Anyone else have a problem with the fact that Tom Hanks in Big was only thirteen, but he still got to third base with a grown woman? Of course, he has the body of an adult, but he still has the mentality of a teenage boy. Oh no wait, that's pretty much every man.
The only thing that's scarier than the Child Catcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is the concept of a Child Catcher at all. I mean, what kind of kids movie would so realistically depict the dangers of taking candy from strangers? At least we all learned not to take lollipops from weird looking dudes!
There are so many unsettling things about Hocus Pocus. And probably the most unsettling part is when Thackery Binx gets run over. And then they show it. Also, unsettling? There's a character named Thackery.
There were a lot of things in E.T. that wouldn't fly today. For starters, when they rereleased the film, they CGI-ed out all of the guns. But maybe they should have also CGI-ed out the scene when the alien died in the river. Because that business is sad.
There's no way a kid's movie would ever show kids smoking and drinking today. But in the 1940s, it was totally cool for smoking and drinking to appear in a Disney movie. Nowadays, Disney has said that they won't put smoking and drinking in kids' movies. But the Pinnocchio scenes in Pleasure Island will always remind us of different times.
There's no way that any part of Song of the South would be made today. The 1946 movie has never been re-released on video because it's racist AF. Although, the Disney World ride Splash Mountain is based on the movie.
The scene where Willy Wonka takes the children on that boat is probably the most disturbing moment in all of children's cinema. Let's face it; the whole movie was pretty disturbing. The boat scene was just the peak of it all. Who didn't have nightmares from that scene?
WTF was up with movies based off of Roald Dahl books scaring the pants off of kids? The scene when the witches in The Witches reveal that they are, in fact, witches is, to put it mildly, a little much. It's almost as if Roald Dahl hated kids or something!
