My 10 Favorite 90s Films

Somehow or other, a little google search about some movie trivia lead me down a long and winding path of 90s movie nostalgia. Maybe it is because the 90s were the years when my identity was starting to really form, but these films are cemented into my being. There have been other wonderful films, of course. These, however, these are the ones that give me chills of excitement mixed with a tinge of whimsy & nostalgia whenever I come across them. I thought it might be fun to share, so (in no particular order) here we go!

Singles

Best 90s movies: Singles
If this movie did not shape you in some way, you weren’t a 20 something in the 90s.

Beautiful Girls

Although she is not in this picture, Natalie Portman was the STAR of this film to me

  1. Singles, Thelma & Louise and Fried Green Tomatoes are the BEST! I kind of forget about the 90s because I was so busy and hustling for the cause! But I had a lot of fun, was living the political POC version of Singles and living life hard! Such a lot went on for me at the time. Thanks for the trippy nostalgia trip grrrrrl! Gawd I love that we’re Gen X. ❀
