Pulp Fiction (1), Fight Club (2), and Crumb (3) are certainly my top three of the '90s. I haven't put a lot of thought into the rest yet.

1. Naked
2. Pulp Fiction
3. Saving Private Ryan
4. Killing Zoe
5. Unforgiven
6. Barton Fink
7. GoodFellas
8. Audition
9. Schindler's List

And the 5 funnest movies of the 90s (Not counting T2, Groundhog Day and Swingers)...
1. Wild Things
2. Mars Attacks!
3. eXistenZ
4. The Big Lewboski
5. True Romance

From my top 100 that hasn't been updated in a while:

7. Schindler's List (1993)
16. Pulp Fiction (1994)
23. American Beauty (1999)
34. Naked (1993)
40. Raise the Red Lantern (1991)
53. Red (1994)
55. Glengarry Glen Ross (1992)
59. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
75. Chasing Amy (1997)
76. Magnolia (1999)

85. Welcome to the Dollhouse (1995)
86. Trainspotting (1996)
88. The Sweet Hereafter (1997)
89. The Sixth Sense (1999)
91. Twelve Monkeys (1995)
92. The Matrix (1999)
93. Beauty and the Beast (1991)
94. Clerks. (1994)
95. Happiness (1999)
SPOT TO BE DETERMINED: The Blair Witch Project (1999), Lola Rennt (1998), Delicatessen (1991), The Adventures of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert (1994)

My love for Schindler's List has waned in recent months and my affection for American Beauty and The Shawshank Redemption are not what they used to be, but there you have it. My top 23 haha. I'm a little perturbed that there are only two foreign films, pending the two that will come in with the revision. Certainly I'm missing something.

Yes, The Sixth Sense is in my top 100. This is partially due to my affection of the genre, mind you, but I'd be happy if no one gave me flack for it. It's a very effective and atmospheric horror film; I don't care if the director went on to direct Paris Hilton taking a shit.

When you're ten favorite films are Memento, The Decalogue, Citizen Kane, 2001, Jaws, Do the Right Thing, Schindler's List, The Bicycle Thief, Taxi Driver and No Country for Old Men, you're allowed to like The Sixth Sense :D

Apparently I should have put The Happening in Cache's spot. XD I promise to see Cache before I see The White Ribbon, which I imagine I'll see at point in February. If I'm good, I'll see Cache before the decade's end.

24. Exotica (1994)
23. Before Sunrise (1995)

18. Funny Games (1997)
17. Hate (1995)
16. Glengarry Glen Ross (1992)
15. The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
14. A Simple Plan (1998)
13. Dark City (1998)
12. In the Company of Men (1997)
11. American Beauty (1999)

Alright let's give this a try:

10. Dance With Wolves
9. Braveheart
8. The Sweet Hereafter
7. Goodfellas
6. Saving Private Ryan
5. Schindler's List
4. Fight Club
3. L.A. Confidential
2. Reservoir Dogs
1. Pulp Fiction

Honorable Mentions: Leon: The Professional (Extended Cut), American Beauty, Grand Canyon, Three Kings (maybe)

As far as the top-10, I'm only positive about the first 4 titles of their positions on this list; the others are subject to change but I consider all of these to be 4-star worthy.
