In the 90s, the belief was sustained that expensive, high-budget films with expensive special effects meant quality. However, the independently-distributed film movement was also proving that it could compete (both commercially and critically) with Hollywood's costly output. This decade also marked the advent of the home viewing of movies, in part made possible by the digital revolution that allowed movies to be greatly modified even after shooting.
