Words By Dr. Hip HopJust like people and rap albums, films also have anniversaries. And in 2014 there are a ton of groundbreaking and memorable films that are celebrating some pretty important anniversaries of their initial theatrical release.

Some of those films are still teenagers, kicking at 15 and still pretty fresh in our collective consciousness. Others are either entering or half way done with their twenties, but still feel as fresh as ever. And then there are those that, like myself, are entering the real grown up years of their lives. But unlike me, these film classics still got a lot of life left in them.

So let’s take a trip down memory lane and look at ten films, released over the course of 30 years, that will be celebrating a birthday this year. In the words of the great Kanye West, “I’d like to propose a toast. I said toast mutha******s!”

Soul Plane

Soul Plane

Released: May 28, 2004 (10 Years)

Alright, something positive to say… Well the movie was Kevin Hart’s first major starring role. So without this film movie fans would probably not see him currently dominating the cineplex with the “interesting” (read: mediocre) Ride Along. Take that how you will.

White-Chicks

White Chicks

Released: June 23, 2004 (10 Years)

I’m sure somebody out there likes this film 2004 vehicle for Shawn and Marlon Wayans to live out all the “best” white woman stereotypes. And so for them I show love for this decade old film. The gender-bender showed us all the power of Vanessa Carlton and made Terry Crews look incredibly creepy. Incidentally, the film also seemed to mark the end of Shawn Wayans’ career (I mean has he been in anything big after that? And don’t you dare say Little Man!).
