A list of films that I don’t think have been mentioned yet.

Ed Wood

Falling Down

The Addams Family

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure

Wayne’s World

Dumb & Dumber

Happiness 

Truly Madly Deeply

Let him have it

The Crying Game

The Fugitive 

Die Hard with a Vengeance 

Crash (you know, the one about people who feel sexy when they think about road traffic accidents).

It bothers me that the Graf 'Heat' 7" link on the previous page is broken, so here it is again 

They had some great shirts too, here's the one for this record which I did snag at a show.

Thinking about 90s Sci Fi - I'd have to put Jurassic Park, Fifth Element, and Terminator 2 at the top I think, but The Matrix would have to be right up there too. Really should give that another watch some time soon.

Unless I’m very much mistaken it appears no one has said “Speed”.

I’d possibly go as far to say that was the definitive 90’s action movie, ahead of “The Rock”, “Con Air”, “Face/Off” etc. The simplicity of it (or the “high concept”) is probably a big factor in it for me.

It’s sort of the Die Hard of the 90’s (although not quite as good admittedly). The Keanu/Dennis Hopper dynamic definitely has echoes of the one between Willis and Rickman.

You know if a film is being referenced/parodied on the likes of The Simpsons and Father Ted then it’s done something right.

The X-Files also parodied 'Speed' in an episode called 'Drive', it was the first time that Bryan Cranston had worked with Vince Gilligan, and his performance in the episode lead him to being cast by Gilligan as Walter White in Breaking Bad ten years later.

There's also a hilarious Milhouse gag in one of the episodes where he compared something to Speed 2, but with a bus instead of a ship.

Goodfellas, Shawshank Redemption and Heat are the ones that I think of immediately.  

Guilty pleasure films:  Point Break, Home Alone, Toy Story, Jurassic Park, Mrs Doubtfire, Saving Private Ryan, Independence Day, American Pie.

Massive lack of Tom Hanks films on that list. He was arguably the biggest film star of the 90s.

No Forest Gump, Apollo 13, Saving Private Ryan, Green Mile, Philadelphia, or Toy Story on the list?

An underrated one.

pleasantville

good film! recently started watching some youtube channel that sits on a sofa with special effects guys and look at the best and the worst by slowing it down, zooming in etc and telling you how they did it, what they did wrong and what is awesome (started watching it because they also sometimes do stunt men which is better, the scene in the last star wars film with rey and kylo fighting the red guys, the 1 scene I actually liked, showed just how bad that scene is front a stunt man / fight co-ordination persepctive)

they do 2/3 minutes of Pleasantville saying just how good it is, not just the way they did the colours but the way the colours project on to everything else (reflections etc) they said its incredible what they did for that time

the saddest thing about those 2 lists are 21/23 of the last decade are part of a series / sequels (and the 2 that aren't are remakes) whereas only 11/25 are in the 90s 

no bond, transformers or pirates on either, looks weird, would dominate the 00s
