My mom says all young people need to watch these iconic movies.
Truthfully, this article is a rebuttal to my Dad’s “must watch” movie list. I was up in New Hampshire on July 4th weekend and our family was trying to find a movie to watch (as always). That’s when my Dad began talking about all of the older movies of the 70’s and 80’s being better movies. I asked him to give me his list of movies that all Millennials and Gen Z’ers need to watch. This is the list of 12 movies he came up with:
My Dad’s Movie List
My Mom Had Some Opinions On Movies Too
My Mom and Dad love movies. It’s how they got to know each other back in the 80’s. Their first date was to the movie theater and they’ve loved watching movies together ever since. But here’s the thing. They have totally different taste in movies!
I sat down with my Mom and asked her to give me her top 12 movies that she thought all young people needed to watch at some point in their lives. And this was the list that she gave me.
Truthfully speaking, my Mom and I have similar taste in movies. I love some of the choices she made, but there are two on her list that I haven’t seen: Mad Max and Broadcast News. But I will definitely watch these at some point in the near future.
Another movie on her “must watch” list is The Wizard of Oz. As it should be! That is such a classic movie. It’s truly part of history with the technicolor and the green witch makeup. I actually wrote a blog about all of the cool things you probably didn’t know about the movie. You can read that here.
So, take a trip down memory lane and relive my Mom’s favorite movies.
