For me, I think if I had to pick a single movie that for me, defines my generation... It would have to be Terminator 2. One of the best movies of the decade imho and mutually it is in two of my three favorite genres (sci-fi and action:)). While I like T3, T2 is the best in my book
Is it any wonder that when I was a little kid, G.I.Joe had to have a M79? and man portable M2 .50 Cal because I didn't have a toy Minigun? Interesting that the Terminator did some thing very similar with a M1919 .30 Cal in a comparable scene from T3 hahaha ! xD I believe I've also played both of the Arcade games that John Conner did during the Galleria scene.
What movie for you defines your generation or part of you? The kind of movie that if you had to stuff things in a time capsule about you and your generation. You couldn't let it go without including this movie from your time
