It’s the 90s! Well, it may as well be, since this month the IGGPPC is celebrating the decade that was all that with the theme, We Love the 90s! Iggle Flicks is presenting two 90s movies for your viewing pleasure in November, but we’re also going oldschool with our bonus film, a movie from 1902 that is considered a landmark in the history of filmmaking.

Check out the dates and times below for the Twitter watch-alongs we’ll be holding and jump on the forums to chat about these movies with your fellow Iggles.

Clueless (1995)
[IMDb page]

It’s not easy being the most popular and glamourous girl at Beverley Hills High. Especially when you’re the envy of scheming Betties (female babes), persistent Barneys (unattractive guys), and teachers who go postal (freak out) when you turn your homework in late! Yet somehow 15-year-old Cher (Alicia Silverstone) keeps it all together, even finding time for extracurricular projects like finding a love match for her debate class teacher (Wallace Shawn), and giving a dowdy friend (Brittany Murphy) a fashion makeover. But Cher’s tidy world starts to unravel with the sudden appearance of two total Baldwins (hunks): a sexy and stylish new classmate (Justin Walker), and Cher’s square but cute “ex-stepbrother” (Paull Rudd). Now Cher is about to learn that when it comes to love, she’s… well, Clueless.” – Paramount Pictures

Embraced for her lovable, spirited nature, Mulan is a young girl who doesn’t quite fit into her tradition-bound society. When the invading Hun army comes charging over China’s Great Wall, Mulan’s aging father is ordered into battle! To spare him from harm, Mulan disguises herself as a soldier and secretly takes his place in the Imperial army, training with a comical, ragtag troop, let by the courageous Captain Shang. Never far away are Mulan’s hilarious guardian dragon, Mushu, and lucky cricket, Cri-Kee. But Mulan will need more than Mushu’s razor-sharp wit to defeat the ruthless Hun leader, Shan-Yu. Only by staying true to herself will she bring victory to her country and honour to her family!” – Disney

Le Voyage dans la Lune

Le Voyage dans la Lune, aka A Trip to the Moon (1902)
[IMDb page]

A Trip to the Moon is a 1902 film directed, produced, written, and starring French filmmaker Georges Méliès. Based on From the Earth to the Moon and Around the Moon by Jules Verne, the film follows a group of scientists who shoot themselves to the moon, finding themselves in an alien landscape delivering fantastical adventures.

A Trip to the Moon astonished audiences with its high production value and innovative special effects, making the film a resounding success, and went on to influence future filmmakers, such as American film pioneer Edwin S. Porter. References to this film can be found in modern pop culture, such as in Smashing Pumpkin’s “Tonight, Tonight” music video; The Moon in The Mighty Boosh; and Brian Selznick’s novel, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, along with its 2011 film adaptation, Hugo. You can read more about the film at TCM.com and Wikipedia.

The movie is only about 13 minutes long and can be found on YouTube, where you can watch the black and white version, the hand-coloured version, or both. 😉
