Who Doesn’t Love the 90s?


 

We know that there was no internet in the 90s, but other than that the 90s was a pretty great era. The music, movies,books, and TV shows were great and these are our favorites!

 

Movies:

 

The 90s seemed to be like the decade of experimentation when it comes to movies. You have a great mix of big action blockbusters like “Speed” and “Jurassic Park”, cult classics in the making like “The Big Lebowski”, “Pulp Fiction”,  and “Fight Club” and the movies that defined a generation. Yes, we are talking about “Clueless” and anything with Freddie Prinze Junior in it. This was the era of emerging great directors like Tarantino when they were still finding their creative footing and making movies that we now can only think of as classics. If nothing else, the 90s made “The Titanic”, one of if not THE highest grossing film of all time. Who can possibly resist a young Leonardo Dicaprio?

Music:

The 90s music scene is synonymous with the words “Boy Band” and boy oh boy were they great! If you had never heard a Backstreet Boys or NSYNC song during that time, then you were probably living under a rock. Not to be outdone, the ladies fared just as well. The dueling queens of pop Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera dominated the airwaves and wormed their way into our hearts…really anyone from the Mickey Mouse Club.

 

Along with pop, the 90s was a great time for American punk rock. What had originally started on the other side of the pond quickly caught on in the 90s. With iconic bands like Blink 182, Green Day, Jimmy Eats World, and Bad Religion, you always had some kind of music you could jump around to and the music videos were pretty great too!

 

Who can forget Fountain of Wayne’s classic “Stacey’s Mom”?

Books:

 

While there a lot of great books that came out in the 90s, you know and we know the one that we all loved and read were the R.L. Stine “Goosebumps” series. It seems that we really just wanted a good scare that decade. This series was absolutely prolific, you could find these books EVERYWHERE. They were in bookstores, libraries, and even in elementary school libraries. The books were so great that they even became a hit TV series. We’re pretty sure that it’s because of these books that the night light business did so well in the 90s too.

 

TV Shows:

 

We miss the days of watching Zack Morrison and AC Slater on our TVs . The 90s was the decade of situational comedies for every age group. Friends and Seinfeld are examples of what a great ensemble of actors can do together with comedic chemistry at its best. These actors all were funny in their own way, and now that they’ve separated it just isn’t the same. The kids got in on the fun too with Boy Meets World, Saved By The Bell, and Family Matters.

 

If nothing else, the 90s can be encapsulated by the show Dawson’s Creek. With teen angst at its best, it kept people glued to their television screen and make names like Dawson and Pacey household names. That show WAS 90s from the story lines to the somewhat questionable fashion choices that defined the era.

All in all, entertainment in the 90s was pretty great all around. Yes, memories of MC Hammer and parachute pants included. As times move on, we must move with it, but we can always reminisce.
