7º – Independence Day (Roland Emmerich, 1996)After aliens invade the land and plan to destroy humanity, it is up to the U.S. authorities to devise a desperate plan to prevent this. One of the most emblematic popcorn films of the 1990s, ‘Independence Day’ enchants with its special effects that impress even today. One of the best options of the seventh art about alien invasions.
6º – Tremors (Ron Underwood, 1990)Representing nostalgic home cinema, ‘Tremors’ (as well as its sequences) took over our afternoons in the 1990s. The film tells the story of underground creatures who start to terrorize a small isolated city, promoting deaths in every corner.
5º – Beverly Hills Ninja (Dennis Dugan, 1997)A man, completely maladjusted, created with ninjas, decides to try to help in the rescue of a beautiful young woman. In the course of the mission, the man will get involved in the most diverse confusions, always exacerbating what was already terrible. A shallow comedy that uses a more physical humour, ‘Beverly Hills Ninja’ provokes real laughter from the spectator for a simple detail: the hilarious presence of Chris Farley as protagonist. Guaranteed fun for that most tedious day.
4º – Jingle All the Way (Brian Levant, 1996)After disappointing his wife and small child several times for excessive professional obligations, a man hopes to earn his redemption by buying an incredible doll to give to the child at Christmas. The problem is that he forgets to buy the toy, leaving the task of finding something practically impossible for Christmas Eve. No matter the sense of weakness exposed by the script and some exaggerated scenes. Here, all the brightness of the film is found in the remarkable presence of Arnold Schwarzenegger in front of the protagonist and all that unique Christmas atmosphere that emanates at each level.
