Do you ever sit with your friends and question what movie you should watch? I've spent hours with my friends trying to find a good movie to watch and I realize that nothing beats throwback movies.

Here are my top 10 throwback movies perfect for your girl nights.

1. "Sleepover" (2004)

This movie is the perfect throwback to your 16-year-old life. I lived through this movie when I was a teen and it's perfectly paired with popcorn!

2. "AquaMarine" (2006)

You're lying if you're saying that you don't love stories about mermaids. Who doesn't love a good throwback with JoJo?

3. "Stick It" (2006)

Many of you may not know what this is, many may. This was my absolute favorite movie. It's about a struggling teen who walked out on gymnastic's worlds. She is sent back to gymnastics school because of her misconduct.

4. "10 Things I Hate About You" (1999)

BEST MOVIE EVER.

5. "What A Girl Wants" (2003)

Who doesn't love a little Amanda Bynes? This was one of her best movies and if you haven't watched it, you're missing out!

We've all had that ex we would love to just kick. If one of your girlfriends is going through a breakup, this is the PERFECT movie to watch.

7. "Clueless" (1995)

Who doesn't love a classic movie? Filled with hilarious humor and charm, put on your face mask and do your nails while you watch this movie.

8. "13 Going On 30" (2004)

This movie will have you bring up your old fashions books. This movie is perfect for any Girl Boss.

9. "She's The MAN" (2006)

Who doesn't love an Amanda Bynes throwback?

10. "Ice Princess" (2005)

This movie will have you running straight to your local ice rink trying to do a triple just like her.

We all scroll through the radio stations in the car every once in a while, whether its because we lost signal to our favorite one or we are just bored with the same ol' songs every day. You know when you're going through and you hear a song where you're just like "I forgot this existed!" and before you know it, you're singing every word? Yeah, me too. Like, 95% of the time. If you're like me and LOVE some good throwback music, here's a list of songs from every genre that have gotten lost in time, but never truly forgotten (all gifs from Giphy).

1. "Big Pimpin'" - Jay-Z ft. UGK

Jay-Z gives us a ballad about, you guessed it, pimpin' big in NYC. Jay-Z's rhymes paired with that catchy beat is just bound to get stuck in your head for the rest of the night.

2. "Mr. Brightside" - The Killers


If you say that you don't know any of the words to this song, you're the worst kind of person... a liar. This classic has left stamps of its lyrics on 99% of the population, and has a forever spot in my soul.

3. "Lose Yourself" - Eminem


This song always leaves me feeling like I could sign a record deal and launch my career as a rap/hip-hop legend... and craving spaghetti.

4. "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American) - Toby Keith


A ballad for the ages that brings the overly patriotic American badass out of all of us.

5. "Drop It Like It's Hot" - Snoop Dogg ft. Pharrell Williams

SNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP!

6. "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" - Green Day

This song makes me want to walk down a lonely road, preferably a dark one, and reflect on all of my life choices. Nevertheless, it's still a fantastic song.

7. "My Boo" - Ghost Town DJs

The "running man" has brought this one back, and I couldn't be happier.

8. "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" - Panic! At The Disco

If your friends don't "chime in" by screaming the chorus at the top of their lungs in the car with you, it's time to leave them there and find new friends. Also, did anyone ever tell the groom what his bride has been up to?

9. "Semi-Charmed Life" - Third Eye Blind


A life anthem for all of us. Third Eye Blind has recently released another album. My inner child is tingling.

10. "Baby Got Back" - Sir Mix A Lot



Nicki Minaj sampled this in her song "Anaconda" in 2014. Take a minute to realize that some people have heard that, but not the REAL jam that the sample came from. Now, cry.

11. "Sk8er Boi" - Avril Lavigne


Sk8er boi, you would be good enough for me. It's what's on the inside that counts.

12. "Milkshake" - Kelis

It's day 4. The milkshake is curdled in the yard. There are still no boys to be found.

13. "Get Low" - Lil Jon ft. Ying Yang Twinz


The real question is which version is better: Lil Jon's or Sandra Bullock's?

14. "Hey Ya!" - Outkast


You've heard the song, but have you ever really listened to or analyzed the lyrics that you knew by heart by the age of 10? Do it.

15. "Check Yes Or No" - George Strait


You don't have to be a country lover to know this song. My hardcore rocker/screamo friend even knows the chorus. Don't try and tell me you don't. I don't like liars.

16. "Ride Wit Me" - Nelly


"Ayyyyye, must be the monaaayyy!" - frequently screamed lyric

17. "Hollaback Girl" - Gwen Stefani


This song made all of the shit B-A-N-A-N-A-S when it came on. Still does.

18. "I'm Like A Bird" - Nelly Furtado


If "Whoa, Nelly!" wasn't the album of your childhood, you may want to have a conversation with your parents. Another great product from this album was "Turn Off The Light", both of which were top 10 hits.

19. "Pony" - Ginuwine


Even though I can't hear this song without seeing Channing Tatum's half naked body in my mind, it's still one of my favorite songs to hear. Instant day brightener when I hear that funky beat at the beginning.

20. "U Got It Bad" - Usher


Usher made me fall in love with a person I met at the grocery store with this one. Beautiful lyrics, beautifully sung.

21. "Cleanin' Out My Closet" - Eminem


As sad as these lyrics are, Eminem really hit this one out of the park.

22. "Poison" - Bel Biv Devoe


Why would you kiss her if she is poison? That just doesn't sound very smart,

23. "Gangstas Paradise" - Coolio


10/10 would recommend listening to Weird Al's parody of this song.

24. "No Diggity" - Blackstreet ft. Dr. Dre and Queen Pen


As great as Anna Kendrick is at rapping this song, nothing tops the original.

25. "No Scrubs" - TLC


This song has had some girls accepting nothing less than the best since its release in 1999.

26. "Gin & Juice" - Snoop Dogg


Snoop D-O-double G cranked this bad boy out in 1993, before I was born. Regardless, I still know every word.

27. "It Was A Good Day" - Ice Cube


The first time I heard this may have been on Grand Theft Auto, but that doesn't mean that it isn't a great song.

28. "What's Your Fantasy" - Ludacris


Another song that I knew most of the lyrics to that I probably shouldn't have at a young age.

29. "Thriller" - Michael Jackson


Dubbed as the "King of Pop," MJ was a hero to many. Despite some allegations made against him, his records continue to sell and be listened to across the world.

30. "Wannabe" - Spice Girls


The Spice Girls gave their men some basic guidelines in this staple song from the 90's. If you know the story from A-Z, you are probably a lyrical genius.

31. "It Wasn't Me" - Shaggy


Bro, she caught you in the action. It was probably most definitely you.

32. "Everybody (Backstreets Back)" - Backstreet Boys


They really were back, and we all wish they had stayed.

33. "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" - Aerosmith


If anyone every legitimately sings this to me, I WILL cry.

34. "Welcome to the Black Parade" - My Chemical Romance


Nostalgia. Nostalgia everywhere.

35. "Misery Business" - Paramore


I can't tell if I want to be Hayley Williams or be ON Hayley Williams. I'd be okay with either. #girlcrush

36. "Steal My Sunshine" - Len


This feel good song makes me want to rip open a popsicle and ride my bicycle around town.

37. "Fly" - Sugar Ray


As repetitive as this is, this song will never get old.

38. "Waiting on the World to Change" - John Mayer


Yes John, we're still waiting too.

39. "Song 2" - Blur

WOO-HOO!

40. "Buddy Holly" - Weezer


Weezer may have hated this song, but we are glad they recorded it.

41. "Wonderwall" - Oasis


I think millennials were born knowing the lyrics to this song.

42. "Sweet Caroline" - Neil Diamond


BA BA BAAAAAAA!

43. "No Rain" - Blind Melon


Maybe it's just me who is obsessed with this song, but if you haven't heard it, I highly recommend.

44. "Champagne Supernova" -Oasis


Another song that I truly believe that millennials were born knowing the lyrics to. Coincidence that they are both by Oasis?

45. "99 Problems" - Jay-Z


I have 99 problems, and this playlist solves all of them.

My Predictions For 'Spider-Man: Far From Home'

Here are my expectations for the movie.

16
views

There are some spoilers for 'Avengers: Endgame' in this article, but the spoiler ban has also been lifted today, May 6. So, read at your own discretion.

On May 6, I woke up to a new 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' trailer, and of course I have to talk about it. The trailer opens on Spider-Man looking at an Iron Man mural. The movie was speculated to take place after 'Avengers: Endgame', and this trailer confirmed that.

At the beginning of the trailer, we see Spider-Man talking to Happy Hogan about how much he misses his mentor. I already know that I'll be shedding tears for Peter within the first few minutes of the movie. Now, say what you will, but I think that Spider-Man is arguably one of the strongest heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. First, his parents die, then he loses his uncle Ben, and now he's lost Tony Stark, another father figure. Peter has so much emotional baggage, I'm amazed at how he seems to stay happy all the time.

It's mentioned a few times in the trailer that there is a need for a new Iron Man. That dialogue is even said by Spider-Man himself. This leads me to believe that it might be up to Peter to fill that role. We even see him put on a prototype Iron-Man glove. While I don't know if this is right for him, it's just a hunch that I have. But if I'm right, it'd be cool to see him and Sam Wilson, the new Captain America, team up for a movie in the future.

One thing that I am curious about, is the scene where Spider-Man takes off a pair of glasses and says "Oh my God." These glasses are reminiscent of Tony Stark's, so I wonder if that will play into Spider-Man becoming the next Iron Man?

We're also introduced to Mysterio more in this trailer, after only getting one line from him in the first trailer. He comes from Earth, but from a different universe. It's explained by Nick Fury that "the snap" created a hole in the universe, which is something that I'd like more of an explanation on. Was it Thanos' snap? Or Iron Man's? The idea of a multiverse will probably be explored, as well.

Since the announcement of Mysterio in this movie, I thought that he was going to be the villain in 'Far From Home.' This trailer leads me to speculate that he still might be the bad guy, but fronts that he's a good guy, seeking help from Spider-Man.

As for MJ and Peter, we might see them advance in their relationship. There's a scene in the trailer where Peter confides in Mysterio, saying that he just wants to tell MJ how he feels. We get a preview of this scene, but it doesn't go as planned. Instead, MJ guesses that Peter is really Spider-Man, which is alarming, but exciting. Only Ned Leeds, Peter's best friend, knows who is really behind the mask. Maybe this will help MJ and Peter further their relationship, since telling someone that you're a superhero takes a lot of trust.

Another thing that I'm excited about is the dynamic between Nick Fury and Spider-Man. Before this movie, they had never met. Maybe Nick will become a new father figure for Peter? Or will help Nick in a new Avengers plan?

I cannot wait for July 2nd to roll around. The Spider-Man movies are more lighthearted, and I always have a fun time watching them. Spider-Man is my favorite character in the MCU, and I'm never stressed out when I watch Spider-Man movies, unlike Captain America or Avengers ones. I'm excited to see where this movie leads the MCU next.
