        As with the books, I tried to get the most influential rather than just my favorites.
        • Star Wars
        • Tron
        • Dune (1984) (yes, yes, I know, it is pretty crap...but was a standard as a child)
        • The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
        • Ghost in the Shell (my introduction to anime)
        • Shichinin no Samurai
        • The Great Escape
        • Monty Python and the Holy Grail
        • Braveheart
        • Clerks

          This isn't me. I'm guessing something untoward has happened to 'PV' who originally posted this. Porcus Volans?

            Wonder what happened to PV? I hope he's okay. It's weird, PV posted this thread along with The Most Influential Books and Music thread not too long ago and now they are shown as posted by you. Is it some sort of glitch? Wonder if Reinart can figure it out. It's confusing to me.

              I think it must be. I had another user ID at one point & Reinart kindly merged it with my original one. Somehow, PV seems to have been caught up up in the merger. I blame Ms Brunner!

                I have to agree that definitely sounds like one of Ms. Brunner's machinations!
