Pixar has completely changed animation, and I for one am totally on board. Just because times and technology are constantly changing doesn’t mean kids and grown-ups alike can’t get pure, heartfelt enjoyment from Disney movies. Disney will always have that “magic”, you know? And a buttload of money.
8. The Social Network
Great movie. Not one I’m likely to sit through a bunch of times (or, well, ever again) but it’s earned its place on this list simply because it helps define an entire generation of people.
9. The Notebook
See #3. Except throw in “Hepburn and Tracy” or something. Or “Ringwald and C. Hall.”
10. Love Actually
If it hasn’t already, I predict that this movie will become a holiday classic. Kind of like White Christmas, but with Brits, babes, and Billy Bob Thornton. (Does anyone else feel an unnatural yet fierce attraction to Hugh Grant in this movie? No? Just me, then?)
11. The Harry Potter franchise
If a…franchise…will ever be considered “classic” (shudder), then it better be this one. I felt like I grew up right along with Harry, and I know I’m not alone there. These movies also actually did the book justice! Imagine that.
12. Mean Girls
Okay, I admit it. My motives for predicting this movie will become a “classic” are purely selfish. If nothing else, it’s definitely a cult classic. Which is precisely the kind of non-snoozy “classic” I can always get behind.
