  1. The Matrix when it first came out.

    It took a second watch before I even started to understand what was happening and even then my mom had to explain that he woke up outside of the Matrix in the pod.

    Between the story and bullet-time, there was nothing like it at the time. It really was ground-breaking and blew my 15 year old mind.

  2. “Fight Club”. Didn’t know anything about the book and rented it thinking it would be something like “The Best of the Best 3”

    Needless to say, I was floored.

  3. Coherence (2013), I think it’s included with prime and is a criminally slept on movie. Very twilight zone-like in writing and extremely creepy, and it was a mindfuck to say the least

  4. My Cousin Vinny.

    I recently re-watched this as an adult and my interpretation of the prosecution lawyer took a complete 180-degree turn. He is a sympathetic, nice antagonist that just wants to do his job well. We get a few small clues from his dialogue / body language throughout the film that show this.

  5. Don’t Look Up. The only movie that managed to balance genuine comedy with a nightmarish apocalypse scenario. Not to mention they managed to make the overused “doomsday comet” trope genuinely terrifying. And the political and societal commentary was scathing.

  6. Not the entire movie, but the scene where the Indians attack early in The Revenant was incredible. Also, the scene in Gravity where the space debris destroys everything was an incredible experience in Imax 3D.

  7. **K19 Widowmaker**
    Couldn’t sleep for weeks afterwards wondering whether or not I could enter the reactor core to do the welding after seeing what those guys looked like and knowing it was my turn next.

  8. The Blair Witch Project. I wasn’t 100% sure it was fictional.

    Jurassic Park, seeing those dinosaurs for the first time was indeed mind blowing.

    The Sixth Sense, I didn’t know anything about the film going into it, obviously the twist ending was brilliant.

    The Matrix. Bullet time was like a smaller scale of seeing great CGI for the first time.

    T2 – any time the T-1000 morphed it was incredible.

  9. Avengers End Game- Not in a “omg this is so well written” or “I never saw that coming” type of way. But as a kid I never imagined I would see a super hero movie like that. I don’t want to spoil for anyone, but there were moments in the final act where I shed nerd tears of joy because it was so awesome. It blew my mind that they were able to pull such a thing off.
