    I'm fond of watching movies especially Psychological Thriller, Horror and Inspirational films. There are actually a lot of films that had impact on me, whether it's positively or negatively. But one of my the movies that I can say made a huge impact on me is Waking Life. It's an animated-kinda-like film which depicts the story of a guy who have lots of questions in life that was left unanswered. It doesn't have a story like normal films though but as you watch the movie, you will be able to ask yourself as well what's the meaning of life itself.

    What about you? Any movies that made big impact on you?

    To this day I really value the movie Harold and Maude. I am not really sure what it is, although I know that the soundtrack has always been a favorite of mine (all Cat Stevens). It is such a great story and I think the fact that it sort of transcends generations is what appeals to me.

    The movie Stepmom is one of the movies that made a huge impact on my life. I watched it at a point in my life that I worried about my children growing up and replacing me. I know that sounds ridiculous now, I was young and my children were transitioning from toddlers to school age children. I was also having marital problems and thought a lot about divorce. It portrays how the mother/child bond cannot be broken, even through divorce, step parents, or death. This movie has now become a favorite during family time. My kids love it almost as much as I do.

    The Croods really moved me. It's an animation movie but the concept is worth watching. The movie helped me learn about listening to everyone's idea. No one is always right but if you listen to each other too you can accomplish great things.

    This is going to sound crazy but two movies that really had a big impact on me were Frozen and The Lion King. Yes, children's movies.

    Some of my happiest memories are singing and dancing to the songs from those two movies. They helped to show me what life is all about and what's really important.

    I thought I wanted to enjoy a lot of professional success and make a lot of money but it's the little things like that which mean so much more to me and I treasure more than anything.

    That is such a wonderful and comforting realization, and so true!

    I haven't watched this one yet. This is a classic film isn't it? Well I'm actually a fan of the classics although I'm a bit picky with the ones I watch since I don't want to waste time because there were movies that I have watched that are just overrated but aren't that really good. I would like to know if it's worth watching and is there any film that you can compare it to? Thanks! :D

    I haven't seen this one yet but I heard it's good :) This is the one with Julia Roberts in it right? Does this movie have a tragic or sad ending? I would like to see it and I hope it does have a good ending :) Thanks for sharing!

    A French black and white movie called 400 blows is a great movie. The movie tells a story of a boy who cannot adjust himself in the family, school and the society in general. The movie has made a great impact on my life. This movie helps to understand a child's mind. The movie is one of the greatest movies of 20th century.

    I haven't heard of this movie yet. I can't really remember the last time I have watched a French film but the last one I saw was a thriller with a bit gore, I just forgot the title. I've checked the movie though (400 blows) and I see that it's a classic film. I'm also a fan of the classics and if it's a great one then I'll be putting it on my watch list. Thanks for sharing! :D

    I remember the first time watching Schindler's List, that was almost 12 years ago I think back when I was in high school. Yes it's one of my favorite war movies as well and it's sad to know what happened during the war. The movie is so powerful that whenever you watch it, you can still feel that sadness and strong emotions towards the movie. Have you ever watched other war films that you can recommend? :)

    Yes it has Susan Sarandon, Ed Harris, and Julia Roberts. The ending isn't really tragic, but very touching. It is sad, but it is an amazing movie. I'm sure you will love it!

    Right. Yes I remember watching Susan Sarandon in The Lovely Bones, Snitch and Tammy. Although I love drama films, I just hope that this isn't so sad. I think I'll just check the trailer so I'll have an idea and check out the movie. Thanks! :D

    I love movies...I refer to them as cinema therapy because that's what they are for me. I have been affected by many, but one of my all time favorites is Kama Sutra: Lessons in Love. The scenery is so stunning and the story line keeps you watching. After all these years, I still love the movie and never get tired of watching it. The funny thing is the older I get the more I notice and understand. Sometimes it feels like I am watching a movie I have never seen before. I'll even wonder why I didn't notice certain things before. It's weird.

    I will have to chose Mulan as it is my favorite disney movie for years now and I still can't get enough of it. That movie gives out a good life lesson and gives girls and woman an example of how woman can accomplish so many things too. It's just a life lesson about not giving up and don't look down on yourself whether you are a male or female.

    I've never heard of this one before. Well I mean not for a movie title. I wonder in which genre does it fall? And what is the plot of the movie? Is it a Bollywood film? I got intrigued by this to be honest and if it really is a great movie then I should probably watch it! :D

    Wow...you were dead on. It's a Bollywood film with 2 of my favorite Indian actors, Indira Varma and Naveen Andrews. It's a love story set in old India. It's a beautiful, passionate, and exotic movie. It still sits high on my shelf of good movies mentally. [​IMG]

    Just seen it's trailer and I think it's an awesome film! How come I didn't know about this? :( I've been watching movies for years but haven't heard that this movie exists. I've read some comments and most of them said that this movie is amazing :) Thanks for recommending it by the way :D
