Heya folks, nothing fancy just yet.  Just thought I'd start the thread announcing that I'll now be accepting lists from everyone who wants to participate. 

Along with all the usual Top 25 stuff, here are the rules:

1.  It's the 1990s, smartass.  I don't want to see any Edison shorts or trains pulling into stations on your list.

2.  The film has to have been released theatrically or on video between the 1st of January 1990 to the 31st December 1999.

3.  There will be a SUPPLEMENTAL LIST - I want you to send me a top 5 list of the Most 90s Film of the 90s.  They don't have to be the best films, but they have to a film that embodies the decade in every single way - fashion, technology, music, all that stuff.  I'll lengthen it out to a top ten or fifteen depending on how many differences there are. 

4.  The deadline for list submissions is the 9th April.  A weird date, I know, but I'm snowed under with work until then and won't be able to dedicate the proper time to the thread.

2: you mean the initial release right? Just making sure you're not including a loophole for movies from 89 that just got a video release a year following after initial release. :)

I've got the 25 done, but I'm going to think about it for a bit and see if anything else jumps out at me.

As for the supplemental 5, I have no idea what the 90s were about and couldn't even hazard a guess as to what was the most 90s of the 90s movies. I could do that for the 60s in a heartbeat, but I didn't pay much attention to the 90s? I was too busy being old and married and out of the loop.  ;)

Yes.  The film's initial release.  Anything that doesn't fall between those dates will be discounted.  For simplicity's sake, we'll use the US theatrical calendar for that decade.

Working on it now.  This is a tough one.  The 90's has a lot of great movies, but I think my list will be missing a lot of the obvious ones since I've either never seen them or grew that attached to them.

I'm sure they'll be lots of links to give people ideas.  Here is one:

I'll give this a shot, but I'll have to look up a lot of these on IMDB to make sure they came out when I think they did. That's gonna take a while.

I could put together a supplemental list as long as the regular one.

OK, I had to whittle my list down from about 60 movies but I got it submitted.

I also sent in a Top 5 for the supplemental list.

Hint:  A good resource to view titles of movies released in the '90s is Box Office Mojo.  They have yearly box office charts going back to the '80s.  Makes it easy to skim through each year looking for movies.  It was a big help for me to come up with an initial list of 60 films, allowing me to make sure I didn't forget any gems.

As I formulate my list, I'm realizing how heavy it is on kids' movies. I think that's all I watched in the 90s.

All of those banner movies were on my initial uncut list of 60+ films.  Only 3 made my final list.

Nice work on the banners, D.B.   :)
