Since you mentioned 1993, one of my top ten films of all time was made that year: Martin Scorsese's The Age of Innocence. As close to perfect as a movie gets, IMHO.

Cooperstown - Cable TV drama about a baseball talent scout (Alan Arkin) dealing with the ghosts of his past as a big league pitcher. Also starring Ed Begley Jr, Hope Lange, Graham Greene, Josh Charles, Gailard Sartain, Charles Haid, Maria Pitillo, Ann Wedgeworth, and Paul Dooley. I recorded this off of TCM during a spotlight on Arkin's work. This originally premiered on TNT.

Contamination .7 - Awkwardly titled horror flick about a small town that's attacked by the roots of a mutated radioactive tree. Also released as The Crawlers. Italian-made, but in English with American actors.

Update: This one was astonishingly bad. Highly recommended.

Body Snatchers - Third film version of the Jack Finney novel about alien pod-people taking the place of humans in a quest for Earthly domination. Starring Gabrielle Anwar, Forest Whitaker, Terry Kinney, Meg Tilly, Billy Wirth, and R. Lee Ermey. There's 5 credited writers, including Larry (It's Alive) Cohen and Stuart (Re-Animator) Gordon, and Abel Ferrera, know primarily for gritty low-budget New York crime dramas at the time, seems an odd choice for director.  I've seen this once, but I don't recall anything about it.

I recommend for other early 1990s movies:
La Femme Nikita (1990)

 

I'm glad to see someone else likes this one. I think it's very stylish, and helped kickstart the trend towards stronger women in action roles. A lot of it has become cliched by now, with remakes, multiple TV show versions, and other films and shows lifting and repeating elements that were unique at the time. I also think Anne Parillaud is very good in the lead. Jeanne Moreau, Tcheky Karyo, Jean-Hugues Anglade, and the dependable Jean Reno are all also good.

I'm starting this thread to discuss films, TV, music, whatever, released in the past 25~ years. Really anything since 1990 is fair game. A lot of people dislike discussing newer films or whatnot, so I thought I would create a thread just for those items, therefore anyone with temporal sensibilities could avoid it if it upsets them. I'm about to start my stack of 1993 movies, and they just get newer after that, so I wanted to make a place to mention these films that wouldn't intrude on the classic film discussions elsewhere.

 

I also don't think these films (etc.) are out of bounds on a TCM board, since TCM has shown films from as recently as 2011 (The Artist). And as I mentioned above, I encourage people to talk about television, music, or any other cultural event from the past 25~ years.

 

:D
