If you start here:

http://www.thirdeyefilm.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=44&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=345

You will be able to see the beginning of this thread. Unfortunately, I don't know how to move the posts over here.

I'l start off with Marc's first post and repoting my reply from over on the other forum.

Marc wrote:
PULP FICTION is a quintessential nineties film - an indie that became a big hit, a film that plays with and upends genre and form, has a certain postmodernist tongue-in-cheekiness (the casting of Travolta), and is directed by one of the most influential directors of the nineties (Tarantino) - therefore we may want to start the nineties forum with a discussion of PULP FICTION.

I agree. I'd like to participate. PULP FICTION was a film that I found several years after it made the scene. In fact, I saw JACKIE BROWN before I saw PULP FICITON. It remains one of my favorite films of the 90's.

I agree too! In fact Pulp Fiction is at the top of my "Best of '90's Film List."

And like Chilly, I only learned of it after the change in the millenium. I kept wondering after seeing it how I had missed it for so long. It really is a great film.

And since I didn't get a chance to post the rest of my list, I'll do so now. But I have one caveat. I know I must have missed something!

Pulp Fiction
Dog Day Afternoon
The Silence of the Lambs
Goodfellas
Schindler's List
The Shawshank Redemption
Shakespeare in Love
American History X
Saving Private Ryan
Glengarry Glen Ross
The Usual Suspects

Lets begin a discussion on Pulp Ficton next Monday, June 5. That gives everyone the weekend to re-watch the movie. I really don't think this forum will need much moderation. I am willing to keep it moving and on topic.

Lets come up with 4 more films to discuss. I suggest that instead of each society member listing 4 films, that we each pick one or two films and from the resulting collection of picks we choose 4. Of course, other films will enter these discussions. In talking about PULP FICTION, I am sure RESERVOIR DOGS will come up. As wellas all the films that PULP FICTION inspired, including crap like BOONDOCK SAINTS and decent films like LOCK, STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS.

My two: NAKED and FIGHT CLUB.

Cool. It's on my list to re-watch.

And I'll sit down and watch FIGHT CLUB for the first time (yes, that's true... never have seen it). My daughter (movielover14) has seen it and likes it a lot (she saw the edited version on TBS)

Here are some favorite '90's movies:

ROUGH MAGIC
BOUND
SHOWGIRLS (cult)

and one with Jeff Fahey (looking very gorgeous that I can't remember the name of) but it was still a good movie.

I'm with Mo on BOUND... very good movie.

I also suggest VERY BAD THINGS, which was a movie that I laughed my ass off.

So what was the Jeff Fahey movie??

I also liked SWAMP THINGS, the one with Neve Campbell and the ex-Mrs. Charlie Sheen (Denise Richards).

And I loved MEMENTO!

(Gina Gershon is a real '90's kind of chick - BOUND AND SHOWGIRLS...way to go.

There you go. I told you I'd find a few I missed. Unfortunately I didn't think I'd find one this fast!

Wild Things is the correct title, although Swamp seems to cover Mrs. Sheens/Sambora's role a bit better.

And PF will certainly garner some conversation about another great cheeseball ... From Dusk Til Dawn.

Bound's a great film, but I find Showgirls unwatchable.

Wild Things was a decent watch.

From Dusk 'Till Dawn.... expect some feedback from me on that one. Loved that film.

I've yet to see Showgirls. If it's discussed, I'll rent it and watch it.

I loved Memento, but I'd classify it as 'gimmicky' rather than exclusive to one decade. And besides, I think it was done in 2000, like being born on the cusp.

Pulp Fiction is really, really, really THE film of the 90's
