Top Ten Best Movies of the 1990s


The Top Ten

1 Pulp Fiction

This is well directed movie with excellent sreenplay and chronology. Music makes every scene good. Also, there is great dialouge and roles are very very good. One of my favorite movies.

oh c'mon, Pulp Fiction HAS to be in the top ten! Hell, top 5 at least!

You can't know the facts until you know the fiction. - jarjar36

Just An All-Round Great Movie - BeatlesFan1964

2 The Shawshank Redemption

You people are ignorant if you think pulp fiction is better than this movie.

Lets ask ourselves a question a movie about basically nothing that doesn't even give us an answer by the end or a movie about a daring escape you decide. #pulpfictionisoverrated

I couldn’t choose which one to pick. Forrest Gump, Of this. I just picked random because I couldn’t decide

Greatest movie ever created

3 Forrest Gump

Made the line "Run Forest! Run! " very famous and possibly Tom Hanks greatest role in a movie to date. - jamienicholls

its the best tom hanks movie
this movie made me cry

Once I saw this I was like wow! That was a great movie

4 GoodFellas

I love films that just tell a story. and I think this lists really reflects that. There is really no judgment in most of the films on this list. They don't have an alternative motive. They are just fantastic stories. - Badoosh45

5 Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Machines could one day take the control of the world if mankind is not carefoul with those things.
The Movie is a warning of that... - MatrixGuy

Terminator 2: Review
Well since its 1994 and there's not much u know... Special effects. 93% in rotten tomatoes. I can't decide which one is better Genisys or Judgement day because they used too much action, Arnold being silly. But in Judgement Day, I like everything about it. Really a good movie 10/10

6 Jurassic Park

The movie that errupted the dinomania all over the world - MatrixGuy

Definitely one of the all time best movies of all time.

It's the movie that marked my life

7 Schindler's List

The Best movie ever

The shame of the 2nd world war is realistically showed in this great movie - MatrixGuy

Amazing and extremely sad.

8 Toy Story

Changed CGI Forever and made Disney great again after a disappointing decade in the 1980s. - jamienicholls

Come on! This was Pixar's best movie, how is it not in the top ten

My first favorite is Lion King but this is the second

One of my favorite movies

9 The Silence of the Lambs

Best show of the year isn't #1?

10 Fight Club

I'm sorry but how is this not in the top ten? Hell should even be in the top 5 at least.

Love this movie. Will always love it. It gets some undeserved hate - Justintime221

Never break the first two rules. A classic and easily one of my favorite movies.

The Contenders

11 The Matrix

Should be higher

Its not my favorite series, but the first movie was great. And It's definitely the most influential movie of the 90s. Everyone started copying the way they did their SFX. - VADERtheIMPALER

This is one movie that could actually be true. Who knows? , we all could be dreaming. - westofohio

A Virtual Science Fiction that redefined action and philosophy - MatrixGuy

12 Titanic

Titanic, although overrated the effects of the time cannot be ignored and the drama is unforgettable. - jamienicholls

It made a BILLION DOLLARS! - mneilan

The Masterpiece of the Masterpieces - MatrixGuy

I love it! and I almost think it in no no. 1 in this film

13 The Lion King

Probably the best Disney movie ever - dalekdoctor2011

Should be number one


14 Saving Private Ryan

The best scene was easily the Omaha beach in the beginning - Ajkloth

15 Beauty and the Beast

This is the best Disney movie ever made, better than all the rest I must say!

16 Reservoir Dogs

Tarantino's first directorial effort was fantastic although ultimately I value it below Pulp Fiction. Both films are great. - jarjar36

17 Men In Black
18 Fargo
19 Star Wars - Episode I, The Phantom Menace

Most underrated Star Wars movie of all time. People need to stop judging it because of jar jar binks. The movie had great music, visual effects, and memorable characters. My favorite scene was the pod race scene when Anakin won the race. So far this and episode 7 had the highest box offices in the series. Don't listen to the haters. If there is a Star Wars movie to hate it, is episode 2 attack of the clones.

The Star Wars prequel trilogy starting movie with the unforgettable race scene - MatrixGuy

Although not achieving much critical acclaim the movie was a box office success. - jamienicholls

Easily the worst star wars movie ever made, nowhere near as good as episode 2 Attack of the Clones which is easily the best prequel. Horrible, horrible movie whose only redeeming quality id John Williams' score. - jarjar36
