There is no doubt that each and every one of us heard or said the phrase “only the 90s kids will know it”. Well, even though sometimes it is an overstatement to put things into this bracket, this new Netflix movie is definitely something that deserves to be in that set of things. Rebel Wilson’s Senior Year is filled up to the brim with references to the nostalgic music, styles, and accessories that date back to the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Well, there is a high chance that many of you missed out on these references. And that is why we are here to help you. Here are all the things that you may have missed while watching Netflix’s Senior Year. Warning: You have to be accepting of that era’s things. Because if you are not, then you are definitely not cool at all.

The abundance of pop culture references in Senior Year

The primary plot of the Netflix original is that Rebel Wilson‘s character wakes up from a 20-year-long coma. And even though it has been so long, she still thinks of herself as a girl who is in high school and wants to win the title of prom queen. Thus, the first thing she does after waking up is finish what she started 20 years ago. Thus, she returns to her high school with a lot of confidence, and even more of the pop culture of her school days.

The first thing that we notice about Senior Year‘s Stephanie is that the walls of her room are all covered with cutouts from the magazines and posters of her favorite music stars and pop culture favorites. It is basically Pinterest before Pinterest even existed. Some of the most recognizable and famous people on these posters include Britney Spears and NSYNC. We also see posters of some of the famous teen movies of the time ‘Clueless’ and ‘The Craft’.

There are also many verbal references to the era. One of which is when Stephanie uses an Ally McBeal reference to compliment Martha. There are also some subtle TLV burns that might just slip off, even if you looked away for a second.

The music in the movie is nothing but the earworms from back then

Considering that the movie is set around Stephanie, who was a cheerleader back in her school days, music was and still is a big part of her life. And we get a taste of all her favorite tracks in the movie as well. The cheer routine that she follows alone is enough to provide a rush of serotonin to anyone who grew up in the late 90s.

The music includes tracks from Christina Aguilera’s ‘Come On Over’, Nelly’s ‘Hot In Here’, and Kelly Clarkson’s ‘A Moment Like This’. Stephanie also pays tribute to 2 of the biggest stars of her time, when she dances to their songs in pivotal moments of the movie. First, when she dances to Celine Dion’s ‘I’m Your Lady”, and second when she dances to Britney Spears ‘You drive Me Crazy’.

The fashion and lingo on Stephanie’s days in Senior Year

No matter what time you live in, confidence is always the key. That is exactly what we see in the Netflix Original when Stephanie adjusts to all the changes of the era but refuses to give up on her style and dressing sense. She wears all the things that she used to wear, with the same energy and confidence. She wears wide-legged jeans, chunky heels, layered pastel shirts, and much more. We even see a lot of relics from the era, as the first half of the movie is set in the late 2000s, including puca shell necklaces, butterfly clips, and Jansport bookbags.

Even the words and phrases that come out of Stephanie’s mouth are more or less a blast from the past. Phrases like crib, bomb diggity, and shiznit are not something that an average high school kid will use these days. We even see Stephanie mention Tamagotchi toys when she is asking her father to buy her a phone.

Ethan Hawke Reveals How Stranger Things Saved Him From Coming Across as a “crazy, nepotistic dad”

#Ethan #Hawke #Reveals #Stranger #Saved #Coming #crazy #nepotistic #dad

Maya Hawke has been simply amazing as Robin Buckley. There is no actress who could’ve played the role of Robin as well as she did. However, even though Stranger Things is Maya’s most notable work to date, she has also appeared in numerous projects. In fact, Maya made an appearance on The Good Lord Bird in 2020, besides her father, Ethan.

While promoting the show about legendary abolitionist John Brown, Ethan, who played Brown, credited Stranger Things for helping Maya get cast in the show.

Let us see what Ethan Hawke had to say.

Stranger Things helped Maya Hawke get other roles

Stranger Things certainly has helped its actors make great careers for themselves. Each actor from the show has gone on to star in multiple high-budgeted projects.

But apparently, it helped Ethan Hawke more than anyone else as he got a chance to work with his daughter thanks to the Netflix Original.

While appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers back in 2020, Ethan shared how he desperately wanted Maya to play John Brown’s daughter, Annie Brown.

But Ethan said he did not know how to bring the conversation up with his producers. Fortunately, the 51-year-old actor did not have to.

Ethan said that after watching Stranger Things, the producers themselves called Ethan to enquire to see if Maya would be interested in playing Annie and stopped him for being a “crazy, nepotistic dad.”

Ethan commented, “The funny thing about it was that I really wanted Maya, and they were glad to have her. And I was glad to have her, and she was happy to be there.”

The Marvel actor then went on to say how fortunate he felt that he got to work with his daughter and also mentioned how artistic Maya is.

He even shared how he and Maya used to draw when she was young and how impressed Ethan was with her work. The father-daughter duo will also be seen together in the unreleased Beatles-inspired comedy, Revolver.

This year Netflix has had the most impressive lineup of new tv shows and movies in a long time. Just seven months into 2022, we have had huge shows like Stranger Things and Ozark, among many others. However, the streaming giant is just warming up. They have an equally impressive content lineup for the year’s second half, with the most anticipated being the Tekken: Bloodline series.

The animated series based on the legendary video game was announced earlier this year, with director Katsuhiro Harada set to direct it. In Netflix’s Geeked Week event, Harada shared an exclusive look at the series. And even answered a few questions.

One of his answers was hilarious but also gave us an insight into what to expect from the series. Let us see what he had to say.

Tekken: Bloodline Director Katsuhiro Harada wants to apologize to Jin

Netflix’s Geeked Week event was a huge treat, especially for anime fans. During the event, Netflix picked the curtains off many projects it had in development, like the One Piece live-action adaptation, the new Cyberpunk series, and even the Castlevania: Nocturne series.

The event also gave us a huge update for the highly awaited Tekken animated series. During the event, Director Katsuhiro Harada talked about the new series and how fans of the video games will find new things in the series.

During the discussion, Harada was asked what he would say to his main lead from the series Jin. While Katsuhiro replied jokingly, “I’m sorry for always putting you through so many awful things,” it gave us an idea of what to expect.

By Harada’s answer, one can determine the level of struggles Jin will go through in the series. And also, all the lovers of the video game know that Jin has had a troubled past, with him going through many obstacles in his life.
