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.

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…
Wazzup, home skillet! You must’ve left your pager in your other pair of Zubaz, ‘cuz the 1990s are trying to get in touch: The decade’s back, and it’s brought 140 friends!
Rotten Tomatoes, the Fresh prince of review aggregators, presents our list of the 140 Essential ’90s Movies, ranging from Certified Fresh to Rotten, all reppin’ 10 years of cinema that upended the biz! Our selections cross the era’s cultural checkpoints, including the American independent golden era (Pulp Fiction, Good Will Hunting), animation renaissance (The Lion King, the Toy Story movies), slasher revival (Scream), and the full maturation of auteurs like Scorsese and Spielberg under the studio system…just as the same studios pumped out big, star-driven crass comedies (Happy Gilmore, There’s Something About Mary) and effects-driven blockbusters (Titanic, Independence Day).
So slap on that bracelet and resurrect your Tamagotchi bestie, because these aren’t just the best ’90s movies, dude — they’re totally Essential! And if you’re looking for more blasts from the past, check out our list of 140 Essential 80s Movies! Schwing!
The 1990s were a particularly vital time for American cinema. Established filmmakers like Steven Spielberg, the Coen Brothers, and James Cameron made some of the most memorable films of their careers, and new auteurs like Wes Anderson, P.T. Anderson, and Quentin Tarantino exploded onto the scene and redefined the way we view film. Dramatic changes in technology allowed an entire new dimension in special effects, and the end of the cold war challenged us to reflect on the Twentieth Century with a less self-congratulatory tone in our movies.
In order to determine what made up the very best movies of the 1990s, we tasked a dozen or so of our writers with establishing a universe of fifty films, and then voting on those films to ferret out the top twenty. The votes were weighted, with substantially more points awarded to high rankings than lower rankings, ensuring that even outliers that a few of us considered brilliant had a chance to make their way onto the list. Some surprises made our list (What About Bob, Terminator 2) while some huge films didn’t make the cut (Titanic, Schindler’s List).
