My brother and I were recently discussing the lack of films in recent years that transcend the medium they are in to become so culturally significant that they become part of everyday vocabulary. To explain further...think about how much Star Wars has infiltrated all walks of life to the extent that Yoda can advertise a mobile phone network

As a teenager I remember the likes of Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Trainspotting being more than just a movie....everyone had a poster on their wall, the songs on the soundtracks were played everywhere and made obscure bands famous (Urge Overkill / Underworld). Fashion copied from those movies, comedy writers regularly spoofed them...in short these movies became part of the cultural landscape.

Do you think any movies have done that again recently...I thought Drive might (iconic poster, cool soundtrack, "that jacket") but it never really took hold in the same way as some of those films mentioned above.

Thoughts / opinions?
