    I'm 23 and I'm pretty sure that a time will come when all that we call cool will be boring and out of date to the new generation.

    But if you had to show one film to your kids,


    which one would you choose?

    I'd always start off with something foreign. I don't know why but I guess it would be different.

    Children of Heaven

    Casablanca has survived 70 years as the coolest thing in existence, and I see no reason why that would suddenly stop.

    But in answer to your question, Bambi.

    Fantasia. My Dad made me watch it as a kid so it's only right that I force the same on my child.

    Clock work orange and Human Centipiede.

    No, but seriously I would show...

    Black Swan when they're old enough as I think that film even with like a 8.7 rating is under rated.

    Lion King because it has a strong idea of not being racist. Yellow lions have the good land and are nice. The grey lions have the bad land are are nasty.

    Signs because although I hate Mel Gibson the idea that everything happens for a reason is what puts me through life without religion. If something goes wrong I tell myself how the bad action that happened to me may benefit everyone else's life in some small insignificant way that changes the course of history as I know it for the better.

    I know you said one, but I just couldn't choose and as I sit here I just think of more and more films I would like my children to watch.
