    The nightmare before christmas was probably a huge one for me.
    Edward Scissorhands I watched a lot
    Jurassic park was an instant classic for me
    Jaws
    .... I really. Really liked monsters as a kid.

    I don't know about "shaping" but a few movies stayed with me.

    Konrack.. not sure why. I saw it when I was very young and I just never forgot it. It's about a teacher who goes and teaches some poor black kids who live on an island in Chesapeake Bay.. Kind of a Dead Poets Society but early 70's style.

    Saturday Night Fever.. This movie really made fear older people.

    Amityville Horror.. even as a Kid, movies did not scare me. This changed all that.

    Jaws.. see above, I was convinced at one point Jaws lived under my bed and missing the carpet when stepped off the bed meant my foot would be gone.

    I almost cried watching Edward Scissorhands! I was totally in love with NBC too.


    But I'd say the the two that really had an effect where
    Rockadoodle and The Last Unicorn.

    Versions of "Les Miserables" and "The Three Musketeers" had a huge impact on me when growing up.

    I watched a lot of movies as a kid, but these are the most memorable.

    That would be "Two against the Arctic", an extremely rare and hard to find episode of The Wonderful World of Disney about two Inuit kids left alone in the Arctic, trying to survive until their father returns in a dramatic deus ex machina ending. The ice bear attack scared the hell out of me but the whole left-alone-with-a-younger-sibling-to-survive-in-a-hostile-environment resonated with me at the time. My Dad had it on tape and we three kids must have watched it about a million times.

    Strange, I'm thinking back to the movies I watched as a kid, and I can't think of a single one that had an influence impact on me.

    Stuff like The Nightmare Before Christmas maybe had a slight influence on my appreciation of the maccabre and my eventual interest in the goth subculture, but that was more a case of making me aware of my personal tastes than actual influence.

    Most of the most I've been influenced by or remember well are those from my adulthood, Lost in Translation probably being the most noteworthy of them.
