I Like to Keep My Movie Ticket Stubs

A list by Shellby, Customer Service Specialist

This list features books about film, actors, or filmmaking that are all about the silver screen and who makes movies happen. I've also added some films that are some of my favorite examples of the medium.


A 400 page long interview with my favorite director was probably one of the best non-fiction books I've read yet.

This film will stay with you long after you have finished watching it. It's my favorite movie and not just because Daniel Day-Lewis is my favorite actor.

A fantastic book that's impossible to stop reading. However, if you care about "Dead Poets Society" like I do, Hadley Freeman has a strong opinion about the 80s drama. Be warned.

My mom showing me "The Princess Bride" one day when I was home sick was probably the most iconic thing she's ever done.

“I have been in the revenge business so long, now that it is over I do not know what to do with the rest of my life.” - Inigo Montoya. Perhaps the greatest line taken from any film. Thank you, Mandy Patinkin.

I don't say this lightly but, "Kung-Fu Hustle" is one of the greatest films ever created. Stephen Chow is a master of action-comedy. See also: "Love on Delivery."

Oh, what could've been...

One of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen, yet people only talk about Martin Scorsese's mafia movies.

"I totally paused" deserves more recognition as one of the best movie lines ever. For fans of Paul Rudd (i.e., everyone).

Like many people before and after me, this masterpiece of cinema shaped who I am as a person. One time my brother said I reminded him of Beetlejuice, and I don't know if that's good or bad.

E.M. Forster's novel is beautifully and eloquently brought to life by expert director James Ivory. With a cast full of familiar faces (in some of their first movie performances) its hard to not get swept up in the life of Lucy Honeychurch as she decides what her fate will be.

Great scott! A fantastic novel about one of the most beloved film trilogies in history.

I've had this movie memorized since I was 12, and it is the reason I listen to the Dead Kennedys. Mr. Fincher, when is the sequel coming out?

Ask me about how this movie changed my life dramatically.

Never has a film series drawn me in and had me more invested than The Wachowskis Matrix series. Truly one of the greatest and plus, you can never go wrong with Keanu Reeves.

The characters are, frankly, morally and ethically terrible (a specialty of PTA), and, literally, nothing really happens. Aesthetically? This movie is a masterpiece. It's paced so well you don't realize its nearly three hours long, and the soundtrack is killer. I saw it in theaters twice, I got a poster, and the soundtrack. I'm also now a fan of Haim; thank you, Paul Thomas Anderson.

Tarantino explaining the films that made him who he is today was strangely moving and refreshing to see from the auteur.
