Oh, the 90’s — the decade that brought us indie-cinema breakouts, fight clubs, charismatic serial killers, Rushmore Academy overachievers, and those iconic blockbusters. It was a surprisingly fertile time for filmmakers and film lovers alike. From Tarantino to Titanic, here is a list of the 25 most iconic films of the 90’s:
25. Clueless (1995)
Think Shakespeare via Rodeo Drive. Amy Hecklering’s delightful film follows the romantic drama of Cher (played by Alicia Silverstone). Cher and her best friend Dionne (Stacey Dash) live in Beverly Hills and go to one of those high schools where the students look like they’ve all posed for the cover of Vogue. Clueless — which includes an adorable Paul Rudd as a slight problematic love interest — is lively, silly, and probably one of the most quotable films of all time. The movie is aimed at teenagers. However like all good comedies, it will appeal to anyone who has a sense of humor and an ear for the ironic.

24. Pulp Fiction (1994)
Everything from Donnie Darko to Juno has borrowed from Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction. His follow-up to Reservoir Dogs had to deliver on a ton of expectations. With that said, the writer-director went beyond the call of duty. The film tells the story of two mob hit men, a gangster, his wife, and a pair of dimwitted robbers whose four stories intertwine in one of the greatest crime-dramas ever made. Unimaginably violent and graphic, with a style so innovative, Tarantino went on to win the well deserved Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. The final scene — where hitman Jules (Samuel L. Jackson) explains his philosophy on life — will continue to resonate with audiences for decades to come.
