Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus made the pinnacle of political documentaries, acting as flies on the wall of the 1992 Bill Clinton presidential campaign and the insiders like James Carville and George Stephanopoulos who obsessed over the election.Comedies would move away from the ludicrous cartoon character Mike Myers creates in Austin Powers and Dr. Evil, but their dopey charm still hold up be it in trying to carefully hide nudity or in silly gags about a Swedish penis enlarger.After an oxygen tank explodes, the astronauts are forced to abort their lunar landing and broke a record for the farthest humans had ever been from Earth when they passed the other side of the moon. –The trend all began here, with the fictional story of three filmmakers heading into the woods to document the local legend of the Blair Witch – resulting in a terrifying 81 minutes of low budget horror that many movie-goers around the world thought was real.The use of guerilla style marketing on the internet (which was revolutionary at the time) and tricks like the distribution of flyers at Sundance looking for the missing filmmakers sparked endless debate over what was fact or fiction … and led to a box office haul of $248.6 million from an initial budget of $60,000. –Robert Altman brought his overlapping dialogue and fly-on-the-wall style to make a satire and stirring commentary on modern Hollywood.“The English Patient” is a searing weeper (though don’t ask Elaine Benes) caught up between war, global politics and a man badly burned in a plane crash.How many kids learned about death by watching Mufasa get trampled by a stampede of wildebeests? “The Lion King” is heavy drama for a kids movie, despite the fancy-free “Hakuna Matata” and countless other catchy tunes.[...] this feminist fairy tale continues to captivate audiences with its idiosyncratic characters. –Named for an Eazy-E song written by O’Shea “Ice Cube” Jackson, and featuring Cube as troubled drug dealer Doughboy, “Boys N the Hood” showed the vulnerability of people struggling for a way out of South-Central — not just the stereotypical caricatures presented in hip-hop lyrics and, worse, the evening news.Whit Stillman made a gorgeous ’90s trilogy of films about young urbanites in love, then spent 13 years in limbo until his next sublime project, 2011’s “Damsels in Distress.”[...] the “Lady and the Tramp” discussion marks the high point of the very 90s cinematic trend of twentysomething characters waaaaaaaay overanalyzing cartoons.A disquieting mixture of the carnal and the spiritual (with, strangely enough, a killer ’70s Brit-rock soundtrack), “Breaking the Waves” announced the arrival of a filmmaker who would keep on shaking us up with the likes of “Dancer in the Dark,” “Antichrist,” “Melancholia” and “Nymphomaniac.” –Country gals Dottie and Kit (Geena Davis and Lori Petty) are pitched way out of their comfort zone with the help of a pair of mouthy New Yorker teammates (Madonna and Rosie O’Donnell), and a heavy-drinking manager (Tom Hanks) as they play for a World Series Peaches with the Rockford Peaches.Robert Zemeckis seeks to chronicle the American experience in the 20th Century and does so without cynicism and an eye toward folksy charm and magic.Danny Boyle’s film has a dirty, hilarious sense of humor and the energy of a chase movie, not to mention a great British punk attitude, but it doesn’t glamorize drug use.The film itself drags in some places and Swank’s casting — when a trans actor could’ve been cast instead — only shows we’ve come a long way since 1999 in terms of trans representation.“Babe” is a lovely fable about a pig who learns to act like a sheep dog and earns the love and nurturing of a caring farmer played by James Cromwell.Based on the psychological thriller novel written by Patricia Highsmith, “The Talented Mr. Ripley” gave viewers their first glimpse of golden boy Matt Damon in a sinister role as the cunning Tom Ripley.
