What are your top ten favorite movies from the 90s?

    By: Jerry Aaron
    • 10. I know what you did last summer
      Great movie, it with scream introduced todays horror film. Plus it has Jennifer Love Hewitt, what a fox
    • 9. Scream
      It revived the horror genre. Awesome
    • 8. Patch Adams
      I could have put any Robin Williams movie here. He is the greatest comedic actor of all time
    • 7. Jerry Maguire
      This should have been closer to number one but this is where it fell. Great Movie!
    • 6. Varsity Blues
      I loved this movie, the guy who plays Billy Bob is hilarious. "I love that dog," "I think it's a pig." "Yeah"
    • 5. Lethal Weapon I, II, III, IV
      all of these are great, I hope they continue to make this in 2000 and beyond. Martaw and Riggs are hilarious, Joe Pecci is great in the last two.
    • 4. Liar, Liar
      Probably better than Happy Gilmore, but Liar, Liar is on tv too much.
    • 3. Happy Gillmore
      Adam Sandler is so funny
    • 2. The American President
      Okay, probably not everyone's choice. I thought it was sweet and very funny
    • 1. Forrest Gump
      Changed my life, paid to see it three times in the theatre. The greatest movie of all time
    There are a lot of other movies that could have made this list. Like movies that no matter were I see them I will remember things that were happening in my life when I saw them. Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, Cutting Edge, Cool Runnings, The Rock, etc. This movies automatically take me back to memories of my life. GREAT MOVIES

    • 10. There's Something About Mary
    • 9. Happy Gilmore
    • 8. Waterboy
      Adam Sandler does it again.
    • 7. Whole Nine Yards
      Twisted...loved it.
    • 6. U-571
      This one keeps you on the edge of your seat.
    • 5. Austin Powers II
      The original was hilerious but the sequel was even better. Must be the only movie ever where the sequel was better than the original. You gotta love mini me.
    • 4. Star Wars Episode 1
      A little disappointing but its Star Wars which automatically makes it good. Would have been better if Jar Jar Binx? didn't ruin the whole thing by turning it into a kiddie movie. Its also interesting that they seem to have better technology (e.g. battle droids instead of Storm Troopers and much more streamlined spacecraft) when its supposed to be years earlier then the original Star Wars. But still a good movie.
    • 3. Hunt for Red October
      Awsome story.
    • 2. American Pie
      Funny - only movie where I have had to leave the cinema so I could stop laughing. Would have been number 1 except it got a bit boring by the tenth time I watched it.
    • 1. Matrix
      The best ever. Great story, acting and effects. Non stop action. Loved every minute of it.

    By: Matt
    • 10. Belly
      Now, im sure not all of you would like this movie, but if you do see it. (starring DMX) Look at the way the movie is made, it amazing.
    • 9. Independence Day
      I know it got old fast, but i remember when i fist saw that, i couldn't moved i was so amazed.
    • 8. Tommy Boy
      Chris Farley was and still is awsome. He'll be missed by all.
    • 7. Braveheart
      "They may take out lives, but they'll never take our Freedom!!"
    • 6. The Matrix
      This was in the very late 90's, and it changed the way movies were made.
    • 5. Jurassic Park
      This movie changed the way i thought of things after I saw it. I mean, the movie made me want to be a Palentologist. Once again, Steven Spielberg is teh best.
    • 4. Dazed and Confused
      Funny, yet again another 70s flick. Slater rules!! I LOVE THE 70s!!!!!! Disco still sucks!
    • 3. Forrest Gump
      This movie was great.
    • 2. Man on the Moon
      Jim Carrey + Andy Kaufman = Genius.
    • 1. Saving Private Ryan
      Steven Spielberg's greatest movie made, it made me feel like what war is like.
