Are there some good movies out there for girls? Anything you or your daughter's liked? Movies you BOTH liked!?

Livin' in the sticks with my chicks and lovin' it!
2014: 4/52 projects 0/2014 things 0/52 books
Movies we both love:
National Velvet (with Elizabeth Taylor)
Lassie (with Elizabeth Taylor..lol)
Sound of Music
The Princess Bride
These are just a few - and are in regular rotation at home. DD is almost seven and although these films are not necessarily "girl" films - they appeal to her because of their strong characters, whether boy, girl, bear or rat.
The Black Stallion
True Grit (not appropriate for all kids, but it goes over well with mine)
My Neighbor Totoro
eta: I asked my daughter what her favourite movies are and "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" ranked pretty high on her list.
The Kit Kitteridge (spelling?) American Girl movie is really good, despite being part of a huge commercialized thing. I see someone said Ponyo and my daugher loves loves loves that movie. Other movies with strong female lead characters are Coraline, Mathilda, and Brave.
Pretty much all the Miyazaki ones - Spirited Away, Kiki's Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle, etc. - have strong female characters. And they're really good movies that adults can enjoy as much as kids.
Other movies my daughter has loved (that aren't necessarily "girl" movies) include Back to the Future, Avatar, The Secret of Roan Inish, and Star Wars.
The Secret World of Arrietty, too. Mine loved Nim's Island and The Black Stallion. ow to Train Your Dragon, Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer, the Pipi Longstockings movies, Wall-E, Brave...mine also really like the Nightmare Before Christmas, but that may be a bit scary for some kids. :)
