Category Archives: 1990’s Best Movies

Is it really possible to pick a single best movie of the 1990’s? This is the decade that gave us Goodfellas in 1990, Fight Club in 1999 and countless masterpieces in between. It was a decade when Quentin Tarantino went from video store clerk to the hottest director in town. At least a few of the films we revisit are guaranteed to be close to your heart and ours. So we invite you to find a comfortable spot on the sofa, and join us for a journey through our vast VHS collections.

The Matrix (1999)

The Matrix Quote: “Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and we are the cure.” – Agent Smith

The Matrix changed the world: new camera styles, new visions of violence, new perceptions of reality, and new uses of vinyl clothing. Laurence Fishburne was unforgettable as the enigmatic Morpheus. Carrie-Anne Moss was sizzling as the sleek and deadly Trinity. And Keanu Reeves was the astoundingly empty vessel we needed Neo to be. But the real star, 18 years after The Matrix debuted, is Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith. Let’s review what audiences loved, what still holds up, and what ultimately made this masterpiece just short of perfect.

“10 Things I Hate About You” introduced us to Julia Stiles, Heath Ledger, Joseph Gordon Levitt, and the unsettling reality that ’90s Shakespeare adaptations were a really bad idea. If you remember this movie fondly, you’re not alone. If you still think it’s good after hearing the podcast, you’re a fool. Continue reading 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

Independence Day (1996)

Independence Day Quote: “I picked a hell of a day to quit drinkin’.” – Russel Casse

This “Independence Day,” let’s celebrate the 1996 cinematic dumpster fire that made Will Smith a blockbuster action hero and taught us Jeff Goldblum wasn’t acting in “Jurassic Park.” That’s really him. He can actually hack alien computers. Join us as we fly our mother ship of skepticism through plot holes, wildly offensive performances and Randy Quaid’s most annoying character ever.
