An Inconvenient Truth (2006)

Ten years ago, Vice President Al Gore came out with this Oscar-winning documentary about the looming threats of global warming. Directed by Davis Guggenheim, it painted a pretty grim picture of the worlds environmental future. Today, Gore has a sequel that just played at the Sundance Film Festival and climate-change deniers are still out in full force. Watch this as a reminder ofhow worrisome things looked in 2006 and ask yourself, Do they look any better now?

Black Hawk Down (2001)

This Ridley Scott adaptation of Mark Bowdens book is still as harrowing today as it was back in 2001. Centered around a real-life 1993 military operation in Somalia that goes sideways fast, it features an all-star cast and some very intense battle footage.

Clerks (1994)

Kevin Smiths first, self-financed movie hasn’t really lost any of its charm. (Also, remember when cigarettes were $2 a pack?!) Come for the deep Death Star discussion, stay for the killer soundtrack and roof hockey. Just dont ask why it smells like shoe polish.

Frida (2002)

Dont be confused by the trailer. While director Julie Taymors biopic of legendary artist Frida Kahlo does spend a bit of time investigating the more prurient aspects of Kahlos life, it also goes deep on all the reasons she became a feminist icon.

Save the Last Dance (2001)

Straight up, this movie is cheesy as hell. But if dance movies are your thing, and you want to see Julia Stiles rock some killer braids, this wannabe Romeo and Juliet flick is for you. (Also, be sure to pay special attention to Scandals Kerry Washington in her first big movie role.)

There Will Be Blood (2007)

Ladies and gentlemen, Im not Daniel Plainview, and Im not an oil man, but I am here to tell you Paul Thomas Andersons masterpiece about a prospector and the massive fortune he amassed in the oil business is worth your time. Watching Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Dano act circles around each other has never been so riveting.

Trainspotting (1996)

This recommendation comes with a disclaimer: Only watch if youre in a good place, you know, emotionally. Because while it starts out as just another fun romp about a bunch of heroin junkies, no romps about heroin junkies ever stay fun. That aside, theres a sequel coming out this yearcomplete with director Danny Boyle and most of the original castso now is a good time to revisit the original.

Whats Eating Gilbert Grape (1993)

More than anything, Whats Eating Gilbert Grape was the movie that established Leonardo DiCaprio as a Serious Actor. But it also has a lot of charming moments and a very sweet Juliette Lewis.

Problem Child: Leslie Jones (2010)

Before she was a regular on Saturday Night Live, Leslie Jones was a take-no-prisoners stand-up comedian. So if you like her segments on Weekend Update and just wish they were longer (and more profane), this comedy special is just what you need.

Clueless (1995)

This comedy might be the most quotable of the 1990s teen flicks. As if, Whatever, Way harsh, Taitheyre all here. Sit back and, like, enjoy.
