There are some movies that are just as good as an adult as they were when you're a child.

Mine would be The Goonies, The Rescuers, E.T and probably loads more....

Some however don't stay the same...
Mine would be Pete's Dragon - as a child I loved it but recently watched it for the first time in a good few years and it hadn't stood the test of time. It was quite boring and its humour seemed very childish.

But has there been any movie/s that you've watched as an adult that had lost the magic sparkle they had when you saw them as a child?

Recently watched Honey I Blew Up the Kid, for the first time since i was a child. Wasn't as good as i remembered, but i'll always hold a soft spot for it as it was the first film i saw at the cinema.

The first one however is still fantastic.

One thing I only noticed recently about The Goonies which I didn't notice when it came out is that it actually has a fantastic musical score.

Great film music.

This one is better for me now as an adult than as a kid.

The Lion King, well both Lion King's don't sit with me well now i am older. I am knocking them because they are classics. Other than that, most childhood films i can watch now and still love.

Great film music.
I got this a few years ago http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Goonies-.../dp/B003H8089K, I didn't pay 90 though.
Great soundtrack.

Another "better in childhood" movie is Annie. Good songs but it really drags for a more child-friendly musical. I bought the blu-ray, watched once then sold it.

When I was very young I loved Mac and Me - watching it back now it's a terrible film.
