En Route Culture - Watch An Oldie But A Goodie on Netflix

Watch An Oldie But A Goodie on Netflix

Movies to rewatch on Netflix tonight

Before HD television, Netflix, Gossip Girl and the likes of Blair Waldorf on the Upper East Side, we’d look to Cher and her clothes-matching-wardrobe for all the glitz and glam, Matilda was our version of Harry Potter and Hiptop mobiles were all the craze.

When was the last time you thought to watch these classics from when we grew up?  The last time I watched Clueless, was in my school uniform behind a tiny desk in English Class… why was Clueless apart of the curriculum? Can someone please explain.

CLUELESS (1995)

IMDb rated 6.8/10, starring Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash and Brittany Murphy in high school who must survive the ups and downs of adolescent life.

Cher’s external demeanour at first seems superficial, but rather it hides her wit, charm, and intelligence which help her to deal with relationships, friends, family, school, and the all-important teenage social life.
