When this poll (hopefully) becomes a live poll I hope to have made up my mind between Dead Poets Society and Good Will Hunting!

I suggest The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (2005).
It has great lessons on living life, growing up, forgiveness, making mistakes, and doing the right thing.  But it's your list, ilyas Kutlu, so it's up to you.  :)

Sure, it's up to you - as you can see by my username I'm a huge fan, but then again I'm weird.  :D

It is very difficult to choose for me, there are 3 movies I would choose, Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society and The 400 blows.
What does it say about The Breakfast Club? it's a great movie that I think fits in the poll labels

I like the list, but if you want it to be a poll you should remove the Turkish part of the title. If you need to, you can make another list with Turkish text.

And your question would work better in singular form:

What is the best educational movie?

I realize you can't edit your first post here. What I mean is you can edit the text in your list here:

Hi ilyas. I know you've been around for a while but I don't think that I've said hi before so welcome to the poll board. : )

 I really like this poll. There are a lot of good films but my vote will go to 'Half Nelson.'

I agree with Peter that the question would be most precise in the singular (What is the best educational movie?) because voters can only vote for one, of course. I would also suggest changing  "educational movie" to "movie about education." An educational movie is any film that teaches the viewers something specific but you're asking about movies about teaching, teachers, and students, so I think that edit would make the question more precise, too. I really do like this poll, btw, especially because I'm a teacher. Oh, and I really like the title. : )
