We've all been there: sitting around with friends, sharing our favorite movies from childhood. We're impatiently waiting for our turn to share, believing we have the most epically memorable film that everyone will instantly start reminiscing over. Then, shockingly, we finally get to share and receive blank stares and crickets. What? How do they not know this one?!
Somehow, our favorite childhood movies seem to be ones everyone else forgot (or flat-out didn't see). But just because our circle of friends missed out, that doesn't mean the rest of the world did, too. Even if it seems like no one else remembers, there will always be people on social media to back us up. Looking for a little support, we went online to find the most popular responses regarding this unfortunate situation. In this list, Weird History's readers share the movies they love that no one else recalls.

Powder, 1995, with Jeff Goldblum and Mary Steenburgen. When sheriff Barnum investigates the death of an elderly rural resident, he discovers a teenage grandson living in the basement. Raised by his grandparents, he has experienced the world only through books, never leaving the family farm.
He is sent to a state home for boys where he has trouble fitting in socially. His odd appearance and unusual abilities cause the small-town residents to fear and ridicule him. However, not all are afraid. Some begin to view his potential and gifts with wonderment.

Lady In The Water. It was such a beautiful movie when I saw it in theaters. I went in expecting a horror movie but was very pleasantly surprised with a fairytale.
