I'M DISAPPOINTED THAT CORTANA WILL BE A CIRCLE AND NOT THE ACTUAL SEXY WOMAN FROM THE GAME.


I mean, I was 11 when space jam came out and all I can remember of the movie is that I thought it was kinda poo poo. IIRC we went to see it with my school class as some kind of end of term treat. I refuse to believe real people actually dressed like that though (maybe fashion trends were different in Australia?). They looked ridiculous.

I saw Space Jam exactly twice around the same age, once in theaters and then again on VHS, maybe a third time, I dunno it's kinda hazy. I don't think I had a strong opinion of it one way or the other, but it wasn't exactly something that stuck around in my memory for too long aside from being reminded occasionally "hey, remember Space Jam?" So no, no one gave a poo poo about Space Jam after 1996, 97 if we're pushing it.

To this day I am legitimately surprised it even got a sequel.

Wait it came out in 96? I was thinking 98 for some reason. So I would have been 9, even closer to the target demographic.

I definitely agree that there were way more iconic movies they could have featured, particularly given that Cisco is such a nerd. Star Trek First Contact for example, or Independence Day.

Iím thinking this was an edict from on high in the Warner Brothers water tower. ďThe new Space Jam is coming out soon, have someone mention Space Jam on your comic book nerd show for Brand Synergy or some poo poo.Ē

Obviously Killer Frost is going to show up in the crowd scene next to Mama Fretelli and Imortan Joe.

Look guys, they went to '98 because if they went back too much further Cisco and Chester would've been either too young to remember it and/or they don't want them to be too old whenever Cisco mentally becomes 7 and you work out the timeline that he's officially 30, Space Jam is in theatersBlockbuster because everyone knows there's not a chance it would be getting a lot of hype in... any other time thereby signifying it's definitely the 90s (and yeah a touch of WB brand synergy), and they dress like Saved By The Bell characters because it's funnier.



vvv: ah yes

Minor correction but Space Jam was guaranteed in stock at Blockbuster, not in theaters (Blockbuster in general has quickly become the "this is the 90s" landmark, as evidenced by Captain Marvel)

It definitely was brand synergy driven because it wasnít just a throw away reference they kept talking about it later.

Canít believe Barry/The Speedforce hosed up 90s throwback episodes and Groundhog Day ones too

The 90s sucked the first time and it sucks as nostalgia fodder now

The only thing I miss about the 90s was being young.

TV is better, movies are better, video games are better, comic books are better, food is about the same. People are more aware about problems in our society, racism, homo and transphobia are considered bad rather than fodder from comedians.

Though there wasn't as many open Nazis.

90s cartoons were pretty good.

Current cartoons are also pretty good, though, so that's not a dramatic shift, really.

Good to see Frost inherited Caitlin's luck with men.
