100 movies for boys

The first movie appeared just a few years before the first issue of Boys’ Life. Since then, there have been a lot of great ones. Here are 100 movies that every guy should see. (Some suggestions will require parental guidance.)

77 Comments on 100 movies for boys

  1. I have seen 27 of them

  2. It’s amazing that they don’t have lord of the flies on there. probably because it’s a really graphic movie, but it teaches about leadership. YAY 1ST CLASS

  5. “Secondhand Lions” is probably the best “Movie for Boys” I’ve ever seen. It NEEDS to be on a list like this!!

    • Guardians of Gahoole movie is the best!!! But not on the list 😦
      The Harry Potter movies MUST be added πŸ˜€

      My dad says Goonies would have been good to see too
