One of the very best things about Netflix is how often it can satisfy your every whim and desire, with very little effort on basically anyone's part. You want a thing, you hit a couple buttons, you have the thing. It's beautiful. For me, the "thing" in question is often a totally addicting, probably-not-critically-acclaimed movie from the '90s about love or poetry or music or aliens. And a lot of times, Netflix completely delivers. But then other times, it doesn't. For every 10 Things I Hate About You or Heavyweights, there's a dozen awesome, wonderful, memorable '90s movies that I hope will be on Netflix this year, for we know that when it comes to nostalgia hits, the streaming service giveth us, then it taketh away.
Below is my very own personal wish list of movies from the '90s that either have never been on Netflix or were once there but, tragically, are no longer available. Now, I know that I have better things to do than start a bunch of viral campaigns to get these film on Netflix Instant Streaming, but sometimes, it's all I really want to put effort into. When you want to watch Space Jam, you really want to watch it right now, you know what I mean?
