It’s graduation season and, in honor of this time of year, the Roundtable of Tyler Smith (@morelessons), Jeremiah Panhorst (@jpanhorst) and Zack Brooks (@brooksza) count down the Top 10 All-Time High School Movies!

Join us LIVE on Wednesday, June 5th at 9pm ET / 6pm PT.

Watch the Show on YouTube.      RSVP for the LIVE event.


Tonight’s Post Show Recaps Movie Roundtable is Top 10 All-Time High School Movies. Tyler Smith (@morelessons), Jeremiah Panhorst (@jpanhorst) and Zach Brooks (@brooksza) count down their favorite high school movies and compile their three lists into one overall top 10. Since it’s the end of the school year, the Roundtable felt like it was fitting to discuss the top 10 high school movies. They each compiled their own top 10 list and through a super-complex formula they pulled together an aggregate list. As always on Post Show Recaps, we want to hear from you. Tweet your comments, ideas and movie snubs using the hashtag #PSRecaps. You can subscribe to all of the Post Show Recaps shows by going to http://www.Postshowrecaps.com/itunes

Discussion questions:

  • What are some of the key elements of a high school movie?
  • What is the difference between high school and teen movies?
  • Do you think high school movies are generational? Would someone who graduated from high school this month have the same list?
