A certain movie...
Is there a certain movie that has affected you in some way?
For me it was "American Beauty." This movie really makes you appreciate the things in life, ecspecially the small things and it really focuses on the most important things that life has to offer. It's a movie that'll open your eyes.
The Road Home - a movie by Zhang Yimou featuring Zhang Ziyi pre Crouching Tiger. Very simple love story, with underlying concerns of traditional chinese values and a pure and undying love. Simply beautiful. Made me want to love someone in the same way Zhang loved her husband :lol
Dead Poets Society - Very inspiring. Way better than Mona Lisa smile.
There are more, but I'll have to think about it. :D
Mona Lisa Smile was so boring I fell asleep twice. :ohno
Good Will Hunting
The Rules of Attraction
The Usual Suspects
Forrest Gump :laugh
Something About Mary
Uhh..I'll shut up now.
I saw the original version of Dawn of the Dead a couple nights ago. Now everything I look at makes me think of how I could use it to fight off zombies.
I felt sort of the same way about American Beauty, abrslr. I rewatch it when I feel a little depressed and it always improves my outlook.
I didn't like American beauty. I felt sort of preachy to me, and it seemed to try to push feelings onto the audience.
Wind Beneath My Wings - Strong friendship ties through many years.
I lost a friend after a long illness like that. Grateful for the fun times we had growing up.
I could not get up out of my seat for a few minutes after seeing The Passion of The Christ.....
It's the only movie that I really liked that I don't think I ever want to see again.
I totally agree. This was one of the most moving movie's I've ever seen.

Schindler's List - After the movie ended, I remeber feeling like I had been carrying cement blocks on my chest.
Terms of Endearment - Reminds me so much of my mother's death and who can forget Shirley Mcclaine and Jack Nicholson's chemistry?
Wit - Emma Thompson gave the performance of a lifetime in this film.
Dancer in the Dark - Bjork was phenomenal in this movie about a mother trying to save her son from a life of blindness.
The Wiz - the 'ghetto fabulous' version of The Wizard of Oz starring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson,campy,crazy,hella funny. If you haven't seen this,you must for the musical numbers alone.
Party Girl - the first time I ever saw Parker Posey in a movie..omg she is hilariously bitchy and flighty at the same time!
Aliens - the first time I ever saw a woman kick azz in a movie! Anytime this movie comes on, I get sucked right in ('Get away from her, YOU B****!')
