The A.V. Club, the media and pop culture branch of The Onion, has assembled a master list of the fifty best films from the 1990s.
Of the selections, I’ve seen (suprisingly, to me) thirty-nine, mostly asa library-card enabled kid enabled teenager and college student, trying to find things that looked interesting. Many I remember just picking based on the cover, or synopsis, and only later realized I was watching some auteur’s masterpiece.
Man, I miss being able to discover things like that. Internet, I love you, but the experience of thumbing through physical media can’t be replaced. I hope young adults still do that.
What do you think of the collection? Are you surprised certain ones were included? What’s missing? Post your thoughts in the comments below.
