The 1990s were a glorious decade, because for many it was the best time of their lives. As it could not be otherwise, the cinema accompanied this stage. We propose a review of the best movies to go back to the 90s.

The cinema we enjoy today would not be the same if the decade of the 90s had not left its indelible mark in terms of productions, scripts, artists and mythical scenes. We invite you to watch them again and enjoy the classics of cinema. After all, only a few decades have passed since their premieres and they are still relevant.

Remembering and re-watching some of the film productions of that time fills us with happiness and nostalgia. Let’s not waste any more time.

The Silence of the Lambs

We start this list with a classic film that has made our skin crawl and has scenes that will never be erased. Released in 1991 and starring Jodie Foster and the great Anthony Hopkins, Oscar winner for his role as Hannibal Lecter. The skin still crawls with this cannibal whose gaze is disturbing.

Dr. Lecter is a murderer and psychoanalyst who finds himself in a maximum security prison. The young detective Starling must find a serial killer who, after killing teenage women, rips off their skin with chilling thoroughness.

Pulp fiction

The fantastic and eccentric Quentin Tarantino directed this film that earned him the title of one of the best film directors. Winner of the Palme d’Or award and starring John Travolta and Uma Thurman, it has a plot in which two hitmen must take care of their boss’s sensual wife during his absence. Anything can happen in a Tarantino movie…

Seven

Director David Fincher keeps us in suspense until the second ending of this film that revolutionized serial killer scripts. The leading duo is played by Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman.

Morgan plays a detective on the verge of retirement who must teach the ropes to a young colleague who is just starting out. Both go in search of a serial killer whose crimes represent the 7 deadly sins, but with a cruelty that escapes the mind of any mortal. The ending is electrifying… do you remember it?

The Truman Show

Whoever has seen this movie, has hardly not experienced the paranoia of being watched all the time. The actor of the moment was, without a doubt, Jim Carrey. This time he makes us laugh and thrill us at the same time with his performance.

Truman suspects that he is being watched, he feels that since he was born something is not right… and he is not wrong. His life is a soap opera, since the supposed place where he lives is nothing more than a fictitious city set up in a television studio.

Home Alone

Macaulay Culkin plays Kevin McCallister, a boy who is unwittingly left home alone after his large family boards a plane in the middle of Christmas Eve. Until his mother discovers that she had forgotten about him and they are able to return, the boy must manage to protect his home from two evildoers who want to do their own thing.

Terminator 2: The Last Judgment

The second installment of this saga is one of the best science fiction movies that marked the 90s with fire. Directed by James Cameron and starring actors such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton, it caused a stir back in 1991, when it filled the big screens all over the world.

A human-looking robot from the future must protect Sarah Connor and her son because these two people are key to saving the world.

Jurassic Park

Who says dinosaurs can’t populate the earth again? At least, this is a reality in Steven Spielberg’s film, in which the impossible becomes reality with disturbing ease.

A group of scientists manage to revive different species of dinosaurs and create a theme park that is destined for success, except for one small detail: human greed.

Titanic

One of the highest grossing films in the history of cinema in which James Cameron directs a resounding success. The story stems from the real sinking of the Titanic that occurred in 1912. From there comes a love story as unforgettable as it is wonderful.

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio bring passion and romance to this film and make us understand that love knows no social class, but the chemistry of two skins that attract each other like magnets.

The Sixth Sense

One of the best films that were on the big screen in the 90s. The twist in the script surprises us and leaves us perplexed.

Bruce Willis gives life to a psychologist who treats children with mental problems. His life will change forever when he meets Cole (Haley Joel Osment), 8 years old. What happens to this child? “I see dead people” he answers with horror in his eyes. Do you remember the ending?

Matrix

We close our list with this work of science fiction that shook the foundations of what we know as reality and questioned even our very existence in this world. If there is such a world.

Pioneering special effects fight scenes that are still seen on the big screen to this day are part of this revolutionary film. Neo (Keanu Reeves) works in computers and his life is transformed when he reads a message on his computer screen.

Terms like virtual reality and machine-dominated world dominate and guide the plot. They are those gems of cinema that we always want to see again.
