    I have this idea for the next X-teme Games Gold Medal Event--Bear Tickling. Its like Bull riding but more X-treme! You are timed on how long you can tickle a bear before he attacks you.

    All of them?

    I saw Ghostbusters seven times in 1984. In fact, I went to the movies so often that summer that I somehow saw Breakin' twice.

    More than I can count, probably. I know I saw: Ghost; Honey, I Shrunk The Kids; All Dogs Go To Heaven; Big Top Pee Wee; Young Einstein; Who Framed Roger Rabbit; Throw Momma From The Train. I'm pretty sure I saw The Care Bears Movie as well, but I'm having a hard time recalling specifics. My mother's told me all my life that she took me to see The Fox And The Hound, and that I cried during the movie, but I have no memory of this whatsoever. Granted, I wasn't even two years old at the time, so...

    Yeah.

    See, I was born in 1985... but I SWEAR the first film I ever saw in the cinema was Pinocchio; which makes no sense, since the cinematic re-release happened BEFORE I was born.

    Born in 82, and I can only really remember Disney films.

    Basil the Great Mouse Detective (awesome)
    The Rescuers
    101 Dalmations

    I'm sure there was more but my dad was more of a sports guy than cinema type so we didn't go all that often.

    Well, we didn't get a VCR or Cable until 1982-ish, so pretty much every movie until then. And that was (debatably) about when I stopped being a "kid."

    I was born in '82. So, racking my brain as best I can and remembering what stories my parents have told me, the only ones I'm pretty sure I saw in theaters back then were a number of the Care Bears movies. Which was a big deal for me back then. As a pre-schooler, the Care Bears were up there alongside Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers as far as favorites go. I may have also seen The Black Cauldron.

    I can't remember how many, but I think my first might of been Little Monsters with Fred Savage and Howie Mandel. I was only 4 but the piss in the apple juice still made me cringe. My first big budget blockbuster wasn't until the 90''s(Jurassic Park).

    Star Trek IV and V
    Short Circuit
    Transformers
    Ghostbusters 1 and 2
    Batman
    Superman IV (sadly, this is the one I saw in theatres...that I recall, anyway, but I'll get to that)
    whichever Disney movie had Zippidy Do Dah in it
    Who Framed Roger Rabbit
    part of ET (I was 5 or 6: got scared or sad or something)

    I honestly don't remember where I saw most of the movies of my childhood, especially stuff like Superman, Star Trek, Star Wars, Indiana Jones...you know: the stuff that I've just always known about for as long as I can remember.
