14. 'Everybody Wants Some!!' (2016)

For this "spiritual sequel" to his spirit-of-'76 classic Dazed and Confused, Richard Linklater captured another turning-point moment in the lives of some young Texans. Instead of the last day of high school in our nation's bicentennial year, we ride shotgun with some baseball players during the first weekend of college circa 1980. Over a drunken stretch of days, a group of jocks and other early arrivals play scarily aggressive games of ping pong, attempt stoned telepathy, share favorite Twilight Zone episodes, line dance, slam dance and otherwise get to know each other while trying to figure out who they'll be for the next four years. It's rowdy fun even as Linklater keeps offering reminders that the good times won't last forever. KP
