What are your top 5 favorite movies of the 90's?

In case you haven't figured it out yet, I'm a movie buff of sorts, and I see every movie I can. So I'm just curious, what are your five favorite movies of the 90s?

Mine:

1. Heat - directed by Michael Mann, starring Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Val Kilmer, Tom Sizemore and Ashley Judd. The best Cops vs. Robbers movie ever, with a deep and complicated plot, and very well developed characters. An intelligent thriller. The scene involving Pacino (the Cop) and De Niro (the Robber) having coffee in a diner, discussing their chosen proffessions, is legendary.

2. American Beauty - Directed by Sam Mendes, starring Kevin Spacey, Annette Bening, and Chris Cooper. Pretty much the funniest not-really-a-comedy I have ever seen. Kevin Spacey plays a husband, father and loser, who decides to start saying and doing what he feels like (including buying a Firebird, smoking pot, and threatening his boss). This performance alone makes the movie.

3. Saving Private Ryan - Directed by Steven Spielberg, starring Tom Hanks, Tom Sizemore, and Matt Damon. The greatest war movie ever made, simply because it avoided the bloated patriotism, censorship, and feel-goodness of previous war movies. A great story about a controversial plot to save the life of one man, at the risk of many.

4. Pulp Fiction - Ok....duh.

5. Goodfellas - Directed by Martin Scorcese (the Master Himself), starring Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, and Joe Pesci. I'm a big fan of Mafia movies, and this one (after the Godfather) takes the cake. An excellent story about the perks and perils of being a gangster, right from the beginning. It put Ray Liotta into the limelight, and was one of De Niro's last great performances (except for Heat, Casino, Cape Fear and This Boy's Life).

1. Silence of the Lambs; One of the top 5 scariest movies I've ever seen lol

Its like if you're making cookies shaped like christmas trees, you use the same cookie cutter every time and the shape is the same everytime.

It means that all those movies are kinda the same. They all have the same basic design.
