    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...

    this film really affected me, i think it just shows how life can pass you buy and you can be there but still not see so many things that are happening around you. how you can think everything in life is perfect, when the other people in your family may not feel the same. i was...

    Tattoo

    Tattoo is a new song out by Jordin Sparks from American Idol. It pulls at my heart strings every time I hear it. I went out and bought her album because of this song. Now that I have her album....the whole album touches my heart in so many ways. Tattoo is one of those songs...

    "Rise Above This" by Seether is the only song

    and music video that has ever made me cry. The song talks about Shaun (Seether frontman) losing his brother to suicide and the devastation of losing someone to suicide. The video is what really made an impact on me though. It starts off by a boy falling backwards off a building...

    "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.

    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...

    "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" has hauntingly been

    my anthem since high school. Every relationship I've had has taken me to this place at some point. Thank you, ******** that broke Brett's heart. You give me an anthem for life!

    "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 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...

    Shortly after my mother died,

    I heard "chirpy, chirpy, cheep, cheep" by Middle of the Road on the radio. I burst into tears as they sang "I woke up this morning & my momma was gone"

    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.

    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...
