I love spending a relaxing evening curled up in bed watching movies or series, depending on my mood. One of my favourite things is to revisit those films I grew up watching.
To me, there is nothing better than the '90s. That era was so iconic that to this day I still listen to music, watch films and series that were released during that time.
I have so much nostalgic experiences to go over and share with you, but for the sake of this post, I'm just going to talk about some of my favourite movies from the '90s that I think are just perfect to watch, specially during a chilled Autumn evening.
This movies are not necessarily Autumn-themed. They are movies I consider to be iconic and so amazing that I just transport myself back in time while watching them.
Sleepless in Seattle (1993)
The most iconic romantic movie of the '90s. The journey of finding real love and how far you're willing to go in order to meet the person of your dreams. This movie is sappy, sad, happy, corny all at the same time.
Starring: Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks
Plot: A recently widowed man's son calls a radio talk-show in an attempt to find his father a partner.
When I think about the '90s, this movie ticks all the checkboxes. The fashion in it is incredible and there is no one more iconic than Cher Horowitz.
Starring: Alicia Silverstone, Paul Rudd and Brittany Murphy
Plot: A rich high school student tries to boost a new pupil's popularity, but reckons without affairs of the heart getting in the way.
Little Women (1994)
A classic novel turned into a beautiful film. I love watching this movie when I need to relax and just feel cosy.
Starring: Susan Sarandon, Winona Ryder and Kirsten Dunst
Plot: The March sisters live and grow in post-Civil War America.
Runaway Bride (1999)
Julia Roberts was an icon during the '90s. And I think this is one of her best movies from that decade. This film makes me miss the old rom-coms off the '90s.
Starring: Julia Roberts and Richard Gere
Plot: A reporter is assigned to write a story about a woman who has left a string of fiances at the altar.
The Parent Trap (1998)
The Parent Trap has got to be one of the most perfect films Disney has ever made. This movie has everything I long for in a story and I'm not afraid to admit that I cry every time I watch it. Also, the fashion in this movie is iconic.
Starring: Lindsay Lohan, Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson
Plot: Identical twins Annie and Hallie, separated at birth and each raised by one of their biological parents, later discover each other for the first time at summer camp and make a plan to bring their wayward parents back together.
You've Got Mail (1998)
Meg Ryan was the queen of the '90s rom-coms- which has nothing to do with the movie at all. I just wanted to let the world know.
If you want to go back in time and revisit the the old days of emails and slow internet with a twist of love and silly comedy then this is the best film for that.
Starring: Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks
Plot: Two business rivals who despise each other in real life unwittingly fall in love over the Internet.
The Lion King (1994)
This is the best movie ever made. Go watch it now!
Starring: Matthew Broderick, Jeremy Irons, James Earl Jones
Plot: A lion cub crown prince is tricked by a treacherous uncle into thinking he caused his father's death and flees into exile in despair, only to learn in adulthood his identity and his responsibilities.
Legends of the Fall (1994)
Brad Pitt is the most handsome he has ever been in this film. Honestly, he looks beautiful and perfect... and the movie is great.
Starring: Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins
Plot: In the early 1900s, three brothers and their father living in the remote wilderness of Montana are affected by betrayal, history, love, nature, and war.
Practical Magic (1998)
There were a lot of witch movies made in the '90s but this is one of the most iconic ones. It's such a fan favourite and perfect to watch on Halloween.
Starring: Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman
Plot: Two witch sisters, raised by their eccentric aunts in a small town, face closed-minded prejudice and a curse which threatens to prevent them ever finding lasting love.
Hocus Pocus (1993)
You know this movie is a classic. I don't even have to explain why.
Starring: Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy
Plot: A curious youngster moves to Salem, where he struggles to fit in before awakening a trio of diabolical witches that were executed in the 17th century.
If you're a '90s kid, let me know what were some of your favourite movies and series. Also, if you want me to do other throwback posts from things I love about the '90s, then be sure to let me know in the comments. I would love to revisit even more cool things about the best decade of my life.
I hope you really enjoyed this post. Thank you so much for reading.
Until next time.
