I’m still young right?: Movies That Turn 25 Years Old This Year

I remember a time when I thought “wow, I can’t believe that movie is 10 years old!”. As time has passed and we all have gotten older, it’s crazy but movies from our childhood are now turning 25 years old! Here is a list of movies turning 25 this year. That’s right, these movies are now old enough to rent a car! It’s funny, some of these movies will shock you with the fact that they are 25 years old, while others make you say “that movie is only 25 years old? I thought it was way older”.¬† Let us know your thoughts on the list. Enjoy!   Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles *This is apparently the official trailer for this movie 25 years ago. I guess they hadn’t done the voice recording yet because the dialogue and voices are completely different from the movie.   Pretty Woman   Ghost   Edward Scissorhands   Dances With Wolves   Home Alone   Goodfellas   Yeah, 25 years seems about right.

Also how different (and by that I mean how much worse) would the movie Wild Wild West¬†have been had Will Smith not been in it? Yes, Will Smith passed up The Matrix to do Wild Wild West. While, this move did not hurt Will Smith’s career at all, you can make the argument it was probably the best thing to ever happen to Keanu Reeves.   Molly Ringwald as Vivian Ward in Pretty Woman It’s hard to picture anyone but Julia Roberts in this role but Molly Ringwald …
