/'molly ringwald' sounds like an STD does it not?

How in the world do they not put Lean On Me on this list?

They were in elementary school?

Except for the part where the Breakfast Club in zero ways represents real high school life, yeah, it's totally the pinnacle of high school experience.

The Breakfast Club is to real high school as Animal House is to real college.

List fails without Three O'clock High.

That's what I like about High School films, man.

I never got the love for The Breakfast Club. The cool goth girl redeems herself by transforming into the obedient prom queen and everyone else is just a collection of douchebags. Dazed and Confused and American Graffiti though, that was a good call.

Ah, Breakfast Club. That film solidified what all tortured youth have been saying for eons--If you are a burnout with an abusive father, you can redeem yourself by impregnating empty headed high society types with bright boring futures and abusing the resulting children, adding to the vicious cycle of child abuse and alcoholic despair. If you are a closeted homosexual jock with anger issues, you might be able to become president, as long as you can shatter plate glass with your voice. Feeling out of place? Handling the awkward twists and turns of adolescence by acting out and not bathing? You can marry a closeted homo with anger issues, and if you're lucky, he will turn you into a Callista Gingrich and there will be no regrets. Put on lipstick now. And as for the well-intentioned yet put upon and depressed brainiac who doesn't know his own potential and wishes his parents would stop harping on it--You get nothing. Sit your ass down and do our homework.

Truly, the film of a generation.

calbert: list fails without Better Off Dead


Yep, pretty much this.
 
2012-09-22 01:11:26 PM
Dazed and Confused is my favorite. In the early 80s I hung out with every one of those characters in small town Indiana. Still, that's a pretty good list that goes through a few genres. Glad to see Carrie and Heathers on there. Also, a high five to whoever said "Three O'Clock High".

Who gives a shiat about high school? What is this fascination with the early years? There's so much to do, learn, and experience as an adult -- is your life really so empty and petty that you're forever trying to recapture your high school years? Jesus Christ.
 
2012-09-22 01:21:56 PM
Dazed and Confused should've been first place. It totally reminds me of the years I spent in high school in the small, rural Texas town I grew up in. For your humor, here are some photos from the Homecoming Parade, sometime in the early '80s:

Go a few towns further west, today, and you'd think you were in Dazed and Confused

/was Valley Girl on the list?
//maybe I just missed it

The collection of douchebags thing is spot-on. The goth girl becoming the obedient prom queen is more like wish fulfillment for the goth girls, though.

As a sarcastic reply to the post regarding the ocmmission of Stand By Me (a movie about preteen boys so obviously not about high school) from the list of best high school movies I suggested another movie that was also obviously not about high school (Animal House) should have been on the list.

Wooops, I stand corrected. My bad.

You should probably sit down for a spell.

Also, no McLovin for Superbad?

I don't know why I read that as as Stand By Me. Jersey Tim, I apologize.

Needs Buffy the Vampire Hunter and UpThe Academy
 
2012-09-22 02:00:22 PM
I didn't see The Faculty there either. I guess it overlapped too many genres.

1) Say Anything
2) Dazed and Confused

(The order changes depending on which one I've seen more recently)

Then everything else

(also Some Kind of Wonderful should be on that list somewhere)

Because you think all movies with song titles by motown singers look the same.

The Last Picture Show. Great flick and Sybil Sheppard's img1.fark.net. What's not to like?

Glad to see Carrie and Heathers there.
