In honor of my sister’s birthday I made the executive decision to make another list. Yaaaaaaaay. Such a joyous occasion. This time you’ll be seeing the best films to come out of 1990. The start of a new decade filled with trends and film – actually, the quality of film that came from 1990 is shocking – but most of all, it saw the birth of a talented individual. And one day soon she will mirror the talent and content of these films with her own. Happy birthday Cassandra.

And now, in no particular order, I give you 1990’s finest.
