What's the first film you remember watching?

Post by Tamara Abdellatif »

Hello everyone!

I'm very curious about people's very first movie they remember watching, because my kid is almost old enough to watch a whole movie now, and I'm nervous about choosing..

So What was the first movie YOU'VE ever seen?
What age were you?
Tell me about your experience, did you like it? how was it? .. etc

Thanks in advance! :tiphat:

That's a tricky question indeed. If I had to bet some money, I would say the answer would be The Karate Kid. I could be completely wrong, though.

The first film I watched was Om Shanti Om and I will probably never forget that movie cause I had seen it so many times that by the time I was bored the CD had given up too.
Imagine if we had no secrets, no respite from the truth. What if everything was laid bare the moment, we introduced ourselves?

Indeed, the film offers several lessons in humility, perseverance, and respect for elders. Truly an 80's classic.

The first one I remember from my early early childhood was "Snowhite and the Seven Dwarfs". An absolute classic Disney film <3

The first one I remember as boy was lord of the ring. I can’t recall all that happened then but I can’t forget the character of “gandof” I always felt safe seeing him.

Umm, I remember watching Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets. My dad bought the CD for me while on a business trip. I was very young at that time. I still have that cd with me.

The Hunger Games is the first film I recall watching. For whatever reason, I was too young at that time to see the characters' efforts to win the game. Even now, on weekends especially, I still see this movie on television.
