Top 10 Movies Every College Student Must Watch

#10. The Breakfast Club (1985)

The Breakfast Club

The story of the movie “The Breakfast Club” revolves around five teenagers who are all different stereotypes but while they spend the Saturdays together they came to know about the similarities they have. You can easily relate to every character in the movie with your college mates or someone or the other from high school. This movie has a message that no matter what and how you are, you connect to anyone even if they are totally your opposite.

#9. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

The Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is a great movie that teaches us how to live life to the fullest. One thing that everyone holds a wrong conception about is Education. Education is not stuffing your brain with useless facts and information. This film talks about a high school slacker who takes time out to teach his friends some valuable lessons in very interesting ways.

#8. This is the End

This is the End

The funny part is the that this movie has so many comedians, that you won’t even realize the fact how ridiculous the plot is. It is about actor James Franco, who is throwing a star-studded party, including Rihanna, Emma Watson, Michael Cera, among many other prominent names. However, things go awry when an apocalypse erupts and ends up trapping a select few in Franco’s house. The people trapped inside have to somehow work together to try and survive the “end of the world.”

#7. Accepted (2006)


We often can’t stand rejection whereas it is not always that bad. Rejection doesn’t mean you are bad, it is that the other person couldn’t recognize your potential. The movie Accepted revolves around a high school slacker who was rejected from every college he has applied. So he thought of starting his own educational institute for higher studies. This movie shows how failure and acceptance lead to follow your passion successfully.
