Every so often, a film comes along with the power to change the way you think or act. Now, this may or may not have been the film’s intention…but that doesn’t matter. What matters is the effect this film had on you; how it impacted your inner being, how it altered your brain, how it stimulated your soul. This is what makes movies special: their power to induce change in those who view them.
The following 5 films changed my life…for better or worse.
5. THE LORD OF THE RINGS
Just like Aragorn in The Two Towers, I now confidently bust open double doors like a bawss.

I now find it incredibly difficult to dip below 50 while driving any sort of vehicle. (I know. there’s a sex joke in here somewhere…)
3. THE MATRIX
“I think, therefore I am.” This statement reflects the only thing anyone can truly know. The Matrix made first-year Philosophy make so much more sense. Thank you, The Matrix (…sit down, Reloaded and Revolutions; I’m not talking to you).
2. PAY IT FORWARD
Doing good and helping others gets you killed. That’s what I learned from Pay it Forward.
1. THE 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN
I would say I learned that good things come to those who wait…but that would be a lie. Truth be told, I realized how important it is to have sex early on in life, or else end up developing abnormally.
So tell us, what movies changed your life and how?
