newsies: they almost kiss

Writer's Block: The Kids' Section

What was your favorite movie when you were a kid? Is it still your favorite now that you're older?


I seem to be doing a lot of these lately.

When I was little, my favorite movies consisted of these ones: Aliens for Breakfast (which I can't find ANYWHERE), Mary Poppins, Matilda, and animated Disney movies (usually Aladdin and The Little Mermaid).

Now that I'm older my favorite movie is NEWSIES! Sort of another kids movie, yeah, but I'm not sure I would have liked it if I watched it when I was younger. I appreciate the cause of the movie, the history, and all the pairings you can make out of the movie, and thinking about what it would be like if there had been a continuation. And I appreciate the Javid very, very much.

I tend to still like the movies I liked when I was little too, but my absolute favorite is Newsies.
