I didn't think I'd get over 50 myself.  But here I am, with 60+.  A child of the 90's myself, I seem to have a personal connection with some of these movies.  A lot of these movies.  Painful but, oh well, time to whittle it down!

Question:  1997 saw the Special Editions of Star Wars Episodes 4, 5, and 6.  (I apologize if I've brought back any bad memories there.)  But, per the rules, the theatrical rereleases would count, is that correct?  Disney also saw the rereleases of many of their classic animated films to theater.  They could be counted as well, right?

Sent my list in! Wooohooo!  :highfive:

When I went through the list of movies on Box Office Mojo I wound up with 57 movies, which surprised the hell out of me because I didn't think I saw all that many movies in the 90s.

I don't think rereleases should count, since the films themselves are still the products of previous years (no matter what George tries to do). It's like the situation mentioned before about an 89 film getting a video release in 90. Technically it is seeing a form of release in the 90s, but it isn't a 90s film.

This is going to be a tricky list for me, since an absurd number of my favorite films are from that decade (I think at least 4 of my Top 11 fall in there, and I've always tried to avoid putting an order on them). At least my number 1 will be a shockingly obvious pick that everyone should have.

And having recently watched Reality Bites, I think I'll actually go for that supplementary list for once as well.

Fuck me, I didn't think I'd have a preliminary list of 60 for this. Coincidentally, that seems to be a popular number for prelims.

Yeah, no Star Wars. 

Except for Phantom Menace, which was released in 1999, right?

Yeah, I guess that one counts.  If you're fucking crazy enough to put it on your list.  :)

It's making my Most 90s Films of the 90s list. It embodies all the lost hopes and broken dreams that the decade, century, and millennium ended on.

D.B. should have made up a Phantom Menace themed banner.  Someone out there has to think it's great.

Phantom Menace has actually grown on me over the years.  I actually enjoy it now much more than I did when it was first released.  Not that it made my list or anything.

I'm up to eight so far. But did I get my banner changed, thanks once again to DB Barnes.

Just submitted mine. It actually wasn't too difficult, since I just used my ratings on IMDB for everything I've seen from the 90s. Once I got the 10s and 9s in, there was only about 5 slots left, and they were pretty easy to select.

Pretty excited for this list (as I am for all movie lists), time to see how the decade of my birth has turned out in people's film-going eyes.

I'm actually going to rewatch/watch for the first time several movies that I've been meaning to rewatch/watch for a long time. Should help me narrow my list down.

It's tough getting it to 50, and I've had to look up a few to make sure in was released in the 90's (a few turned out to be not 90's)

In coming up with this list I am facing a singular fact: I hate the '90s.

You are the most curmudgeonly curmudgeon that ever curmudgeoned.

But, truth be told, I hated the 90s, too.

Are you talking in terms of its pop culture output or just in general?
