Lots of great movie lists here, but since I basically missed the 90s (work and living abroad), would somebody suggest a movie that accurately reflects what life in the states was like in the 90s? Something along the lines of The Lost Boys. If you want a taste of what it was like in Santa Cruz in the 80s, that's it. They hired thousands of locals as extras, the comic book store was real, the mullets, the rides at the boardwalk, and the cars in the background are all exactly how I remembered Santa Cruz back then (minus the vampires of course).

I consider this decade to be the best in cinema, many favorite films all at once and you will not remember who remembered it: Dumb and dumber, Home Alone, Silence of the Lambs, Scream, Titanic, Mask.

As I review some lists online I am reminded how I have always felt that the 90s were kinda the most artistically bereft decade of my lifetime (from the 1970s to now) across all media.
That said, these are some that I felt were the most historically meritorious, which is the question as I read it.

Trois Couleurs Trilogy
The Big Lebowski
Eyes Wide Shut
Pulp Fiction
Chungking Express
Miller's Crossing
La Double Vie De Vernonique
The Shawshank Redemption
Reservoir Dogs
The Matrix

I feel like there are several I have left off, but off the top of my head (with a little help from a couple lists) this is what I got.

With the exception of music, which I thought it was a spectacular decade for, I agree. When this question comes up for every decade besides this one, I can usually answer right away, but for the '90s, I always struggle a bit.

Did the '90s have a phenomenon, i.e. like the '70s had Star Wars, the '80s had Indiana Jones, the '00s had Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings, the '10s had the MCU? I'm not sure if it did. You could sort of argue that it was Pixar, but they came along in the latter half of the decade and you could roll those movies up with the Disney blockbusters, which had been mainstays at the top of the box office for a very long time. There's another argument to be made for Tarantino making indie movies mainstream, but I wouldn't call that a phenomenon-level breakthrough.

But anyway, enough '90s bashing. Here's my list:

1. Fargo
2. Pulp Fiction
3. Leolo
4. The Silence of the Lambs
5. L.A. Confidential
6. Crumb
7. Three Colors Trilogy
8. Toy Story
9. Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me
10. The Sweet Hereafter
11. Dazed and Confused
12. Toy Story 2
13. Unforgiven
14. Delicatessen
15. Insomnia
16. The Long Day Closes
17. Babe
18. Mr. Death
19. Glengarry Glen Ross
20. Chungking Express
21. The Secret of Roan Inish
22. Groundhog Day
23. Rushmore
24. The Fugitive
25. The Truman Show

I really can't agree with that. The 90s saw Kieslowski at his prime, Wong Kar Wai exploding onto the cinematic scene (4 films in the 90s), Jean Pierre Jeunet's first feature, Korean new wave films like Christmas in August and Peppermint Candy, a resurgence in French cinema with films like La Haine, 7 films released by Takeshi Kitano, the continuation of Iranian New Wave with Mohsen Makmhalbaf and Abbas Kiarostami making some beautiful cinema (Gabbeh, Taste of Cherry, Close Up), Pedro Almodovar advancing his career with All About My Mother and The Flower of My Secret, 'Open Your Eyes', the Spanish film that spawned the terrible remake called 'Vanilla Sky', 4 David Lynch films plus
