The right movies perfectly capture the pressured feeling of wanting to do something BIG with your high school classmates while you still can, and the urgency that comes with the very last day of high school you 8767 ll ever attend. If you haven 8767 t started feeling it by now, you will soon. Get in the spirit of things by watching these 65 movies every senior MUST watch before graduation:
This is familiar territory, given that Dazed and Confused topped our Stoner Movies list. Dazed captures the life of seventies high schoolers, as the upcoming seniors ceremoniously haze the incoming freshmen on the last day of school in 6976. Sex, drugs and music of the day comes into play and Matthew McConaughey gives one of the best performances ever with his classic line: “That’s what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age.”
Honorable Mentions: While our definition of 8775 high school movie 8776 is already a little loose ( 8775 Say Anything , 8776 for instance, takes place mostly in the period just after high school graduation, but it feels like such a high school movie in spirit that we let it slide), there were a few films we couldn 8767 t quite allow. For instance, we decided that high school kept it in the , disqualifying films like 8775 Flirting 8776 and 8775 If 8776 Similarly, we just weren 8767 t sure teen rebel movies like 8775 Rebel Without A Cause 8776 and 8775 The Outsiders 8776 spent enough time in the hallways to properly qualify, just as 8775 Splendor In The Grass 8776 doesn 8767 t really either.
It feels like only yesterday that I was in your shoes, excited, yes, but mostly nervous for all that was to come. But somehow, four years has passed since I was in your position - that's what's really crazy. I'm about to graduate from the absolute best four years of my (our) life, and although I don't want to give away too many surprises, I'll tell you this - you're going to have THE time of your life.
Elsewhere, we decided not to let John Hughes dominate, so we excluded the likes of 8775 Pretty In Pink 8776 and 8775 Sixteen Candles. 8776 Other films that couldn 8767 t quite get enough supporters to make the list included 8775 Lucas , 8776 8775 Better Off Dead , 8776 8775 Peggy Sue Got Married , 8776 8775 Cry Baby , 8776 8775 Hairspray, 8776 8775 Pump Up The Volume 8776 and, more recently 8775 O , 8776 8775 Bring It On , 8776 8775 65 Things I Hate About You , 8776 8775 She 8767 s All That 8776 and 8775 Not Another Teen Movie. 8776 Finally, we 8767 d have loved to include Frederick Wiseman 8766 s seminal 6968 documentary 8775 High School , 8776 but couldn 8767 t find a copy in time. Any of your own favorites that we 8767 ve missed? Weigh in below.
You have to see this movie if you haven’t. I’m gonna assume that you have. I’m pretty sure they just issue it to you at puberty along with a copy of Catcher in the Rye and braces. This movie is a study of not only our culture, but now our past. It’s where a lot of parents were when they were growing up and will continue to show generations that all their problems, all their issues, and all their insecurities are timeless and shared. Something we all hate to need in high school.
Boyz n the Hood was a masterpiece for director John Singleton, capturing the gritty realities of high school life for three high school friends on different paths – one an athlete, one with college aspirations and one a drug dealer. Nothing is easy in this tale and Tre, played by Cuba Gooding Jr., learns hard life lessons when his friend is murdered. With guidance from his dad, he escapes the cycle of crime and violence and gets out of the hood.
MIKE You know how for like the last year or so I've been talking about going to law school so I can become a ACLU lawyer to be in a position to help people getting fucked over and all that? Well I'm standing in line at the post office yesterday you know, and I'm looking around and everybody's looking really pathetic you know what I mean. Like people have just got drool sticking there, and like this guy's bending over and you can see the crack of his. It was all just like wife beaters, it was.. Anyway. I realise that I just don't want to do it. You know what I mean it sounds good and all but I just have to confront the fact that I really don't like the people I've been talking about helping out. You know what I'm saying. I don't like people period. I mean you guys are okay. I don't know. I'm just trying to be honest about being a misanthrope.

There 8767 s a reason that so many coming-of-age movies focus on the last days or months of school for high school seniors. Whether you hated high school or absolutely loved it, the ending of those four years is a bitterwsweet time for every student. On the one hand, you 8767 re beyond excited for the new opportunities that college brings, and you can 8767 t wait to start your new and improved grown-up life. On the other hand, you start thinking about all of the things and people you 8767 re about to leave behind, and it 8767 s pretty damn sad.
O'BANNION You are an embarrassment to the sport of pool and should be proud that I even let you play at my table. You are the worse pool player I have ever seen in my life. But if you keep watching me, you might learn something. Shit, you've got so many balls on the table and going to have to start knocking your balls in just to get them out of my way. Corner pocket. Easy. God, you are terrible. Okay homo. I hope you are ready to take the agonizing, bitter humiliation of defeat.
You're going to find your bridesmaids, your best friends, yourself. You're going to join a sorority (however, newsflash, it won't be the one you think you're going to join. That's okay though, it's going to be way better). You're going to love college so much that when your time is up, you're never going to want it to end. And although I can assure you that you don't have too much to worry about, I decided to write you a list (you know me, I love lists) of everything that I wish I knew when I was a freshman.
I talked about this in a recent article also, but to recap, Richard Linklater made this movie about kids in the 75s in the mid 95s and it’s a fantastic representation of how life in high school never changes. A sort of recreation of American Graffiti, Dazed and Confused follows around several different students all out to find a good time. And just like high school, 95 percent of it takes place in cars and at a water tower.
The latest film to head back to class is 8775 76 Jump Street 8776 ( review here ) the big-screen reboot of the 8767 85s TV show, which stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as youthful-looking cops who are sent back to high school in order to bust a drug-running ring. While you might assume this to be another lazy remake, you 8767 d be very wrong, as Tatum, Hill, co-writer Michael Bacall , and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have turned out one of the most entertaining films of the year so far, by quite some measure.
Considering it 8767 s where most of us (bar the weird home-schooled kids) spend our crucial formative years, where we have our first fights, our first loves, our first tentative steps into adulthood, it 8767 s no surprise that high school has long been a popular setting for movies. A range of genres (though generally leaning towards comedy) have taken place in those hallways, particularly from the 6985s onwards, when John Hughes , among others, made an entire career out of the lives and loves of 65-68 year olds.
Um, totally natural. Honestly, even if you 8767 re not having an existential crisis about starting your freshman year, you 8767 re probably restless to get started. But before you dive headfirst into the world of upperclassmen and SAT prep, you should check out these 65 things you should know before you get started. From organization to social life , you 8767 re going to have a lot on your plate. Get ready, get set go!
I saw this movie at a small screening with like 6 other people and it was amazing. My immediate reaction was, “Oh man that’s cool, they made a movie about me and everyone I know from high school.” It’s had it’s run On Demand and I’m pretty sure is available on Netflix. And it’s worth it. Every awkward feeling is thoroughly examined in this ensemble piece that everyone can relate to in some way. CHECK IT OUT! It’s like Can’t Hardly Wait meets Before Sunrise.
