Another week, another Thursday Movie Pick, and since this week’s topic is quite similar to last week, I had a bit of a challenge on my hand. But do not be afraid, luckily enough, we have all those comedies that take place in college to choose from.
Known for the standing ovation on tables, Dead Poets Society is definitely one hell of a movie. Sad, emotional and motivational, the movie is about a teacher, played by the wonderful Robin Williams, who teaches them about poetry. Definitely a movie that has stayed with me ever since I watched it.
Even though I think the follow up is somehow a bit better, Neighbors is definitely one of those comedies that highlights all those things that are wrong and right with fraternities. Though they seem out for destruction, they also showcase brotherhood, and that especially shows in the chemistry between Efron and Franco.
So, Geography Club isn’t the best movie out there, but the topic of it is something special. A popular high school football player stumbles onto this club that’s actually secretly a support group for gay teens, and decides to join. And for what it’s wroth, I think that exploring these topics is important and that’s why this movie is worth watching, even if it does belong among the mediocre movies.
* GREEK, 2007-2011
There no better series that represents this topic than Greek does. It is all about fraternities and sororities and technically even secret societies. So even though it’s not a movie recommendation, I want to recommend this series too. It’s special, it has great characters, wonderful character developments and it’s all about growing up among your peers while staying true to yourself.
