Get some frosted tips and start worrying about Y2K.
There’s a reason all the late-'90s babies cling so proudly to their semi-fabricated memories of “the good old days.” Everyone can appreciate the merit of some '90s nostalgia. Perhaps it stems from a yearning for a time just before our world became so hyper-virtual: when drama went down in the mall instead of on social media. Lovers exchanged mix tapes rather than Spotify playlists, and hacker characters on the World Wide Web were more novelty than reality. (Julia Stiles’s character in Ghostwriter knew something we didn’t.)
Whether you’re seeking out the ironically analog feel of yesteryear, or just miss seeing everyone in windbreakers over a Sugar Ray soundtrack, there’s never a bad time to kick back with a good '90s flick. Luckily, Netflix has enough to make for a movie marathon so extensive, you’ll end up feeling worried about Y2K and consider frosted tips.
