This was hard to choose because I had different favorite films at different ages but I'll have to go with Brazil (1985) because it was the first film I saw that was outside of all of the more conventional movies I had always seen before. Since I liked that one, my older brother continued to introduce me to smart and interesting films from many eras, but especially independent films from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and classic black and white cinema.  I loved the quirkiness that I had never seen in cinema before, as well as its intelligence, great imaginative writing, and precise and emotive acting, including by an unrecognizable Robert De Niro. It was probably the first time I saw a dystopian world on screen; it was the first time I had seen an alternative to movies made to be blockbusters. It opened up a whole new world to me. It might do the same for many teenagers today, inundated with movies without much diversity in style or worldview and without much to challenge and entertain curious intellects and restless artists.

Thanks for your contribution! I added Brazil and a part of your text. Great to read your story behind this movie. I haven't seen this movie. I will when I have the chance.

The movie that really resonated with me early on was The Shawshank Redemption (1994). People always wonder why it has the #1 spot on IMDb Top 250. I think the way the story is able to so seamlessly encompass friendship, hardship, hope and resilience is second-to-none. It provides the type of magic you go to the movies for; to escape into another world and to really immerse yourself into the setting presented to you. Shawshank does this so well and has the power to really inspire.

pbn: "A youthful and free-spirited romance that propelled fantasies of future fantasies."

I may well have written that, but "future adventures" might make more sense.

Thanks. I changed the title into" IMDb Poll Board Favorite Movies as Teenagers"
I think 'board' sounds better than 'board's'. Almost all the previous polls used 'board'.
And I believe that I miss your favorite movie :)

It think it sounds better as 'IMDb Poll Board's Favorite Movies When You Were A Teenager', 'as teenagers' sounds like you are referring to the movie as a teenager not a person.

I think it have to be "....When They Were a Teenager". Maybe my own title was the best: "IMDb Poll Board Favorite Movies at Teen Age". It's shorter and the meaning is the same I guess.

'Titanic' - "I was just 6 years old when I watched this movie for the first time. The epicness and emotional story of the film created a strong effect on my mind. I cried at the movie theater that day and everytime I watched the movie in my life after that. This is still my all-time favorite movie."
