List Rules
Vote up the movies that came out in 1990 that you still enjoy today.

Let's hop in a hypothetical time machine and revisit the movies that came out in 1990. Three full decades have passed, and some of that year's motion pictures have gone on to become all-time certified classics. Films like Ghost, Goodfellas, and Home Alone are still enjoyed by legions of viewers today. And the best part is that they don't feel old, despite hitting their 30th birthdays this coming year. 

Other popular movies turning 30 this year include Pretty Woman, Total Recall, and Back to the Future Part III. There are award-winning dramas, such as Best Picture winner Dances With Wolves, and Misery, for which Kathy Bates won the Best Actress honor, kick-starting her career in the process. There are blockbuster hits like The Hunt For Red October, along with notorious flops like The Bonfire of the Vanities or the Prince-starring Grafitti Bridge. For whatever reason, 1990 also brought quite a few films whose popularity grew immensely over time. House Party, Quick Change, and Days of Thunder all accumulated devoted cult audiences since their initial release. 

All in all, it was quite a memorable cinematic year. Vote up your favorite films that are 30 this year from the titles below, and have fun reflecting back on the ones that mean the most to you.
