Default Movies that reminded you of your young adult years

Those years between 18-25
What movies reminded you of the culture, the fashion, electronics, the whole vibe of that particular era in your life

For me a couple came to mind:

Mallrats

Empire Records

You are not going to find many people who are going to be able to relate to this from a hindsight perspective given most posters seem to be ages 15-25.

For me, 4 years of that age range was college, so I think of college movies, but even then, most college movies take place at huge universities with much bigger parties than I was used to. After that, the next few years were grad school focused, so that has even fewer movies I relate to.

It happened after 25, but the movie that probably best relates to my life is 50/50.

Yeah, I realized that.
I realize how dated I was when I watched Empire Records and my son asked what a cassette tape was

Not long before people don't know what CDs are. I'm guessing it is starting with people not knowing what it stands for.
