First, let’s break down what a millennial is. The word “Millennial” refers to the people born from 1980-2000. They can also sometimes called the “Generation Y”. A fun fact about Millenials is that they were the first generation in history that grew up totally immersed in a world of digital technology which has affected their identities and cultural/social attitudes.
Millennials were really known for being adventurous because most of them reported a desire to visit every continent and travel abroad as much as they could, according to a study that was made a few years back. But also when dining out, they’re often in search of something exotic, adventuresome, memorable to explore during the experience.
The movies listed below are a small portion of the millennial generation’s most popular movies, which were not only watched once but twice and more. Millennials and today’s generation also know all these movies due to the major popularity that they have gained.
If you haven’t seen it, you’ve heard of the movie. Godzilla took the cinemas by storm in 2014.
It had an opening week of $93,188,384 which was an astounding number in that time. This is a monster film and Godzilla, King of the Monsters arises from the sea. But just because Godzilla is a monster, doesn’t mean he’s a bad one. The humans rely on Godzilla to protect humanity from violent adversaries and then move towards the final battleground which is central San Francisco.

Let’s continue with one that is still talked about. Titanic is a mix of a disaster and epic film romance. It was written, co-produced, and co-edited by James Cameron in 1997. It caught the public’s attention because it was written by a boy under the age of 20, which amazed lots of important people. The film’s impact on the two main roles (Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet ) was amazing in their careers. The 3D version of titanic released in April 2012 earned around $343.6 million worldwide. This release was why the film was the second film to gross more than $2 billion worldwide.

Friday is a 1995 comedy film which was directed by F. Gary Gray and written by Mark Jordan and O’Shea Jackson. Friday received a lot of positive reviews on their acting performance and writing. It was a huge success grossing over $27 million worldwide, which also inspired many internet memes ( one of them being DAAAMMN and Bye Felicia) and pop-cultural references. Friday increased the representation of the hood into the field of comedy and achieved box office success at the same time. It also didn’t just attach an element of comedy to depictions of everyday life in black neighborhoods. It issued a new genre — the hood comedy.
Bring it on
It is a teen cheerleading comedy film which was directed by Peyton Reed and written by Jessica Bendinger. When it was released in theaters in North America on August 25, 200, it earned around $90 million, and ever since then, it has become a cult classic. The issue of the white appropriation of black culture is an important one for kids to understand. It is a shame that this smart and sassy movie has to include a few unnecessarily raunchy humor. Otherwise, this movie would be a great movie for kids, because it raises some important points and it is a lot of fun.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
It is a fantasy movie released on 4 November 2001, which was directed by Chris Columbus and distributed on Warner Bros, which was based on J.K Rowling’s novel of 1997, which had the same name. When it was released in the United Kingdom and the United States cinemas, it became a big success grossing over $973 million at the box office and earning over $1 billion subsequent re-release.
It was the highest-grossing movie of 2001 and the second growing film of all time while also being nominated by many awards. Not even the film but also the book still has a lot of passionate following across the world.
There are many more movies that Millenials know just by looking at the poster of it, but unfortunately, our list would be a little too long and not that interesting to read anymore. So we tried to put only the most known ones which are still popular among the gen z generation.
