There are so many great movies released each year.

Who knows where to even start when you're trying to find things you want to watch.

Thankfully, there's a slew of films out there that tend to pop up on lists of everyone's favorites.

At the very least, if you really want to dive in to film, it wouldn't hurt watching some of these.


People shared their thoughts after Redditor noobmaster69 asked the online community:

"What are some good movies you’ll recommend to everyone if given the chance?"

Hot Fuzz (2007)

"I always recommend Hot Fuzz to everyone wanting a good mystery with action and comedy."

This makes perfect sense—this film is a wild ride.

Inception (2010)

"I know that most people have seen it by now, but Inception is my favorite movie of all time. That hallway scene is just fantastic, the storyline is great, and the score is on point."

This one was definitely a wild ride in the theater. I'd hesitate to say it holds up as well upon rewatching at home, however.

My Cousin Vinny (1992)

"My Cousin Vinny. One of the best movies of all time, even if it isn't something you'd watch you'd probably have to agree it was a well made movie anyway."

Everyone in this film is hilarious.

Marisa Tomei won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance in this, one of the Academy's most inspired wins.

Train to Busan (2016)

"Train to Busan. Incredible acting all round, brilliant story with succinct themes, and clearly a project a lot of people cared about. It’s one of the only movies I’ve bought to keep on streaming services and I recommend it to anyone who’s interested in Korean cinema."

InkToaster

Probably the best zombie film of the last decade.

Exceptional all around.

Dead Poets Society (1989)

"Dead Poets Society. I usually try to watch it the end of every summer break to try and get excited for the new school year. Mostly it just reminds me how crappy most my professors are."

Peak Robin Williams.

If you want to depress yourself, try watching this and The Fisher King back to back.

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989)

"Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. It has such witty humor and the combination of 80s music and history for some reason fit together perfectly."

NiceEntertainment91

This is the definition of a comfort movie—the sequels are good stuff too!

Schindler's List (1993)

"Schindler’s List. Everyone should watch that movie."

ConnorMcCloud123

Agreed—and this film is all the more relevant now, especially in light of the news that a Tennessee school board banned copies of the Holocaust memoir Maus from their libraries.

The Princess Bride (1987)

"The Princess Bride. My mom doesn't like that movie and my dad and I both look at her like she's crazy."

WrongDrop3273

Inconceivable!

To be fair, you walked right into that one.

No Country for Old Men (2007)

"No Country for Old Men. It is a long, slow film. Long stretches where little happens. I was amazed at how much it engaged me, despite what I just said. Should give it a watch in your own time, if you get enough."

bumblingenius

This film is the definition of a slow burn and the payoff is incredible.

That ending though... definitely polarizing.

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

"The Shawshank Redemption. I feel like it's impossible to dislike that movie no matter who you are."

plasma_dan

This is truly one of those films that seems universally loved.

Probably the best "underdog" story committed to film in the last 30 years.

Hereditary (2018)

"Hereditary. It's The Exorcist of our generation, and nothing will ever change my opinion on that."

Few films unnerved me in the theater as much as this one.

Of course, I saw it three times.

Well, budding film watcher—you're armed with this list.

As adults, whenever you see teenagers being boisterous or rough-housing others, we tend to roll our eyes and move, chalking it up to youth.

I don't know about you, but when I was younger, in high school, I felt invincible and acted accordingly with my classmates without a care in the world.

But there is such a thing as going too far, and even teens who know better, generally know when they've overstepped a boundary.

Curious to hear of those instances, Redditor Silent-Zebra asked strangers online to reflect back on their youth.

Aside from picking up a family member who is finally going home or going to experience the birth of a child, most trips to the hospital aren't usually ones to look forward to.

When you're a patient being admitted, chances are, an accident or a bad decision has led you there.

With medical professionals witnessing a garden variety of cases, there must be some cases that surely stuck out in their minds.
