    I both love and hate this question. Why? Because it is so freaking general and the type of question that gets asked in a job orientation at a corporate retail chain.

    I love it because it reminds me of great movies I have seen, and occasionally you get someone who thinks outside the box so to speak and introduces you to a maybe not so well known or indie movie that is awesome.

    Whiplash was good, was not expecting the amount of swearing, like really was that necessary? I mean drill instructors during hell week don't swear as much as J.K. Simmons was, would have been better if they found a way to get the same effect without all that but anyways but it was pretty freaking motivational and I liked the ending, wow talk about tension.

    Here are some lesser known movies I have known and loved, by no means are they a favorite, I will say a most recent favorite of mine was Mad Max: Fury Road as I have a man crush on Tom Hardy and a sweet tooth for the deranged and well produced.

    1) Ink

    2) Master of the Flying Guillotine

    3) The 36th Chamber of Shaolin

    4) Gentlemen Broncos (sweet spot for the deranged)

    5) The Guest (I have a mancrush on Dan Stevens, and this was campy as hell :D)

    I also love Christopher Nolan films. (Even if they all blow your mind every time and have the same Hans Zimmer style of music)

    Nobody mentioned Jaws. I'm disappointed in you guys. It would be a toss up with Shawshank.

    Predators, the new one with Adrian Brody, badass.

    I like to think of my gremlins (as in the Mark Queppet term) as Predators. Gremlins sounds too small for the beasts that disturb me.

    While we're at it may as well add the Gremlins franchise to the list hahahaha.

    SHAME ON EVERYONE, I also vote for the Star Wars franchise including the new one that is not out yet I already know I like it alot,

    anistemi, I agree with you a lot. Shawshank Redemption is my all time favorite movie; and I also love It's a wonderful life and I cry every time; also I like Forrest Gump and Silver Lining's Playbook with Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence; have you seen this one: you should watch it; also as far as comedies go, I like National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and Home Alone 1 and 2, and A Christmas Story.

    Interesting, most of those movies deal with parallel realities and death & rebirth. Quite the interests you have :)
