The 90’s brought us some of our favorite blockbuster and quirky cult film hits. In June, we’ll be getting our slap-bands and scrunchies ready because we are having a 90’s Night here at Howl at the Moon! To get a jump on all things 90’s we’ve compiled a list of our favorite movies from the era (in no particular order)!
Starting the decade off with “Goodfellas” (1990). If you’re wanting to see a good movie that is a staple in mafia films, look no further.
Skipping ahead to the year 1992, we’ve got “Wayne’s World”. This classic comedy gets everyone’s head banging during Bohemian Rhapsody.
Next on our list is everyone’s favorite dinosaur thriller! Who wouldn’t want to travel to “Jurassic Park” (1993) to get a glimpse at some of our favorite prehistoric creatures.
Starting out the mid-90’s, we’ve got the movie that has us ordering a Quarter Pounder from McDonalds as a Royale with cheese. Quentin Tarantino’s classic “Pulp Fiction” (1994) has the wit and violence you’re looking for in a Tarantino film!
When we think of the 90’s, the most staple in that era’s movie culture had to be “Clueless” (1995). Could we think of a more 90’s film? AS IF!
The Cohen Brothers rounded out the mid-90’s with the cult classic, “Fargo” (1996). Wanting us to believe this a true story, the Cohen Brothers open up a world of seemingly sweet mid-westerners and violence, oh dontcha know.
The late 90’s had some real gems when it comes to film. “Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion” (1997) is no exception! When big names like Lisa Kudrow, Janeane Garofalo and Alan Cumming are cast you know it’s a comedy to last a lifetime!
What do you do when the rug that really ties the room together gets ruined? In the forever classic, “Big Lebowski” (1998), sees The Dude, and his bowling buddies embark on a quest for restitution for a ruined rug.
Rounding out the 90’s we have “10 Things I Hate About You” (1999). Everyone’s crushes, Heath Ledger and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, set out to win the hearts of two sisters, Julia Stiles and Larisa Oleynik. This high-school-set film is a classic that will never get old!
Lastly, and certainly not least, we have the movie that changed our perspective on the world around us. “The Matrix” (1999) made us question the reality around us and gave us one of the best sci-fi films to date.
