30 Day Movie Challenge: Day 29: First movie you ever remember watching

15 07 2011

I don’t remember what the first movie I ever watched was.  I think it was probably some animated thing, but I don’t remember what exactly it was nor what was happening.  I do however, remember watching Independence Day, and it was the first film I ever saw in theatres.  Not exactly the best movie for an 8-year old to see but oh well.

30 Day Movie Challenge: Day 11: Favourite kids’ movie

24 06 2011

Favourite movie for me as a kid?  Favourite movie for me made for kids?  Because this one was ambiguous, I decided that since this challenge is about my personal opinion on things, that it should be about my favourite movie that is a family/kids’ movie, since I didn’t really watch a lot of films as a child (the first movie I saw in theatres was Independence Day).

So.  The Wizard of Oz.  Well, I don’t have to describe what it’s about but I will say that I had the book when I was young and I read it over and over again ’cause I really liked to read then.  It wasn’t until when I was a teenager that I saw the film with my sister and thought it was awesome.  I remember when Judy Garland started singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” that my sister said, “That’s not her voice!  It’s so… good” because Dorothy was supposed to be like 13 or something in the film and Judy was also in her teens when she starred in the film, yet her voice was so mature, so beautiful to hear.

Here’s a trailer of the film when it was re-released digitally re-mastered a few years back:
