    • 10. True Lies
      One of the funniest movies of the decade. Not to mention the incredible action sequences and great acting by stars like Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Arnold, Tia Carerre, and a hilarious performance by Bill Paxton! Oh, yeah and Arnold's in it, too. His runner up to T2.
    • 9. Wayne's World
      Mike Myers in his prime. Sorry, but the humor in Austin Power's was too slapstick and cheesy when one compares it to the clever jokes of Wayne's World. "Asphinkter says what?"
    • 8. Blade
      The most entertaining fight sequence ever filmed jumps off the screen in the first 10 minutes.
    • 7. The Lion King
      So its the odd ball on the list of action films. It was great to fans of any genre.
    • 6. Forrest Gump
      "I musta drank me about fifteen Dr. Peppers."
    • 5. Pulp Fiction
      It's on everyone's list. Why not, huh?? This film has some of the most memorable dialogue of any movie ever made. "Royale wih' cheese"
    • 4. The Crow
      Brandon Lee's performance was Oscar worthy, at least a nomination. This film is the best comic-to-film adaption after the 1989 version of Batman.
    • 3. The Shawshank Redemption
      What a movie!
    • 2. Jurassic Park
      "Hold on to your butts" - Ray Arnold (Sam Jackson) This film showed us visuals and special effects that were unprecedented.
    • 1. Terminator 2 : Judgment Day
      Arnold's bread and butter. This movie had everything that defines a true action flick.

    • 10. Sixth Sense
      The first people who saw it ...were truly amazed at the ending before they blew it for the rest of society
    • 9. Usual Suspects
      Classic ensemble - great ending ....
    • 8. Jerry Maguire

    • 6. Fargo

    • 5. Seven
      Again..horror at its finest
    • 4. Silence of the Lambs
      Horror at its finest

      wicked funny with memorable lines....My love is ticking like a clock..berzerker...
    • 2. The Fugitive
      Hero without a gun....awesome
    • 1. Good Will Hunting
      When Ben and Matt talk about how Ben wishes for the day he walks up to Matts door and he isnt there anymore......
    American Pie , Goodfellas , Forrest Gump , Home Alone , Jurassic Park , Tombstone , Friday , Dumb and Dumber , Toy Story and American Beauty could all also be on this list...viva la 90s !!

    By: Tyler Durden
    • 10. Trainspotting
      This is the only movie I have ever said "Holy shit!" outloud while I was whatching it. Truly disturbing, but nevertheless a great movie. "Choose life."
    • 9. The Sixth Sense
      The first time I saw this movie I loved it, but it wasn't until the second time that I realized that this film is truly amazing. The way that they set it all up and how everything actually makes sense is incredible. "I see dead people."
    • 8. Braveheart
      Mel Gibson is one of my favorite actors and this movie is most likely his best. You know a movie is great when it's 3 hours long and you don't seem to notice. "Every man dies. Not every man really lives."
    • 7. American Beauty
      Kevin Spacey is another one of my favorite actors. Lester Burnham is one of the funniest and lovable characters I've seen in a long time. The expression on his face when he's watching Mena Suvari is priceless. "I rule."
    • 6. Forrest Gump
      Tom Hanks is the best and my favorite actor. This movie just makes you feel good. What more can I say. "Life is like a box of chocolates...you never know what you're gonna get."
    • 5. Goodfellas
      Martin Scorsese is a genius. The acting is spectacular in this masterpiece. "Ever since I can remember I've wanted to be a gangster."
    • 4. Saving Private Ryan
      Steven Spielberg is also a genius. This is my favorite war movie. I'm a WWII buff, which makes me like it even more. Love it, love it, love it. "FUBAR."
    • 3. Reservoir Dogs
      Yet another genius on this list holds the 3rd and 2nd slot on this list, and that genius is Quentin Tarantino. I love Steve Buscemi and this movie is fascinating. You can't stop watching it. "Why do I have to be Mr. Pink?"
    • 2. Pulp Fiction
      I can't say enough about this movie. The acting, the direction, the altogether setup...it's all brilliant. Sam Jackson is a bad motherfucker. "Ah man, I shot Marvin in the face."
    • 1. Fight Club
      It's original. It's got superb acting. It's got incredible dialouge. It's got one of the best endings ever. It's Fight Club. AWESOME!!! My favorite movie of all time. "I want you to hit me as hard as you can."
    I apologize for all of the quotes. I know some are very cliche and you've heard them a million times. I just couldn't resist.

      Gotta love that Phil Collins song.
    • 9. The Mighty Ducks
      The most inspiring movie of the decade. Oh you think I'm kidding...
    • 8. Clifford
      Martin Short is a comedic genius. I've based my whole sense of humor off this movie that I saw when I was six.
    • 7. Sleepless in Seattle
      You can never get enough of a good chick flick.
    • 6. Jurassic Park
      The first one was great, but the 2nd one sucked. It took like a full hour before anyone even died. I'm not going to pay 8 bucks to see a dinosaur play with a puppy. For that price he'd better eat it.
    • 5. Road Trip
      The french toast scene. Whenever I go to breakfast I always hope my waiter puts my french toast up his butt before serving it to me.
    • 4. House Arrest
      Jennifer Love Hewitt before she became just "Love". Such a great movie and so underrated. Those kids are so crazy! Who kidnaps their parents?
    • 3. Sister Act
      Nothing you can say could tear me away from my God!
    • 2. Hocus Pocus
      This is like the coolest movie ever guys. Funny and scary all at once.
    • 1. Free Willy
      I was like super inspired by this movie. When they play that Michael Jackson song while the huge whale jumps over the homeless kid, my heart absolutely melts.

    • 7. American History X
      Don't respect any list that doesn't include this movie somewhere.
    • 6. Braveheart
