Gunny Highway: People don't like Truman Show? I love that movie.

A movie with a similar theme, I personally think Being John Malkovich was a much better movie than The Truman Show.

buntz: I would take "Heat" off. Far as I recall, it sort of came and went. It was supposed to be this big deal with Pacino and DeNiro together, but it just wasn't.

Yeah, it's gotten more popular since, but when it was released? Meh.

I'd argue that that's a better measure of a movie's quality, actually. Lots of movies make a big splash on release, then fade from the public consciousness. The public takes a while to discover a lot of the classics. Look at Office Space or Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Anyway, my personal favorite of the 90s isn't on the list, and behaved pretty much the opposite of what I just described. The Fisher King opened really strong, but is now one of those movies where if you bring it up, people say "Oh yeah! Forgot about that one! That was good!" I still find very few flaws in it, which is a rare thing for a Gilliam film. And it's the movie that cemented my philosophy that I will watch anything Jeff Bridges is in.

I'm surprised. 3 pages, and no-one's mentioned Good Will Hunting

bump Fight Club or Heat for it.

Gunny Highway: Movies I can't turn off once I start watching:

A Few Good Men
The Rock
The Mask of Zorro

Mask of Zorro is damn near perfect for an adventure. CZJ is unquenchably hot, Antonio Banderas played a great rise to hero, and Hopkins was a great old master. Great stunts and sword fighting. Granted, it nearly had a Luthor villain plot.

Seven was a horrible movie. I'd rather see Clueless on the list than Seven.

Leader O'Cola: replace
Groundhog Day, Sixth Sense, Boyz in the Hood, Jurassic Park, Speed, Trainspotting, Truman Show, Heat with some of those.

You go to hell. Straight there... No stopping at your friends, no getting some food... You go straight to hell!

shifty lookin bleeder: titwrench: Not a terrible list but you farkers came up with some good omissions. Could have done without Speed and The Truman Show.

And Terminator 2.

These are enjoyable ways to spend a couple of hours, but there were much better movies out there.

No. Shut up. T2 was the pinnacle of the scifi action movie. And you actually FELT something. Jesus, a scifi action movie where you actually feel emotion. That's just a tremendous feat.

The Incredible Sexual Egg: Hell, Se7en is probably one of the best movies ever made

Zodiac was better.

Mugato: It was way too over-stylized.

This is true. What impressed me most about Natural Born Killers was that it was the first movie where I truly realized that Woody Harrelson could play something -- well -- other than a dopey bartender or sidekick.

That's actually not a bad list. I think I agree that Shakespeare in Love belongs on it; I'd probably bump Thin Red Line to make space.

Saving Private Ryan was a movie I loved right up until it completely abandoned its core question at the end and took a cowardly, easy way out of the very difficult question it originally asked. So it's dead to me...I prefer to think it never happened and they just went straight to Band of Brothers, instead.
