    By: April
    • 10. Beavis and Butthead Do America
      HALLARIOUS movie in which Beavis and Butthead travel around the country, ending up in Washington, D.C. If you're looking for a movie that's funny and doesn't take much thought, this is THE movie for you!:p
    • 9. American History X
      A chilling movie about racism that will DEFINATELY stay with you...
    • 8. Dumb and Dumber
      One of THE best comedy movies of all time!! Harry and Lloyd will have you laughing your *#! off the entire time!
    • 7. The Mask
      Jim Carey, need I say more?
    • 6. Titanic
      Now THIS is a chick flick! It's a great account of what happened on the Titanic AND it includes a love story that all the ladies will like!
    • 5. The Big Lebowski
      Definately not a chick movie, but definately funny! This is one that the boyfriend would watch and actually enjoy...
    • 4. Clueless
      Every time I watch this movie, I laugh a little harder. I especially love the part where Cher is describing the guys in her highschool... "as if":p
    • 3. Jaw Breaker
      Hollywood's twisted version of the "popular girls" at highschool. An innocent (well, not so innocent) prank goes wrong and ends up with the "teen dream" accidentally dying. Now the other three girls have to cover it all up to go to, of course, the Prom.
    • 2. Water Boy
      This is, by far, one of Sandler's best movies. It's a great comedy that'll keep you laughing from start to finish.
    • 1. Silence of the Lambs
      What can I say? A good (I hesitate to say) horror movie. It's not the typical bad guy dressed in black ready to jump out and stab you, but it's definately scary.

    By: Heechee
    • 10. Saving Private Ryan
      A good work: is, in fact, the only war film that likes me.
    • 9. Forrest Gump
      A very human film, with some kind of optimism: after all, the human misery described in all that episodes of american history can be seen with other eyes.
    • 8. Strange Days
      A film a bit unknown, about a detective in a very near future (the 1999 Los Angeles). It was called the 90's blade runner, and in some way, this affirmation is justified.
    • 7. Interview With a Vampire
      A very human an unusual vampire story, when a vampire tells his life to a man, after two centuries of suffering because his own identity.
    • 6. 12 monkeys
      Another thriller, with a sci-fi base, relationed with the timetravel. A countdown to save the mankind before a disaster take place.
    • 5. Seven
      More than a thiller. The most disturbing film i've ever seen. The deepness of the characters, the script, the decay atmofere of the unnamed City... all is perfect in the story. A tough film, but a masterpiece too.
    • 4. The Matrix
      Who don't knows about this one? Lots of action an a deep story. I liked reloaded an revolutions, but this is the best film of the trilogy.
    • 3. Gattaca
      A very good sci-fi story that don't needs FX to describe a futurist society, when the succes is determined by genetic engineery.
    • 2. American Beauty
      I like it because have the same message than Figt Club, but with more poetry, more "beauty". A conventional man who gives a sense to his bland life, and then, all falls apart around him.
    • 1. Fight Club
      A genuine masterpiece! Althought is set in a dark and hopeless atmosphere, it's a very good story, with an amazing end and a clear message: The world that we are creating is not as good as we think.

    • 10. American History X
      Good story. Shows how events change our life.
    • 9. Shawshank Redemption
      Just watched the movie tonight. Had heard many good reviews. Really a special movie. beautiful story, well screened. And I hadnt realized how versatile Stephen King's writing ability is.
    • 8. Sleepers
      One of those movies which really gets you thinking how you would cope in the situation. Again, a great cast. De Niro, Kevin Bacon, Brad Pitt, Minnie Driver, Dustin hoffman, Robert Patrick.
    • 7. True Romance
      I would say THIS is the best cast of the 90's. BEST CAST EVER, more like!! Christian Slater, Rosanna Arquette, Christopher Walken, Gary Oldman, Samuel L Jackson, James Gandolfini, Dennis Hopper, Val Kilmer, Brad Pitt. Another Tarantino movie.
    • 6. Pulp Fiction
      Tarantino has a way of keeping you on your toes throughout the movie. And the sharp cheeky dialogue is very entertaining.
    • 5. City Hall
      Movie was alright, but Pacino was again special. His speech at the funeral service for the little black-american kid, is another of the best individual acting scenes I've seen.
    • 4. Matrix
      One of a kind in a lot of ways. Even being a person who isnt into Sci-fi, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. The concept is very interesting as well.
    • 3. Amistad
      A piece of history well presented. Anthony Hopkins is sensational as John Quincy Adams (Former U.S president), legal counsel representing the slaves. His presentation to court was one of the most memorable pieces of acting I've ever seen. Djimon Honsou's performance is special too.
    • 2. Scent of a Woman
      How good is Pacino's acting in this difficult role? He just steps into role brilliantly.
    • 1. Forrest Gump
      A masterpiece. Good screenplay, brilliant acting by Hanks, an overall well made movie. Type of movie which stays with you for awhile.
    If you like my selections you may be a fan of these movies as well. - Silence of the Lambs, Fight Club, Reservoir Dogs, Primal Fear, Arlington Road, Switchback, Dead man walking, etc.

    • 10. Jurrasic Park ('93)
      Big Dinosaurs. Cool.
    • 9. Good Will Hunting ('97)
      I wish it wasn't up against Titanic for the oscar, because they both deserved it.
    • 8. Titanic ('97)

    • 7. The Cell ('99)
      The most visually stunning movie, in my opinion
    • 6. The Blair Witch Project ('99)

    • 5. Great Expectations ('98)
      This movie has a feel to it that just does something for me. I dunno.
    • 4. The Matrix ('99)
      You've heard it before - it's the Star Wars for today's generation.
    • 3. Strange Days ('95)
      Not many people saw it because it was so disturbing, but what a damn cool movie.
    • 2. Romeo + Juliet ('97)
      Baz Luhrman really made a piece of art for the new age.
