Top Movies Turning 20….WARNING: Will Make You Feel Old!

Now some of these may be hard and frankly a little painful to believe that they first entered our lives wayyy back in 1993. Doesn’t seem that long ago right? Well sadly that was 20 years ago and it’s actually amazing just how much we still love these films even now, just goes to show just how amazing they are.

Take a little trip down memory lane with us as we’ve picked out some of out top films that are turning 20 years old this year…enjoy!

Jurassic Park


American science fiction adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg. It is based on the 1990 novel of the same name by Michael Crichton. It stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, Ariana Richards, Joseph Mazzello, Martin Ferrero and Bob Peck. The film centers on the fictional Isla Nublar near Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast, where a billionaire philanthropist and a small team of genetic scientists have created a wildlife park of cloned dinosaurs.

Free Willy

When a boy learns that a beloved killer whale is to be killed by the aquarium owners, the boy risks everything to free the whale. Any film with huge trained animals in is an instant winner in our eyes. Such a classic.

Mrs Doubtfire

After a bitter divorce, an actor disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend secret time with his children held in custody by his Ex with some pretty interesting results. We must have seen this film…ermm..well too many time to count really. Great film to show off some amazing tallents of Robin Williams and a great family film.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Jack Skellington, king of Halloweentown, discovers Christmas Town, but doesn’t quite understand the concept. Bored with his Halloween routine, Jack Skellington longs to spread Christmas joy, but his antics put Santa and the holiday in jeopardy! Amazing creation of a film this one. A real must watch!

Cool Runnings

Based on the true story of the First Jamaican bobsled team trying to make it to the winter Olympics. we actually know someone who pretty much knew every line in this film…it’s that good.

Carlito’s Way

A Puerto-Rican ex-con, just released from prison, pledges to stay away from drugs and violence despite the pressure around him and lead on to a better life outside of NYC.
