One of the unusual things about cinema is that even box office hits can fade into obscurity. People can't wait to see them, and they're big deals in the moment, but they eventually reach a point where no one talks about them.
That's definitely the case with many 1990s movies. It was a different time. Having a big star and a catchy premise was all it took to get at least two or three solid weekends at the box office.
The following films from that decade were all major hits. They featured A-list stars of the era like Mel Gibson, Julia Roberts, Kevin Costner, and Sharon Stone. People still remember them, and they still have their fans, of course. However, the flicks just didn't have the ongoing cultural footprint that Jurassic Park, Titanic, Saving Private Ryan, and others from the '90s had.
Additionally, they struggled to attract younger generations of viewers. A few are undeniable turkeys, but the majority were successful, which makes them worth a chance for people who have never seen them. Who knows - maybe they'll become big deals again!
