If the 80s were my introduction to movies, the 90s were when my version of pop culture as it collided with the movies being made. This is when I was introduced to the passion that I have for movies that I have today. Movies like Dances with Wolves proved that great Western epics still existed and later Unforgiven reaffirmed that belief. Silence of the Lambs brought a new kind of terror based in a very real world.

Tom Hanks made the 90s his, with movies like Philadelphia, A League of Their Own, and Forrest Gump just to name a few. Opposite him was Julia Roberts. Her films like Pretty Woman, Runaway Bride, and My Best Friend’s Wedding put her on top.

Some other big names also rose to the top during the 90s. One of the biggest was a young Leonardo DiCaprio, who captured the spotlight with films like What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, The Basketball Diaries, and Titanic. This was also a great decade for Meg Ryan who made hit movies like Sleepless in Seattle, Courage Under Fire, and You’ve Got Mail. 

I think some of the most important movies we’ve seen came from the 90s as well. Between Schindler’s List and Philadelphia we saw how Hollywood could confront real problems and bring them to life without cheapening them.

This was also the decade where Disney woke back up and gave us some of the most impressive animated films we’d ever seen. Thanks to great new leadership, Disney produced films like Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King.

Here are the films I’ve reviewed from the 90s:

Don’t for get about the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 2000s, or 2010s!
