These movies are only on Netflix for a limited time, so have your fill! Though these options were chosen by my personal opinions, these movies have fundamental meanings that I believe should be acknowledged by everyone (with access to a Netflix account, at least)

10. "The Iron Giant"

Who says you’re too old for cartoons? Especially for this one of a kind, heartwarming story about a boy and his robot. It’s surprising how many people have yet to see The Iron Giant, or at least don’t remember it. If you’re one of these people, I suggest you refresh your memory; especially since it makes a cameo in the new film adaptation Ready Player One, you don’t want to miss it.

9. "Dead Poets Society"

I used to hate poetry until this movie came into my life. I still hate poetry, but now I have a greater appreciation for it because of how enthusiastic the young boys in Dead Poets Society are about their club that meets only in the dead of night, far into the woods in a cave where they recite poetry to each other for fun. Hopefully this movie can encourage you to look at life from a different angle and "make your lives extraordinary"

8. "To Kill A Mockingbird"

Don’t worry, I won’t tell your 9th-grade English teacher you didn’t read the book. Although, there are a few differences between the book and the movie, To Kill A Mockingbird covers complex issues of racial inequality and rape. This movie follows Scout, a young tomboy, and her father Atticus Finch, a lawyer who is set on freeing a black man from a false rape accusation in 1936 southern Alabama.

7. "The Truman Show"

What would happen if you combine daily family vloggers with reality TV? You can find out in what is arguably Jim Carrey’s greatest performance as Truman Burbank in the made-up town of Seahaven Island. On the day he wan born, Truman became a national reality television star with every aspect of his life controlled by the corporation that adopted him

6. "Kill Bill"

I’m sure you’ve seen the famous yellow jumpsuit in posters, magazines, and amusing homages to this iconic movie. Kill Bill follows Uma Thurman’s character, who is known simply as The Bride, as she wakes from a coma and hunts down her former team of assassins who caused the death of her family and unborn daughter.

5. "The Prince of Egypt"

If you need a pick-me-up or some inspiration to do that assignment you’ve been procrastinating on, this is the perfect movie for you. I recommend The Prince of Egypt to anyone regardless of their religion because that’s not what this movie is about… It’s about the epic soundtrack that will make you cry in the first ten minutes of the movie.

4. "Breakfast at Tiffany’s"

Everyone loves Audrey Hepburn, as an actress, a model, dancer, and humanitarian. But she is most famous for her performance as Holly Golightly, an eccentric yet charming New Yorker whose only dream is to live lavishly and be rich enough to shop at Tiffany’s. This film set the tone for an entire generation of dreamers who wished to change their lives and move to the Big Apple in search of their big break. But instead of becoming rich and famous, like Holly, found that the best things in life are free. Like a cat, or a ring found in a box of Cracker Jacks.

3. "Heathers"

No, I don’t mean the new 2018 Paramount TV series that ruined the entire plot-line and meaning of the original movie. I mean the 1988 cult classic movie we all know and love. The social issues presented in Heathers are still relevant today and gives an exaggerated but insightful thought to the phrase “people will do anything to be famous.” Well, in this case, “popular.” This story follows Veronica Sawyer (Winona Ryder) and J.D (Christian Slater) as they commit one murder after another in an attempt to turn the social hierarchy of their high school on its head.

2. "Moonrise Kingdom"

If you’re not familiar with Wes Anderson’s famous stop-motion films like “Fantastic Mr. Fox” or his new movie “Isle of Dogs,” don’t fret, because you can get the same sense of animation and offbeat humor in “Moonrise Kingdom.” Most of Anderson’s films have quirky characters and color schemes that keep your attention throughout the entire film. Moonrise Kingdom uses bright colors while each character is somewhat dull and monotonous, but in a good way that makes every line a wisecrack. Follow the residents of New Penzance as they engage in an island-wide search for two 12-year-old sweethearts that decided to run away together.

1. "Goodfellas"

“Goodfellas” takes you through the life of Henry Hill, an Italian-American who worked his way into becoming a gangster in the mob. Along with an incredible script written by Nicholas Pileggi and Martin Scorsese, this masterpiece contains some of the greatest moments of cinematic history that you just can’t miss.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
