some nights we open up the flood and some nights we are lost  
Meme I took from pooh_collector:

Everyone should post their ten most CRUCIAL CRUCIAL CRUCIAL-ASS movies, like the movies that explain everything about yourselves in your current incarnations (not necessarily your ten favorite movies but the ten movies that you, as a person existing currently, feel would help people get to know you) (they can change later on obviously).

In no particular order:

1. Pan's Labyrinth

2. Howl's Moving Castle

3. Catching Fire

4. Pacific Rim

5. Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

6. The Lord of the Rings (if I have to pick one I choose The Two Towers)

7. V for Vendetta

8. Cold Mountain

9. Serenity

10. Alice Through the Looking Glass (1998 British TV movie version)

I will expand on why I picked any of these in comments if anyone's at all interested!

Not a SW fanatic, so not judging, but Episode I is rarely a favorite. Kinda bold choice! ;-)

Pan's Labyrinth truly scared me to the bones.

It came out when I was nine and it was a FORMATIVE INFLUENCE. I spent that entire summer re-reading the novelization of the movie and pretending to be a Jedi (preferably Qui-Gon's apprentice.) I wrote NOVELS in my head about my Jedi adventures. *clings to this movie with all my heart*

(Qui-Gon is still the best Jedi.)

Hee yes, I agree Jedis are cool!
(I may allegedly pretend I'm a Jedi each time I pass through automatic doors in the subway...)

My own preference would go to Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor edition), though I've always wanted Mace Windu's purple saber. :-)

I was a few years older, but I remember being amazed by the craziness surrounding the release. Like US fans coming to France and waiting in lines days in advance because we had a release 2 days earlier than the US (we release films on wednesdays instead of fridays like US or UK). That kind of baffled me at the time...
