As some of us settle in to that late 20s/early 30s bracket, we might start clearing our shelves of the flicks we haven't watched in the last two years. It's like the "hanger test" for your movie collection. While sifting through some Hollywood classics, a few Best Picture nominees, and oodles of comedies that are guaranteed to make you laugh no matter how many times you've watched them, you'll probably come across a few titles that bring you careening back to your most awkward, angsty years.
Ah yes, if you were anything like me in high school, you wore black band t-shirts, listened to sad, sad emo music and had a lot of feelings. And those feelings needed to be validated by your so-hip-it-hurts collection of records, ticket stubs, and of course, movies. How else would you prove to your MySpace friends how deep you really were if you didn't have the perfect list of music, books, and movies to prove the depth of your emotions?
Take a journey back into your teen Dark Ages, won't you? Some of these movies are keepers, and some of these just have to go. Happy cleaning!

'The Boondock Saints'
One of the worst movies you ever owned. And yet, everyone you were friends with thought it was sooooooo cool. The guys you dated probably had the movie poster in their room, too.
