For me..

Aliens, I was in 5th grade when it came out and had never seen a scary movie before....didn't sleep for a week.

Friday night lights....I hate sports movies, 'cept this one.

Fight Club...need I explain?

Desperado....I love this movie, and Salma Hayek makes my eyes dialate.

Night of the living dead. I saw it at the drive in in 68 or 69. I was only a kid but from then on, I knew I had to be heavily armed and well stocked.

Interesting. I find that Movies seem to register as markers designating little epochs in my life. The style, design, feel of the popular movies at the time mold society in some small way for the short period of time that they are popular. From the lingo used (I see dead people), to the style of dress (big fooking pendants and crap after titanic), to musical revolutions (riverdance and crap taking off after....Titanic).

then there are movies that are significant because of personal reasons....the first movie I saw with a GF (titanic again....oh the humanity) or movies that struck a note for no apparent reason (Ghost Dog).

Can't forget SPR for the sheer violence and the first movie that comes close to the war footage I have seen. I feel a knot in my gut every time I see the part towards the end with the sticky bombs, the guy splatters like a mud puddle.

Apocalypse Now. Made me realize I wasn't alone and why I wasn't crazy. The people around me were fools and naifs in game they don't understand. ( I identified with Colonel Kurtz)

Dont expect them to understand. Don't get off the boat.

Changed my life?

Easily when I was a kid the movies that influenced me the most was Aliens and Predator. I loved those movies.


Also Tremors is responsible for my gun affection....(Burt ruled)

Red Dawn

A movie alot of gun hating liberals need to be forced to watch over and over, Clockwork Orange style.
Link Posted: 8/11/2005 7:20:22 PM EDT
I saw both of these the same day when I was about ten years old, the lessons were not lost on me.

Scarface- drugs rock, money's great, you'll get rich and both will get you killed in the end.

Apocalypse Now- war is insane, war is fun, do what you are supposed to and you will still get
fucked in the end, your leaders will betray you.

Saving Private Ryan - To me, no other war movie had been so raw & emotion filled when this came out. I saw it opening weekend with my mother & uncle. I was in literal shock & awe throughout the entrie movie. It was like nothing else I had ever seen in my life. Now its on TNT about every other week, but still still very influential.

Night of the Living Dead - This movie scared me when I was a kid.... I mean scared the shit out of me. This one movie was pretty much the only horror flick that ever scared me and I was raised on them.

The Big Lebowski - A throw-back to old detective movies, with some of the most "interesting" characters to say the least. The dialogue is great, and the acting as well. Its truly one of a kind.

Casablanca - The only love story I enjoyed. It doesn't have a happy ending unlike the vast romance movies, but it teaches that sometimes in life we have to scarifice the things and people we love. (If & when Hollywood remakes this, I will shit a brick)

The "EXSORSIST" I was raised Catholic and heard about exorsisms but that movie had me checking the attic and throwing out the ouiji board. I think I was a about 22 or 23 when I saw it. Kinda had me staing awake at night and shit.

Fight Club was a big one...


The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension was another big one. I vowed to become a half-Japanese, half-American brain surgeon, rock star, scientist, and presidental advisor.

Obviously there were some logistical problems with that, so I settled for drinking beer when I grow up as being what I wanted to do.

I don't see it mentioned much... I guess because it was mini-series... but Lonesome Dove is just about the best thing there has ever been on TV.

Sometimes I throw the DVD in just to watch Gus deal with the surly bartender and to watch Woodrow beat the crap of the guy trying to take Dish's horse.
