101 Movies to See Before You Grow Up


101 Movies to See Before You Grow Up
By Suzette Valle
Walter Foster Jr., 2015. Informational. 144 p.

Broken down into six categories—Family, Action/Adventure/Drama, Musicals, Sports, School, and Documentary/History—““this book is filled with 101 of the most popular movies for families, children, and movie-lovers of all ages.” The book lists the oldies but goodies like E.T. (1982) and Sound of Music (1965) as well as modern films like Lincoln (2012) and Despicable Me (2010). Each film has a summary and sidebars that have tidbits about each film, such as when it was released, run time, and who stars in it.

Having not seen 23 of the films on this list, I now have permission to not be an adult. Overall a fun list to go through to help you and your family to decide what to watch on your next movie night. Since the list includes films with PG-13 adult rating, be advised that some films are for more mature viewers.
