Forrest and Neo: A Match Made in Heaven
It’s that time again folks. No I don’t mean it’s time for your coffee enema, on the contrary, it’s time for you to shove your opinion right up everyone else’s butt. Why do I say that? Because we are talking about the 90’s. If I would take a guess on this board, then in this backwards time travel of decades, the 90’s and 80’s are going to be the most contested decades. Mostly, it’s because that was the time we all grew up. For many of us, the 90’s was the decade of adolescence. We hold those year very close to our hearts. So it will be emotional. Tempers will flare. People will have their feelings hurt. Internet badassery will commence.
While we do remember the good stuff, it was the great stuff that made the 1990’s special. Common belief holds the 90’s up there with the 50’s and 70’s in terms of movie quality. And 1994 and 1999 are some of the single best years of film of all-time. How great are the 90’s? A decade following the pressure of the post-decadence of the 80’s. The information age revving up. The unwieldy throws of the grunge movement. Slacker culture reigned supreme. Well, again, how do we define it? What did it mean? And more importantly...
And I ask the question again: How will the decade be remembered? Well, first let's find 100 Movies We Agree Don't Suck, and we'll take it from there.
Without delay, let's get down to the rules, as normal:
Ballots will be posted in this thread as a response. Please label your films 1-20, with 1 being the highest, 2 next and so forth (doesn't matter how you list them, forwards or backwards, but make sure 1 is your top film). I will let the thread sink in for a week or so, then I will lock in answers with an announcement (as in, "NO FURTHER CHANGES FROM NOW ON) I will bump this thread daily until the first list is posted, I'm sure it will take a couple of days to start getting lists in.* ONLY FILMS RELEASED BETWEEN JANUARY 1, 1990 and DECEMEBER 31, 1999 will be considered. ALL OTHER FILMS ARE UNQUALIFIED. Check the dates of the films you include I am also taking the list of volunteers for write-ups. You know the drill. If you love film and want to unleash your Shakespearean eloquence upon the masses, sign up. Writers:
Have at it folks.
NOTE: DO NOT DOUBLE POST YOUR LIST, JUST EDIT YOUR ORIGINAL POST IF YOU NEED TO.
