Nothing gave us more pleasure as a kid than getting to go down to the local Extravision and spend a good half hour trying to pick what movie we were going to watch that weekend.

The promise of popcorn and the latest Disney VHS was almost too much to bare sometimes, and many a fight was had when your sibling didn't want to rent the same movie as you. 

Now though, film education charity Into Film has released a list of the 50 Must See Movies Before You Grow Up, and having this as a youngun would have made movie rental time a LOT easier.
