Thursday Movie Picks

It’s September and that means going back to school for many. Even though my school days are over, I’m constantly in the mood for new beginnings at the start of September. So it’s only fitting, that this week’s theme is all about the new kid at school.

1. HARRY POTTER & THE  PHILISOPHER’S STONE (2001)

I picked this movie because it’s the obligatory movie for the fall season, this and the entire franchise really. But the first movie is all about the new kids arriving at school. Including Harry, who didn’t even know he was a wizard. We all know the story, we all know the movies, and even if the first isn’t the strongest of the franchise, it’s filled with childhood memories.

2. BRING IT ON (2001)

I’m grasping for straws here, but I really don’t know any other new kid at school movies. But in Bring It On, there’s two new kids, who enter the main characters life and change it for the better. I mean, it is a cliché filled teen comedy, but it’s fun and entertaining at least. Plus, who could forget spirit fingers!

3. MEAN GIRLS (2004)

Finally, the most important teen comedy from recent years – Mean Girls. Alright, maybe not most important, but very well loved and quoted for sure. I think the legacy of Mean Girls will last for many years. Frankly, I think I could watch Mean Girls today, and be as entertained as I was 14 years ago!
