One of my favourite movies as a little kid was All Dogs Go to Heaven. Used to own it on VHS. We'd watch it along with all the usual Disney, and later, Pixar, movies. No biggie.

I caught it again recently, and I bawled through practically the whole thing. I guess it's the death of four dogs since last watching it a couple of decades ago that did it.

Anyone else hit by the feels by movies that used to not affect you at all?

I was going to watch All Dogs go to Heaven, but thanks to a complete lack of a spoiler alert, I don't have to watch it anymore.  

I used to be able to watch anything but, since I became a dad many, many years ago, I haven't been able to watch kids get hurt or worse on film.

Bednobs and Broomsticks was my favorite video as a child, and I rewatched it with my kids and was almost in tears. The old men bravely marching with what few weapons they had to protect their families, men who'd already faced war before. Seeing the gas so short that Ms. Price used sulfur to power her car. Of eating nettles and other foraged food because food stores were so short. Seeing the children orphaned and sent to the country to be away from the bombs. Knowing that it was not so long ago that we went through that, and that there are places around the world dealing with it and far worse, and that we're not so far from going through it again. It's a movie about the devastations of war. I never really realized that as a child.

There are a lot of movies that affect me more as an adult than they did as a kid or younger person. We usually develop more empathy with real world experience, or scenes in movies relate directly to real life experiences.

My god, I'm surrounded by babies!

My daughter (when she was six) used to introduce me to friends with "this is my dad, he survived the dinosaurs and he was around when dirt was first made".

I currently have all the "kiddie" movies on DVD and most of them I had on VHS when it was around.
My daughter is probably the only girl that ever turned to their dad after seeing Bambi and said "Daddy, go shoot Bambi so I can have him on my wall".
