41 '90s Movies On Netflix, HBO & More To Stream In March, From Cult Classic To Oscar Winners

With the arrival of March, 2016 is now remarkably nearly a quarter over. And other than the fact that the year 2016 still sounds like some crazy future date, the date on the calendar also means that the 1990s have never been further in the past. People who will be getting their driver's license this year will have not even lived through a single second of the '90s. That. Is. Insane. But if you did have the good fortune of having lived through the '90s, then you know how many awesome movies were released in that decade. And luckily, you can stream a ton of '90s movies in March.

I've searched across the vast libraries of Netflix, HBO, Amazon Prime, and Hulu to dig up some of the best movies from the '90s that are all streaming right this second. Some of these films are classics from your childhood. Some of them took home the Oscar for Best Picture. A number of them were hugely influential on pop culture in the decade. And a few of them are movies that you may have forgotten ever even existed. So relive the decade with the following 41 films, the best '90s movies to stream in the weird future of March, 2016.
