Movies That All College Students Should See

Favorite-Sci-Fi-Posters-1024x576Between classes, extracurriculars, social activity, and well…pretty much everything else in college, it’s sometimes hard to sit down and relax for a bit with a good film. Movies are an important part of culture however, and there’s few ways to strike up a faster faux intelligent conversation than discussing film. Besides that, movies are a fun and engaging way to take part in cultural dialogue, unwind, spend an evening, or learn. There are literally thousands of movies out there to watch.
