I loved The Snowman movie when I was a kid. I think it was the magical idea of stuff that only happens to kids, after parents think you're long asleep. Like the BFG by Roald Dahl.
But when I watched this movie with my kiddos, they couldn't care less. It was too dated for them, I think--though they've watched their share of movies and television from the eighties and even back a few decades, and loved that. My oldest devoured the old Twilight Zone episodes.
This weekend, we watched a nineties movie where the dad character was going to great lengths to find a popular toy for his kid. My daughter huffed. "What's his issue? Doesn't he know you can just order it off the internet?"
How about you, fellow Sleutheri? Are there movies or books that you loved that now seem dated to kids? Ones that held up?
