    Thought it would be cool to make a thread for everyone to share theirs. Just post your list, it doesn't need to be in order, unless you'd like to.

    Mine, in no particular order:

    Jurassic Park
    Looper (or Snowpiercer, can't decide)
    Children of Men
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    American Beauty
    The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
    The Babadook
    District 9
    Pulp Fiction
    Donnie Darko

    I couldn't squeeze Blade Runner, Inception, Memento, Empire Strikes Back, or The Return of the King in there :p

    Snatch
    Alien
    Blade Runner
    The Green Mile
    Matrix
    Seven
    Robocop (original)
    Dredd
    Star Wars (at the time)

    Yeah, pulp action and scifi. There's a ton of solid traditional movies but those above were probably my most memorable or had some kind of impact.

    Good to hear ! I love the 'rawness' of films like Mad Max 1 where you can tell there wasnt a huge budget. Mad Max 2 is great though. Mad Max 3 was all 'hollywood' and wasnt the same. Seen the trailer for the new Mad Max film for next year which looks great.

    I still enjoy watching the original Star Wars trilogy and looking out for bits i havent really noticed before in the background or characters you suddenly notice etc. Think the classic Robocop back in 1987 was exceptional for its time.

    Evil Dead II 'at the time' made me jump a ton when i first watched it as a teenager in the dark !
