Alternatively - type the name of the movie you're after (with the name of an actor if you want to be more specific) into google images.

Pulp Fiction is probably my favorite from the 90s.



My top ten films of the 1990s, all in my top 25 of all-time currently (I love the 90s, what can I say):
1. Pulp Fiction
2. Fight Club
3. Goodfellas
4. The Shawshank Redemption
5. American Beauty
6. Magnolia
7. The Big Lebowski
8. Fargo
9. The Usual Suspects
10. Schindler's List
Probably tied with the 1970s as my favorite decade for film, probably because I was weened on 90s American cinema.

I am assuming the above list is a joke.... Clearly, many of those are the worst films made in he 90s, or perhaps ever.

Brain Donors? Class Act?

geez. people are so uptight around here... it was the 90s! im reminiscing...

excuse me for not naming the same 10 movies everybody else has named .

for a place called movie-forums, youd think people would name other movies than the typical best of the best (matrix, pulp fiction etc etc), go into depth a little bit when talking the 90s, thats all im doing... no, theyre not oscar worthy.

even a bad movie (like class act) can be a good movie.

Who's uptight? You are right this is movie forums, and people can surely say what they want about any films, which is what I was doing. We ARE going in depth talking about the 90s. This thread isn't "favorite films of the 90s", It's best films of the 90s. I would think that means the films people think are the most well crafted, well played, and well written films of the 90s. Class Act just doesn't fall into any of these catagories. I am not saying don't like the film, as everyone has guilty pleasures, but do you really think Class Act is a better film than something like Unforgiven or L.A Confidential?

Also, people are going to disagree with you from time to time on the forums, and developing somewhat of a thick skin around here is recommended. Calling someone out on a bad film isn't being uptight, it's simply a discussion on a discussion board. That is what is great about these boards, you can state what you like, and I can say it's crap.

What fun!

Meanwhile, your avatar is cool, and from one of the best films of the 90s...IMO.

i was just trying to stray from the norm... which is what everybody else has already posted... theres literally hundreds of good movies from the 90s that no one has named... just saying.

again, no i dont think class act is the best film ever far from it... thats not my point... i guess my posts are more suited towards "your favorite movies from the 90's" or "movies of the 90s", but i havent seen a thread like that, so i posted em here... something different for a change... if you can find a more fitting thread for my posts, please, point me to it. id be happy to move my posts where they are not going to be ridiculed.

are there any movies that i did post that you liked?

and like i said, the "best" films dont necessarily have to be the best films... im sure you could agree with me to some extent... i added some cheesy/bad movies on purpose (like, "if looks could kill" or "the pest"), because, to me, they are represantative of the 90s just as much as the best of the best blockbusters we could all name over and over (and over).

im not new to boards... just this one. again, as a fan of many different types of films, just trying to stray away from the norm.
