Monday, March 7 by George Root

The 10 best movies of the 90's are some of the most iconic films ever made. The early 90's still had that experimental feeling to it brought over from the 80's, and new technology helped to fuel the creative fires. See which one of the 10 best movies of the 90's you remember and plan to see the ones you have yet to experience.

  1. "Goodfellas" (1990). This is one of the great gangster movies. It ranks as one of the 10 best movies of the 90's for its cast that consisted of Joe Pesci, Robert De Niro and Ray Liotta. The fact that it won an Oscar also helps.
  2. "The Usual Suspects" (1995). This makes the list of the 10 best movies of the 90's just for the way it is expertly written and delivered. You never suspect the ending until it finally happens. This is definitely one of the biggest twist movies ever.
  3. "The Matrix" (1999). Even in 1999, it was hard to find a movie so unique that people can honestly say they had never seen anything like it before. "The Matrix" (1999) was something that captivated audiences for weeks during its initial release, and still goes down as one of the 10 best movies of the 90's to this day.
  4. "Forrest Gump" (1994). The main character, Forrest Gump, accomplished more by accident than most people could ever hope to accomplish on purpose. You get involved in this story from beginning to end, and the audience winds up caring more about what happens than Forrest does.
  5. "The Silence of the Lambs" (1991). Anthony Hopkins portrays the ultimate evil in the form of Hannibal Lecter in "The Silence of the Lambs" (1991). This member on the list of the 10 best movies of the 90's is one film that people never forget.
  6. "Braveheart" (1995). Many people saw "Braveheart" (1995) when it was released in theaters, but even more people can recognize the image of Mel Gibson in blue facepaint giving one of the best motivational speeches ever filmed. This epic is definitely one of the 10 best movies of the 90's.
  7. "Saving Private Ryan" (1998). This movie is often both praised and reviled for its realism. War veterans hail it as an accurate representation of the horrors of war, while critics say it goes too far to try and bring the war experience to a movie audience. Either way, this is one of the 10 best movies of the 90's.
  8. "Toy Story" (1995). Disney had several hit movies in the 90's, but few were as successful as "Toy Story" (1995). This movie was ready-made for merchandise and has generated billions in revenue for the Disney Corporation.
  9. "The Sixth Sense" (1999). Just when you think you know what is going on in "The Sixth Sense" (1999), something happens to remind you that you have no clue what is going on. This was one of the greatest suspense movies ever made and one of the 10 best movies of the 90's.
  10. "The Lion King" (1994). This Disney classic inspired sequels, television cartoon series and even a Broadway musical. It was loved by audiences all over the world and become a huge international hit.
