Cult Classics




I was speaking with some girls in my office about movies one day and it blew my mind what a difference a few years in age makes when it comes to movies you watched growing up.


Granted, my parents made sure we were well cultured in all things movies and music, I was blown away that people just 3-4 years younger than me have never seen Now and Then, Clueless or Mrs. Doubtfire. So I gave them an assignment with the list of movies that they need to watch to become more cultured.


Here is the list:

Mighty Ducks

The witches

Hocus pocus

Drop dead fred

Harry and the hendersons

Babysitters club


Bill and ted

3 ninjas

Dazed and confused
