Article: Top 10 1990s Film Volume 1

10.Home Alone (1990 – 1992)

One year after Kevin McCallister was left home alone and had to defeat a pair of bumbling burglars, he accidentally finds himself stranded in New York City and the same criminals are not far behind. With a likeable lead and the villain is totally memorable in this joyous and fun film plus it is funny, it is entertaining from start to finish in this likeable film.

9.The Matrix

When a beautiful stranger leads computer hacker Neo to a forbidding underworld, he discovers the shocking truth the life he knows is the elaborate deception of an evil cyber intelligence. At least this try to be something different which I admire, it is certainly a thrill ride type of film and the visual is certainly out of this world.

8.Miracle On 34th Street

A lawyer and a little girl called Susan Walker must prove that a man claiming to be Santa Claus is the real thing. Being a remake it can go either way but this one is generally uplifting and it just a really nice film, it is a Christmas film but it has got a beautiful story that is moving and generally sincere.

7.Independence Day

The aliens are coming and their goal is to invade and destroy Earth. Fighting superior technology, mankind’s best weapon is the will to survivor. Character study action film that just work really well and it is truly epic, it is definitely memorable in this action-packed film, which is watchable from start to finish, in this well-crafted film

6.Titanic

A seventeen-year-old aristocrat falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard the luxurious, ill fated R.M.S. Titanic. James Cameron is a brilliant director and the pacing for this film is just perfect and the soundtrack is amazing, the main two lead got good chemistry together and it is well casted and it doesn’t rushed it, that is the key to this film which is truly captivating and with stunning view.

5.Sleepy Hollow

In 1799, young police detective Ichabod Crane is sent from New York City to a small town called Sleepy Hollow to investigate a series of murders. Gothic horror period piece, which is certainly my style of horror film, it also generally spooky with an all star cast in this atmospheric and gorgeous looking film.

4.Daylight

Disaster in a New York tunnel as explosions collapse both ends of it. One hero tries to help the people inside find their way to safety. I’m not normally a massive fan of Sylvester Stallone but this one is exciting and superb, it is a perfect disaster film as it is generally exhilarating and overall this will certainly entertained you.

 3.The Witches

A young boy stumbles onto a witch convention and must stop them, even after he has been turned into a mouse. Eerie and spooky tale that get you under your skin and it has got a likeable lead, Anjelica Houston is magnificent as the Grand High Witch and it try to balance the laugh and it work really well, it is certainly memorable in a film you can revisit anytime you like.

2.Jumanji

When two kids find and play a magical board game, they release a man trapped in it for decades and a host of dangers that can only be stopped by finishing the game. Definitely one of the best Robin Williams film as this is superbly made, with amazing CGI/SFX made this generally enjoyable and it is thrilling from start to finish in this majestic film.

1.Toy Story (1995 – 1999)

Toy Story is about the secret life of toys when people are not around and go on so many adventure meeting new people along the way. Both films is consistent and they are heartfelt and uplifting which is suitable for all ages, the vocal talent is outstanding with a star studded cast that brim with comic timing, it is life affirming and overall it is a pure escapism style of film.

  1. Some great selections there Mark. It’s hard to pick a top ten from a whole decade but here are some alternative selections for you to consider:
    1. Quentin Tarantino – Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. So different from anything that went before and started hi directing career.
    2.The Coen Brothers – have made some great films, including these in the 1990s – Miller’s Crossing, Barton Fink, The Hudsucker Proxy, The Big Lebowski, and, probably the best of the lot, Fargo.
    3. Jack Nicholson has made some great films but As Good As it Gets is one of my favourites.
    4. We both like Gary Oldman and his portrayal of Dracula in Bram Stoker’s Dracula was another great performance.
    5. Clint Eastwood has acted in and directed some great films and Unforgiven shows off both of these talents.
    6. Danny Boyle’s first two films he directed in the 1990s – Shallow Grave and Trainspotting broke new ground in cinema.
    7. Kevin Spacey, although he is disgraced now he featured in some great films in the 1990s, including Glengarry Glen Ross, Se7en, L A Confidential, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, American Beauty, and my favourite, The Usual Suspects.
    8. Steven Spielberg has directed some great films and Schindler’s List is undoubtedly the best film ever made about the Holocaust.
    9. The Silence of the Lambs – best film made about serial killers. Anthony Hopkins masterclass in acting.
    10. The Addams Family brought the old TV series back to life.
