Interesting list! I've seen about 90% of these too. I was pleasantly surprised to see you included "Very Bad Things" because I don't know many people who've seen it. I have made a ton of my friends watch it. "Empire Records" is also a classic. Ok, I could go on and on. Just wanted to say, great hub :0)

Kiiiinda shocked Jurassic Park isn't on the list, but to each his/her own. I'm really surprised at how moronic someone can be to go on a rant about the "ranking" of the films, then busting out the N word even after a) it's a "My Personal Favorites" list b) it's a chronological listing, not a ranking from best to worst and c) the fact that it's chronological has already been mentioned in the comments by rb101182. It's almost as if PISSEDOFF90SKID is...a braindead pile of shit?

EHHH 6 years ago

This list is BS >:P

mike 6 years ago

Boyz n the hood?

Esack 6 years ago

good job getting office space on there. Also i don't want to be that guy but wheres men in black?

jaz 6 years ago

i've watched bout 90% on the list, most of em titles are really good, but 100 titles in a decade wont cut it for most of us, many good films are left out. But then again its his "personal favorites" list. Probably, so that others might find titles they've missed out on. Overall, its an adequate list for those who weren't "90esque."

horrrribleeeeeee 6 years ago

Um, did you seriously put I Know What You Did Last Summer on there???? LOL

Great List!

Joe Joe 6 years ago

Fairly good list. I would agree with several other suggestions people put on here and a few no one has mentioned also, but good list over all.

mike 6 years ago

I like Goodfellas at one, I get that but Forrest Gump is way to low. I agree Clerks needs to be listed, most movies I see are good movies but ranks need adjusted

Ebony 6 years ago

Beatles maniac 6 years ago

Edward scissorhands should be #1

Joffa 6 years ago

This list is a joke simply for the fact that Jurassic Park is not there, are you joking?

And how can Titanic be at 64?

Terrible effort by whoever put this list together.

ACE 6 years ago

No Braveheart, Philiadelphia, Matrix, Tombstone, Rudy, Bad Boys, Face/Off, Dogma, Desperado, Under Siege, Reservoir Dogs, The Rock, The Shawshank Redemption, Independence Day, Armageddon. WHo made this list? Someone born in 2000.

Who knew movie titles could cause such passion. Thanks for posting the list. i was looking for titles for a game we play as a family at Christmas. Most helpful.

Really? Posting a top 100 chronologically? And not including Shawshank? Shame on you, sir!

not having shawshank is an atrocity.

Garrett 6 years ago

If it is chronological than it should be ten movies from each year in the 90's

Andrew 6 years ago

I love most of these movies! Can I add The Craft, Shawshank Redemption, Romy and Michelles hs reunion, What's Eating Gilbert Grape and To Die For? Didn't see em on the list :)

GW 5 years ago

The #1 movie of all time missed the list? Shawshank Redemption? You are officially banned for life for making any more lists in public.

cesar 5 years ago

sweet list. But ummm WHERES THE LION KING?!

Cassie 5 years ago

I don't think the list is in order of greatness. If you were any bit observant, you would see that the movies are listed chronologically.

wesley 5 years ago

where's Dumb And Dumber, Happy Gilmore, Balck Sheep, Beverly Hills Ninja,and Tommy Boy?

dan 5 years ago

whers drop dead fred?

Danny B 5 years ago

Wheres The Matrix?

Laura 5 years ago

Just want to throw out there that the movie Great Expectations was nothing like the book. Very few things were in the actual book. So I just want to say if you are going to put that on your “Top 100 Movies of the 90’s” you should probably also include: The Shawshank Redemption or The Boondock Saints, which in my opinion are some of the best movies of the 90's. I mean really you put Austin Powers and Can't Hardly Wait up there over them? How about you go read a book like I don't know Great Expectations by Charles Dickens which is a classic and see that the movie was straight up terrible, and butchered his wonderful book. Then once you read that book and gain some knowledge maybe you can put up a decent list of "Top 100 Movies of the 90’s" in actual order not chronological.

You don't like their list, don't read it. Make your own list instead of complaining about what somebody else likes.

me 4 years ago

This list sucks, just because it is actually missing the best movies....Braveheart, Forrest Gump, The Matrix, Dumb and Dumber, Philadelphia, Beauty and the BEast, and many others. Or does it just include movies not voted for the OScars?????

Eduardo 4 years ago

Don't tell mom the babysitter's dead, Mrs. doubtfire, Scream, Boogie Nights, Fear, Jerry Maguire, A Time to Kill, are all of my favorite 90's movies on this 90's list but you forgot to add Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie starring Luke Perry to this list this movie is another great 90's movie.

although it is not explicitly denounced, one can easily deduce that this list is chronologically ordered by production date

Qcn mi sa spiegare,cosa ca.zz.o c'entrano i guns'n'roses figuranti negli anni 80 ???? A mo,se so skappati,nell'89,99 periodico,po esse pure,ma siccome quel tipo de musica,che me dispiace solo che i giovani d'oggi nn apprezzano,nn comprendeva quasi mai,le cosi dette "COVER" si,a volte c'erano,ma magari come intrattenimento prima di un concerto,altrimenti era solo MUSICHETTA,ascoltata tra no spino e n'atro !!!! OK ???
