20 Movies Turning 20 in 2020 | go! | Globe

Two decades later and these oldies are still goodies

There’s just something about closing out a full decade that triggers excitement and nostalgia. Seen in the likes of the start-of-the-decade-versus-the-end-of-the-decade challenge and 10-year anniversary throwbacks likely already littering your timelines, looking back’s really just half the fun. And here, we journey to the year 2000 to revisit the state of cinema from another noteworthy chapter: the end of the last millennium.

Has it really been that long since we witnessed a young Taylor Momsen play Cindy Lou opposite Jim Carrey in How the Grinch Stole Christmas? Yes, it has. The same goes for Boaz Yakin’s Remember the Titans starring Denzel Washington, M. Night Shyamalan’s iconic The Sixth Sense and Cameron Crowe’s Academy Award winning flick Almost Famous regardless of how it feels like these premiered not too long ago.

Ahead, 20 other memorable movies from 2000 that—you guessed it—will turn 20 in the coming year. Get ready to get a little sentimental (and feel a little old).
