I was looking through movies deciding what to watch. What about Fight Club! Man, this movie was actually a fair while ago, wasn’t it. Wait – 1999? It’s 15 years old!
That’s one way to suddenly feel really old.
So I thought why not remember some other ‘classics’ from 15 years ago – movies you didn’t realize were just THAT OLD!!
An insomniac office worker looking for a way to change his life crosses paths with a devil-may-care soap maker and they form an underground fight club that evolves into something much, much more…
The Sixth Sense.
I remember being about 15 years old when this came out. It was the first Mature/15+ movie I’d ever seen at the cinema, and even though it seems innocent movie now, I was crapping myself at the time!
I see….Dead People!
I’m actually sad that The Matrix is so old now. Kids these days probably haven’t even heard of it!
“A computer hacker learns from mysterious rebels about the true nature of his reality and his role in the war against its controllers.”
That was so bad-ass when I was a teenager.
Another movie I wasn’t *technically* allowed to watch back then but somehow managed to get into 😉
“Four teenage boys enter a pact to lose their virginity by prom night.”
Is he really doing THAT with that pie??
Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace
Oh dear. Has it really been 15 years? Yep.
“Two Jedi Knights escape a hostile blockade to find allies and come across a young boy who may bring balance to the Force, but the long dormant Sith resurface to reclaim their old glory.”
The Blair Witch Project
You either loved this one or hated it. Some people were terrified and some were bored by it.
I wasn’t scared, of course.. 😉
“Three film students vanish after traveling into a Maryland forest to film a documentary on the local Blair Witch legend, leaving only their footage behind.”
Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
The second movie in the series which spawned a whole lot of Mike Myers impersonaters all through my high school.
“Dr. Evil is back…and has invented a new time machine that allows him to go back to the 60’s and steal Austin Powers’s mojo, inadvertently leaving him “shagless”.”
