Welcome to our updated guide to the 300 Essential Movies To Watch Now, which features incredible must-watch movies from the 1920s to today! In our annual refresh, we're sticking with the list's original vision as a definitive source of movie guidance and education for all ages and stages, whether you're a seasoned film buff or just starting out, while reflecting new trends and significant movies uncovered over the past year.
