A list of the best movies of 1992, from children's movies like Aladdin to action movies like Under Siege. The '90s were a decade where Hollywood thrived with new stars and big blockbusters and the most that came out in 1992 were no exception. Some of the best movies of this year are some of the best teen, coming of age, adventure, comedies, and dramas in history. The films on here are very memorable and had audiences on the edges of their seats, and still pack a punch so many years aft they were first released. You shouldn't be too surprised by the movies listed on here.

As stated before, some of the best comedy movies of the decade were released in 1992. Who could forget Wayne's World with Mike Myers and Dana Carvey, Sister Act with Whoopi Goldberg, and of course, A League Of Their Own starring Tom Hanks and Rosie O'Donnell. And let's not forget about the hilarious White Men Can't Jump with Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson.

The best movies made in 1992 featured some of the biggest stars in the movie business. Whether it was the aforementioned stars continuing their success or the breakout performances featured in Reservoir Dogs, or established stars like Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, and Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns and Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman.

Some of the best movies of all time were released in 1992. This is the ultimate list of the best and most popular movies of 1992, which shouldn't feature the best movies of 1991. Vote and re-rank this list according to how you think the best movies of that year should be reflected.
