The War of the Worlds


Byron Haskin’s 1953 adaptation of H.G. Wells’ classic is the one that critics feel most closely captured the spirit of the book, and in spite of its technical limitations, it made full use of Wells’ timeless themes while incorporating Cold War commentary.

Mean Girls


With breakout performances from Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, and Lizzy Caplan, and a sharp script from Tina Fey, Mean Girls remains one of the definitive comedies of the 2000s.

Batman & Robin


Joel Schumacher’s entry in the Batman canon, which starred George Clooney as the Caped Crusader and Chris O’Donnell as his sidekick Robin, famously “killed” the late 1980s-to-mid-1990s iteration of the franchise in a flurry of batsuit nipples and bad Mr. Freeze puns. Still, it’s got some kitsch value and remains, for some, bizarrely watchable.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit


Inspired to serve his country after 9/11, Jack Ryan (Chris Pine) joins the Marines. After being injured in Afghanistan, Ryan is recruited in the CIA, and soon he’s on the trail of a Russian terrorist plot.
