    Little Mermaid came out in 1989, so that was 22 years ago.

    there shouldn`t be many current 16-year-olds who have seen Snakes on a Plane, they would have been far too young to see that movie when it came out, and arguably, are still too young to see it.

    This chart makes no sense to me. It would make people feel older to just have the years these movies were released. Like The Little Mermaid was in 1989. THAT makes me feel old. And I`m not 35...

    Toy Story came out in 1995. We`re in 2011. So it`s over 15 years ago. What`s not to understand?

    I guess what I missunderstood was the fact that they had the age 26 next to the movie; but I get it now...no thanks to your snarky response. :)

    Vegascartman: "Uhhhhh...The Matrix is not 25 years old. It came out in 1999. That makes it 12 years old. Fail."

    please re-read the chart, i think you will find your comment is the fail.

    It says Matrix is from not the previous decade (i.e. the "naughties" - 2000-2009) but the decade before it (i.e. the nineties, 1990-1999).

    I don`t get this...these movies are not that old. "Taxi Driver" with Robert DeNiro and Jodie Foster came out in my birth year of 1976. It still holds up pretty well. What`s the point? I`m exactly 35, does that have anything to do with why I don`t get it?

    The matrix one really gets me. 12 years. I was. 10. Really shouldnt have been allowed to watch that. But then i saw T2 in theatres. Born in 89. Terminator was my favorite movie, so when i was 2, we wen to go see it. But then, i suppose seeing terminator enough times to be able to correlate it to t2 when i saw previews by age 2, would be even worse.

    potatosalad, i am the same age, and just remembering how far back it was when they came out makes me feel old. like the fact that when toy story came out i was a little kid (8) and when the 3rd toy story came out i was 22years old. that sh*t makes me feel old as all hell.

    That`s not sad, that`s awesome! I love stuff like that! Would have been fun to listen to my records on vinyl. Doubly awesome that most of the music I like came out in the time of vinyl. On top of that, most of the albums I own were converted from 8-track, so their quality is a bit... scratchy. It`s pretty cool to experience that. :]
