CinemaJaw 68, Jaw Retrospective 1996

Travel back 15 years with us

According to Wikipedia: 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year that started on a Monday. In the Gregorian calendar, it was the 1996th year of the Common Era, or of Anno Domini; the 996th year of the 2nd millennium; the 96th year of the 20th century; and the 7th of the 1990s. The year 1996 was designated the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty… Yeah that went swell.

Nevertheless it was a fantastic year for film and Matt K and Ry the Movie Guy discuss the stats, best, worst and top 5 of the year. Also (you know) we get a trivia victim. All this plus I for an I and all the usual segments you’ve come to love.

Come out to the coast, we'll get together, have a few laughs...

This is our second “Jaw Retrospective” and I have to say we are liking this type of episode. It’s always fun to open a time capsule and see what life and the state of the art was. This time around we chose the year 1988, and it turned out to be a TREASURE TROVE of awesomeness! To say that some good movies came out this year would be a huge understatement. Some of the best films in our lifetime came out this year! Perhaps we remember them so fondly because they hit when we were young, but I think it’s more than that. We also have some interesting facts about that year, as well as the stats from the Oscars and the Box Office. Plus our usual antics: I for an I, Trivia, Hollywood Headlines, CinemaJaw Movie Fact, and more.

Its jam-packed with retroactive, hypercolor, moose-in-your-hair, fantastic-ness.
