10 Must-Watch Movies That Turned 25 This Year

My Girl

My Girl

Many of us are still crying two and a half decades after this movie was in theaters. With a sentimental look into childhood adventures and just the right amount of tugging on heartstrings, My Girl is just as potent today as it was in 1991. Many people can tell you exactly where they were when they first saw this devastating movie and experienced "all the feels."

Fried Green Tomatoes

Fried Green Tomatoes

Fried Green Tomatoes is a beautifully clever look at the bonds we are able to form with loved ones. This period piece is best watched with a group of close friends, because you're gonna want multiple shoulders to cry on by the time the movie ends.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Before James Cameron sank the Titanic or created an alien planet filled with blue people, he gave us a sequel that was actually better than the original. Even 25 years later, the visual effects in Terminator 2 hardly look dated at all. This movie is required viewing for any science fiction fans!

Hook

Hook

If you were a kid in the '90s (or if you had a kid at this time), you probably have a soft spot for Hook. Steven Spielberg's spin on a classic tale has enough action to hold children's attention while also making parents a little teary-eyed as Peter Pan struggles with growing old.

Point Break

Point Break

Don't confuse this classic with the remake that came out recently, because the original Point Break is one of the defining movies of the '90s. The premise of a surfing FBI agent sounds a bit odd, but Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze are able to pull it off nicely. And who could forget crazy Gary Busey at the top of his game?

The Addams Family

The Addams Family

This adaptation of the '60s television show managed to capture all of the original humor and add an additional dash of fright! For many, this movie offers the only versions of Morticia, Gomez, and Uncle Fester they’ve ever known. The film became a smash hit and led to a sequel in 1993.

Father of the Bride

Father of the Bride

It takes a lot of confidence to remake a classic movie, but the 1991 version of Father of the Bride surpasses the 1950 original! This touching film is about letting your children grow up, even if you want to keep them young forever. We are all nostalgic for a simpler time, and this movie captures this idea beautifully.

The Silence of the Lambs

The Silence of the Lambs

This was such a chilling thriller that it earned its place in pop culture's history books. The Silence of the Lambs is one of only three movies to have ever picked up the “Big Five” at the Academy Awards, meaning that it sweeped the votes for Best Picture, Actor in a Leading Role, Actress in a Leading Role, Directing, and Writing. Anthony Hopkins is only onscreen for a fraction of the film’s runtime, but he was able to create one of the most terrifying characters of all time.

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast

Disney proved that it was back in the animation game with 1989's The Little Mermaid. When Beauty and the Beast was released in 1991, the company proved that it was there to stay. With its complex characters, catchy songs, and gorgeous animation work, this film is arguably the best adaptation of "a tale as old as time."

Boyz n the Hood

Boyz n the Hood

It's no surprise that Boy n the Hood picked up a couple of Oscar nominations in 1991. This gripping movie depicts the struggles of three friends as they grow up in an impoverished Southern California neighborhood, offering a glimpse into their trials, tribulations, and victories.
