The Nineties---A Real Roller Coaster Ride---1990---1999

by Maggie Sefton

People enjoying a hike through our beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park, less than an hour from Denver, in Estes Park, CO

Boy, were we ever on a roller coaster ride in the 1990s!  We had the Stock Market soaring to new heights only to be followed by a terrible crash.  We don't have space or time enough to go through all the political upheavals and international events.  So, let's stick to movies.  That's safer, and a whole lot more fun.  :)

Here are the most popular movies of 1990 to 1999 (based on attendance figures) according to various websites.  See if you can remember some of these.  I remember them all:

 FORREST GUMP, THELMA & LOUISE, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, THE SIXTH SENSE, THE LION KING,  GROUNDHOG DAY, THE ICE AGE, and surprisingly, a favorite of mine from those years, L.A. CONFIDENTIAL   Did you folks see any of these?
