8 Action Movies Of the ’90s To Watch

The 90s will always be remembered as an exciting decade for movies. The decade brought you bullet-time blockbusters and indie-cinema breakouts, with most films, celebrated to date. Looking back at these movies, you can see how early the foundation of today’s movies was laid. Here are the 10 best movies that made the 90s a surprisingly exciting time for film lovers and filmmakers.

Goodfellas (1990)

Based on a bestselling novel (Wiseguy) by Nicolas Pileggi, Goodfellas is among the best mob movies of all time. The movie is about the rise and fall of Henry Hill as a New York mobster in the 60s and 70s. However, the movie doesn’t glorify the violent acts mostly associated with this type of occupation. 

Home Alone (1990)

While most adults would rather be home alone with the Golden Nugget Welcome offer that offers the most enjoyable casino games, a kid won’t feel the same, especially on Christmas eve. This film tells the story of Kelvin, a mischievous 8-year-old boy who feels highly ignored by his large family. The movie is an action-comedy with the 8-year-old star inflicting severe injuries on two burglars who try to break into their home.

The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

The silence of the Lambs is among the few modern films with a spectacular entrance. The movie tells the story of Clarice Starling, an over-achieving FBI trainee asked to help with a serial murder case. However, the film has been criticized for being too gruesome for family viewing, though an excellent treat for horror lovers.

Jurassic Park (1993)

This 1993 adventure film has received lots of positive reviews from critics due to its special effects and realistic dinosaurs. There’s little gore or actual blood, with lots of suspense and a well-developed story featuring both adults and children. 

Forest Gump (1994)

Although Forest Gump has an Iq level of 75, he sees the world in a more precise way than most people. Through his child-like eyes, you get to see a lot of stuff more easily, with a moral tale that’s as straight as an arrow. The movie stars Tom Hanks, who plays the role of the “wise fool” to deliver yet another Oscar-level performance.

Titanic (1997)

Titanic is among the highest-grossing films of all time. In certain movie-lover circles, the enthralling saga is considered a guilty pleasure that has continued to entertain people for over two decades since it’s release. 

Pulp Fiction (1994)

Pulp Fiction boasts of groundbreaking cinematography, direction, soundtrack, direction, and extraordinary performances. The movie is a delirious mix of violence, drugs, strange sex, leather leaks, blood, guts, and other neo-noir thrills. 

The Matrix (1999)

With the film recycling the premises of “Strange Day” and “Dark City,” it turns up the volume and heat to feature gravity-defying choreography and mind-blowing content. The movie is heavy on special effects, character, and dialogue, making it an awesome choice for sci-fi enthusiasts.
