ATL: Stories from the Retrofuture - Movies that Influence Me

For those not in the know, I have started a new web serial novel called "ATL Stories from the Retrofuture", which you can read here: atl.quinlancircle.com/ It updates Tuesdays and Fridays. You should read it.

This list here is a bit of a hodgepodge of the various movies that have strongly influenced aspects of ATL's world, characters, stories, and humor. Obviously, pretty much everything I watch becomes part of my inspiration for writing, but I feel like these have played a more major role than most. Some of these may seem like weird picks but... trust me.

Since the story's ongoing, I'll occasionally update the list as I realize some of the strong influences that certain stories had on me.
