Flashback: Childhood Movies

Do you ladies remember this movie? Escape to Witch Mountain? And Return from Witch Mountain was the sequel. And these were the kids in the movies:
The movies were made by Disney in the mid-70s and they were always on the Disney channel when I was growing up. I can't say I remember all the details, but I know there was an overpass, some UFOs, a mountain and these kids underwent some form of odd testing. That's about all I can piece together from my memories, but I really liked them.

On SuperBowl Sunday The Rock (I know he has a real name now, but whatever) was promoting his new movie...the trilogy to the movies...Race to Witch Mountain
Now, I can't say the original movies were really cinematic masterpieces, but Really? Really Dwayne Johnson (apparently The Rock's real name)? I feel like this is a movie that would have been better left not-made and certainly isn't going to add anything to the movies almost FORTY years later. Apparently, Disney is feeling the squeeze from PIXAR and is delving deep to find some new (or recycled) movies.

Anyways, random, I know, but I had this flashback on Sunday and wanted to see if anyone else remembered these movies?

I remember those movies! Didn't the kids go live with some rich guy and they had all the toys, candy and ice cream they could want?

You made my day! I saw the commercial for that awful looking remake during the superbowl and no one I was with remembered them! I loved Escape to Witch Mountain!

I wasn't around when they first came out, but I rocked them on VHS during my childhood! What a great memory trigger!

I love those movies! I even rented them recently on Netflix. I'm getting sick of the "updated movies." I love the Herbie movies too but Herbie Fully Loaded drives me crazy. Make it stop already.

I am so mad about this Rock version. I LOVE Escape to Witch Mountain and this new movie does not do it justice!
