Must watch 90s Movies

Ever bored and in need of a nostalgic watch? Here is a list of must-watch 90s movies to enjoy with family and friends!


Independence Day is one of the most classic and popular 90s action movies. The story begins when the world turns into a frantic state due to an alien spacecraft landing in large populated cities leaving every citizen panicked. Across the globe people join the fight to survive. Characters like pilots, scientists, the president, and regular citizens’ goals all align due to the enormity of the situation. These characters who are vastly different from one another team up to plan against the aliens. This movie involves intense action scenes, while also incorporating moments of comedy. This movie depicts the good nature of human survival through sacrifice and other aspects. It is a must-watch for anyone looking for a fun yet nostalgic time. 


The plot of The Truman Show follows the main character, Truman Burbank, whose entire life is in a reality television show in a town called Seahaven. Throughout the film, Truman slowly realizes the fakeness of the world he has been living in and slowly uncovers the secrets surrounding it. The entire film surrounds themes of truth, freedom, and self-discovery. This film highlights how deceiving media can be and how much of an impact it has on the world.


Taking a turn into the more lighthearted 90s movies, 10 Things I Hate About You is a modern retelling of The Taming of the Shrew by Shakespeare. The film follows the sisters, Kat and Bianca Stratford. While Kat is fierce and independent, Bianca is bubbly and charming. When a character named Cameron falls in love with Bianca, he devises a plan to get someone to date Kat due to their father’s rule about Bianca dating when Kat does. Patrick Verona agrees to date Kat but eventually develops a bond, while Kat is unaware of the original plan. 


An additional example of a lighthearted teen 90s movie is Clueless. Clueless is a comedy film following Cher Horowitz in Beverly Hills. Cher is a popular and rich high school girl who attempts to matchmake her new friend Tai Frasier, but it accidentally leads to misunderstanding and comedic adventures. Cher encounters troubles while dealing with her own romantic life and slowly realizes she has feelings for her ex-stepbrother with whom she shares a close bond with. This comedic film subtly introduces topics of discovery and relationships for teens in a fun manner.   


While The X-Files is a TV series and not a film, it deserves an honorable mention due to how it is popular and one of the most interesting 90s throwbacks. The story follows Dana Scully and Fox Mulder who are FBI agents working on cases under a special department the government has classified under the supernatural. This thriller and mystery show captures suspense interestingly and articulately capturing the viewer’s attention. The banter between Scully and Mulder plays into the comedic aspect while also showing both sides of an argument with Scully always being on the side of science and Mulder standing on the side of the supernatural.
