If you’re looking for some nostalgia or for that feeling of comfort that comes with watching old films, here are 10 ’90s films that you need to revisit with your family.
One of Quentin Tarantino’s best known works and with an all-star cast including John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson, and Bruce Willis, it is no wonder this film has a cult following. Known to younger generations only by its cover photo, but to older generations as a popular film, this is perfect to introduce to the teenagers.
‘The Sixth Sense’
If you’re looking for a thriller film that has an ending none of us saw coming, ‘The Sixth Sense’ will keep you on your toes and in complete bafflement. With a child that can see dead people and Bruce Willis playing the lead, there is little not to be enjoyed.
Is there anything more satisfying than 90’s-style sci-fi films? Clad tight in latex and gothic aesthetic, this iconic Keanu Reeves dystopian film is perfect for those who are into complex films and dark future contemplations.
‘Independence Day’ was a start in Hollywood recognising that if aliens were to visit Earth, chances are they wouldn’t only land in America. This is an iconic alien invasion film that led to an equally enjoyable sequel in 2016.
Everyone can remember a quote from this movie, whether it’s “Run, Forrest! Run!”, or “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get”. This film is much-loved due to its heart-warming nature and social commentary.
‘The Wedding Singer’
One of Adam Sandler’s earlier ‘RomComs’, featuring the same leading couple as the newer ‘Blended’, ‘The Wedding Singer’ is full of laughs and a kick-ass soundtrack. And with a few musical numbers sung by Adam Sandler himself, who can resist?
‘She’s All That’
This is one of the most iconic ‘RomComs’ and has been the source of many parodies and inspiration in modern films. With a story from before it became a cliché where a popular boy is dared to go out with an unpopular girl, she has a glow up, and they fall in love (after the dare is brought to light of course).
‘The Mighty Ducks’
‘The Mighty Ducks’ is a heart-felt young sports movies surrounding a hockey team filled with quirky personalities and a coach that (as rough as he is with them) can’t help but love them like a family. This film is highly enjoyable for the whole family.
‘Clueless’ is a cult classic that still remains highly popular alongside ‘Mean Girls’. With a strong, independent female lead that takes control of the world around her (i.e. high school) and battles with conflicting friend relationships and boys, this is an easy watch that’s fun for the whole family.
A perfect concoction of nostalgia for parents and kids alike, and a rude awakening into how much Disney animation has improved. The first ‘Toy Story’ is an excellent film to watch with the kids, to see how the friendships started and when Andy was still written on the soles of their feet.
