flash back friday

i grew up in a semi sheltered home, especially when it came to music and movies.  for this reason, my list of favorite movies from my childhood may look a little different than yours.

exhibit a - i dont think i watch dirty dancing until after i graduated high school.  if i did, it was at someone else's house and i did not tell my parents.

so here they are, in no particular order, the movies i loved while you were watching your mtv: 




of course, when i was young i didnt understand why i couldnt watch what everyone else did.  i sometimes felt left out when the kids at school were talking about a movie i had not seen ... i thought it a bit unfair.  well now, they should feel left out.  i seriously want to go watch every single one of these movies right now.

ps - thanks mom and dad!  memories of watching these movies with you guys makes my heart smile!


  1. gremlins scared me. and this is the second blog i've read today that mentioned newsies. i probably should go watch it.

  2. I remember watching Nightmare on Elm Street at Jaime Killette's house in the 3rd grade. Scared the CRAP out of me. I had nightmares for weeks and my parents were so po'd.

  3. Now you have got me singing a whole bunch of songs in my head all at one time! Love these movies too. :0)
    And also didn't truly appreciate these until I got older. I remember seeing The Excorcist (sp?) when I was 21 and I didn't tell mom I was going to see that even then! Ah, memories. I might have to look at one of these this weekend!
