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. :]

I remember where I was and even who I was with when i first watched the lion king, I`d have been 5 or 6 at the time. I still love that movie.

....wow....I`m 24 and remember a lot of this stuff when it was `new`. I was just having this conversation with a friend at work about this - kids now a days don`t even know what a gigapet was or an easy bake oven....

I`m 20 and the Toy Story one makes me feel damn old. I never even saw Finding Nemo because it was too childish at the time.

Not even close.

Also, It appears this chart isn`t for me.

Is it sad that I remember the time before microwaves? (...and when we only had 3 TV channels?..and when music was either on vinyl or an eight track?...)

I remember seeing little mermaid in theaters. I recently mentioned the car surfing scene from Teen Wolf to someone I considered at least near my age range. Their response was a blank stare followed by "What`s a teen wolf?" :-/

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.

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.

As a 23 year old, I definitely remember the Lion King and Toy Story coming out. I think the ages should be adjusted a little.

sarahofborg, you remember the release of the little mermaid? that came out when you were 3, so i think you remember the movie, but not really the release.

@Buiadh: Or maybe it`s just the comic that people just find funny and don`t care how it makes them look?

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?

@everyone talking about giving credit. You are correct this is from xkcd, and when i put up an image i normally check to make sure there is a watermark on there or something, but it slipped my observation this time. I am sorry to you and xkcd for this.

vegascartman- ah yes. the top of that column does say "release year" and not "THEIR AGE." Randall Munroe really is dumb, he can`t even do math to see how long ago a movie came out!

@VegasCartman - yeah... not last decade (2000-2009) but the one before that (1990-1999)

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).

@Zagger...first I want to thank you for talking to me like I`m stupid...that`s always appreciated.
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. :)

FeelTheRide: "So; I know Toy Story did NOT come out when I was a year old...I don`t understand the age correlation?"

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

Gerry1of1: YES, I loved the Hayley Mills Parent Trap. I had such a lesbo crush on her... it was wonderfully confusing!



Speaking of NOT Lindsay Lohan and childhood crushes... Freaky Friday with Jodie Foster. Sigh... oh to be 7 again and sexually baffled. Good times :)

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...

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.
