-1). Click on the hashtag below to check out my #10
-6 picks as well as my honourable mentions in case you missed it!
: Magnolia (1999) - This film right here was my favourite movie experience of all time. It's a genius film with brilliant dialogue, phenomenal cast performances, and a complex plot that miraculously all comes together in the end in a powerful way. It was hard not to put it any higher.
: Pulp Fiction (1994) - Tarantino's beloved baby; this film right here changed the game. Feature the best dialogue of the decade, Pulp Fiction is a blast of a film and so incredibly original. It's hard to see its cult following did any time soon, and it's a film that will always be held as a golden standard.
: Fight Club (1999) - "You met me at a very strange time in my life". This film is just a masterpiece from start to end. It never loses its pacing while never losing quality in the process. Brad Pitt and Edward Norton are electric together and bring the quirkiness of the film such life. The twist hits hard the first time you see it, and with that, it sticks forever.
: Goodfellas (1990) - Arguably one of the Top 10 Best Films of All Time, Goodfellas has it all. The performances are stellar, the story is perfect, and Scorsese's execution is a career best amongst a filmography of other masterpieces. This is a film that if you're a budding cinephile I say it's a must watch. It blew me away, and it basically sums up how big the 90s were to film history.
: Forrest Gump (1994) - This film will always have a place in my heart. It's one of my Top personal favourite films, and out of every film I've ever watched, it's most likely the one I've seen the most. What's so beautiful and unique about Forrest Gump is that he doesn't have any character development. No, it's the world that changes around him, and the people in his life that are affected. It's a powerful story with brilliant performances, and dialogue I can quote from beginning to end. This right here is the first movie I think of when I hear "1990s".
