Movie Bucket List – Films I Need To See

cult movies

I am awful when it comes to movies, especially older ones which I might not have had the chance to see at the cinema. In the past 12-18 months I have seen all of these movies for the first time (Yes it did take me this long): Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, The Goonies, Pulp Fiction, The Matrix, Sin City, Indiana Jones, Heathers, The Warriors, Lost Boys, Labyrinth…. my list could go on.

Since then I have been trying to work through a list of movies which have been recommended to me as ones I need to watch and I am hoping over 2017 I can get through a big chunk of them.

  • Reservoir Dogs
  • The Princess Bride
  • Minority Report
  • Being John Malkovich
  • Forest Gump
  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
  • Blade Runner
  • Gremlins
  • Breakfast at Tiffany’s
  • Interview With A Vampire
  • The Blair Witch Project
  • Life of Pi
  • Pans Labrinth
  • Rocky
  • Taxi Driver
  • Napoleon Dynamite
  • The Fifth Element
  • The Green Mile
  • Underworld
  • Rain Man
  • Annie Hall
  • The Graduate
  • Braveheart
  • Wolf of Wall Street
  • Say Anything
  • The Blues Brothers
Can you recommend any movies for my bucket list?

    There really are a lot of great films that you have yet to watch or have just managed to watch in the last year or so. I would recommend The Green Mile, Forrest Gump, and Rain Man from your list x

    Have you seen Pulp Fiction yet? If not you should definitely add it to this list. There are actually a lot on your list that I haven’t seen either! Now that Braveheart is on Netflix I’m going to try and watch it this weekend.

    Hmm, my recommendation is Delicatessen, it’s a black comedy and pretty unique. I think I’ve liked almost all the films on your list that I’ve seen!

    There’s some great titles on this post. Forrest Gump and Breakfast at Tiffany’s are my two favourite movies and I also love the Wolf of Wall Street. I highly recommend them! I need to make my own DVD bucket list as I always struggle to pick something for movie night! xo

    Great list! What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams is a left field type of film, very sad but you might enjoy it x

    Out of all these I’ve seen two, The Gremlins – I used to be SO scared of as a child and I’ve seen Wolf of Wall Street – I love that film! I’ve had Breakfast at Tiffany’s for so long now on DVD just nothing to watch it on! xo

    The Green Mile is one of the best, and saddest, films I think I’ve ever seen. I loved it.

    I didn’t like Life of Pi and thought it was really overrated, but Wolf of Wall Street is pretty good.

    I’ve seen quite a few of those films but have yet to watch a few too. I wouldn’t bother with Being John Malkovich. What a load of crap. My sister-in-law and I watched it and hated it but told my hubby (then bf) he “really needed to watch it, awesome film”. He did and hated it as much as we did and has never forgiven us for it, haha. A problem shared and all that…..
