Here are the 10 Must Watch Movies absolutely everyone should see.
- Thelma and Louise (1991) — Watch
Two friends set out on a road trip, but end up on the wrong side of the law after Louise shoots and kills a man who tries to rape Thelma. It’s a story of freedom and female friendships that has a lot of great scenes, some of which with a shirtless 26-year-old Brad Pitt.
- Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) — Watch
Having been dumped by his girlfriend of five years, Peter (Jason Segel) decides to take a trip to Hawaii for a little R&R. Little does he know that his ex Sarah (Kristen Bell) is staying at the resort with her new beau. Watch when you want lots of laughs (and also the chance to see Segel fully nude).
- Parasite (2019) — Watch
An unemployed family of four slowly starts to put themselves into the lives of workers of the crazy wealthy Park family. Then, there’s an incident that can’t entirely be cleaned up in a shift. Long after the credits roll, you’ll be questioning the ending.
- Rocky (1976) — Watch
It’s the classic underdog story that made Sylvester Stallone a household name. The movie follows boxer Rocky Balboa on the road to fight heavyweight champion Apollo Creed in a match deemed “a somebody v. nobody.” The film, written by Stallone, would go on to win Best Picture at the Oscars in 1977.
- She’s the Man (2006) — Watch
The ’00s weren’t the ’00s without Amanda Bynes, and She’s the Man proves it. When Viola (Bynes) finds out that her school is cutting the women’s soccer team, she decides to take a chance and disguises herself as her twin brother to play for his school. When she gets there, she starts to fall for her roommate and teammate, Duke (Channing Tatum.) Things get messy.
- Booksmart (2019) — Watch
Olivia Wilde’s directional debut about two overachieving high school seniors’ wild night on the eve of their graduation is so stomach-hurting-from-laughing-too-hard funny. It hits to my inner core a level of nostalgia I haven’t felt in years. Oh, to be 17-years-old again.
- Jaws (1975) — Watch
When Steven Spielberg made this movie, I’m unsure if he knew it would become the face of anti-shark propaganda. Regardless, this movie about a sheriff, marine biologist, and fisherman hunting down a shark that’s terrorizing their beach town is must-see.
- Brooklyn (2015) — Watch
Saoirse Ronan shows us why she’s an icon in this ’50s story of an Irish immigrant who moves to New York. She falls in love with a local, but then has to return back to Ireland for some unexpected business—and finds herself forced to choose between two countries and two men. Sounds good, right?
- The Shining (1980) — Watch
Jack Nicholson is on this list a few times, but this is probably his most well-known role. The Torrance family, patriarch Jack, wife Wendy, and son Danny, are staying in the Overlook Hotel during the winter. Then, the hotel begins to come alive with a terrible, terrifying evil. Stephen King famously hated this adaptation, because Stanley Kubrick takes out all the empathy from the patriarch (Nicholson, playing crazy like he was born to do it). But it makes the story even more powerful. Viewed through today’s lens, it’s also a haunting look at the effects of domestic violence.
- Dazed and Confused (1993)— Watch
A movie about the last day of school for a group of teenagers in Austin, Texas, in 1976, starring Matthew McConaughey and Ben Affleck? Sign us up. You’ll be quoting McConaughey for weeks after it’s done.
