CLUELESS (1995)

The most mid-90s of mid-90s movies is somehow based on a Jane Austen novel, and also somehow really good.

DEVIL IN A BLUE DRESS (1995)

A very well-done neo-noir that deals with issues the original film noirs mostly ignored. Denzel Washington plays the detective in over his head.

GOLDENEYE (1995)

James Bond plows into the modern era by blowing up the Arecibo Telescope a quarter century early.

BRAVEHEART (1995)

This epic basically invented modern Scottish nationalism despite a total lack of both subtlety and interest in actual history.
