A new year of movies is arriving, with movies like Captain America: Civil War & Finding Dory to be excited for. But we are also happy to celebrate the 20th birthday of these movies.

1. Independence Day

Independence Day is one of the most popular and well-known disaster movies of all time! It's no wonder this movie deserves a spot on the list. We are also pretty excited for the sequel, which will released on June 24, 2016.

2. Happy Gilmore

One of Adam Sandler's best comedies to date, about a hockey player who ends up becoming a professional golf player. This movie is definitely one movie I would celebrate the 20th birthday of.

3. Scream

Scream was the rebirth of the horror category of movies after the massive decline in popularity in the late 80s and 90s. A slasher in a ghost mask is killing teenagers, and the search is on to find out who is the killer. We are proud of Wes Craven and his work. May he rest in peace.

4. 101 Dalmatians

The live action movie of the 60s flick, 101 Dalmatians came to life in 1996, in the live adaptation. We hope Cruella doesn't ruin the 20th birthday celebration!

5. Mission: Impossible

Tom Cruise made Mission: Impossible an entertaining action film. I suggest celebrating the 20th birthday in an aquarium, that won't explode.

6. Twister

Another epic disaster movie is turning 20 years old. Happy birthday Twister! Twister, Independence Day, and other movies popularized the movie theme that was create in the 60s/70s.


I congratulate all the actors, directors, crew and everyone apart of these 6 movies for an awesome 20 years!
