Default Movies that changed your life

Ok, so lately I've been putting together a list of movies that impressed me and had a really interesting finale. I wanted to share some of it, and know which ones did you boys like. Here it goes, then:
  • The prestige
  • Now you see me (1-2)
  • War machine
  • Inglorious bastards
  • Shutter island
  • The usual suspects
  • Lawless
  • Legend [2015]
  • Fight club
  • The drop
  • Rocknrolla
  • The departed
  • Memento
  • Psycho
  • V for vendetta
  • Edge of tomorrow
  • Interstellar
  • Looper
  • The Shawshank redemption
  • Pulp fiction
  • Meet Joe Black

I didn't put them all, because there are too many, but those are the best ones. Share yours and I'll see if I add them to mine!

Aww some of those are in my list too. I forgot about little Forrest and Alien.

I'm gonna start adding some of those to my list.

I didn't like Inception very much though. It's in my list, but not among the best ones, even though I'm a Hardy fanboy

A lot of mine are old movies so the pacing will be pretty slow compared to today's films.

Yeah I noticed, I'm not an action movie lover, so that's not a problem.

Never in a million years would a fantasy movie change my life. I don't watch many movies, most are utter rubbish. The ones I do watch I watch purely for entertainment. For me my life is almost perfect. Peace in the world and the demise of the idiots running the show is all I need. Fantasy movies cannot acheive that I'm afraid.

I don't want to get into philosophical discussions, but "changing your life" doesn't mean making you happy or changing the way you see the world. It's something that happened to you and shaped you in some way, or just stuck with you. Remembering a character or a scene and crying, laughing, smiling, or even the fact that you still remember would qualify.

It doesn't have to turn you into a different person. It's just about naming the movies that you saw and didn't forget about it the next week.

Me too!! Love SCIFI!! My favorites are pretty much listed already, but some i didn't see were all
the Star Trek Movies,
Robertson Crusoe on Mars,
Superman 1-4 movies,
All the Alien Movie series(5). I think the others i like are listed but one other is not sure but think they are just action, Jaws, all 4 of them.
Now just for kicks and giggles Grumpy old man and grumpier old men, MIB1-3 and Goonies.
Anyone like Astronaut Farmer or ET.
I have more but they are some of my favorites.

Yep I have the MIB 1-3, Superman 1-3, Star Trek 1-4, E.T.. You remember Close Encounter of the Third Kind? I have that one too.

I had a bunch that was mentioned but they were traded in for new DVDs. I have 914 DVDs in my database now and that doesn't include TV shows/Seasons. I have a separate list of them.

I dug my old bookcase out of storage and screwed it to the wall for my TV Season DVDs.

Why is the picture sideway?

AMD man, have you seen Surrogates? If not you ought to. Not only you'll see two beautiful babes but a strange story. This is one of my keepers.

Real Sci Fi.

Oh I missed that post. I don't know what you mean by WTF movies, but based on the only one I've seen from that list (which is "Ted"), I think "The ridiculous 6" would classify as one :P
