'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).

'Old Motorcyle Movies that Still Roar': Bikersploitation Classics

Kicking off with Marlon Brando's 'The Wild One', take a look at how the film industry exploited Biker culture to their own sick, capitalist ends. Poor little bikers! Also make sure to check out 'Hells Angels on Wheels' to see Jack Nicholson in one of his crazier roles (and that's saying something)!

'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 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.

'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!

Marlon Brando Classics

Before he wheezed out threats to frightened supplicants and devolved into madness in the Vietnamese jungle Marlon Brando was America's biggest hearthrob in movies like 'On the Waterfront', 'A Streetcar Named Desire', and 'The Wild One'. More than just a Hollywood darling, Marlon Brando was also a highly influential activist, and a particularly strong advocate for the Civil Rights Movement.
