I was wondering what people have for a good list of movies and Anime that they use to get in the mood for 40K, I like watching Starship Troopers for it, but that seems to be the only movie I can think of. So if you have a favorite movie you like that you feel is 40K friendly please toss it up here and maybe we can all find a few new funs movies to watch
They're ladies. We can't hit ladies.
No, no. They're Daemonettes. They'll tear you limb from limb and steal your soul
But sar, thats what ladies do.
If you've seen Armageddon, then you're familiar with the unnecessary chain gun on the drilling rovers.
Assault cannon goodness baby.
Or, or...from Star Trek...The Borg are like a mix between Tyranids and Necrons.
Aliens! The Thing. Hmmm... Starship Troopers: Roughnecks (to see what the SoB can do!)
Dune, of course.
I think one of the reasons who love 40k is that the background is so gritty and a lot of media can't (or won't) replace that feel.
"Tell me what you cherish most. Give me the pleasure of taking it away." Sephiroth, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
he don´t forget Terminator
Gundams =Tau Suits
"I could calculate your chance of survival, but you won't like it."
"Shut up! Sit your ass down in that chair and DRINK YOUR GODDAMN TEA!" - Cid FFVII
Blue Gender is fairly well themed in relation to 40k: Giant evil bugs = Nids, Big suits = either Crisis suits or naughts, etc.
We tend to watch whatever comes to mind while we play, last weekend it was Dirty Pair Flash, This weekend they want to watch Scrapped Princess.
Theme Doesn't really play into it for us, just havin a good time.

"The world will be a better place when the world's resources are used for Giant Robots."
Event Horizon is fairly chaosy. Ship lost in the warp comes back and is daemonically possessed. Good stuff.

I currently play:
Doom Eagle Space Marines
Hive Fleet Omega Tyranids
Goff Ork Boyz(dead)
Tau of O'me
Inquisitorial Xeno Hunters
and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
Dear All Concerned,
Just the basics, terminator, etc. But also, check out the old frankinstien, BRAVEHEART (the only reason we watch this movie is an inside joke), basically any movie with a big battle scene.
P.S.-do T.V. shows count, then stargate, firefly, etc.

If you play space marines it's a great movie to watch. Spartans were pretty much the space marines of the ancient world and it's great to see a small force defeating (sort of) a much larger one. It really gets you in the right frame of mind.
The mobile suits from Appleseed really remind me of crisis suits but that's about all I can think of from anime.
And uhh... Bleach! Ok so it's got nothing to do with 40k but it's still awesome.
