15 films you've seen that have stuck

I was asked on Facebook the following question and thought I would share the answers with you...

15 FILMS: The rules: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen films you've seen that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes.

Here are my 15 Films...

1. Juno

2. The Breakfast Club

3. Stars Wars IV - A New Hope

4. Walk the Line

5. Wall-E

6. Goodfellas

7. The Matrix

8. Little Miss Sunshine

9. Fight Club

10. Go

11. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

12. Inception

13. Big Fish

14. Requiem for a Dream

15. Spirited Away

I took 'stick with you' to mean that the film affected me in some way and/or made me think about its themes well after the credits had gone up - These may not necessarily be my 15 favourite films, but they definitely all resonate with me. For example, Requiem for a Dream was a brilliant film, and though I would never choose to watch it again, the final scene with Jennifer Connelly in the club will haunt me forever.

What are the 15 films that will stick with you?


  1. Hi - I came across from Twitter (@writershelper). I love your blog design :) AND I love 11 of the films on your list (the other 4 I have seen, yet!)
