Do you ever find yourself on Netflix with nothing to watch? I have the perfect solution for you, so pull up a chair, invite some friends over, and watch the  1961 classic movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” Inspired by the novel by Truman Capote, the classic movie follows young Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) on her journey through New York City as she plays messenger for the notorious ex-gang member Sally Tomato while simultaneously  searching for a handsome and wealthy man to marry. Still debating if you should watch this or not?  Well if you like classic movies, are aspiring to be someone or something, or just looking for something new, this is the movie for you.

Are you a fan of mystery/ comedy movies? If so, then you should watch the iconic movie “Clue” which was based on the board game. This 1985 classic movie focuses on mystery and murder in a comical way. While watching the movie, you can join the characters as they search for the murderer amongst them. The cast of the movie consists of some amazing actresses and actors including the amazing Tim Curry. In this case of “Who done it?”, it’s a race around the clock to find the murderer before he or she finds their next victim.  The best part of the movie is its element of surprise, depending on where you view the movie, there is a different ending chosen from three alternatives. 

Every teenage girl awaits the day she turns 16, with the big party and all the attention. That’s what Samantha wished for in the 1980’s movie “16 Candles.”  In the movie, all her dreams are shattered when she wakes up on her 16th birthday and realizes her family is so concerned with her sister’s wedding that they completely forgot about her birthday. What else could go wrong, right? Our main character also has to shake a nerdy freshman who has affection for her deeper than the sea, and try to win over her extremely hot upperclassmen crush.
