    By: Eva Stenmark
    • 10. Six Days, Seven Nights
      I thought this action-comedy film with Harrison Ford and Anne Heche was entertaining.
    • 9. Jurassic Park
      "That is one big pile of sh*t."-Malcolm Gargantuan of a movie only Steven Spielberg could make.
    • 8. The Birdcage
      A riot!! Robin Williams and Nathan Lane were hysterical! I have never laughed so hard throughout a movie before...and I was still cracking up walking out of the theater.
    • 7. Saving Private Ryan
      After seeing this film all I could say was,"This is one HELL of a movie!!!" I have a deeper respect for the WW2 veterens. Loved the conversation behind FUBAR.
    • 6. As Good As It Gets
      Helen Hunt and Jack Nicholson definitely earned their Oscars!!!
    • 5. Braveheart
      "....but they'll never take our FREEDOM!!!" A great epic about the triumph of Scottish pride.
    • 4. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
      A different take on the English legend.....Robin Hood has a Moorish sidekick instead of Little John. Marian can fend for herself. Will Scarlett turns out to be Robin Hood's half-brother. Not an Erroll Flynn-esque Robin Hood, yet a great film as a whole.
    • 3. Scent of a Woman
      "Hooyah!" I love Al Pacino in the tango scene!!!
    • 2. Terminator 2:Judgment Day
      James Cameron's incredible sequel to the original film... Arnold S. and Linda Hamilton shine in this one.
    • 1. The Silence of the Lambs
      "Hello, Clarice.....have the lambs stop screaming?" Anthony Hopkins is brilliant as Dr. Hannibal Lector. Jodie Foster is fantastic as Clarice Starling.
    Honorable Mentions: Dances With Wolves,Twister,The Crow,While You Were Sleeping,Wayne's World,Elizabeth,Beauty and the Beast,The Lion King,Singles,A Few Good Men,The Fugitive,Jerry Maguire,Batman Returns

    • 10. Mulan
      This was a wonderful movie....Hands down, nothing Disney can try will get better that this.
    • 9. Batman
      the only respectable one made in the ninties. Michael Keaton was the stuff.
    • 8. Mrs. Doubtfire
      Is Robin Williams the man or what?
    • 7. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
      "GET OUT OF MY FACIAL"..... Hillary Swank in her she-snob days.... Gotta love it.
    • 6. My Boyfriend's Back
      Though it had a cheap Disney ending, Andrew Lowry stole it all as a lovesick zombie. it was really underestimated but heck i loved it!!!!
    • 5. The Mask
      This is the only movie when a hopeless guy gets the girl that i like because, well JIM CARREY!!!!! need i say more?
    • 4. Ace Ventura
      three words: JIM CARREY ROCKS!!!!
    • 3. Forest Gump
      Tom Hanks could not have said it better.... "STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES!!" He was soo awesome
    • 2. Clueless
      This movie MADE 1995. it had EVERYTHING!!!!!
    • 1. Wanye's World
      This Movie is the best!!!! Who can not say they have not recreated that Bohemian Rhapsody scene in a car or anywhere else?
    I would just like to say that Any one who thinks that Titantic was a wonderful movie is should be deported. That movie capitalized on a tradgedy and even though it could have been turned into a good documentary-various point of view movie, they perversed it by making it a freaking love story-like we need another faux tale to instill more illusion with love. The plot was unbelivable-like di caprio would have ever had a chance with Winslet if they were on the ship.. Give me a break. As for any other movies, well i could only choose ten!!!!
