    • 10. Smelia's Sense of Snow
      A very interesting movie. I can't even explain it you just have to see it for yourself.
    • 9. My Father the Hero
      Very funny. Another movie with Gerard Depardieu.

    • 3. Overboard
      Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn just make you want to move to Oregon and marry the first carpenter you see.
    • 2. The Mirror Has Two Faces
      Jeff Bridges and Barbara Streisand make this movie a film to remember and cherish always.
    • 1. Green Card
      This is the all time best romantic comedy, With Andy Mcdowell and Gerard Depardieu. A must see movie.
    There are so many other great movies from the 90's but I think that these 10 are all worth watching again and again.
    By: Fellini Bergman
    • 10. Crumb - 1995
      A documentary film by Terry Zwigoff - this is one of the best documentary films ever made.
    • 9. The City of Lost Children - 1995
      This is a French film by French filmmakers Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro that deserves to be put right next to "Star Wars" and "A Clockwork Orange" when it comes to the greatest fantasy films of all time.
    • 8. Happiness - 1998
      Todd Solondz' is the most original and provocative filmmaker to emerge from the 1990s, and this is his best film.
    • 7. Rushmore - 1998
      Not since the Coen brother's 1987 "Raising Arizona" has there been a more original comedy film.
    • 6. GoodFellas - 1990
      The best mob film ever made, and Martin Scorsese was the right man for the job.
    • 5. Pulp Fiction - 1994
      Quentin Tarantino's masterpiece. I'm sure he won't make a better film than this.
    • 4. Beauty and the Beast - 1991
      Not just the greatest animated film ever made, but also one of the best musicals of all time.
    • 3. The Silence of the Lambs - 1991
      This may not be the best film of the decade, but it's certainly the most important.
    • 2. Fargo - 1996
      This is the most original and influential film of the 1990s.
    • 1. Forrest Gump - 1994
      Out of all the films I've seen in my life, this one has to be the greatest of them all.
    Wes Anderson (Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, and The Royal Tenenbaums) is the best new filmmaker. Look out for his next film. Also, Todd Solondz.
