    I'm sorry to not answer your question directly.  The most amazing story set to film I've ever seen is the five complete seasons of Breaking Bad.

    Why?  Well, as a US citizen in the South West, and also a terrific meth user myself, I've been unable to think of anything so relevant, so valid, done so well, and with so few "effects" that represents the modern world, and the idiotic social paradigms "authority" has placed over us to the detriment of us all.

    The movie which I found great was Jurassic Park the first. It really indulged  imaginations about creatures living in prehistoric time.

    I'm going with The Godfather. It has everything that a move needs to be a masterpiece - great acting, storylines, characters, etc.

    The Abyss.  It's a bit old now but still very action packed and rich with character development, suspense and sci-fi ambiance.  Like all of James Cameron's films, it was also very well done in general.

    Every now and again a film comes along that changes the way you judge cinema. I went to see Gravity last week and it is a visual masterpiece. The views of the Earth are breathtaking and the zero gravity scenes are flawless. It will be a long time before another film changes the game the way Gravity has done.

    The Castle of Cagliostro, which features Anime veteran Lupin 3rd and his hilarious crew on an amazing caper - it's not for money, it's not for jewels, but a woman. The film's introduction and music is so explosive and had me howling with laughter from the beginning, and Yuji Ohno's magnificent soundtrack was both a tear jerker and a heart pounding adrenaline rush. Hayao Miyazaki - the biggest name in animation next to Disney and Dreamworks - was the film's director and remained unbelievably faithful to the series, plus this was his first feature length film which would not just shape the entire series (as it was aimed towards adults but this film is family friendly), it would also influence Miyazaki's own works to great lengths.

    The film's finale is the reason why I hunted it down for so many years. Lupin and his team get away, but the Princess (the woman he was after) and Inspector Zenigata (whose life mission is to catch Lupin) stand and watch as he drives away. The following dialogue is my favourite in film:
    Princess: But why catch him? He saved me from Count Cagliostro!
    Zenigata: He stole something more valuable than money....
    Princess: Huh?
    Zenigata: He stole your heart, and for that I'm going after him! C'MON MEN!

    It's a film that has to be seen to believed, and heard to be truly admired. Its music equals the animation and the architecture of Cagliostro, plus the voices and acting are tip-top. I cannot recommend it strongly enough.

    I love movies. There are so many that I adore, but one that will always stick in my mind is one that I've only seen once in film school. It got to me so much so that I felt it in the pit of my stomach. To be moved by a work of art is something that does not happen often, and this was the first time I was conscious of it. The movie was "The Celebration (Festen)", and I highly recommend it for anyone looking to be amazed.
