Movies that Moved Me

STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS

I'm a screenwriter. This a list of the top films that blew me away, inspired me to dream, opened my eyes and/or were so kick-ass I've watched them more times than I can count.

It may look like a jumbled list, but I put some thought into it. Some.

If a film from a franchise is listed assume I like the rest of the franchise

1.
Aliens (1986)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
The moon from Alien has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, the rescue team has impressive firepower, but will it be enough? (137 mins.)
Director: James Cameron
“ There are so many choices for the top spot. I have to go with Aliens because it was the first movie I remember that delivered everything I want to see - action, drama, suspense, fresh and lively characters, guns, monsters, new worlds. On top of all this it's a sequel that kicked arse and there are few sequels that do. Keep in mind that I loved Alien (the original) as a movie goer and from an academic point of view there is alot of discussion but as a child of the 80's Alien was slow paced, Aliens was exciting. ” - c_h_r_i_s_b

The Road Warrior (1981)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
In the post-apocalyptic Australian wasteland, a cynical drifter agrees to help a small, gasoline rich, community escape a band of bandits. (95 mins.)
Director: George Miller
“ This movie marks the birth of the Post Apocalypse. I'm sure there are earlier examples of the genre but Mad Max set the tone. Cars, action, dystopia, etc. I love the post apocalypse, it is the modern reinvention of the Western Genre, a genre where the comforts of our modern world are stripped away leaving people to work together or alone using their primal instincts. Moral ambiguity isn't important, survival is. Max is one of the best 'reluctant heroes' I've ever seen on screen. ” - c_h_r_i_s_b
