What are your favorite 7 films? I’m definitely going to forget some, but off the top of my head, here is my list. Also, I tried to include movies from different genres. You gotta mix it up. These are not the seven greatest movies of all time, but they’re my personal favorites.
The Shawshank Redemption
I took a random communications class in college and we had to go around the room and say our favorite movie of all time. I said Shawshank. The movie has everything. Drama, murder, romance (if you count Andy getting beat up by the Sisters), suspense, and Morgan Freeman’s voice. Get busy Living or Get Busy Dying…Bitch
The Silence of the Lambs
No, I am not a serial killer. Once again, I love a good thriller. Edge of your seat suspense. One of the rare movies to win Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Screenplay, and Best Director. So clearly others agree with my taste in movies. This movie has the potential to give you nightmares for weeks so maybe I am a little messed up if this is one of my Favorite 7 Films. Oh well.
Watch this gif and try not to get a nightmare. I dare you.
The Breakfast Club
The 80s, baby! This is easily one of the Top 5 Coming of Age movies of all time. Everyone went to high school so it’s extremely relatable. Drinking, fitting in, Cliques. All stuff that is relevant for a 16 year old kid. Jon Bender is the guy I always wanted to be but never had the guts to be. Depressing, right? DONT YOUUUUUUUU FORGETTTTTTT ABOUTTTT MEEEEE
Dazed and Confused
Alright, Alright, Alright. The 70s, baby! I firmly believe I was born in the wrong decade. Another great coming of age movie. Once again, anyone going into their senior year of high school can relate. All that was on my 17 year old mind was football, girls, and parties (granted, I didn’t drive around with a trunk full of beer). Dazed might also have the greatest soundtrack of all time.
My favorite comedy of all time. This is what I like to call Quote Heaven because there are so many one liners. The Dream Team of Nervous Evan and Fake Tough Guy Seth is one of my favorite duos of all time. Too many scenes to discuss and not enough time. I leave you with Seth Buys Vodka.
Such an important film in my childhood. When my family and I went on long car rides, this was always the VHS of choice. Home Alone season usually starts in November, but this movie is good all year round. I only have one gripe with Kevin McCallister: WHY DID YOU NOT EAT YOUR MAC N’ CHEESE? I mean come on. You lit candles for this special occasion. You just cooked yourself a delicious meal of Kraft Mac N’ Cheese via the microwave. The clock strikes 9 and you don’t even take one bite? ONE BITE?!?!? Such a waste.
The Dark Knight
The GOAT of superhero movies. Heath Ledger’s Joker is the GOAT character from any superhero movie ever. Christian Bale is the GOAT of Batmen. The Dark Knight is the GOAT when in comes to flipping through the channels and stopping to watch a movie when its on. A lot of GOATs being thrown around, but The Dark Knight deserves it all and then some.
