It was also a great time for the advancement of special effects which only added to the awesomeness at the box office. Here’s a look back at 40 flicks from the 90s, listed in chronological order, that need to be seen again and again.
Total Recall (1990) – It’s hard to argue with the sheer star power of Arnold Schwarzenegger as an action star in the late 80s and Total Recall definitely set the tone for his success in the 90s.
