Top 5 Childhood Fantasy Movies

When I was a KID I just loved a good fantasy movie. I just cued up a bunch of my favorites on Netflix and hopefully get my son off the video games for a change and enjoy some of things I enjoyed.
Of course there are a plethora of fantasy movies out there I could choose like Star wars, Indiana Jones, Lord of the rings and not to mention all the disney movies and puppet movies like Dark Crystal but I thought I would go to those forgotten movies..such as.. Labyrinth staring David Bowie..oooo How I loved this movie. The last time I saw this I was probably about 13 years old..I'm kinda excited to watch it again
I remember my parents taking me to see this at the drive in. My dad would stop at the liquor store and stock up on snacks and we would watch the double features at the local drive in every Friday night. Good times.
I first read this book in the 3 grade with all my classmates then we watched the movie..I really wished there was a totally amazing chocolate factory in my neighborhood

I really love Tim Burton and this was the movie that made me a fan! I would have to say Beetlejuice was a tie with Edward though...

I am so excited for the New Alice in Wonderland to come out by the way..maybe it will be a childhood favorite for my son to remember once he is all grown up.
