Get Ready To Feel Old. These Movies Are Turning 25 This Year

It's throwback Thursday, all the way to 1990! These classics made growing up in the '90s awesome!

Some people truly cannot believe the '90s are over – or that they were more than a decade ago.

Alas, the decade that brought forth the Internet, the end of the Cold War, boy bands, girl power and Friends and Titanic has become history.

And if you’re one of those people who are in denial about it – or maybe you just like drowning in nostalgia – here’s a list of popular movies that came out in 1990, marking this year as their silver anniversary because they’re going to be 25 years old.

Bring on the bubblegum and single flavored popcorn!

1) Home Alone

Yes, it’s been that long since Kevin McCallister wished us filthy animals a “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!” (But we know everyone will still watch any of this epic series over and over again.)

2) Edward Scissorhands 

Tim Burton's classic where Johnny Depp portrays an incomplete man flawlessly is so touching, it made your heart melt even though he has hands made of steel. 

3) Die Hard 2

Two years after the debut of part one, John McClaine comes back. We’ve lost count of how many times Bruce Willis tried to die hard, but this remains a classic in the hearts of many action-film lovers. Yippee ki-yay, you-know-whats!

4) Pretty Woman

The hearts of many melted when Richard Gere found true love with Julia Roberts as a hooker. My my, we’ve come a long way when it comes to rom-coms. But classics like this are timeless, and way better a watch any of that Love Actually shenanigans. Notice how she’s listening to music. Yes this movie is THAT old.

5) Ghost

Speaking of the feels you get from romcoms, before Demi Moore was anything, she was playing hookey with Patrick Swayze’s ghost. Doesn’t that send chills down your spine?

6) Back to the Future III

Just when the world is starting to wonder how many things the Back to the Future trilogy nailed about the future, you realized Marty McFly’s adventure ended, or started, exactly 25 years ago. Mind = blown.

7) Problem Child

This movie is probably the reason why people from Generation X would be hesitant about having kids. Junior is every parents' nightmare. But he still made us laugh quite a bit.

8) The Witches

Based on Roald Dahl’s book, this was just as entertaining as Matilda and the more recent adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Oh how time flies…

9) Look Who’s Talking Too

After Kirstie Alley and John Travolta’s adorable love-baby-comedy romance story, where Bruce Willis played a baby, they made part two because he needed a little sister. Bruce Willis trying to potty train made quite the memory for us.

10) Earnest Goes to Jail

Guess what Vern, it’s Ernest! To be more precise, it’s a bumbling Ernest P. Worrell going on yet another giggle-inducing journey. How many Ernest movies did you watch? Is it time for an Ernest marathon? Oh yes!
