Superman II
Star Wars
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Jason and the Argonaughts ---- esp at christmas time
Kellys Heroes --- had the first top loading video player in the neighbourhood and neighbours would come round and marvel at it and can remember a tv recorded copy which had Kenny Everet advertising the Electron Perfection game in the adverts---------how sad is that !!!!

Snow White, The Sound Of Music, ChittyChitty Bang Bang, Inn of the Sixth Happiness, and The Sword In the Stone. So many others as well. (Snow White frightened the life out of me when I first saw it - I think I was about five years old at the time !)

Moonraker, Star Wars, Ghostbusters, Mary Poppins, Condorman, yes Condorman probably one of the worst films ever made!

The Great Escape
Where Eagles Dare
1 Million Years BC... with the yummy Raquel Welsh [showing my age - she is 70 this year!]

No vids / dvds for me... seen them all at the Cinema... jeezo, our B&W TV only had 2 stations... until BBC 2 came along in 1964!

There was a british film called "Melody", which was also called "S.W.A.L.K" at some stage (?). It reunited Mark Lester and Jack Wilde. Was never a big hit, but definitely the deepest impression left by any film of my childhood.

The Empire Strikes Back (The best Star Wars and still one of my favourite films)
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (Raiders is loads better but this one i loved as a kid)
Clash of the Titans (the original Ray Harryhausen one)
Jaws 3-D (Rubbish film, but i was about 7 at the time it came out, and i thought it was great)
Krull (Saw it in the cinema when i was a kid- quality film. like a British Star Wars! Watched it no end of times when my dad got the video)

Oh yes, i saw Condorman at the pictures too...Oliver Reed as the baddie, catchy theme music, cheesy dialogue and Frank Spencer as the hero - whats not to like?

Star Wars trilogy
Superman series (especially Superman II)
Supergirl (I don't care what anyone says, I still love this film!)
Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (I never really liked the second film and I didn't see the third one until I was about 25)
The Thief of Baghdad - Steve Reeves version (my uncle picked up the video in a supermarket for my sister and I and we both loved it, but I don't know anyone that has seen it. I love the exoticism and some of the vaguely surreal set pieces)

Other honourable mentions: Jason and the Argonauts, James Bond, Terminator 1 and 2, Red Sonja, some of the Hitchcock technicolour films especially Dial M for Murder, Flashdance, BMX bandits, various Schwarzenegger films like Commando and Total Recall.

Honey, I Shrunk The Kids [DVD] [1989] (I remember re-renting this one at the video store multiple times)
Look Who's Talking / Look Who's Talking Too / Look Who's Talking Now [DVD] [1989] (Okay, I cheated, count the trilogy as one :D)
Problem Child 2 (I don't remember the first one at all, but I did watch this one a lot - loved the little girl)
Return To Oz [DVD] [1985] (For years I'd had a picture of a headless woman running, surrounded by screaming heads in glass cases, only recently discovered that it was this movie!! Who can forget the Wheelers...)
Three Men And A Baby [DVD] [1987] (I loved this one, and the sequel)
I've actually bought a LOT of late 80's - early 90's family movies on DVD lately, like the ones above, plus Home Alone, Beethoven, Hocus Pocus, Mrs. Doubtfire - I have a son now and he enjoys them far more than anything that's out now. Bring back the family movie!!
