    Flags Of Our Fathers

    It just taught me so much about the war. My dad has the flag raising picture framed on his wall and I finally know the stories of the amazing people in it :)

    Did A Nightmare on Elm Street affect me?

    Yeah, I'd say it did. I had dreams I thought were real until Freddy Krueger showed up. I had nightmares for a very long time after seeing that movie. By the way, I saw it for the first time last year. I was 17 and it scared the crap out of me.

    Lost In Translation

    This movie really moved me. I enjoyed the relationship between the two lead characters and how it does  not lead to sex. It was a relationship that was fostered by their mutual discontent as well as their alienation by experiencing every day as foreigners. When Bill Murray's...

    I was deeply affected by the movie "Love

    and other drugs" the other day. Anne Hathaway IS that film. Her performance is outstanding. Usually it's not my type of film, but I think it spoke to me because I could identify with Annie (Hathaway's character) and her struggles. I myself have social anxiety and could easily...

    When I was 14 I saw "Platoon"

    for the first time. It affected me greatly and to this day still is my favourite film ever. Even though I'm quite fond of "Blade Runner" and "The Empire Strikes Back", it still remains on top. Mostly because of the music. But also because of the incredible performances in that...

    "Lone Survivor", I cried through most of it

    and went home to cry afterwards. I've always been sensitive, but I can control it, not this time. Just wanted to put that out there.

    Don't know why, but this movie touches me! It's so beautiful, Natalie Portman's performance is so amazing! You know what scene in that movie really gets me though? That end scene where Natalie looks out at her mother, they look at each other, and they both start to cry! That...

    Music had always affected my emotions.

    It makes me feel good and even make me break down and cry sometimes. I have watched movies since age 8 and in my life have watched more films than perhaps all the living movie critics put together. I love horror and science fiction. Epic space battles like at the end of Star...

    "Sarah's Key" was a very emotional movie

    for me to watch. I love history and Paris and to see how to Jewish people were treated while France was under Nazi control broke my heart. I cried pretty quickly as I saw the parents and children in these terrible camps and being separated. Watching this movie as the main...

    I was affected by the movie Pay It Forward.

    It's such a sad and inspiring movie. I cried through the whole thing, but it inspired me to go above and beyond and pay kind acts forward to people and hope it makes a never-ending cycle of different people performing kind acts. I would love to see the world do that one day.
