Forgotten Movies

Post by aparadissis » Mar Sun 08, 2009 11:23 am

I just had a blast from the past. While home with a sick child, I killed some time watching some old dusty movies from my collection. I never realized that The Black Hole was a Disney movie. That movie gets better with time.

What old Disney movies do you watch that the *kids* today don't know about :?:

from what I've noticed, it's alot of the live action ones from the 50s and 60s.

I don't know about old Disney movies although I do have a few of them. For me it's the old Sci-Fi classics that I watch. My kids are sometimes amazed to realized that what they thought new movies are actually remakes and sometimes better then the new ones.

I don't have many old movies. The only ones I know we have are Escape to Witch Mountain, The Cat From Outer Space, The Love Bug, and Flight of the Navigator. I always forget Flight of the Navigator was a Disney film.

OMG Someone has actually heard of Flight of the Navigator? It was one of my favorite movies as a child and I still love it to this day. I even bought it on DVD. It is just one of those movies that I will always love even if I'm 50 :)

One of my all-time favorites is The Island At The Top of The World. That's the one where the Hyperion airship (in Disneyland Paris) is from.

Okay, maybe it is just because we are all Disney nuts that we love this movie so much and have actually heard of it. I like, like I assume packwingfn has, concluded that I was the only person in the world who owned this movie (VHS and DVD).

you can tell that Flight of the Navigator is a Disney movie based on 1 scene - a girl is wearing a 1982 EPCOT CENTER t-shirt. I don't think that any other studio would feature a park owned by an opposing company...

Flight of the Navigator is one of my all favorite movie! Can anyone name who does the voice of the ship? 8-)

Twisted sister? Who's she? :lol:

Flight of the Navigator is One of my favorites too. Everytime I see a twinkie I think of the ship saying "Hey Blimp-o, oink, oink, too many Twinkies"

ok, I know that this is a little off topic, but this is so weird...

talking about this movie (Flight of the Navigator, that is), got me wanting to watch it again, especially when the good Dr posted that video of it. Anyways, based on Jacca's question (Who played the voice of the ship/Max?), I went on IMDb to see who else was in it, and what they're up to now. I totally forgot that Sarah Jessica Parker was in it.

anyways, while looking through the credits, I clicked Paul Ruebens' page, and found this little gem. Looks like Pee-Wee is making a come back... :D

Paul Reubens, of course; aka Pee-Wee Herman and Captian Rex from Star Tours. He was uncredited with that role, little tidbit.

You can tell it's him after he does the mind meld thing with the navigator. He does the classic Pee Wee Herman laugh.

Yes Sarah Jessica Parker is the nurse that went to the Twisted Sister concert. She had purple hair.
