Movies: I need some films from the 90s?

I'm doing a list of my favourite 90s movies, but can only name 30. They are pretty popular ones on imdb, such as Schindler's List, The Matrix, Seven, Silence Of The Lambs, Life Is Beautiful, American History X, Shawshank Redemption, Green Mile, etc. And I'm going to see Saving Private Ryan, Goodfellas and Pulp Fiction in a couple of weeks time.


Any recommendations? (trust me, I've seen hardly any films from the 90s, just really well known ones)

Thanks in advance :)

BQ: How does the 90s rate, film wise among other decades?

BBQ: Favourite 90s album?


Tamara: Go onto R&P section now. We need a Bloodhound gang fan.

Gob: Good album choice, RHCP rules

    There are millions of excellent movies from the 90's. It would take ages to list them all! I would check out all the 90's movies from the Top 250, then maybe action movies from the 90's, urban hood movies from the 90's etc(there were a lot of the latter 2).

    BQ - The 90's were definitely an excellent decade for movies
