1. Jersey Girl
Yeah, I know not Kevin Smith's most celebrated movies, but this scene cut really cuts me to the bone. I think as a young father we all doubt our abilities to raise a child, and doing it alone must be terrifying. I remember these private talks with my own babies at one point on a late night with sleep depravity.
2. Transformers (1986)
This was one of the first movies I ever saw in the theaters. Boy, did I get blindsided with the death of Optimus Prime. No one knew it was coming. Optimus Prime in the cartoons was untouchable, the auto-bots would fight and make a mess of things then Prime would come in say something wise, and take care of business. Main characters in cartoons just didn't die ... it was a rule. I was floored, and if I remember right there wasn't a dry eye in the place.
Someone told me that Powder was "the best one star movie out there". I have no clue why this movie remains in cult status. I do remember feeling so much empathy for poor Powder, and all the guy wanted was peace. I remember his speech as well about everyone being apart of all one energy, and his compassion for all living things, maybe planting an early seed for my interest in Buddhism?
