Thursday thirteen: '90s movies
I love the 90's - that was my teenager decade. I loved watching movies back then, I watched at least one every single week. Of course cinema rates back then were much more pocket-friendly.
And here's my 13:
- Forrest Gump (1994). I thought it was both touching and brilliant in a not-too-deep sort of way.
- How To Make An American Quilt (1995). I loved the visual and verbal poetry.
- Before Sunrise (1995). Rare. Ethan Hawte!
- Schindler's List (1993). I think Schindler's List is on everybody's.
- Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992).
- The Shawshank Redemption (1994). I cut class when i watched this. Wasn't disappointed.
- A Few Good Men (1992). Linear but powerful.
- The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993). Love the premise, the conflict and the Burtonesque eye-candy.
- James and the Giant Peach (1996). Tim Burton + Roald Dahl = Happy kid movie.
- Reality Bites (1994). Has a memorable hit song too.
- Romeo + Juliet (1996). It got me hooked the first scene the moment I realized they used the original Shakespeare text set in 90's USA. Stunning visuals besides.
- Saving Private Ryan (1998). I'm a sucker for WW2 flicks.
- Good Will Hunting (1997). Watched it at least twice. Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's Oscar acceptance speech was just as remarkable.
