Favorite '90s Moviesby adam_sandler_rox22 | created - 31 Mar 2013 | updated - 03 Mar 2014 | Public
These are my personal favorite movies released in the '90s. A good chunk of '90s releases that I own I haven't watched yet so as I watch them (and rewatch the ones I haven't seen in over a decade), I will add them to the list if I find I cannot live without it in my library.
They're all arranged alphabetically, as it would probably take me a good 2 or 3 years just to put this in order of my favorites.
And if anyone is wondering my age to get some perspective on this list, I was born in 1991.
