Quote:Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

Edit: 2001 a space odyssey might edge Almost Famous out, I'm unsure.

I watched Memento recently, I didn't think it was as impressive as it was supposed to be. It's a very basic story reversed and told in five minute increments.

Very well done, but not as groundbreaking as the world lead me to believe...

What? That's like saying "Yeah, Star Wars was ok, but it was basically just the Hero's Journey with sci-fi effects".

First Pokemon Movie
Spongebob Movie
Simpson's Movie
Law Abiding Citizen
Star Trek 4 (the best Star Trek movie btw)

I am not claiming these are the best movies, or even good movies, but they get my blood pumping.

Except for Star Trek 4, that movie is fantastic.

Benjamin button
Her
The Babadook
The Shawshank Redemption

Despite my excessive interest in criticizing and disecting popular media, I haven't seen an impressive amount of what cinema has to offer.

It has been literally forever since I last watched a movie so I can't really pick out five of them, right now at least.

I'll just go with The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Yeah, that was a pretty good one.
