An age appropriate for nostalgia

How old does something have to be before you begin to feel nostalgic about it?

I was having a conversation with a friend the other day, about a series horror movies from the mid 1990s. I found the first entries in that franchise very difficult to watch. I thought he might not dislike them as much as I did because he is younger than I am.

I do hot have the same nostalgia for bad movies from the 1990s as maybe I do for equally bad movies from the 1980s. I guess that’s because neither my childhood nor my adolescence occurred in the 1990s.
