50 Best High School Movies?

Entertainment Weekly (or Weakly, as someone likes to say) has a list. I'd rank 16 Candles much higher. And how could they leave off Blackboard Jungle. Maybe I just missed it.

They have Brick (whatever that might be) but not Blackboard Jungle?


And everyone knows Rock 'n' Roll High School has to be top 5.

Long live Riff Randall!

My review of Brick was a few days ago.

Agree on Rock 'n' Roll High School.

Ivan G. said...

I agree wit' the both of you--Rock 'n' Roll High School most assuredly needs Top 5 status. (I'd also kick Election up a few places as well.)

But where the heck is High School Confidential? Shucks, it should make the list for the theme song alone, not to mention Mamie Van Doren.

Bill said...

You got that right, Ivan. I don't know how I could have forgotten it. Jerry Lee Lewis' theme song alone should put it on the list. Add Mamie, and you've got a real winner.
