Kids from the late 80s and early 90s remember the 1991 film "Hook" for its true-to-life take on the classic story about Peter Pan. It encompasses every child's dream of discovering an enchanted land and battling through adventurous situations with heroic rescues. Not simply a film enjoyed by children, it reminds adults that there is more to life than working long hours.
"Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"
"Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" is a classic film released in 1988 that had both cartoon and recorded video. The slapstick, witty comedy and fanciful elements make it a must re-watch for those who loved it as a child. Although the film featured a few sober scenes, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" sticks out as having impressive effects and engaging storytelling.
No childhood film teaches as many lessons as the dark but uplifting film "My Girl." Following the story of a young girl obsessed with death, it covers very mature topics of love and loss, but in a way suitable for children. Although the sequel did not impress fans of the original film, "My Girl" is a flick every child of the 90s remembers.
