    By: Corinne
    • 10. Wayne's World!!
      Mike Myers is hilarious and so is Dana Carvey.. The scene where they meet the "intellectual" Alice Cooper is hysterical.. and the soundtrack..WE'RE NOT WORTHY!!!
    • 9. Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
      Dumb humour, but I liked it anyway. Shagadelic! Smashing, baby! YEAH BABY, YEAH!
    • 8. Star Trek VIII: First Contact
      Best Trek movie ever! Ya gotta love the Borg.
    • 7. Coneheads
      I laughed so hard during this movie and so did my "parental units". Eggplants have never looked the same since.
    • 6. A League of Their Own
      What can I say? I love baseball and this movie's all-star cast is amazing.
    • 5. The Wedding Singer
      A 90's movie set in the 80's! You gotta love that. Brought back fond memories, and who can resist Adam Sandler's wit?
    • 4. The Craft
      Fairuza Balk played the "evil" Nancy in this movie..which was a bit of a shock for me since I knew her as innocent little Dorothy from "Return To Oz"..yikes!
    • 3. Independence Day
      Okay so the president of the US just *happened* to be an ex-fighter pilot? Convenient. But honestly, this movie kinda freaked me out, and even more after I read the prequel..and this coming from a gal who saw The Shining at age six and loved every second of it. P.S. All I gotta say is BRENT SPINER!! LOL!! He was hilarious!
    • 2. Reality Bites
      Winona's best movie ever! And a fantastic script - Troy (Ethan Hawke's character) is more saracastic than I am. Good for him!
    • 1. Last of the Mohicans
      A remake of the original and much better! The soundtrack is amazing and the movie theme still gives me chills.

    By: Eric Edwards
    • 10. As Good as it Gets
      It definatly is
    • 9. Armageddon
      This movie will withstand the test of time
    • 8. U.S. Marshals
      Tommy Lee Jones is simply the man....what else must I say!
    • 7. Halloween H2O
      If you love scary movies, you wouldn't ask
    • 6. The Usual Suspects
      Have you seen it......awsome. in one word, awsome
    • 5. Star War's - Episode 1
      Classic as soon as it was released
    • 4. The Devil's Advocate
      Un doubtably one of Al Pacino's Greatest performances
    • 3. Sling Blade
      No comment required
    • 2. Braveheart
      undisputably one of the best of all times
    • 1. The Matrix
      It has everything......plot, effects, soundtrack, and awsome actors/actresses

    By: Robert Marmel
    • 10. Dogfight
      Great 90s movie about Marines hijinks in early 60s San Francisco (before it was overrun by hippies). Perfectly captures that long since gone time when a guy could get away with just about anything. Sappy, but strangely good ending.
    • 9. From Dusk Till Dawn
      Wow! A Quentin Tarantio bloodbath that kept me breathless. This movie switches gears in a big way about 1/3 of the way through. George Clooney gives maybe his best performance as a smart, bad-ass criminal cursed with a psycho brother.
    • 8. Chasing Amy
      Kevin Smith finally lives up to the potential he showed in "Clerks". Excellent movie with great lines. Silent Bob says "see this movie".
    • 7. The Sixth Sense
      Rarely does a popular movie live up to its hype, but this one did. Usually I can guess "surprise" endings, but I couldn't figure this one out even though I knew in advance one was coming. Has some really unnerving scenes.
    • 6. Reservoir Dogs
      Quentin Tarantino made maybe the best movie ever about crime and criminals. Explores the indepth relationships between a group of criminals pulling off a big heist from an intellectual perspective. The real crime is that Steve Busemi didn't get an Oscar for his portrayal of "Mr Pink".
    • 5. Avalon
      Sentimental tear jerker about 3 generations of a Baltimore family. Not usually the kind of movie I go for, but incredibly well done.
    • 4. Kingpin
      Corny, but hilarious movie about a champion bowler who loses it all and gets it back. The scene with Woody drinking the "milk" from the bull had me literally rolling in the aisle.
    • 3. Scream 1& 2
      I wouldn't had thought it possible for any film to re-energize the 'slasher' genre in the 90s, but Scream pulled it off. Engaging plot, and great casting (especially the weird chemistry between Courtney Cox and David Arquette).
    • 2. PI
      Dark, disturbing, but ultimately brilliant independent (B&W) film about genius and the madness that can go with it. Wrestles with important questions about religion, greed, and the nature of the universe.
    • 1. Fight Club
      American Beauty, move over! Fight Club is hands down the best movie of the 90s. Perfect casting & one of the most original story lines ever.
    Excellent! Wayne's World isn't really a great movie, but merits a mention cause it pays homage to the early 90s slacker culture.

    By: Jayme
    • 10. Scream 1,2,&3
      I couldn't pick just one of them, all three are good. "Tell you what, why don't you guys go up to my parents room. You know you guys can talk... whatever!" "Subtlety, Stu. You should look it up!" "A lot of shit happens at the movies. People get robbed, shot, maimed, murdered..." "Stop pretending I wasn't the best you've ever had." "Oh, stop pretending I even remember!" "
    • 9. Austin Powers 1&2
      Again, I couldn't pick one or the other, they are both hilarious! "Throw me a frickin bone here!" "Bring it on skanky, b*tch!" "
    • 8. 10 Things I Hate About You
      I love it because of all the wit in it. "I'm sure you've thought about me naked, right?" "Am I that transparent? I want you, I need you! Oh baby, oh baby!"
    • 7. Drive Me Crazy
      I honestly don't know why I like this movie, I just do. "Prince Charming is a d*ck! Bring on the frogs!" "Ribbet!"
    • 6. American Pie
      It is so hilarious and I could watch it everyday and i would still laugh. "Stifler, f*ck! I mean, why do you gotta be so insensitive all the time?" "...What?"
    • 5. Dirty Dancing
      It's a classic. I just wanna live in that movie. "I carried a watermelon... I carried a watermelon??"
    • 4. Top Gun
      I love it because I love Tom Cruise and I love fighter planes. "I feel the need, the need for speed! Ow!"
    • 3. Empire Records
      Maybe it's because my band, Empire was named after it, but it's just such a cool movie! "I want you to hold these up against your chest, stand against, the wall and they're gonna take a photograph of you." "Why don't you go shove 'em up your a*s?" "...Because it would hurt a lot, Warren."
    • 2. Silence of the Lambs
      Anthony Hopkins is so scary! This movie is a classic! "A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver, with some fava beans, and a nice Chianti!"
    • 1. Cruel Intentions
      It's just so seductive! And... you get to see Ryan Philippe's butt! "Let's just say that Greg likes to tackle the tight-ends on, and off the field." "Oh really? Are you sh*ttin me?" "I sh*t you not!"

    By: Brock Klein
