The World According to Garp
High Plains Drifter
10 becomes too short a list once you get going. All somehow left a strong impression on me. I do find it interesting that well over half of these were made before I hit my mid 20's. Clearly I've grown harder to impress.
Army of Darkness
Captain America Civil War (maybe because I just saw it, but I think it will stand up)
Night of the Living Dead
The Lord of the Rings (all three considered as a single movie)
Blade Runner (original theater cut. Sometimes the studio is right)
Ghost in the Shell (sigh, the whitewashed live action will destroy this property)
I want to add these 3 off the wall movies that I really, really enjoyed: Drive Angry (Nicolas Cage) Shoot 'Em Up (Clive Owen) Smokin' Aces (Ben Affleck)
If you like action flicks, you owe it to yourself to check these out.
Also, Broken Arrow (John Travolta and Christian Slater) holds a special place in my heart, as a lot of it was filmed around the top end of the Grand Canyon, near a place called Lee's Ferry. I've spent a lot of time trout fishing and duck hunting there. Probably the most scenic and beautiful place I've ever been.
It's A Wonderful Life
No Country for Old Men
American History: X (I'll never be able to watch this one again, fantastic film though)
Seeking A Friend for the End of the World
3:10 to Yuma
The Big Short
