7 Classic 90s And 2000s Movies You Should Watch

A list of some super iconic movies everyone should watch at least once in their life.

7 Classic 90s And 2000s Movies You Should Watch

I love a good movie, and I'm sure you do, too. So to make sure that you're getting the best out of your time in front of the television, here's a list of some classic movies from the late 90s and early 2000s that are must-sees, no matter the situation.

1. Mean Girls


This movie isn't your average teen movie. Lindsey Lohan stars as Cady Heron, a former homeschooled teenager who lived in Africa now struggles to associate herself with different cliques in her new all-American high school. The plot has proven to be both insanely funny and catchy, and it's a cult classic that anyone will recognize.

2. The Matrix


A film definitely ahead of its time. It's a staple for a simple "bad guy vs. good guy" movie with a technological and futuristic twist, and it's been a brain twister since the moment it first came out.

3. Forrest Gump


A movie seriously like no other. It's difficult to even explain the genre, but the story revolves around a man named Gump who journeys his life while remaining an honest and down-to-earth man. You'll find yourself laughing hysterically and crying nonstop within a short timespan.

4. 13 Going On 30

I know what you're thinking: another one of those stupid body-switch movies? Yes and no, but if I were to ask you to only watch one of those movies for the rest of your life, it would be this one. Seriously, it's funny, a little cheesy, and entertaining.

5. A Cinderella Story


I have no guilt including this movie. Yes, it's a standard high school romance. Do I still enjoy it? Maybe. Honestly it's a classic. So you need to at least watch it once to get it over with. Trust me; you'll be coming back again and again.

6. Clueless


This movie is a walking music video, but you know what? It works. It's clever while still remaining true to its teen movie tendencies as we see shallow, smart, social Cher wreck her high school into pieces. Plus, she finds herself caught up in a love triangle spiraling out of control.

7. Home Alone

This is probably my favorite movie in this list. It keeps you on the edge since it's somewhat realistic and not at the same time. The story revolves around an 8-year-old named Kevin who is left alone while his family is out for vacation, and you get to see how he turns his house into a war zone as two robbers attempt to break in.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
