List RulesNot necessarily the best, your favorite, or the most rewatchable movies, but rather films that - for whatever reason, perhaps something poignant, perhaps something disturbing - have stuck in your brain long after seeing them.

The last decade of the 20th century was a prime time for film. The release of Pulp Fiction introduced spectators to hyper-stylized independent movies, that could accessibly cross over to the mainstream, and delight audiences, introducing them to a new kind of cinema. Additionally, the decade saw some of the biggest movies stars in the world, like Tom Cruise and Julia Roberts, reach heights of movie stardom reserved only for Hollywood royalty. These are the '90s movies that stuck with you the most.

The decade was littered with memorable '90s movies. One interesting trend is the number of films that feature jaw dropping twist endings. The Sixth Sense, Seven, Fight Club, The Crying Game, and The Usual Suspects all made the list.

The 1990s, of course, had its iconic love stories as well. Audiences swooned with Vivian (Julia Roberts) as she fell in love with Edward (Richard Gere) in Pretty Woman. Jerry Maguire (Tom Cruise) was able to push greed aside and find the partner who completed him. And despite the tragedy in Ghost, we always had “ditto.”

Speaking of 1990s tragic films, Titanic, the epic drama from James Cameron, may have made us weep, but we’ll never forget the brief and brilliant love story of Rose and Jack. The 1990s brought us the Dude, his Dudeness, or Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing. And, Martin Scorsese opened the door to what it was actually like to be one of the crew, a goodfella a gangster, and made it okay to root for the bad guys.
