Can you believe it's been a full decade since Superbad hit theaters? Or that you've grown 10 years older since you first saw Bridge to Terabithia? It's hard to believe, but a lot of our favorite flicks are turning the big 1-0 this year.

We're super excited for 2017's upcoming films — Pitch Perfect 3, The Last Jedi, and Beauty and the Beast definitely have our attention. But sometimes, it's fun to watch movies for the nostalgia factor, too. Who doesn't still refer to Christopher Mintz-Plasse as McLovin? And we'll never stop quoting Allison Janney's best lines from Juno.

It's amazing how pop culture touchstones, like our favorite old movies, help to put the passage of time into perspective. Click through to have crazy flashbacks remembering these favorites from 2007.

Enchanted
Real life Disney princesses do exist, and they happen to look a lot like Amy Adams. This musical takes the Disney princess out of her cartoon life and plops her right in the middle of New York City, where hijinks, song, and dance ensue. Oh, and Dr. McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey) is there, too.

I Am Legend
This thriller sees Will Smith as the possible last survivor of a viral outbreak that killed most of the Earth's population and turned the survivors into zombie-like, nocturnal creatures. At least two different endings exist for this film, which features surreal scenes of deer running around an abandoned New York City, so you might just have to track down both and find the one that moves you more.

Spider-Man 3
I know, I know, it's hard to remember which Spider-Man movie is which. This one was the last of the Tobey Maguire iterations, and features an incredible (or incredibly bad, depending on how you look at it) sequence of Peter Parker dancing down the streets of New York.
