'A List with a Cause': 50s JD Movies

This list's cause is to bring you the very finest films from the original JD film movement. From Truffaut’s chef-d’oeuvre to James Dean’s most iconic role, these classics prove the timelessness of youthful rebellion (if not the timelessness of 1950s fashion choices).

'Best of Little Bastard': James Dean Movies

A list far too short. While James Dean only starred in 3 major films before his premature death in 1955, he left an indelible stamp on Hollywood, pop culture, and what it meant to be cool.

'Movies Like Stand By Me': Coming-of-Age Americana Classics

The most nostalgic coming-of-age gems from decades past: featuring endless summers, short shorts, and slightly baked graduates pondering 'what now?' The American dream distilled.

'Movies Like Cry Baby': Slicked-Back Classics

Movies in the vein of 'The Outsiders' and 'The Wandereds': following the misadventures of the 50s and 60s favorite countercultural group. Check out 'The Lords of Flatbush' for a stellar performance from none other than 'The Fonz'!

'Movies like Endless Love': Taming Bad Boy Romances

Dependability, manners, and fidelity are all well and good in a man - but they go out the window when one of these bad boys walks in the room sporting a leather jacket and a disdainful look directed squarely at authority. Enjoy the likes of 'Keith' and 'A Walk to Remember'!

'Movies Like Easy Rider': Anti-Authoritarian Throwbacks

The 50s ,60s, and 70s saw a slew of films decrying 'The Man' in all his pernicious manifestations. Then the 80s came and everyone got rich, started blowing coke, and just stopped caring. Go figure.

Classic Teen Romance Movies

Flash back to those high school days of giggles, kisses, tears, hormones, and -realistically- rejection. Lots and lots of rejection. Oh well, in these movies the underdog always gets the girl at least!

'Movies Like Kids': Classic Juvenile Delinquent Movies

A collection of the baddest boys and girls, from duck tails to the grunge days. The more things change, the more teenagers remain hormone fueled morons. Check out 'Bad Boys' for one of Sean Penn's breakout roles!

If you're in an introductory film studies class the odds are you will have to watch the vast majority, if not all, of the films on this list. If you haven't taken one yet, why not get started on your homework in advance!
