10 Movies Forgotten By History But That Are Forever In Our Hearts
The 90s had a bunch of hugely successful ventures that completely took over popular culture. Whether it's movies like Jurassic Park, Home Alone, or The Matrix, it seemed like there was no shortage of amazing stories to enjoy.
But what about those movies that were maybe a little bit less popular? A lot of us became completely obsessed with movies that maybe didn't have the same enormous following, but that didn't mean the fans weren't equally obsessed.
These are the best cult classics from the 90s, see if your favorite is one of them!
1. Pulp Fiction
The epic return of John Travolta into popular culture has given a lot of people quotable moments for over 20 years now. Also, you cannot escape that dance, people will do that until the end of time.
2. The Big Lebowski
The crazy characters, dream sequences and unconventional story line helped make this movie into something that people had never seen before, and luckily they seemed to love it.
3. Office Space
A realistic look on people in the workplace hit really close to home. It did moderately well, but the home sales made it a huge success.
4. Empire Records
A day in the life of teens at a record store may not seem very exciting, but it's honestly one of the best movies from the decade, hands down. It feels a lot more honest then some of the others, and it is just so much fun to watch.
5. Fight Club
Fight Club seems to be one of those movies that every guy in high school was obsessed with. No matter who you asked, they absolutely loved this movie. It ended up doing pretty well in its inital release, but DVD sales helped it get cult classic status.
What else have we continued to watch?
She was the Beverly Hills princess we all loved, and honestly were a bit jealous of. The movie was a pretty big hit and honestly holds up to this day. The outfits, not so much...
7. Reservoir Dogs
Quentin Tarantino would go on to make some truly memorable movies, but this one was his first feature length film. The movies story line helped it reach a modest success but when it went to the UK it managed to do a lot better.
A harsh look at drug addiction, the movie was cheap to make and gained a huge following. It has been ranked 10th on the list of "Top British Films of the 20th Century" by the British Film Institue, so obviously it must be pretty good.
9. Tank Girl
Before comic book movies were the huge blockbusters they are now, Tank Girl, came out and only made $6 million back of the $25 million budget. Even though it failed at the box office, people still fell in love with the movie and the star, Lori Petty.
10. Dazed and Confused
It was released in 1993, and helped launch Matthew McConaughey into stardom. It barely made more than the budget, but it has remained relevant to this day.
