25 Movies That You Need To Stop Procrastinating About Watching

It's impossible not to have a backlog of films we will eventually experience at some point. Procrastination takes its toll and we eventually have a watchlist that swells up to hundreds of movies. 

Members of a popular internet movie forum recently weighed in on the films still in their shrinkwrap on their shelves and cluttering up their watchlists that they need to stop procrastinating, clear their schedule, grab some popcorn, and watch.

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

Don't wait until it's 2001st on your watchlist to check out Kubrick's groundbreaking sci-fi epic about an astronaut guided by a slightly sinister computer.

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

How can you sit on Shawshank? It's Morgan Freeman narrating a Stephen King adaptation. That man has a voice like slowly melting molasses; I could listen to him read the phone book.

Parasite (2019)

Bong Joon-ho's pitch-black satire about a poor family worming their way into the lives of a wealthy household is as thought-provoking as it is utterly brilliant. There's a reason it won an Oscar; the film burrows into your brain.

The Handmaiden (2016)

Oldboy director Park Chan-wook's erotically charged psychological thriller about a Korean conman's and a young pickpocket's elaborate plot to steal the inheritance of a wealthy Japanese heiress is Wook's most thoughtful and often disturbing film.

The Godfather (1972)

Marlon Brando's Oscar-winning performance as the Corleone family's aging patriarch, Vito Corleone, is worth your time alone. The Godfather really is an offer you can't refuse.

Barry Lyndon (1975)

Kubrick's visually stunning period drama about an Irish rogue who climbs the social ladder in 18th-century Europe is one film you should stop saying no, nay, never, no more to.
