The 1990s were a singular decade in cinema. Never before has the world seen so many hair drapes, thumb rings, and mini skirts wrapped in flannel. It popularized the practice of having a popular artist sing a rap song about the events of the movie during the end credits, which should never have gone out of style as far as I’m concerned. And visual effects experienced a major shift from practical to digital, with decidedly mixed results. (For every Jurassic Park, there were 5 Spawns.)
If you grew up during the 90s and want to fill your veins with nostalgia, or are too young to remember them and want to experience what it was like to wear a vest over a t-shirt, Netflix has got you covered. The streaming service has an impressive collection of landmark films from the 90s that should be considered required viewing for any scholar of the decade. This is by no means a definitive list, but it is the list I compiled, which means it is 100% correct and beyond reproach.
