5 great 90s movies that time forgot

5 great 90s movies that time forgot It’s been said the 1970s were the golden age of film, but we beg to differ. The nineties has surely proven to be the decade of great movies with indie directors like Quentin Tarantino and the Coen brothers busted out of the art house and into the Oscars. It was also the decade for a great time for blockbusters, as CGI technology exploded and filmmakers like Steven Spielberg and James Cameron made the most of the thrilling new possibilities. That’s why we decided to list our favourite all-time 90s films that we don’t talk about enough. Most of the nominees listed are completely lost masterpieces, and others might be flawed. But these interesting films still deserve recognition. What all these films do have in common is a quality that is special, a voice that is unique, and a point that has, either upon arrival or over time, completely been lost.

The Matrix (1999)

https://youtu.be/m8e-FF8MsqU Directors: Lana Wachowski, Lilly Wachowski Cast: Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Laurence Fishburne Most ’90s moment: Less a movie moment, more a fashion moment – those black leather trench coats and wraparound shades. Best line: ‘Welcome to the real world.’

Most ’90s moment: When it turns out the alien mothership is compatible with Windows 95.

Best line: ‘Let’s kick the tires and light the fires, Big Daddy.’

 Pulp Fiction (1994)

https://youtu.be/s7EdQ4FqbhY Director: Quentin Tarantino Cast: Samuel L Jackson, John Travolta, Uma Thurman Most ’90s moment: Uma Thurman’s Mia Wallace puffs away over dinner at Jack Rabbit Slims. Who said smoking wasn’t cool? Best line: ‘And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers.’ Blood, guns, gangsters, drugs, more blood and cheeseburgers; Quentin Tarantino’s disorientating black-comedy masterpiece is a lesson in post-modern storytelling and one of the most iconic films of the ’90s.

Home Alone (1990)

https://youtu.be/owU3lMxd6jI Director: Chris Columbus Cast: Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern Most ’90s moment: Kevin using Micro Machines as booby traps.
