    In more or less correct order...Many of these I've seen at a second-run theater at midnight, which is the best way to see most of them, I believe.

    1) Donnie Darko - no movie has affected me in quite the same way, and at the same time immediately put Mary McDonnel and Jake Gyllenhaal on my favorite actors list
    2) Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - Jim Carey is, I think, one of the best actors in Hollywood, but unfortunately you don't see him do this very often. Simon Birch is the other one I can think of off the top of my head.
    3) Brazil - The art design, the writing, the sheer silliness at parts, and the fragility of the movie blends into an extremely touching film
    4) Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - I must have watched this movie at least ten times my first year at college. I've come to realize I spend an awful lot of time in Bat Country, and I've never done drugs in my life.
    5) Clerks - One of the most quotable films of all time, and the first movie that I really sat down to analyze. It was great fun then, and it still is whenever I watch it.
    6) The Empire Strikes Back - The definition of the 1980s, as far as I'm concerned.
    7) The Boondock Saints - The first time I saw this movie it set my Irish blood boiling. It is still simmering.
    8) Serenity - I'm a browncoat through and through, so this movie was candy for me. Bitter, sour candy with at least three razor blades hidden in it, but candy nonetheless.
    9) Once Upon a Time in the West - Singlehandedly made me fall in love with westerns.
    10) Ghost in the Shell - Singlehandedly made me fall in love with cyberpunk.

    I'm seeing a lot of overlap on these lists. Great minds, I guess.
    • CommentTimeDec 7th 2007
    Gah, I really should have included The Boondock Saints. Not without its flaws, but a damn amazing movie.
    • CommentTimeDec 7th 2007 edited
    Far too many favorites to rank in a top ten, so here are a few favorites that apparently haven't made it to anyone else's lists yet (no particular order):

    Bad Boy Bubby (definitely my favorite of all time, I simply cannot recommend it enough)
    Street Trash
    The Wicker Man (1973)
    Come and See
    Falling Down
    The Peanut-Butter Solution (OMFG CREEPY)
    Dead Ringers
