked it, but my brother was so obsessed with it...

Stripes (1981)
I have to admit, I don't remember much from this movie. All I know is that my family watched it a lot.

The Shining (1980)
This was the first scary movie I saw. I think I was about 10. Other than The Exorcist, this is honestly the only horror film I've really seen.

Rat Race (2001)
I don't know why we watched this movie so much, I don't think I ever really liked it.
BRODO's rating:

Admittedly, I did not watch many "age-appropriate" movies as a kid, so this list might be a tad different from other childhood lists... Either way, this is a list of movies that defined my childhood from the time I was able to crawl to about the age of 10.
