Lucky You.  The first movie I really ever remember seeing in the Theaters was "Super Mario Brothers"  back in June 1993. What irritates me about that to this day is that at the exact same time I went to see that movie, "Jurassic Park" was playing at the Theater  >:(

I wish I had gotten to see Jurassic Park in theaters, it would have been a hell of an experience

I remember my mother renting Terminator 2 when it first came out on video in Late 1992, and I still remember her going to see Forrest Gump and Saving Private Ryan in theaters.  When she went to see "Saving Private Ryan", I was in another theater watching "Doctor Doolittle", lol.  I just thought "Saving Private Ryan" would be too boring for me

I really wish I had gotten to see "Phantom Menace" in theaters, but I didn't care at all for Star Wars back then.  I barely knew the difference between Star Wars and Star Trek.  I just became a Star Wars fan for the first time this past April and I did get to see "Sith" in theaters. I'm glad I can atleast say that  :)

If you're a guy & you liked Titanic you are seriously gay.


I, being a straight male who hated Titanic, still find this comment to be a little insensitive, illogical, and simply untrue. I'm certain there are many straight men who enjoyed the film even if you or I did not.

Easily T2 because it's early 90s & reminds me of then. For me 94/95 onwards wasn't even the 90s as far as i'm concerened, it just reminds me of this era which is just a continuation of the late 90s. Also because it is a great movie even now. With the exception of Forest Gump i hated all the other ones, especially Titanic. If you're a guy & you liked Titanic you are seriously gay.


And you're simply just an idiot

This was a hard one. I like every one of those movies. At first I thought Saving private Ryan for sure or Jurassic Park.While both are awesome movies, I found that Home Alone is the one I have watched the most from the 90s. Its a rare all round good movie. No big special effects or really big stars(not that theres anything wrong with that), just a great story.

Awww poor thing, are you gonna cry about it now.  I'm sorry but that's the kind of soppy crap that guys are made to watch by their girlfriends. Thankfully my girlfriend is of the same opion i am about those sort of films. For the record i've never met a straight guy or gay guy for that matter that actually liked that film. They took the story about the Titanic disaster & turned it into the usual Hollywood garbage. So why don't all you bleeding hearts go have a cry about it on Oprah.
