Yardbarker Logo By Jeff Mezydlo of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 26: While it's somewhat difficult to define "Generation X", traditional thinking is describing someone part of that sect having been born from roughly 1965 to 1980. Movies from the 1980s, '90s, and even 2000s have encompassed the lifestyle of a Gen-Xer. Slackers, latchkeys, and the disenfranchised, while also trying to change the world at the same time.It's also the generation of entrepreneurs and DINKS. The post-punks, metalheads, and grunge fans who spent hours watching MTV. Much of that has been captured on film. Here are 25 of the better movies that defined, or at least do an above-average job of explaining the Gen X movement.
