Annie Belle submitted an assignment suggesting you talk about 3-5 movie scenes that changed your life. That is right up my alley and I couldn't resist. In fact, about four years ago I started a formative 10 film series on the bava that I never finished, so I think of this as a kind of continuation of that blog strand, but this time on film rather than all that messy text and broken links. And while I focused on five films that were formative, I have another 15 or 20 for starters I could talk at length about, and I just might given how much fun this was. In this, the first edition of the formative 5, I talked about Jaws (1975), Star Wars (1977), Clash of the Titans (1981), Dawn of the Dead (1978) and Alien (1979). And while it's utterly self indulgent, I won't apologize because it's the most fun I've had in a long while and I always think of projects like this as love letters to my children.
