Ah, the '90s. Who could forget such a very colorful decade? Generation X people won't, that's for sure! While for a lot of Boomers, the '90s was the decade they realized they actually WERE grownups, it was a great time at the movies!
This is a decade full of wonder, of mystery, and also full of discovery at the same time. Those who grew up in the '90s were really on the cusp of many kinds of changes in the world. Be it sociological, psychological, technological or political, it all happened during that rather eclectic time!
Those changes, of course, are always reflected in the arts, as carried over by the artists who created them. It's no different when it comes to the movies. The quality of '90s filmmakers and '90s actors are indeed different from their counterparts from other decades. Some of them defined this decade very well, while some were stellar then and disappeared soon after.
But whatever happened to such stars and filmmakers, it's a good thing that we still have their movies as eternal souvenirs of their genius at work. So, do you think you can easily guess the titles of these movies just by figuring out the picture clues we give you here? Come one, give it a try! Roll cam!
