1995 doesn’t feel like it was so very long ago. If you were alive in that era, you probably still remember oohing and ahhing over Toy Story‘s CG-animated surfaces for the very first time, or meeting a brand new 007 in Pierce Brosnan. But in fact, you are wrong. 1995 really was that long ago. At least we still have some favorites of the era to take us back. Even if we’re now streaming them on iTunes instead of popping them into our VCRs.
We’re not saying these are the best films of 1995 — that’s a conversation for another time — but these are the ones that stuck with us. Some because they’ve become reliable favorites, some because they still feel remarkably fresh, and others because they’re so hilariously 1995, they couldn’t possibly have been made at any other time. Join us in revisiting 20 films turning 20 in 2015 after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
A few new details in the on-screen history and future of Batman have been revealed this week. First up, Michael Keaton is out promoting his new superhero film Birdman and is answering lots of questions about his iconic role as the Caped Crusader in Tim Burton‘s films. He said the reason he didn’t do Batman Forever is because the studio didn’t appreciate the character in the way he did. But he said that he would play the character again — under one condition.
Also, producer Charles Roven (who did all of Christopher Nolan’s Batman films, as well as Man of Steel and the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) revealed Ben Affleck was everyone’s first choice to play the character in the new film. Even Christopher Nolan had an opinion on the casting. Read the Michael Keaton Batman Forever quote and more below. Read More »
Christopher Nolan‘s Dark Knight Saga truly comes to a close this week with the Blu-ray release of The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition. Owning all three films, in one set, packed with extras feels like the final stage on a trip we took beginning in 2005 with the release of Batman Begins. Of course, Nolan’s journey started before that, when he made the important decision to cast Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader.
A clip of an extra from the Blu-ray set is now online that shows footage from Bale’s audition tape. That’s cool enough in itself. But, because the Batman Begins suit had not been designed yet, the actor wore the Sonar Batsuit Val Kilmer wore in Batman Forever. And he acted against Amy Adams. Check that out below, along with an image of Begins co-star Cillian Murphy auditioning for the role. Read More »
