11 Movies Every English Major Should See At Least Once

Watch these movies and you'll graduate "seen 'em cum laude." Luckily for you, they are all available on Amazon Video, included with an Amazon Prime Student membership!

So. Much. Reading. And you just hit page 100. Take a break from highlighting to check out one of these movies:

1. Because deep, philosophical arguments with your TA (and why you're right) don't end once you graduate, check out The End of the Tour.

2. With a quick wit and critical mind, the protagonist of Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet, is essentially an English major.

3. Saving all of your reading for the week before finals may set you up for a self-fulfilling prophecy, but you're no Macbeth.

4. Thinking about using your English major to become a writer? The Words would like to have some...well, words with you.

5. To see how the critical analysis skills you're learning don't degrade with age and memory, watch Mr. Holmes.

6. Whether you had to see it in high school or in college, Apocalypse Now is an English major's rite of passage.

7. If critically analyzing and presenting different perspectives is what gets you A's on finals, consider Arranged an A+.

8. Struggling to articulate a unique viewpoint? Take some notes from Prince Among Slaves, which does it masterfully.

9. A Clockwork Orange is one of the rare required-reading novels that also became a critically acclaimed film.

10. Feel like you're crying "witchcraft" when the professor thinks your A-worthy paper is a C+? You'll relate toThe Witch.

11. English majors often have to bend reality to make an argument work. The Man in the High Castle takes this to the next level.
