      I love basketball movies. And this ones ,in my opinion, tops them all. If you wanna learn to trash talk, watch this movie!!
    • 9. Sleepy Hollow
      Hard to decide which Tim Burton film is better, this or the original Batman.

      The greatest teen flick of all time. Although 2 was better, it doesn't qualify for this list.
    • 2. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
      This movie blew me away. I never grow tired of watching this, and it is the last great movie of Kevin Costner's
    • 1. Dazed and Confused
      This movie represents everything about my adolescence. And this movie also takes place the year my parents graduated high school. So i always wonder if they were anything like this

    • 10. Back to the Future 3
      A great way to end the trilogy... I hate manure!- Tannen
    • 9. Pulp Fiction
      Great new aged gangster movie with an all star cast! Ezekial 25:17, it is not even in the Bible!
    • 8. Dogma
      This is the best movie that Kevin Smith worked on. So that would mean that Bethany is part black?- Mewes
    • 7. Lethal Weapon 3
      The best film of the series. Leo's got a BS in bs.- Riggs
    • 6. The Whole Nine Yards
      Bruce Willis and Mathew Perry are excellent together. Perry cracks me up! Dammit Jimmy, why did you have to go and move next door to me?!
    • 5. From Dusk till Dawn
      Simlpy the greatest vampire movie of the 90s. You make a noise, and Mr. 9mm makes a noise. -Seth, George Clooney is great!
    • 4. Ransom
      A movie that I had to watch over and over again. Mel Gibson is fantastic, and Gary Sinise is a good bad guy! You have to ask yourself is today Jimmy Shaker day? - Shaker
    • 3. Basketball
      I have not laughed so hard since The Naked Gun:From The Files of Police Squad! Dude, Dude, Dude, DUDE! Maybe you had a point there.

    By: Marcus Corning
    • 10. The Last Boy Scout
      Same thing with not being too popular anymore but it had great stunts like Die Hard and Lethal Weapon, and it had a great cast.
    • 9. Days of Thunder
      Probably not too popular anymore though but it still had some great car scenes including the crashes and the performance of Tom Cruise as a race car driver.
    • 8. The Sixth Sense
      One of the scariest movies some people will see, wasn't scary for me though. It was good enough for me. With scary scenes like "Signs" both from M. Night Shymalian.
    • 7. Casino
      The gamblers at a Las Vegas Casino decide to chance doing things the antagonist would do, but it was still a great movie with a great cast. Not like other gangster movies though.
    • 6. Fight Club
      Great movie about a businessman and a soapmaker opening a club for boxing. The businessman beating himself up was a good scene.
    • 5. Saving Private Ryan
      Best war movie period! With the best war scenes ever seen on film.
    • 4. American History X
      Movie takes on racism. Edward Norton plays a neo Nazi leaving prison changed protecting his brother from becoming Norton's past. The movie was heartbreathing.
    • 3. The Matrix
      One of the two best movies of 1999, the other being The Sixth Sense. With high-tech special/visual effects and cool fights. Memorable movie.
    • 2. Pulp Fiction
      The best of 1994! This movie made me feel good about crime movies. With stories about hitman on addiction, a boxer, and a hot girl, and a black gangster.
    • 1. Goodfellas
      A movie you will forget, I won't since I own the DVD, About 3 gangsters, including Robert De Niro and Oscar Winner Joe Pesci, involved in a crime sceme and a murder of another gangster, Billy Batts.
    Other great movies were Analyze This, A Bronx Tale, Meet the Parents, Ronin, South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut and Terminator 2.

    By: martin
    • 10. Fargo
      last spot was tough choice..but i liked this movie alot
    • 9. Silence of the Lambs
    • 8. Saving Private Ryan
      Hardcore War flick..one of the best
    • 7. Goodfellas
      Probably 2nd only to Godfather in Mob genre
    • 6. Ed Wood
      I dunno why but each time I watch it i like it more
    • 5. Shawshank
    • 4. Pulp Fiction
      Best dialog in a movie ever
    • 3. Unforgiven
      Clint at his best
    • 2. American Beauty
    • 1. Braveheart
    ALL these movies are GREAT so i really discard numbering sequence
    By: Jeff Bueckert
    • 10. Billy Madison
      Adam Sandler has made some great movies (excluding Bulletproof and Little Nicky which were pure ass). This one is my personal fav.
    • 9. Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
      The best Star Trek movie ever. And easily one of the best Sci-Fi's of the decade.
    • 8. Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey
      The other one is great too (but is 1989), but I actually think the sequel is better. You have to love all their time travelling hijinx. Great early 90s comedy. Too bad all the world's problems couldn't be solved by Wyld Stallions.
    • 7. American Beauty
      So good. I don't even need to explain.
    • 6. Fargo
      I'd say its the Cohen's brothers best movie so far. Great story and even better characters.
    • 5. The Shawshank Redemption
      This movie should show up on everyone's top 10 list. So inspiring.
    • 4. Office Space
      After watching this movie you want to drop out of school and be a slacker. And it's so awesome.
    • 3. Gattaca
      Great science fiction movie that can be appreciated by people who are normally scared away from the genre. All about genetic engineering and how one man rises above his disabilities. A huge theme in the 90s.
    • 2. Braveheart
      Come on people. So great. Not since Spartacus was there a better underdog epic. Amazing story.
    • 1. Rushmore
      No other movie has affected me the same way that this move has. Wes Anderson is pure genius as director and co-writer. Jason Schwartzman turns in a performance that no one could top as Max Fischer. If you haven't watched it, you haven't lived.
    Unfortunately the majority of my picks are skewed to late 90s. Generally because that's when I was in high school, and so that's when I had the time and the money to go to the movies.
