Top Films of the Decade - The 1990s - Voting Thread

Hey all, welcome to the Films of the Decade voting thread. You'll submit your Top 15 picks of what in your opinion were the best movies of said decade, instead of strictly favorites (personally, I do a composite of favorites and best, so a good share of films get listed). You're more than welcome to revise your list as many times as you want as long as you tell me which one you want me to count; you can also put more than 15 movies on your list, I'll only count the Top 15. The films will be assigned a point value according to their placement on the list (15 points for #1, 14 points for #2, etc...). Films have to be on at least 2 lists to be considered for the final list.

The main purpose of this thread is to provoke discussion about these films and each others' tastes... and most importantly for fun. The more lists submitted, the better the overall list becomes, so please submit when you can.

Please submit your list in the format provided below, it makes compiling and adding up votes 100x easier, trust me. No awkward spaces or reverse order lists, please. I cannot stress this enough:

1. Pulp Fiction
2. Rushmore
3. American Beauty
4. Barton Fink
5. Boogie Nights
6. Schindler’s List
8. The Shawshank Redemption
8. The Big Lebowski
9. Ed Wood
10. Terminator 2: Judgment Day
11. Reservoir Dogs
12. Fight Club
13. The Matrix
14. Waiting for Guffman
15. The Silence of the Lambs

The deadline for votes will be Saturday, October 20th at 11:59 PM EST, hope you all submit.

The 2000s list will be shown in the final thread.

I fucking love the 90's.

But damn, I'm having a ridiculously hard time putting together a list I'm satisfied with.

Yeah, it was a lot harder for me this time around, too. You can put together a 25-30 deep list if you want, but the first 15 will be counted.

Pulp Fiction is heavily overrated. Unlike Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction rehashes old movies without really adding something completely new. Don't get me wrong, it's a great movie, but it's nowhere near the greatest movie of the 90's.
9/10.

And Shawshank is, in my humble opinion, a travesty of a film. Between it and Forrest Gump, I'd prefer Forrest Gump any day. And that's saying something. It's just not special in any way, it shows no will to experiment or challenge the medium, and it's insanely predictable.
4/10.

I hope my 2000's list makes it

Pulp's one of my favorite films of all-time, mainly because it has the best dialogue of any film I've seen. I could quote that shit all day. I'm the fuckin' foot master.

With Shawshank, it may not be the most unconventional film by any means, but it achieves what it sets out to do and does it well. Plus, any movie that makes me like Tim Robbins has to get some credit.

The 2000s voting is already done, sorry.

Spoken like a true prodigy.

Ah, but I agree, it's one of my favourites as well, but we're voting based on originality and execution, right?

I fear there will not be enough Asian love in the 2000's poll

Personally, I'm voting based on quality and how much I like it, which really helps comedies and action flicks enter the equation.

There is some Asian love in the 2000s poll, you'd be surprised.
