15 Movies in 15 Minutes!|15 Filme in 15 Minuten!

Advance warning: More Facebook shenanigans ahead!

I was tagged in a fun “game” on Facebook (I love those games…). Here are the rules:

Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen MOVIES that have influenced you and that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes.

As not all of you will be on Facebook, here's my list for all you dear readers out there:

Fight Club

  1. Fight Club (I love almost everything about this movie. Whenever I feel like it couldn't get worse, it shows me that things aren't THAT bad and that you can do almost anything you set your mind to. Even if it's just blowing up a few buildings…)
  2. Power Rangers – The Movie (this might be a little “off”, however, it's the one movie I will always remember from my childhood. A friend of mine made a joke during the movie and whenever we see each other, we're STILL laughing about it… granted, the movie is utter crap, but it always reminds me of quite a fond memory)
  3. Hero (for the sheer beauty of it plus all the little artsy aspects that make it so special)
  4. The Departed (I never cared much for “technical aspects” in movies, but this is one of the few movies that is just so perfectly crafted, it's great to watch for this reason alone)
  5. The Matrix (for redefining F/X)
  6. V for Vendetta (for combining great F/X with a great story. Additionally, I like to see an actor “pulling it off” without showing any facial expressions)
  7. Memento (for being so very inspiring, showing us that you don't have to do things “the normal way” all the time)
  8. 12 Angry Men (12 men. One room. Black and white. Doesn't sound like much, but boy do you underestimate this movie if you think that)
  9. The Lord of the Rings (proof that a movie based on a book CAN BE almost as good)
  10. Kung Fu Panda (a movie made for a younger audience that can catch the attention of adults and entertain them)
  11. Iron Man (in my personal opinion, there are few movies that succeed in combining action with wit, cool characters and a good stories – this one does)
  12. Snatch (Jesus, how could it take me so long to come up with that?! The most remarkable thing about this movie is the fact that it shows you HOW much worse a movie can be if you see the synchronized version of it… even if you don't understand a word, you HAVE TO see Snatch in English!)
  13. Fearless (another reason that also applies to Hero: Showing me that Asian movies are a lot better with subtitles. Oh, did I mention great fighting scenes?)
  14. The Fast and the Furious – Tokyo Drift (it's good enough to watch it again, but I guess I'll always remember one single line from this movie: “Life is easy. You make choices and don't look back.” – I often try to think of this quote whenever I think life is getting overly complicated)
  15. There's something about Mary (one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. It has the le-gen- wait for it! – DARY! scene of Cameron Diaz with sperm on her ear… we watched this when I was one of the people looking over kids that wanted to play football during their holidays (like a bootcamp). The kids were too young to understand what happened… they asked: “Why is he shaking so much?” (when Stiller is trying to relieve himself in the restroom) and another instructor told the kids: “He's freezing!” – God, I couldn't stop laughing!)

Yeah, that's my list. Feel free to chime in and share your list (you may also write a note on Facebook and tag me!). Oh, and you don't need to explain your list like I did, I just felt like taking the effort.
