Congratulations to Talli! I'd probably go with Ferris Bueller.
And we need some hot fireWOMEN!

Bish Denham said...

Yeah Talli! My favorite movie about school would have to be American Graffiti. And, even though it isn't about my generation, I really liked The Breakfast Club.

Laura Eno said...

What a list! I never thought about movies that revolve around school. My favorites would be #10, 8, 4.
Have a great weekend!

Life 101 said...

Breakfast club was a hoot!

LR said...

I loved Dead Poets Society. And also liked Pretty in Pink back in the good ole 80's.

Have a HOT weekend! :)

L.G.Smith said...

Lots of good back to school movies! Grease and Breakfast Club are probably a couple of favorites.

Happy Friday!

Linda G. said...

Wow, I've seen all of those! Good ones.

Linda Kage said...

I love this list. You have some great titles listed. It made me try to come up with more. I thought of Dead Poet's Society like LR, but totally forgot Pretty in Pink (and I love that movie!). Then there's School of Rock, Never Been Kissed, Twilight, High School Musical, A Walk to Remember. Do flight training schools count: Top Gun??

Can't think of anything with fire...Oh wait. I AM NUMBER FOUR!! Thanks for the Friday morning fun!

Colette Martin said...

Great list of movies. I need to re-watch some of them!

Summer Ross said...

Congrats Talli!

Grease is my favorite movie about school.

Hot- fireman- I'm there. :)

Clarissa Draper said...

My favourite: Pretty In Pink!

Karen Walker said...

If I'm in a serious mood, To Sir With Love. If I'm in a silly mood, Grease.
Karen

Madeleine Maddocks said...

Congrats Talli!
Interesting list. I actually recgnise some of those LOL! ;O)

Chris Fries said...

Totally with Alex on the hot FireWomen thought. Hmmm, maybe he could provide us with some pictures of a few hot CassaFireWomen?

Anyway:

Yep. Absolutely agree with you about the #1 school movie. "Animal House" is at the top of my list, too. But a few others I might have on mine that you left off:

"Fast Times at Ridgemont High," "Dazed and Confused," "Napoleon Dynamite," and even "Carrie" since it all revolves around how she is treated at school.

CarrieBoo said...

Doh! That'll teach me to get busy and not check blog land!

Oooooh, Ferris, yeah. Brekkie Club was a good'n too. But I haven't seen Animal House. :)

Em-Musing said...

Cool list. My movie? West Side Story...the dance at the school gym when Tony and Maria meet.

Cate Masters said...

What a fun list! I love all those movies, but Animal House would top my list too.
Hard to believe summer's gone!

Carol Kilgore said...

Alex - I'll let you choose the HOT women firefighters :)

Bish - Loved the music from Grease and American Graffiti. Live-In Handyman loved the cars :)

Laura - All good ones!

Life 101 - I'm seeing a lot of us liked The Breakfast Club. Have we all been there?

LR - Dead Poets was on my original list, but it missed the last cut. So it would be #11 or #12 for me. I forgot about Pretty in Pink! HOT weekend...LOVE IT :)

~Sia McKye~ said...

I escaped today (shhh, don't tell anyone)! I've been in a very intensive training course this past week. My poor brain. So I escaped today, well for this morning, anyway, to visit.

I loved Good Will Hunting and like you, I love anything Hogwarts, lol! What was the one with Drew Barrymore? I liked that one too.

Sia McKye's Thoughts...OVER COFFEE

J.L. Campbell said...

Definitely Grease for me! Congrats to Talli.

Carol Kilgore said...

L.G. - Yep :)

Linda G - I think school movies are popular because people can easily identify.

Linda K - I forgot about Pretty in Pink, too. And I liked it, too :)

Colette - Some movies I like to re-watch. Most I like to re-member :)

Summer - Hurry! Final HOT Fireman of the summer :)

Miranda Hardy said...

Tough choice! Grease and Breakfast Club were two of my favorites growing up. I'm not sure I can decide between them.

Carol Kilgore said...

Clarissa - I can't believe I forgot that one!

Karen - I'm rarely in a serious mood. Can you tell :)

Madeleine - Yay! I don't give hard tests, LOL :)

Chris - You and Alex get together and take up that challenge :) CARRIE is in there...#6.

CarrieBoo - "Bueller? Bueller?" I still laugh when I think about a lot of scenes from that movie. I think Animal House was hilarious.

Carol Kilgore said...

Em-Musing - A friend of mine loves West Side Story, too.

Cate - We must be warped in that 0.0 way :)

Sia - Yay for you...you're letting your brain play hooky!

J.L. - "You're the One That I Want" has been playing on a loop in my brain most of the day now :)

Miranda - No need. We'll celebrate them all :)

CATachresis said...

That fireman was hot!! Nice tatts!

My school movie would be St Trinians!!

Carol Kilgore said...

CATachresis - So that's why you climb trees, eh?

The Golden Eagle said...

Congratulations to Talli!

Absolutely agree with Hogwarts. :)

Nick Wilford said...

How about something "old school". Goodbye Mr Chips? Nice to meet you. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Golden Eagle - Go Harry and Crew :)

Nick - Oh, wow. That is old school. Like 1930s? I think I saw that in b/w on television with my mother when I was a girl.

LD Masterson said...

Well, I won't say it's my favorite, but I have fond memories of To Sir With Love.

Raquel.Somatra said...

My favorite movie about school... when I was in high school, it was "10 Things I Hate About You"... and now I'm not sure... perhaps "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist". NOO WAIT! "Submarine". For sure, "Submarine."

Missed Periods said...

Dead Poets Society is definitely one of mine. Oh, and Heathers. Definitely Heathers.

Empty Nest Insider said...

We just recently watched Animal House with our younger son before he went back to school. Little did we know he would be living in one! Julie

Carol Kilgore said...

LD - Another good one, for sure.

Raquel - I like '10 Things'.

Jenny - Forgot about Heathers!

Julie - LOL! A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing :)

Angela Brown said...

The Breakfast Club is one of my all-time faves as well. And I could certainly stand a great fireman pic as well.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I still like Animal House. I liked Clueless, too.

Lydia Kang said...

I'm glad you had the Breakfast club on this list!

Carol Kilgore said...

Angela - That fireman's all yours for the looking :)

Diane - Clueless! Didn't cross my mind. I was clueless, LOL!

Lydia - Everybody identifies with that one!

Medeia Sharif said...

The Breakfast Club is my favorite.

I just finished your book. It was awesome.

Carol Kilgore said...

Medeia - Thank you. I'm happy you enjoyed it!

Old Kitty said...

The original St Trinian's films!! LOL!!!

Yes to Hot Fireman but lose the'tache!! LOL!! Take care
x

Carol Kilgore said...

Old Kitty - CATachresis named St Trinian's, too. Maybe it never made it here, or I missed it. It's a new name to me. I'll have to check it out.

Southpaw said...

Congrats Talli!

Carol Kilgore said...

Southpaw - I agree :)

Leslie S. Rose said...

Hogwarts all the way for me. Mean Girls gets an honorable mention.

Carol Kilgore said...

Leslie - Good choices :)

michelle said...

I'm not too much of a movie person, but I love Grease! And Dead Poet's Society is a classic!!

Carol Kilgore said...

Michelle - I agree on both of those.
