What movies did you used to love as kid? The ones you would watch over and over again...
Let's see, I grew up on some odd movies as a kid:
The Legend Of Hell House. The original, with Roddy McDowall, rather than that high-budget, B-movie knockoff. One of the best of the supernatural horror films of the '70s. Yes, I was pretty young when I saw it, too.
The Omen. Creepy as hell, I thought, in good measure because of the background score.
Patton. This is one of those movies that no matter how many times I've seen it, and no matter how tired I am nor what time it is at night, I'll still watch it to the end if I happen to channel surf into it. George C. Scott is amazing.
Midway. Again, if I hit it while channel surfing, I'm doomed to spend the next three hours of my life watching TV.
Oh, the heck with it... might as well just lump 'em all together: The Dirty Dozen, The Great Escape, Kelly's Heroes, Tora Tora Tora, Das Boot, Destination: Tokyo... all the great war epics. I still get the theme to Red Ball Express stuck in my head every so often.
Some other titles at random: The Night Stalker, Dirty Harry, Death Wish, Our Man Flint, It's A Wonderful Life, Breakfast At Tiffany's, Cool Hand Luke, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, The Magnificent Seven, Westworld, The Andromeda Strain.
Young Frankenstein. Probably the best of the best. If I was on a deserted island and could have only one Mel Brooks film to get me by, this'd be the one.
Cat Ballou. You have to pity Jane Fonda for having to play the straight man on this one, but dear gods - Lee Marvin is hilarious. As is his horse. This one's a must-see for Nat King Cole fans, because it's his last film. I think this film was my introduction to metafiction.
To Sir With Love. This was my first Sidney Poitier film, and it certainly wasn't my last. Wow. It's a shame we don't have as many actors of that calliber nowadays. The man practically defines "screen presence".
Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. Again, the Gene Wilder version, not the sad Tim Burton clone. The scenes: a) in the chocolate gondola, and b) of Charlie being confronted by Wonka in his office after the tour... those are the sorts of things more kids should see.
The Poseidon Adventure. One of the best disaster movies of the 70's, I think, and certainly my favorite. This was the first Gene Hackman role I remember.
...and finally, the sort of movie I think the OP was looking for:
Krull. Yes, I know it's a bad film. Yes, I know Ynyr's name is unpronounceable, I know that Corwin smiles too much, and I know that Liam Neeson probably doesn't acknowledge making this film. But I really like this film. Always have. No reason. It's a terrible piece of cheezeball shlock that I really did enjoy enough to buy the DVD. Besides, when Ergo finally gets it right, you just can't help cheer.
