90s movies we love

The release of the latest American Pie trailer today got us to thinking how much we love a good 90s movie. It was an era that gave birth to a veritable wealth of cinema gold, from cheesy action flicks to even cheesier dramas, with the odd classic in-between. What's not to love about Forrest Gump running for his life, Jack clinging to Kate on a raft or Drew meeting a messy end thanks to a freak, mask-clad caller, after all?

So in celebration of 90s nostalgia, come join us as we wind back the time and take a look at our all-time favourite films from a decade of pure movie magic...
