If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

SpoOk nailed most of mine. Just add Star Wars (Episode IV for you young 'uns), and I think that covers them.

Wait.....A Hundred and One Dalmatians and Bambi .

I'm sure I've missed a few.....

I shall restrict myself to movies that haven't been mentioned.

Sleeping Beauty.  Maleficent was a big influence.
North Avenue Irregulars.  aka, Bumper Cars.
Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  Also a big influence.
The Adventures of Milo and Otis
Sword in the Stone.
Apple Dumpling Gang
Great Muppet Caper
Newsies.  I was so excited when I heard they brought it to Broadway.
Bedknobs and Broomsticks
Swiss Family Robinson
Pete's Dragon
Dr. Doolittle with Rex Harrison
Batteries Not Included
Flight of the Navigator.  I still occasionally do that little dance at the end.

I remember just as much of the commercials as I do the movies.  My grandmother would record movies off the tv, so we'd rewatch the commercials with it.
Ernest's PSA about drugs is where I know him from.  Know what I mean, Verne?
There is no inherent meaning to life.  Stop looking and give your life meaning.

First faves that I recall are Star Wars and Superman.  When I was a kid, we didn't have cable, nor a VCR.  My Dad had a VCR, and a friend who had ONTV.  (Anyone remember that?)  So he taped Superman for me, and during my weekend visits that one was on constant loop.  I had also seen Star Wars in the theatre when I was 3 or something, so my little brain was gripped in Force-psychosis.  I was 6 when that film came out on VHS... to rent, though, not to buy.  (Remember when you could rent a film before you could buy it?)  Well my Dad was awesome enough to plunk down $100 for a rental copy so we could take Star Wars home!!!  I must've been the happiest & luckiest kid on the block.  Thenceforth that was the movie on loop during our weekend visits.

Once we started renting movies I had two faves... and only two.  One was the Bugs Bunny & Roadrunner Movie, the other was Clash of the Titans.  Somewhere I had discovered Greek mythology and fallen in love with the stories, and although Clash had little-to-zero in common with those myths, I loved the movie, because it was the closest we could get to seeing them take life.  The Medusa in that film is still as creepy/scary/cool as hell.
Spider Man 3 never happened. And Epstein didn't kill himself.

That's one movie I need to see. Wondering if I can get a free ticket the Broadway premier, but I doubt it even if I'm state-side for the opening.

VCRs were not invented, at least for home use, when I was a kid.  It wasn't until I was in high school that they become expensive home items.

I remember liking the Herbie movies and a bunch of other Disney fare, but don't actually remember them.  The chances of seeing a movie more than once though were rare except for the Disney stuff that regularly ended up on TV a number of years later.

It was until I my teen years that I started to see movies I'd consider rewatching now. So,

Alien

I think is the only movie from my teen or earlier years I've seen again and really liked. The Star Wars movies I saw, and liked for a time when they came out.

The typical Disney movies, especially Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, and Aladdin.

I also loved The Last Unicorn and The Polar Bear King.

I don't know if anyone else remembers this show, but I was a big fan of "Stop the Smoggies!" It was really cute and colourful.
