    Somewhat inspired by the Nostalgia Critic’s love of Disney/Ghibli (and yeah I know he’s not a very good media critic overall)
    I want to know what films in your childhood, either for children or adult fare, shaped you and your perceptions?

    For me
    Disney films such as Tarzan, Fox and the Hound, Oliver and Company and yes all the usual Disney Renaissance faire shaped me. Especially movies such as Beauty and the Beast. Such great animation. And of course the Don Bluth failed rip off Anastasia. I’m sorry. The move might be flawed and I recognise that. But I can still happily listen to Once Upon a December to this day
    Pricilla Queen of the Desert shaped me I think lol
    Hunchback was cool too
    Grave of the Fireflies I saw randomly on TV and damn that hit me like a ton of bricks. Especially since at the time my school was teaching young us about WWII
    What are some of yours?.

    I liked Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. It made me take life casually through for the most part.


    I suppose one of the most influential for me was Billy Jack and Circle of Iron.

    Have to admit, books and songs were much more powerful influences on me, in an artistic sense.
