    One of my favorite experiences you could have with a movie is when you finish watching it, and you can say “oh yeah, this came out in the __0’s” that feeling when films are like time capsules to a different time, for example, I’d argue that “Space Jam” is a near perfect tim word counter e capsule of the 1990’s, a period when “basketball + X =$” was in full  swing, commercials could actually become full length motion pictures, and when The Lo VidMate oney Tunes were beginning to return to cultural relevance. I Mobdro  was wondering if anyone knows any more movies that are such products of their time, that they could most likely not be made at any other point in history. Thank you, I’ll be happy to hear your responses!

    This isn’t an answer to your question but did you know that the Space Jam website is still live?

    I guess Titanic defined the 90s. Not just the film made an impact but also its famous soundtrack and Celine Dion.

    I’d say Get Out, Moonlight and Parasite do a pretty strong job of defining the 2010s. All three capture a specific mood and tackle themes that have been prescient throughout the decade in ways that only films of the 2010s could do. Obviously all three draw on classic inspirations but they’re all also fairly modern in their style and how the approach their genres/ stories.

    The Social Network also does quite a good job of this, and it’s interesting as a 2010 film because it captures the transition between decades and still manages to be pretty prescient at forecasting what’s to come. Maybe a little more left-field of a pick is The Master which, whilst being a period piece, touches on themes of alienation, identity and the manipulation of vulnerable people which I think PTA knew were vital currents in 2010s culture. Her would be on my list for similar reasons.

    I think in 20 years or so we’ll also look back at the MCU films as a product of the 2010s, for good or ill. I personally hope it’s a trend that’s passed by or changed a bit by then, but they’ve definitely defined the tastes of audiences for the past ten years, which will be shown in box office figures for decades to come.

    Wall Street for the 80s. Greed was good.
