No polls since they're awful and too limiting.

It's WAY hard to pick between some of my favorites here, but I'm gonna have to just go with Cameron from a previous thread and say "The Goonies". It's just perfect in every way.

Honorable mentions go to "Flight of the Navigator" and "Explorers".

Oh man, I freaking loved Flight of the Navigator. Such a fun movie. I used to watch that and The Last Starfighter back-to-back during the summer.

Anyone who doesn't say The Great Muppet Caper is awful and wrong.

Those movies are damn good though. Return to Oz is another great one.

This thread would have been better with a poll. I like filling out polls and seeing the results.

Return to Oz is creepy as shit. I only made it part way through as a child. Those jokers were with the wheels for hands and feet were too creepy for me to handle.

The answer is obviously Ghostbusters Image

...or Goonies

...or Princess Bride

...or Who Framed Roger Rabbit

I don't know if Ghostbusters or Princess Bride could be considered "kid" movies, but Roger Rabbit and Goonies were pretty good. Also, anyone ever see "The Monster Squad"?

I would say my favorite movies from childhood (The 80's-early 90's) are:

ERNEST GOES TO CAMP
HOWARD THE DUCK
WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT?
THE GOONIES
TERMINATOR 2

So, Ghostbusters may not be considered a "kids" movie (although everyone watched it as a kid, right?) but in what way is Princess Bride not made for kids?

House 1 for sure! House 2 was goofy as shit but still better than 90% of today's garbage CGI crap-fests....

Well I'd say a lot of the dialogue in Princess Bride could be equally appreciated by an adult audience. I personally would consider 'Stand by Me' as one of the best kids movie of the 80's even though it was R rated. I saw it as a kid however and it was definitely relateable to a young audience.

Fuckin' Monster Squad. Just barely edges out The Goonies for me.


Who likes role-playing games? Me. Way too goddamn much.

Thank you! Love for the Labyrinth! Also Dark Crystal, even though it's fucked up. And Goonies for sure.

The Goonies was the first movie that came to mind. I saw The Wizard on tv when I was younger and actually really liked it at the time, wouldn't put it up near The Goonies but it came to mind. I know it isn't what we are talking about, but The Land Before Time was good shit as a really young kid.

Would Stand By Me count? I really liked that movie but I'm not sure it quite fits here.
