This is a list of movies that I feel everyone should see.
This is NOT a list of the best movies made, or even necessarily good movies.
This is NOT an ordered list.
This is NOT a comprehensive list. There are many movies I have not seen that probably would be on this list had I seen them.
Some of these movies are really good, some are very quotable, some are really funny, some are incredibly stupid, some are just classics that everyone needs to see for no other reason than everyone else has.
That said, here are the first 20 of about 100.
Super Mario Bros.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Monty Python’s the Meaning of Life
Monty Python’s Life of Brian
The NeverEnding Story I
The NeverEnding Story II
All 6 Star Wars movie
All 23 James Bond movies (24 come November 2008)
All 10 Star Trek Movies (11 come May 2009)
All 3 X-Men Movies
all 3 Spiderman Movies
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
History of the World Part I
Robin Hood: Men in Tights
Natural Born Killers
the Usual Suspects
Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
the Terminator, 2, and 3
House on Haunted Hill
Lord of the Rings 1, 2, and 3
OK, thats 82, not 20 (84 within 12 months). I am counting it as 37 though.
Regarding the movie series, if you had seen some, and didn’t care for them, don’t bother with the rest. If you have seen some and didn’t mind them, see more. If you have never seen any of them, at least watch the first one or two.
Second note, research to movies. If there are moves by the same producer, see them in order: ie. Mallrats, Clerks, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and Clerks 2 (note that they were made with Clerks first, but Mallrats does take place the day before).
More to come later, not necessarily next time.
