Be sure to give some reasons why though. Mine would be: The Shawshank Redemption: I saw this as a kid, and it really impacted me. It sends a strong message and it's definitely one of the best Stephen King adaptations out there. Inception: A bit of a crazy movie, but it deals with heavy themes and has some great action sequences to go along with a very coherent plot and some great performances by Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page. Alien: Probably my favorite ever horror movie. H.R. Giger's designs are classic, and its slow pace fits the plot perfectly. Plus, some sadistic part of me loves watching John Hurt flail around in the chestburster scene.
