    Good Will Hunting should have been at least honorable mention. The 3rd best of the decade in my opinion

    I love Toy Story, it is my favorite Pixar movie. But the fact that it makes the list and Saving Private Ryan doesn't is laughable.

    I think Fight club gets 10th place, and the usual suspects get the 3hrd place.

    Titanic should definitely be on this list, and Schindler’s List should be way higher. It is one of the best films ever made!

    Didn't even mention
    Saving private Ryan which is better than fight club
    Casino which is better than some fucking toy movie
    Scream and Halloween h20 should be at least on the list to be honest I found them better than silence of the lambs
    Leon the professional and many others

    I love Tarantino. But from now on, every time I see a movie of his, I'm going to think about the idiot of Harvey Weinstein.

    I dont bother posting a top 10 so i will do top 3. Number 3. Forrest Gump. Number 2. The Green Mile. Number 1 by a huge landslide. The Shawshank Redemption. There is a reason it is number 1 on best movie of all times on IMDB and all other voting site i have seen. Pulp Fiction good movie but not even close to the same league as Shawshank. People may hate me but this is my opinion i do not speak for anyone but myself.

    You people are so ridiculous, Pulp fiction above Goodfellas, the best organized crime movie behind pulp fiction, you got to be kidding me and the best romantic movie of 90s, before sunrise not even in honorable mentions, you people are so blindfolded by the whole commercial movies that you can't appreciate even good movies, No goundhog day or no good will hunting, you people are idiots and have no idea of good movies.

    To be completely honest, I strongly believe should have been in this list not in the honorable mentions, after all, it is a masterpiece in its own right and a great deal better than a lot of films you have put in thi slist

    Here are my thoughts (Oh boy the 90’s were the gem of awesomeness):

    10. One of my favorites.
    09. One of my favorites.
    08. I’ll be honest, I never grew on Fight Club. I’m sorry, but it’s very overrated. How about Se7en? I love Se7en than Fight Club. Why can’t they include that?
    07. I love Toy Story. The first computer generated film that blew people’s mind in the next generation until now.
    06. It was great and emotional film. It was very brutal for this true event.
    05. One of my favorites.
    04. One of my favorites and that’s my action film of all time!
    03. One of my favorites and I fuckin love Goodfellas.
    02. It was good. Not nearly my favorite, but good.

    – Good Movie.
    – One of my favorites.
    – I love it.
    – I like it. Don’t be mad, but I think it’s good.

    01. Now that’s my number classic film of all time and that’s one of my favorite ones. I would taste that Big Juicy Kahauna Burger! And then I struck down with my greatest vengeance of all!!!
