The 90's don't seem too often discussed on here, and while I see it as a fairly weak decade of movies, it does have its gems.

Boogie Nights is probably my favorite movie of the decade. Simply a perfect mix of comedy and drama. Magnolia, The Age of Innocence, Hoop Dreams, Miller's Crossing, Office Space, American History X, Ed Wood, Eyes Wide Shut, L.A. Confidential, Little Dieter Needs to Fly, and Goodfellas are also favorite from the decade.

And also Scorsese's two fantastic movie documentaries, My Voyage to Italy and A Personal Journey....

I used to think that the 90s was a great decade of movies but I've come to realise that it was just OK/good. Sure it's better than the 80s but other than that I can't think of a decade that would be outright worse than 90s (some are equal in my book).

My favorites (in some kind of [but not defenitive] order)
Pulp Fiction
Goodfellas
Night on Earth
Reservoir Dogs
Fight Club
The Big Lebowski
Ed Wood
Three Colors: Blue
Forrest Gump
Terminator 2: Judgment Day
and
Twin Peaks (I know it's a TV series but it's just fucking awesome)

It's pretty silly to compile such lists without at least considering the most significant releases of the French, Chinese, Japanese and Iranian cinemas. My redress is as follows:

Most of the Coen Bros'
Most of the Scorseses
the three Tarantinos
all the Kieslowskis
Dick Tracy
Ed Wood
Bottle Rocket
Rushmore
Starship Troopers
Ten to chi to (Kadokawa)
Sonatine (Kitano)
Samurai Fiction
Raise the Red Lantern
To Live (Zhang Yimou)
Ju Dou
Qiu Ju
Shanghai Triad
The Road Home
Not One Less
The Blue Kite
Close-up (Kiarostami)
And Life Goes On
Through the Olive Trees
The Wind Will Carry Us
The White Balloon
Irma Vep
Capitaine Conan (Tavernier)
Les Miserables (Claude Lelouch)
Cyrano de Bergerac (Rappeneau)
Le hussard sur le toit
Indochine
Un coeur en hiver
Nelly & Monsieur Arnaud
La belle noiseuse
Tous les matins du monde

EDIT: Oops, sorry marmota, I forgot Kolya, and it should he on the list.

I recently discovered a good italian hood movies. Not as great as Goodfellas or Pulp Fiction, but better than most crap produced over here: L'odore della notte.
