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

    By: Crystal
    • 10. Down to You
      This is another good love story that you just can't pass up. I feel like it reveals what true love really is.
    • 9. Under the Hula Moon
      Stephen Baldwin plays a husband that will do anything to save his wife. Eventhough it's a comedy, I find it touching as well.
    • 8. Cruel Intentions
      Ryan Phillippe make Sabastian a character that you simply love to hate. This is a outstanding movie!!
    • 7. Where the Heart Is
      This movie is one of my favorites!! The book is just as good if not better than the movie. This is such a touching story about friends and family.
    • 6. Playing by Heart
      This movie was so good because all of the characters were connected in some way or another. It just shows you what families can really be like.
    • 5. American Pie
      Finally a movie really depicted teen life!! This was one of the funniest movie ever. It's seems like you could relate to each character because you knew someone like them in high school!!
    • 4. Scream
      This movie was so unique in its day. Matthew Lillard and Skeet Ulrich took murderers to another level. It was a awesome and unique movie all around!!!
    • 3. The Usual Suspects
      Kaiser Soze is the most charming and clever characters you'll ever meet. This movie was one of a kind!!!
    • 2. Here on Earth
      Chris Klein and Leelee Sobieski make this movie one of the best love stories ever told.
    • 1. 8 Seconds
      Lane Frost is a true hero. Luke Perry performed very well in his shoes. 8 Seconds is the greatest movie of all time. Especially since it's about a real person. This is a real story that I am so amazed by.
    Favorite movies are so hard to pick, but these are the one's that came to mind when I found this survey.

    • 9. The Rock

    • 8. Dumb and Dumber

    By: Ceriel van Egdom
    • 10. Seven
      Yes, I think almost everyone agree with me this is a very good movie. the story is very well written. While i was watching this one, I thought: "I want to be as good as this writers are", very good! An all time classic.
    • 9. Instinct
      I like movies from Anthony Hopkins, because he's an very good actor. Instinct is also a very well written story and it made me think about the material world we're living in.
    • 8. Me, Myself and Irene
      Jim Carrey is the actor who makes me really laughing. Dumb and Dumber is good too, actually all his movies, but Me, Myself and Irene is a very hilarious movie, also because it's written by the Farelly brothers.
    • 7. Schindler's List
      For me this one is the best movie Steven Spielberg ever made. So damn realistic. The girl in the red jacket... do I need to say more. Big, big teardrops came out of my eyes. This movie makes you see that wars are extraordinairy horrible and terrifying.
    • 6. Urban Legend
      I like this kind of movies, like Scream, I know what you did last summer and stuff... Urban Legend is the very best in its genre, because I really didn't expected the murderer.
    • 5. The Blair Witch Project
      This is such a scary one! Amazing! I heard from many people in my neighbourhood that they don't liked it. I just can't understand that! If you are able to think that YOU are one of these persons in the movie, which is not very difficult because of 'the Video 8 way of fiming, then the movie will be you're worst nightmare come true! Especially the children sounds when they are staying in the tent at night... a very original movie!... and surely the most scary one ever for me...
    • 4. Cruel Intentions
      This is a very good one. I think it's in my personal top 10 because of its fantastic acting work. Also The story is quite original and I enjoyed the story from the beginning 'till the end.
    • 3. The Game
      There are not many times that my heart beated too fast in a cinema, but while I was watching this movie, I thaught I was gonna die! This is a amazing thrilling movie, with an very, very good story and an unbelievable original ending. If you've not seen this one, then: where are you waiting for !
    • 2. The Sixth Sense
      This story is so, so good and original! The end of it... WOW! It scared the shit out of me! This is a classic one! "I see dead people" is a sentence that people will know for over one hundred year. The Sixth Sense is a fantastic movie and simply far the best one in 1999 !!
    • 1. Titanic
      This one is much more than only a movie. I've seen Titanic for over 12 times.It makes me think about the world and it shows you how you will react when you're in the middle of a big disaster. This movie will be the best one forever, no words for it !
    As so many people said, it's actually too difficult to pick out ten favourite movies out of my mind. There are so many films I love: Saving Private Ryan, There's something about Mary, One flew over the cuckoos nest, Braveheart, Jerry Maguire, Analyze this, The usual suspects, American beauty, The Truman Show, Arlington Road, American Psycho, Stir of echoos, Die hard (with a vengeance), The green mile, Deuce Bigalow, Ace Ventura, Eyes wide shut, oké, oké, i will stop now, any way, i'm a big movie fan, living in Holland. I'm almost every week in the cinema watching a movie and hire and buy them a lot. Watching movies is a great way to 'waste' my time and I must say: keep up the good work with sites like this...
