7. Back to the Future

Back to the Future
Back to the Future is one of those movies that makes you think that there is no limit to the creativity that is possible by Hollywood. For Marty McFly, the Dolorean, that Huey Lewis-infused soundtrack, we give thanks for it all!

8. Twelve Monkeys

Twelve Monkeys
Movies have the power to truly take you away and leave you thinking about absolutely nothing but what you're watching for two hours. Few movies have the ability to transcend the viewing experience and have it stay with you after witnessing it. Twelve Monkeys is one of those movies. We'll never forget leaving the theater and looking at all those people and wanting to yell, "You're all going to die!" Thank you, Terry Gilliam, for that.

9. Fight Club

Fight Club
That twist! The acting! That twist! The powerful story! That twist! Oh wait, sorry, thanks for making us realize that there is no talking about Fight Club.

10. The Shawshank Redemption

The Shawshank Redemption
Here's a movie that is so powerful that we have actually only seen it once. And even all these years later, we can remember every scene, every frame, every moment. Thank you, indeed.

11. The Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club
The Breakfast Club arrived at a time when no other movie in history had spoke to us like the John Hughes film did. And even after all these years, it still has the resonance that few movies possess. Simply incredible. Thank you, Hughes, for changing our lives and showing us that there are others out there who feel the same way.

12. Almost Famous

Almost Famous
Almost Famous was the first movie review this Movie Fanatic ever wrote. It is largely why I sit here today writing this piece. So, thank you, Cameron Crowe.
