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

    By: I
    • 10. Home Alone
      Classic Christmas movie.
    • 9. House Guest
      Sinbad is so funny!
    • 8. Beauty and the Beast
      I'm an avid cartoon watcher.
    • 7. Enemy of the State
      Great mix of action and humor.
    • 6. Jurassic Park
      Dinosaurs in the 20th century? Who'da thunk it?
    • 5. Toy Story
      What a cool idea!
    • 4. Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead
      Funny, funny, funny!
    • 3. Independence Day
      In my opinion, one of the only "aliens invading earth" movies worth watching.
    • 2. The Matrix
      Arguably, the COOLEST movie ever!
    • 1. Aladdin
      I never get tired of this one.

    By: Max
    • 10. Titanic
    • 9. Matrix
    • 8. Kolya
    • 7. Amores Perros
    • 6. La vita e bella
    • 5. Trainspotting
    • 4. As Good as it gets
    • 3. American Beauty
    • 2. Eyes Wide Shut
    • 1. Pulp Fiction

    By: Nate W.
    • 10. Dances with Wolves
      A very impressive and ambitious historical epic. It's too bad Kevin Kostner hasn't done anything close to it since.
    • 9. Unforgiven
      The western came roaring back thanks to one of it's most famous disciples. Finally gave Clint Eastwood the recognition he deserved.
    • 8. Silence of the Lambs
      Introduced the world to Hannibal Lecter. Red Dragon is great too, but it's hard to top the original for scares and thrills.
    • 7. Scent of a Woman
      Al Pacino's performance as Frank Slade. Need I say more?
    • 6. Forrest Gump
      Some people love to bash this film, and I never understood it. Forrest Gump is a unique and joyous celebration of the human spirit and the power of determination in any individual. It gets better every time I see it.
    • 5. Pulp Fiction
      Comes in at #1 on many lists. I can't say anything that hasn't already been said. Travolta can still dance!
    • 4. The Shawshank Redemption
      My favorite from 1994, the gretest year for films in the 90s in all aspects. I really, really love this movie. Shawshank is a wonderful, satisfying experience that can renew your faith in life.
    • 3. Schindler's List
      Same as Saving Private Ryan, but on a greater, more devastating scale. No other film I've ever seen packs quite the emotional whallop as this one does.
    • 2. Saving Private Ryan
      Squeaks past Schindler's List for me. A truly engrossing, unforgettable war epic. And as for the opening battle scene, fuhgettaboutit.
    • 1. Goodfellas
      My all-time favorite film of any decade. Breathtaking, exhilirating, exhausting, and captivating all at once with unbelievable performances all-around. Martin Scorsese has got to be the greatest filmmaker alive.
    Honorable mentions (there's too many to list them all) -Heat (Pacino and DeNiro finally share the screen) -American Beauty -The Crying Game -Quiz Show -Fight Club -L.A. Confidential -Braveheart -Casino -Dumb and Dumber (probably the funniest movie of the decade)

    By: Choi

      I'm your huckleberry
    • 9. Shawshank Redemption
      If I hear so much as a mouse fart in here I swear by God and sonny Jesus you will all visit the infirmary. Every last motherf**ker in here.
    • 8. Saving Private Ryan
      He better be worth it. He better go home and cure a disease, or invent a longer-lasting lightbulb
    • 7. Fight Club
      This is your life and it's ending one minute at a time.
    • 6. Leon
      Orphanage Headmistress: Now tell me what happened to you. Mathilda: OK. My family they got shot down by D.E.A. officers because of a drug problem. I left with the greatest guy on earth. He was a hitman, the best in town, but he died this morning. And if you don't help me, I'll be dead by tonight.
    • 5. The Matrix
      I know kung fu
    • 4. Goodfellas
      How am I funny, like a clown? What is so funny about me? What the FUCK is so funny about me? Tell me. Tell me what's funny.
    • 3. Schindler's List
      You're cruel Oskar. You're giving them hope. Now *that's* cruel!
    • 2. Reservoir Dogs
      Joe: And you are Mr. Pink. Mr. Pink: Why am I Mr. Pink? Joe: Cause you're a faggot, ok?
    • 1. Pulp Fiction

    By: Linda Weatherford
    • 10. There's Something About Mary

    • 8. Silence of the Lambs
      I'll never look at fava beans the same.
    • 7. Misery
      Kathy Bates was brilliant. Would not want her as my biggest fan.
    • 6. American Beauty
      The movie that made me a Kevin Spacey fan.
    • 5. Forrest Gump
      Very touching movie.
    • 4. Pulp Fiction
      John Travolta proved to be more than just a disco king.
    • 3. Titanic
      Brilliant historical piece mixed with a fictional love story
    • 2. Fargo
      Steve Buscemi is the craziest villian of all time! A very underrated actor.
    • 1. Sling blade
      Billy Bob Thornton is a genius! Dwight Yoakam proved himself a great actor.

    By: Christy-IN-USA

      Bruce Willis from TV's Moonlighting & Die Hard(s)

    By: Sole
    • 10. Interview with the vampire
      Admittedly mixed performances, but impeccable set design and production values and good performances from Cruise and Banderas make this a winner.
    • 9. Lola Rennt (Run Lola Run)
      Breathtakingly kinetic thriller with the subliminal theme that love can do anything.
    • 8. The opposite of Sex
      "You'll laugh, You'll cry, You'll be offended" Just hilarious
    • 7. Cyrano De Bergerac
      Exuberant and witty take on the classic story, great performances all round and stunning visual style.
    • 6. American Beauty
      Funny, shocking and poignant deconstruction of the pitfalls risked in aspiring to the American dream.
    • 5. Four Weddings and a Funeral
      Proved British movie could be both brilliant and commercial, hilariously funny and surprisingly subtle.
    • 4. The Last Seduction
      The 'noir' genre revamped with Linda Fiorentino as the most brilliant of Femme Fatales, always entertains and surprises.
    • 3. Three Colours: Red
      I haven't seen 'blue' or 'white' but they'll have to be quite something to equal this.
    • 2. The English Patient
      Powerful drama of doomed love around the time of world war 2. Haunting, poignant and hugely successful (partculairly commercially...)
    • 1. The Crying Game
      Thought Provoking, superbly acted and directed, deserving of its six oscar nominations and so much more than just a plot twist.

    By: Jack Gerhardt
    • 10. Winning
      Awesome because it was made in the Racing Capital of the World- Speedway Indiana. The hotel it was shot at, is still standing on the Speedway grounds. Have a stay there in the famous room 123. Well done for the 60s
