List: Top 3 90s Movies About the 90s

This week on Episode 297 of the InSession Film Podcast, inspired by Mid90s, we thought it would be fun to re-visit that time period. The 90’s was an interesting era that is probably nostalgic for a lot of us. As you’ll hear in our review of Mid90s, we grew up not to dissimilar from Stevie as we came into our own during that same time period. That’s exactly what made this topic challenging, as most of the films that best define the 90’s we didn’t see until later in life. Although, some of those films we saw as kids still very much qualifies for this list. All in all, it was fun to re-visit that time period and talk about what made it so unique. That said, here are our lists:

(Note: Please keep in mind that we each had different criteria for our selections)


1) Clueless
2) The Big Lebowski
3) Clerks


1) Singles
