The 1990s are responsible for many amazing things, but the films produced during that decade might be some of the best.
Sure, the Dream Team was incredible, and the entire nation was rooting them on during the '92 Olympics, but Air Bud was easily just as impressive, if not more so.
The trials of O.J. Simpson and Mary Kay Letourneau gripped the country, but A Few Good Men and Primal Fear both also captivated viewers on a similar level.
We were lucky enough to get Dunk-a-roos, Fruit Gushers, and Mondo in the '90s, but we were also given Dumb and Dumber, Clueless and Home Alone.
For all the pop culture trends it turned out, the 1990s delivered just as many quality and memorable films.
Fast forward to today, we now have the luxury of Netflix, who conveniently serves up tons of great '90s flicks right at the touch of our fingertips.
Scroll down to see 9 movies from the '90s you need to watch on Netflix.
Starring: Leon, Doug E. Doug, Rawle D. Lewis, Malik Yoba and John Candy
The true story of the Jamaican bobsled team's 1988 Winter Olympics debut was a big deal, but this inspirational sports film based on the importance of what those men did took it to a whole new level.
We got a glimpse into the most pure and unadulterated sense of hope, as we watched them train for weeks and then make it to the finals only to have their spirits dashed. And yet, they still prevailed. It's very heartwarming as well as hilarious.
Cool Runnings is streaming on Netflix and one of the most worthwhile films to come out of the 1990s.prevnext
The Good Son
Starring: Macaulay Culkin and Elijah Wood
The Good Son is not the most well-known '90s movie, but for anyone who grew up in the '90s, it has the ultimate showdown... Macaulay Culkin V. Elijah Wood. It doesn't get much more iconic than that for '90s kids.
This was Huckleberry Finn going head-to-head with Kevin McCallister. It's dark and creepy, and if given another chance would certainly earn new fans. It was fairly successful at the box office as well, earning over $60 million on a budget of under $20 million.
If you want to something terrifying and nostalgic, you should pull up The Good Son on Netflix tonight.prevnext

Armageddon is often dropped into the "catastrophe" film genre, alongside movies like Deep Impact and Volcano, but really it's just a good action movie.
Movies about mass catastrophe were huge in the 1990s, but if you examine Armageddon more closely you'll see that it doesn't have nearly as much catastrophe as a lot of its counterparts. It was very iconic in many ways and even had a killer soundtrack. Netflix has it luckily, so make sure you add it to your watchlist.prevnext
The Little Rascals
Starring: Travis Tedford, Kevin Jamal Woods, Jordan Warkol, Zachary Mabry, Ross Elliot Bagley, Courtland Mead, Sam Saletta, Blake Jeremy Collins, Blake McIver Ewing, Juliette Brewer, Heather Karasek, Brittany Ashton Holmes, and Bug Hall
Maybe one of the most beloved film remakes of all-time, The Little Rascals movie perfectly captured everything that was great about the Our Gang shorts of the the '20s and '30s.prevnext
Men In Black
Starring: Tommy Lee Jones, Will Smith, Linda Fiorentino, Vincent D'Onofrio, Rip Torn, and Tony Shalhoub
Men in Black didn't necessarily reinvent the sci-fi genre, but it did cement Will Smith's action star status.
Prior to MIB, Smith had done two other big films. Bad Boys in 1995, and Independence Day in 1996. While both were successful, Men In Black completed the trifecta of back-to-back hits for Smith, sealing him in a bonafide A-lister.
If it has been too long since you watched Smith and Tommy Lee Jones fight off aliens, Netflix has you covered.prevnext

It depicts astronauts Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert, and Fred Haise "aboard Apollo 13 for America's third Moon landing mission.

The Shawshank Redemption is a dramatic film based on the the 1982 Stephen King novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption.

Interestingly, the film was directed by Frank Darabont who also directed the King adaptations The Green Mile and The Mist, and went on to develop The Walking Dead on AMC. If you feel so inclined, you can pull up the The Shawshank Redemption on Netflix right now.prevnext
