I think many ways that 90's, were one of the decade that movies came out. consider these days, that movies are ok once in a full moon.

I think after you look at these 100 photos of 90's movies, you agree with me that it was worth going to the movie theater to sit in a dark place for two hours, and really enjoyed yourself to a good or a great movie.

here is a list of the best of the best 90's movies. pick out the best 90's movie, that you think deserve no one spot.

Ranking the best movies of the 90s


my choice at 55 on the list:

the game:

Michael douglas as a wealthy man, that is all business that does believe have a fun or taking a vacation.

on his birthday, his young brother sean penn give him a birthday present that change his life for a moment that he out of his element, that might kill him.

I like Other People's Money with Danny DeVito as a corporate raider who wants to buy Gregory Peck's company and sell the pieces. I especially like the line in which DeVito says, "I don't take money from widows or orphans. I make money for widows and orphans."

I like another movie, Wall Street, which deals with the same subject, but from 1987. Michael Douglas, as a character similar to Danny DeVito's character in Other Peoples Money, believes that "Greed is good," which we could think of as a true statement, except that I would correct the grammar and say, " Industry or diligence is good."

The Shawshank Redemption

Pulp Fiction

Jackie Brown

My top 10 would probably be:

The Big Lebowski
Unforgiven
12 Monkeys
Good Will Hunting
The Thin Red Line
Schindler’s List
Awakenings
A River Runs Through It
Shawshank Redemption
Heat

But the 90’s were probably best in terms of music than in cinema to be honest.

The Shawshank Redemption

Pulp Fiction

Jackie Brown

Everything else was more or less fluff.



the game was to me only one that was original not fluff than rest of movies of 90's.

pulp fiction had classic, until bruce willis and the violence of his beating, that really not necessary in the movie. more less gross and stupid. part of john travoilta and samual Jackson was clever and original, it was the perfect complete the movie.

Jackie brown with pam grier was the best of 70's version of black movies compare to superfly and shaft. that this movie was trying to bring back.

the Shawshank redemption was one of the best movies of the 90's, and the best Stephan king's movies of all time. compare prison movies except for the great escape, this movie is the second prison movies of all time.

one of the best prison version on film, it is not movie, but a tv series. prison break is one of the unique and brilliant pilot of all time.

a man goes to prison being frame to assassination of vice president of usa. his brother, who decide the rob a bank and get caught, and send to the prison as his brother.

the plot of the story:

the brother with a photography mind and hired someone tattoo his body with symbols that he know only. his brother and him are in the most dangerous and unescapble prison in the world.

through four seasons of fox, the brother reunite with his brother. the brother, who is prison, can't image why his brother decided to break the law and come to him.

his brother take off his orange jumpersuit half off his back in front of his brother. from neck to his waist had tattoos on it. his brother memorizes the blueprint of the prison by memory.

the last minutes of the first episode which scene take place, his brother Lincoln look his brother, and wonder, what the hell going on. Lincoln see all tattoos on Michael's back.

then last second of the episode, Michael look at Lincoln and said," Lincoln, I am here to break you out of prison ! "

leon - I agree with you about the music of richness of with a movie, actually of movies.

unforgiven is remake of shane, abut I thought open range was a better version of the classic.

there was something about the red line, I didn't like at all about the movie. the was it was done that really turn me off completely.

heat in many ways was classic, in the style of took bring two great actors together with one the best robbery scene of all time. I thought just too long of movie to watch, that only complaint, I have.

most of your pick, leon, are great movies. 12 monkeys is just weird movie, but the style of the movie is better than science fiction movies, that really miss their marks.

big Lebowski - I like it, but I never really understood the appeal of it as a cult movie.

other people's money - that had an old fashional style to it. it was an excellent movie. it was a Gregory peck's last major movie of his career. it remind of the local hero, with burt Lancaster.

the movie's plot - a man, who was sent by Lancaster's corporation build a dam that would destory a small town's income. which the man decide to save the town instead.

other people's money, I wish make more these kind of movies these days. movies are soo much better than most mainstream movies these days.

wall street said all, is really many ways, why America is so screw up these days. greed is more powerful than reason at time. Michael douglas was brilliant, he was building as great career, not being a son of a great actor, kirk. but his own man, win the best actor that year in this role.

in the 90's, there were three best crime mystery movies of all time. were all brilliant done to make you sit at the edge of your seat in suspense. you were exactly sure how it would end. note that two of three movies that launched kevin spacey's career, and nowadays, his career is over.


the usual suspects

Well I was talking about music of the 90’s in general, not really movie music in particular. I honestly couldn’t stand constantly hearing “I will always love you” or “my heart will go on” everywhere I went.

Anyways, as far as the movies you mention, let’s see...

I never saw Shane or Open Range, as I never was really into the classic westerns, as I found them too corny. But that’s probably what I liked about Unforgiven, it seemed more realistic, gritty, introspective, and brutal. It captured me. And it certainly was definitive Clint Eastwood. I think that movie captured a lot of people and probably revived the western genre, as it was pretty much absent throughout the eighties. Probably because Star Wars usurped the “bad guys vs good guys” melodrama in the late seventies and handed it over to science fiction for the next 15 years.

Yeah I get why there are many who wouldn’t like The Thin Red Line. Especially since it came out the same year that Saving Private Ryan did, undoubtedly forcing a comparison since they were both 3 hour WWII epics, particularly since both also received the Oscar Best Picture nomination (neither won). Here we had a straightforward, dramatic, effects-laden, heroically inspiring movie starring Tom Hanks and Matt Damon and directed by Steven Spielberg, and then being compared to a much less straightforward, sprawling, brooding, often anti-war in tone, movie directed by a more obscure director (albeit highly regarded) coming out of semi-retirement. Many probably found the latter simply boring having to sit through for three hours, trying to sort through all the poetry, after having just sat through the more rousing former. However, despite that, there was a pretty powerful story in it as well, (namely the tension between Nick Norte and Elias Korea’s characters). It was just that you had to wade through all the visual imagery and introspective multi-character narrative to piece it together. I didn’t mind it, though, because I found some of the cinamatography and lyrical narraration to be stunning and moving at times, almost genius. Sure,Terrance Mallick’s films have become more and more fluff since then, but at least this one had still had a substantial amount substance in its plot to make the way it was presented worthwhile, in my opinion.

You liked Heat for the same reason I did - the robbery scene, one of the most memorable, and underrated scenes in the history of movies. A lot of work obviously went into that lengthy bit, and I agree that the movie was too lengthy around it, but boy I would see it again just for that. It really was incredible. The hotel fire alarm scene near the end was pretty good too.

12 Monkeys was definitely different (same director as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’) But I’ve always been into time travel type movies (loved Butterfly Effect, The Jacket, etc), so this was no exception. The plot really was quite an enjoyable puzzler at times too.

Yeah the Big Lebowski. Everyone has a different sense of humor. Not a typical comedy, sure. You’d probably have to appreciate Noir to get it best, as the plot style imitates it, but, really, the reason the movie has persisted for so long is due to the extremely memorable dialogue, which occurs throughout the movie and with every character and never really ends until the credits roll. So many great lines. I honestly don’t think the Coen brothers have ever matched it in this regard before or after, and that’s saying a lot with those guys.

most of the best western movies were starring john wayne and clint eastwood. three of the best comedy western movies. cat ballou starring lee marvin and other movies are suppprt your local gun fighter and support your local sheriff starring james garner.

the open range is probably one of the last best western movies that came out in the last 20 years.

I thought the movie, looker was the best time travel movie , I have seen in the last 20 years. because the plot was original, and solid acting by bruce. it was just a good solid story to watch.

saving private ryan, the first 20 minutes, what I can said, just get out of your movie seat and leave. really disappointed by the end, I want shoot matt. at least, his character to find him, really lame excuse to find in in the movie. I thought it dragged a lot.

by the time, ryan came out, everybody was sick watching ww2 movies that why it didn't win an Oscar. that why Dunkirk was a flop at the box office, that the movie was boring, didn't help. either.

Well Dunkirk came out 20 years later. But yeah, it did have a slight “been there, done that” feel.

As far as Saving Private Ryan, the real underlying purpose of the movie was pretty much fully covered in the opening scene. It seemed to me that the Private Ryan premise was installed to give the movie a reason to keep going afterwards, and I agree, it probably wasn’t the greatest idea that could have been come up with.
