Power Of The Cult Cinema

Most of us are busy in trying to make a difference in the world, some are trying to make their mark while others are merely hoping to go by through the day without killing anyone. What keeps us going on? Well, I’d say the happy memories of the days gone by. Now, we can’t ever go back to the good old days when life was carefree, but we can definitely revisit the memories by reconnecting with those happier times. And what better way to forgo of today’s worries than by indulging in your favorite movies I say. For anyone claiming to be in love with the cinema, it is essential to acquaint themselves with the cult classics that can still make anyone’s heart explode with delight.

Here is my list of few of the 90s’ cult movies, worth re-watching today, tomorrow and even day after tomorrow.


Pulp Fiction (1994)

Director: Quentin Tarantino

This is the movie that made sure, the world knows what a Quarter Pounder with Cheese is called in Paris!


Reservoir Dogs (1992)

Director: Quentin Tarantino

Groovy music with gruesome visuals. But what a treat this movie was!

A movie with a very touching message. Pun intended.


Fargo (1996)

Director: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen

A simple plan gone horribly wrong and the momma-to-be is out to get the guilty.


Dazed and Confused (1993)

This movie is definitely guilty of raising hopes of an entire generation into believing what high school is going to be like.


Rushmore (1998)

Trainspotting (1996)

Timeless movie with a deeply sober core.


This list, by no means, does completely encompass the epic history of 90s cinema. This happens to be just a pea in the pod. These movies, along with other hits, have helped people grow, mature and even understand the depths of human psychology. Film is, no doubt, a very strong media and its power is doubled when it is used for the betterment of society. Here is to hoping the power of this media continues to spread awareness.
