Inspired by Scarecrow Video

One of the promotional rewards for contributing to Scarecrow’s kickstarter effort to go nonprofit was a top ten list that would be posted on their site.

Scarecrow isĀ  a wonderful place, I happily contributed but I declined the reward. I just want to see them up and running. But it got me thinking. If I were to provide a list of movies that I feel are representative of myself as a movie lover what would they be?

They are in no particular order and from every conceivable genre. When I was thinking about which ones I should list I picked movies that stuck with me for years. Ones that changed the ways that I looked at movies or the world. Movies that impacted me, and that I still love.
