" Date: 12/16/2020 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-Watch Note: This movie just turned 20 years old and I felt like it was the perfect time to revisit this movie. I have probably have seen this movie like seven or eight times during the last 20 years. I still remember when this movie was a hugely popular movie with both movie nerds and non-nerds alike. I first saw the movie back in 2001 from a friend that I knew in my school that was also into tape trading and he assists that we should watch this movie ASAP"
