I graduated high school in 99 and watched so many movies back then, and im a pack rat so of course I save all my ticket stubs, especially movie ones. I dug them up the other day. Most of them were still legible. I can remember most of the people I saw these with, and how clueless we were about what the movies were about going in without the internet. I remember being talked into going to see The Apostle by my buddy who I found out later came from a super weird religious family. Lesson learned there. I can also remember going to the midnight showing of X-Files: Fight The Future and having no idea that people were going to be in costume and on drugs. Ahh memories.
Anyway, was a good book and I recommend.
staying on topic, the a.v. club is doing a 1999 week and they dropped their list of the best movies from '99:

also on topic: the oldest movie stub i had up until last year was rumble in the bronx.
