    Cool! They should put age of ultron of the list though….

  15. Our New Scout patrol watches “A Cry in the Wild” every year when they make 2nd class. Its based on the wonderful book “Hatchet” – which most have read in school. It isn’t a big-budget film, but it really brings home how scout survival skills could save your life. After the film we discuss what the guy did right, and what mistakes he made, based on what they’ve learned in scouting.

  16. WHY ISN’T PATTON (1970) IN HERE?!

  17. Star Wars was a GUARANTEE to be on here.

  18. I’ve seen 28

    Follow Me Boys was always a big hit with our pack. When you first put it on the boys are always saying things like “this is old” but by the time the movie ends they’re always ready to watch it again.

    I want war-games and jurrastic park (can anybody wait for jurrastic world)

  28. What about “To Kill a Mockingbird”? One of the greatest movies ever, not to mention it stars Gregory Peck as the amazing Atticus Finch.

  29. I have only seen 30 =(

  30. You can’t have a movie list for boys without the SandLot. It’s a classic for all ages.

  31. `Why is Boy’s Life recommending these movies? What values, life lessons, or skills do they reinforce? I agree may of these are entertaining – but why would you go out of your way to mention these 100? I would suggest this should be titled: “100 movies Boys might enjoy”

  32. I’ve seen about 80 of these. Where is Ben-Hur, The Four Feathers, Around the World in 80 Days? So many more wonderful adventure films out there to view.

  33. I’ve seen 51 one of these

  34. Guess I am a major movie geek I got 90 of them.

  35. Castaway!

  36. I have seen 89 of these movies. I’m sure I have seen some of the others.

    Have to say that I agree with the list.
