The IMDB Challenge
Well, I've never been one to turn down an opportunity like listing favourite movies. I'm not sure 15 years can be narrowed down to 15 movies, but I did have the opportunity some time ago to put together what I think are the strongest films of the 1990s. For the first half of the current decade, I'd have to put films such as Bowling For Columbine and a few others, but here's my entirely non-comprehensive and bias-filled list of the top 10 movies of the 1990s, in no particular order:

1. Pulp Fiction (1994)
2. Seven (1995)
3. Trois couleurs: Bleu (1993)
4. Dark City (1998)
5. Magnolia (1999)
6. The Fisher King (1991)
7. Thirty-Two Short Films About Glen Gould (1993)
8. The Thin Red Line (1998)
9. Hoop Dreams (1994)
10. The Sweet Hereafter (1997)

...yeah, 10 movies isn't enough. I'd love to have Dead Man, Unforgiven, The Remains of the Day and many others on that list. I guess the 1990s were good to movies.
