Superbad is a thoughtful film about a bromance between two young men and their wacky attempts to commit date rape.

@Sharvil.Turbadkar, I get that. I agree. 8 Mile is a Gen X movie like Dazed and Confused is a Boomer movie, though. It's about the lives of those generations.

@Rob Kirby lol I just said it it’s not about the musicians life it’s about the fans and the audience who were shaped by the music at that time . Eminem defined my middle school and high school Early 00’s were filled with Eminem wannabes in my high school We were shaped by Eminem and other gen x artists like linkin park , jay z

@Sharvil.Turbadkar , I was born in October 1978. Most of the artists I grew up listening to were older Gen X. That doesn't change the fact 8 Mile is about a Gen Xers life. How do Millennials relate? I've never even seen Sid and Nancy and have no interest because their lives don't connect to mine.

There are 2 millennials, the older generation and the younger generation. You can't classify them both as part of the same group. For instance, I was born in 85, while X-Men and Spiderman etc were a staple of Saturday mornings, the younger millennial wasn't even born yet. When Juno, Superbad, Napoleon Dynamite came out I was in my late teens/ early 20s and the younger generation were around 10 and would not care for any of those.

Should be "Top 10 Depictions of Millennials" not "Top 10 Movies that Define Millennials", because the defining movies for Millennials are ones that influenced their childhood or teenage years or their young adult years. Stuff like the original "Batman" film from 1989, or Space Jam, or Jumanji, maybe the first Harry Potter film...."Toy Story" was actually a good fit.
