iCM Forum's Favourite Movies of the 1990s
Posted Image

The 1990s were the last decade of the previous millennium. Some people thought it was the end of history. But of course history didn't end. Neither did film history. People continued making movies. In this poll we are going to decide which are our top 250 favorite movies made in this decade.

To be clear the 1990s are from 1990 to 1999 incl.!

The deadline is October 28th 2016


  • Nominees must be from 1990 - 1999 according to IMDb. Meaning the year in brackets next to the title, not the release-date in your country.*
  • Shorts, mini-series and TV-episodes from anthology series where the episodes are unrelated, are allowed. Tv-series aren't allowed.*
    *Imdb will be leading in this, but if you have good arguments exceptions to the rule can be made in consultation

  • IMDb-lists or iCM-lists are accepted. (If you can't make one of those, ask another user to help you out.)
  • Lists can be any length.
  • Each nominee can only be named once (of course)
  • Lists can be ranked, unranked or partically ranked in the form of "top X films are ranked and everything after that point is unranked"(When not specified I will consider a list as ranked.


Since all of our decade list are top 250s, this one is going to be as well. Half-life will be set as well for this reason.
Scoring for ranked lists: Half-life = 50
Scoring for unranked lists: Every film on your list receives the same number of points (the average of what they would have received if your list was ranked).


Some help:
1990s movies you rated on imdb
1990s movies on a imdb list (replace XXXX with the list id)

While watching movies for this or after the results are in, you can participate in the The Unofficial 1990s Challenge

Participants (50)

Please check if your list is stated and linked correctly. So there won't be any hassle with having to recalculate the results after we have started.

I'm not sure if I'll rank it anyway, but is the Czech film "Ucho" eligible? Kind of a gray area.

This poll will be a LOT easier for me than the <400 poll. Only started working on it tonight, and I already slashed my list of contenders down to 217.

So far, my chief hurdle is "Jeez, I've seen a lot of Quay brothers and Richard Kern shorts that bleed together in memory."

Wish I could get through "Satantango" before the deadline, but that doesn't seem likely.

Great timing! I went through all Tsai films from the 90s this year, and 3/4 will probably make my list. Will try to catch up on more Asian cinema from the 90s before I vote. Missing a lot of big ones.

I was just looking at my own list and I wondered if Ucho should be allowed.
From the trivia on IMDb
 
Although made in 1970, this didn't see major release until 1989.

well, neither 70 or 89 are in the 90s.

If it had a minor release in 70, it's clearly from that year. Just like The Lobster today that ran on film festivals for a year before it got a major release

Joachimt pulled off a Scorsese



My favourite film of the 90s, The Horse Thief, was actually made in the 80s.

Indeed. But the year on IMDb and iCM says 1990, so it popped up when I filtered my favorites on that decade.

There also is larks on a string. Made in 1969 but was banned until 1990.

Blue Sky was finished in 1991. But Orion went bancrupt. I saw release in 1994 instead, and actually won academy awards that year.

But there are many movies that simply doesn't have a premiere date:
Corman's The Fantastic Four, was never supposed to get a release. Leaked now, on imdb we have production year.
To mistenklige personer by Ibsen. Shelved because of too many similarities with a current crime case. Released in 2007 (but not theatrically). Imdb still have production year.

So imdb do both. Too me it makes sense to reflect the current age of filmmaking. TMP is simply not a 2007 film but could be concidered among the better of the 50s in Norway. In the same way Larks on a String is a 1969 movie. It clearly had an important message in 69. So important that they had to ban it.

In 1990 it was more of a curiosity, a historical document.

And for an actors or a directors filmography a production year a clearly a better way to show how their career progresses

I just removed Ucho from my list. It doesn't belong here indeed.

Lonewolf, that means my list should now say "(unranked57)" instead of "(unranked58)".
