The nineties were quite the time for movies. Disney flicks reigned supreme and a strange mix of action flicks and period pieces took home Academy Awards. Tom Hanks and Mel Gibson were everywhere, and Star Wars experienced a resurgence.

This begs the question, what were the biggest movies of the 1990s? We know what's stood the test of time — like Toy Story. And what hasn't — ahem, Shakespeare in Love. Below, see how much movie chatter from the '90s you remember and guess which film grossed the most at the box office.
  1. What was the No. 1 movie of 1990?
  2. What was the No. 1 movie of 1991?
  3. What was the No. 1 movie of 1992?
  4. What was the No. 1 movie of 1993?
  5. What was the No. 1 movie of 1994?
  6. What was the No. 1 movie of 1995?
  7. What was the No. 1 movie of 1996?
  8. What was the No. 1 movie of 1997?
  9. What was the No. 1 movie of 1998?
  10. What was the No. 1 movie of 1999?

10/10 private Ryan and silence of the lambs were the best movies for their yr, kids like cartoons for reason of ticket sales

Now if you were picking the best movies of the year based on artistic merit:
90: Dances with Wolves
91: Silence of the Lambs
92: None of these above (A League of Their Own, White Men Can't Jump, Malcolm X, Unforgiven, Reservoir Dogs, Crying Game, Glengarry Glen Ross, The Bad Lieutenant)
93: Schindler's List (just don't let Jerry Seinfeld make out during the film)
94: Forrest Gump
95: Apollo 13
96: slight edge to Independence Day (Fargo, The English Patient, The People vs. Larry Flint, Sling Blade)
97: None of these above (Good Will Hunting, Full Monty, Jackie Brown, LA Confidential, Amistad) (Titanic was the worst movie to ever earn an Oscar for Best Picture)
98: Saving Private Ryan or Shakespeare in Love would both work (The Big Lebowski also a candidate)
99: None of these above. (American Beauty, Green Mile, Boys Don't Cry, Man on the Moon)

The two I got wrong were not wrong. Forrest Gump grossed more than The Lion King, and Saving Private Ryan grossed more than Armageddon.

7/10. The one that really surprised me was "Aladdin" outgrossing "Batman Returns".

The first Batman was the best and any that followed were poor follow ups.
