This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
The OFCS Top 100 Overlooked Films of the 1990s was announced in 2004.
July 27, 2004: It was the decade of Tarantino and Titanic. From Schindler's List to The Blair Witch Project, movies and the hype that went with them seemed bigger than ever.
However, too many great films somehow got lost in the shuffle. While some were recalled by Oscar voters and many managed to squeak out a modest box office return, these films nonetheless failed to click in the memory banks of both the critics and with audiences.
The writers of the Online Film Critics Society recalls the half- and completely-forgotten treasures of the past decade cinematic canon with its list of the Top 100 Overlooked Films of the 1990s. Join us for a trip back into the not-so-distant past and see if you recall the titles celebrated here by the OFCS writers.
This is a list of the ten most voted movies on IMDb from each year in the 1990's. It gives another perspective than the list with the highest ratings. You could call it more of a popularity contest than a quality contest.
At the end of the 1990s, Cinematheque Ontario (the former name of TIFF) asked 59 film curators, archivists, and programmers from around the world to vote for the best films of the 1990s.
TIFF also made a list of the [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/tiffs+best+of+the+decade+an+alternative+view+2000s/mjf314/]best films of the 2000s[/url].
Few talk about the ’90s as a filmmaking renaissance on par with the late ’60s and early ’70s, but for many of the film critics at The A.V. Club, it was the decade when we were coming of age as cinephiles and writers, and we remember it with considerable affection. Those ’70s warhorses like Martin Scorsese and Robert Altman posted some of the strongest work of their careers, and an exciting new generation of filmmakers—Quentin Tarantino, Joel and Ethan Coen, Wong Kar-Wai, Olivier Assayas, David Fincher, and Wes Anderson among them—were staking out territory of their own. Presented over three days—with two 20-film lists, then a separate one for the top 10—our Top 50 survey was conducted in an effort to reflect group consensus and individual passion, with the disclaimer that all such lists have a degree of arbitrariness that can’t be avoided. (On Thursday, we’ll run a supplemental list of orphans, also-rans, and personal favorites that will undoubtedly be quirkier.) One more note before digging in: Filmmakers who had a particularly good decade were often divided against themselves in the voting. Which Coen brothers movie is the strongest? Which color from Krzysztof Kieslowski’s Three Colors trilogy shone the brightest? Peel slowly and see…
In the following weeks the major Norwegian internet film site Montages.no will present their top 100 films from the 1990s, 10 films at a time, starting at the bottom.
Currently they have only presented the bottom half, list rank #100–51, (i.e. with Scream (1996) as #100). Toy Story 1 & 2 (1995, 1999) and Home Alone 1 & 2 (1990, 1992) were each sharing a single list spot.
I'll be continuously updating this list as it fills up at Montages.no.
