Hocus Pocus is one of my all time fave movies, and my Halloween isn't complete if I haven't watched it, at least, once!
Pick my favorite scenes?! I don't think I can narrow it down, lol, I love so much about the movie! I will agree with the majority, though, that the start of the movie with the flashback of Thackery and his sister...and the school scene and then later, all the ToT scenes including inside and outside of Allison's house, are some of my faves simply because the settings are wonderful and really get me in the spirit of the season!! Yes, the singing parts always make me sign along..."I Put A Spell On You" and "Come Little Children"...gotta love those parts! ! I also love when the sisters say the spell to turn Thackery Binx into a cat..."Give him fur black as black..just...like...thissssss...." Oh, and when Max tells Binx he is a Denison, now, and to go home with them and Binx sighs and say..."Home"...love! Then Dani tells Binx he will have tuna and milk everyday and Binx says he will become a fat, contented house cat...then he purrs while they sleep...oh, Basically, any part with Binx is my fave, hahaha!
Wait...there are two scenes that crush my soul, though, that have Binx...when he is first turned into a cat and his father kicks him away while he cries and rubs against his legs...and when he hits the gravestone at the end and dies. I cannot handle those two scenes, I cry, I cry a lot, lol. I sob like a big baby, too, when Thackery's ghost comes back to say goodbye to Dani and he finally sees his little sister, again!
(Oh, and if we are going to bring up oddly time period inaccurate parts like the margarine thing...what about Winnie telling Max to pull over and let her see his drivers permit?? She shouldn't know what that is, lol.)
I could go on and on with my favorite parts!!
