Best movies of 1990

Sort by: Showing 21 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:

Cyrano used to hold the number 1 spot here until I watched Miller's Crossing twice in 2011. A brilliant film & by far my favorite of 1990.

I remember reading the book & watching this movie in high school and highly enjoying both. The story was far too easy for me to relate to for a long time, so you'll forgive me if I prefer it over Goodfellas. I never wanted to be a gangster, and I was content with not fitting in, thus Cyrano will forever be closer to my heart. (Plus I was an English major :P)

We ran everything. We paid off cops. We paid off lawyers. We paid off judges. Everybody had their hands out. Everything was for the taking. And now it's all over.

They say I'm disturbed. Well, of course I'm disturbed. I mean, we're all disturbed. And if we're not, why not? Doesn't this blend of blindness and blandness want to make you do something crazy? Then why not do something crazy? It makes a helluva lot more sense than blowing your fucking brains out.

This film is an excellent argument for why an artist should never repeat him/herself. Also for avoiding fame, or at least anyone claiming to be your number 1 fan.

Easily my favorite version of Hamlet, thanks to dialogue like this...

It


OK, technically it's a TV movie but in my opinion it counts. Especially since I can watch it as a movie on DVD.
