Kinda response to the "Overrated" theard. What films really made mark on your psyche? Like-films that made you think-like reading a book that changed your life. When I read THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE and TO KILL A  MOCKING BIRD-It made me take account of my feelings...of me. Very few films can do what some books do to me. Call me weird or old fashoined. Books have a bigger influance than film on my way of thinking. BUT-we are talking of movies-and there are some that are personally iconic-that you think are classic. That stay with you-always! Mine-

1.WHITE ZOMBIE (1932) Like a Grimms fairy Tale..notta lotta dialog....doesnt need it-the imagery is haunting.
2.LAWRENCE OF ARABIA-Even though it's landscape is so wide in scope and epic-it still digs into the charecters minds. Great film.
6.2001: A SPACE ODDESY-Pure science ficrion.
7.BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN-Might be one of the best films ever.If you've never seen it-do yerself a favor-change your life,man.
10.The BRAIN THAT WOULDNT DIE-Yeh-This is a personal 'change your life" movie for me. I seen this when I was 12...made me realize that low budget crap was worth watching.

The original Star War series, when I was kid that was amazing.

Nowadays: "Brick", "Elite Squad" and pretty much anything by Shane Meadows. "This Is England" still gives me goosebumps.

Actually, low budget Frailty.  I liked the story.  It is more character and story driven then much coming out today.  I also enjoyed The Cell on its first release.  I also liked Gladiator.  If you didn't like it, deal with it.  TongueOut   Wink

It wasnt a movie what done it for me. It was the tv show In Search Of hosted by Leonard Nimoy.  The Bigfoot episode kicked my little redneck ass

Oh thread now has a counterpoint, how fun!   TeddyR

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs: I heard the film was good, but I could never imagine just how good it was.  All the jokes were perfectly timed, the voice acting was superb, the visuals were a treat, and I love to rewatch over and over.  Needs far more love.

Paprika: I randomly grabbed this off the buy shelf at Blockbuster and I was just blown away at this film.  This film to me if the third best film I have ever seen and would gladly watch it over and over again.

Stanley Kubrick: 2001 and A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. 

"Clive [Barker]'s idea of a great time is to have a nightmare about a woman with three heads and no skin who flays your body with a pitchfork. To give you some idea, NIGHTBREED has over 200 pus monsters, including one guy with a crescent moonhead like the McDonald's commercial and a fat guy with snakes that pop out of his stomach and eat your face off, and these are the GOOD GUYS. These are the people we're supposed to LIKE."-Joe Bob on NIGHTBREED

Jaws, my all time favorite.  No film has ever been as re watchable as this one for me.  I first saw it when I was really young and I still find it as thrilling as I did years ago.

Back To The Future, actually the whole series but part one oddly always makes me sit on the edge of my seat at the end.  I know how its going to end but I still find it nail bitting.

Jurassic Park.

Just mind blowing and I was the perfect age for it.  Smile
I love this film and found the T-Rex sequence one of the most tantalizing bits of cinema of all time. 

Theres other but those are the first that come to mind right now.

I will agree fully with Twelve Angry Men. The remake wasn't bad, but the 1950's version with Henry Fonda was amazing. Anybody who has never seen this film should correct that. It is amazingly engaging, and must get points for being so un-boring considering is it entirely driven by dialogue. It has a very tense and claustrophobic feel that hits you immediately.

Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus

This famous scene:

Small | Large

I was left utterly speechless when I saw that.
