Favourite Movie From Each Year Of The 1990s


I reckon DKR is bog average. And I loved loved loved the other two


It is,


It’s a superhero movie and it’s still better than 90% of superhero movies. Bane is great, some of the scenes are great. It’s just not the masterpiece that Dark Knight is. It craps all over Ben Affleck or George Clooney Batman.


Agree it was better than most superhero movies, no doubt, but Bane sucks and the plot was stupid and the ending was stupid and it was 40 minutes too long and and and and etc

For me, it was exactly what i expected - the movie that they were forced to make instead of the movie they wanted to make before Ledger died. I think I’ll always wonder how good that movie might have been


Roma is good…on at the moment and nominated for a few upcoming awards.


Yeah, I really wish I could see it, but seeing foreign language films whilst living in Japan and having to read subtitles in kanji, I always need to wait for a dvd torrent or something.


Netflix if you have it, you can choose the subtitle language.


Cheers, I really need to set myself up properly to watch stuff one day. No time… toddlers… something something…


I have both on DVD in my library, and rate them both highly.


Rises was always going to be the hardest gig after knight.

The prison stuff was daft. I was annoyed at the end when he couldn’t quite finish of bane.

The only Nolan film I haven’t seen is following, got it on DVD but haven’t watched it yet. Imo he has not made a poor film yet.


The insider is such an underrated movie,just brilliant. Pacino and Crowe both at their best


1990 - Goodfellas
1991 - The Silence of the Lambs
1992 - The Last of the Mohicans
1993 - Schindlers List
1994 - Leon the Professional
1995 - Seven/Heat
1996 - Fargo
1997 - The Game
1998 - The Thin Red Line
1999 - Magnolia


I just remember the tension building throughout the movie. And no matter what you think of Crowe - he put in a period of outstanding acting performances in the 90’s.


I just realised there is another absolute classic that was released that year. Wag The Dog. An brilliant movie that is as relevant today as it was when it was made.

It’s actually quite incredible that with Gattaca and The Castle, three of my top 5 movies ever were released in the same year.


1990 - Total Recall
1991 - Toy Soldiers
1992 - Wayne’s World
1993 - Groundhog Day (geez this year was tough to pick)
1994 - hmmm do I portray myself as a connoisseur by going Shawshank Redemption or do I pick my actual favourite Dumb & Dumber?
1995 - Apollo 13
1996 - Independence Day
1997 - The Castle
1998 - Truman Show
1999 - Office Space (fuarrrk another cracking year)

1991: JFK - back, and to the left.

Also @Captain_Jack Napoleon Dynamite certainly wasn’t 1996. (2004)


Hanabi (1997) is a personal favourite…I don’t think anyone has mentioned it.


One I’d forgotten about is Highway 61, a Canadian dark comedy from 1991.


You are right, no one has mentioned it. l haven’t seen it, but it is written and directed by Takeshi, a person l rate highly. Sounds great, l will be investigating how to find it.
