Did you grow up in the ‘90s? I mean a true child of the ‘90s — you were born between 1980-1988 (even that is a stretch because you kinda missed Home Alone, Pretty Woman and Reservoir Dogs all in the early ‘90s).
If you are a true ‘90s child, pull out your old Tamagotchi, Furby or Stretch Armstrong because you know your mom still has it in her spare bedroom. I’ve given you some of the best movies of the ‘90s and some great beverage recs to go with them, since you no longer have to sneak liquor and replace it with water so Dad doesn’t notice.
3 Ninjas (1992)
If you didn’t chant “Rocky loves Emily” right away, then you’re wrong. Grab an Irish Death and watch this absolutely brilliant piece of art.
Sister Act (1992)
After you’ve relived your kindergarten talent show (If my sister’s in trouble so am I) you can watch this movie by yourself in shame. The movie is great, your performance was not. You’ll need a dry martini for this one.
If anyone tries to contact me talking shit about Waterworld, I will end you. You need a classic domestic to go with this epic story.
Edward Scissorhands (1990)
Because who would we all be today without Johnny Depp and Winona? I would open a bottle of red wine and enjoy.
Pulp Fiction (1994)
Schindler’s List (1993)
Again, anything. But this movie is so intense you might not even be able to take a drink until after.
The Mask (1994)
This movie screams for Send It pale ale, I mean when he does that epic dance with Cameron Diaz? Send It Jim Carrey. Side note, he is an artist now, and I’m digging it
The Usual Suspects (1995)
Who is Keyser Soze? Find out with a bottle of bourbon
Chasing Amy (1997)
Rent it, or Netflix it, or whatever you have to do to go see this. Also young Jason Lee and also gin and tonic.
Jack Frost (1998)
Michael Keaton playing a dead snowman. Do you need any more reasons to watch this? White wine will do ya.
Look Who’s Talking Now (1993)
Oh, the classic talking dog movies. You’ll need a couple cold IPAs.
Had to round out this perfect list with one of the best scary movies of all time. I know what you’re thinking, HELLOOO Blair Witch Project? But Neve Campbell can do no wrong. This movie pairs perfectly with my personal favorite, Mocha Death (in cans this September).
