Films I watched when I was a teenager

I’m not sure if it was the soundtrack or the film itself, but watching ‘Cruel Intentions’ earlier brought back a lot of memories about films that I used to watch as a teen.

Talking to @Vinjii on Twitter made me wonder what other films I remember fondly from my teenage years, before I grew up and later became a geek and turned to TV shows. The following is in no particular order and by no means complete:

  • Cruel Intentions
  • 10 things I hate about you
  • Clueless
  • Empire Records
  • She’s the One
  • Addicted to love
  • When a man loves a woman
  • Sleepless in Seattle
  • You’ve got mail
  • Notting Hill
  • The Mexican
  • Die Hard 1-3
  • The Rock
  • Under Siege
  • Indiana Jones 1-3
  • Bad Boys 1-2
  • Tin Cup
  • Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
  • Silverado
  • Moll Flanders
  • Chocolat
  • Cool Runnings

The question is now, what did I miss?

    You missed ‘Withnail and I’. Well worth seeing, even now.

    Never even heard of it before!

    Flight of the Navigator!!

    Withnail and I is a great flick, if not a bit bizarre. Must be watched with a bottle of booze, shots of which are supposed to be drunk whenever an actor knocks back alcohol. Yes, that includes the lighter fluid!

    Also… Reality Bites.

    And ‘Pump up the Volume’ while you’re at it :) I had a wee Christian Slater obsession back then.

    I haven’t heard of them either! Where do all these random films come from!?

    I’ll give them a shot at sometime! [Rubbish pun intended!]
