The Road Warrior, Labyrinth, and RoboCop.

Everyone is trying to hurt Max everywhere he goes.  He just wants to keep running until he either finds a safe place or he just can't go any farther.  I relate.  Sarah is trying to figure out who she is and how she fits into the world.  I relate.  Murphy is trying to figure out WHAT he is and has to come to grips with the fact that he won't ever be like other people, nor will his life ever truly be his.  I relate.

Pulp Fiction? Or is that a little too mindless. I also think Fight Club is a nice addition

Being one of those irritating "Millennials" (born 1993), my film experiences were a little late in coming, especially at the cinema. I don't think I started going until I was about 15 or 16. But films that really impressed me back then included:

The Black Swan
Harry Potter
The King's Speech
About Time

To some casual observers this is a pretty lame list, but all 4 left a lasting impression in the context of a cinema-going experience.

In terms of home-cinema experiences, the Matrix is up there, along with The Usual Suspects and Memento.

All of them left a lasting impression on me one way or another.

Star trek the motion picture. I don't want to hear what people think of the first run,  it really made me feel star trek was back.  We,  the fans,  had made it come back.

Terminator 2.  If only machines really could learn the better sides of humanity.

Shin Godzilla.  I really could have been one of the people recruited to solve the godzilla crisis. (Well,  except I'm not Japanese.)  Scientific heretics,  outcasts,  weirdos and general pains in the system's ass.  It was good to see a movie where intelligent people were the heroes and not portrayed as doormats and pushovers that exist to service the big action hero types.

Shin Godzilla - Seems this gets mentioned quite a lot throughout the various the various threads on this forum. I really don't know much about the while Godzilla "thing" other than the odd YouTube video showing the various incarnations of the monster over the last 50 odd years.

I actually Googled Shin Godzilla, and even Rogert Ebert's Simon Abrams' gave it 3.5/4, which suggests this is more than just a man-in-a-rubber-suit affair!

I might actually track it down if it really is any good, and judging by alll the posts on this site, it is!

It was also just nice to see a movie with people i could relate to, and respect. I'm not really able to feel much for the typical fearless, hulking, musclebound badass characters. Intelligent people trying to solve a problem with scientific methodology, analysis, thought, research, etc. I can relate to those people. I can feel more for them than the action hero types.

Harry Potter

more broadly speaking, the HP movies have become the newer equivalent of Star Wars.
...maybe? I haven't properly seen any. but they do seem to have unified a certain film-watching generation. kids have grown up with those movies - and grown up with the 3 main actors. hard not to develop an emotional connection of some kind, in those circumstances, I guess.

Ive seen bits and pieces of a few of them, and they look well made. first one came out when I was about 25? just wasnt the right age or demographic to get involved with it really...

Sven, were you around back in 1979 when the first Trek movie came out? From the tone of your posts I was thinking you were a kid. Heck, you're older than me. Call me surprised. (I like that movie, too, but I think it was chasing 2001 and Kubrick.)

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
