Movie suggestions needed for a new segment


Recommended Posts

I have an idea for a movie review segment, but I need your help. Please suggest to me movies that are no longer than 90 minutes. This is very strict; even 91 minutes is too long. (Once I get the segment rolling, I'll explain why that is.) The movies can be feature films, direct-to-video, and / or animated.

I won't do any of the animated DC movies, if only so I can save them for full reviews with James. And the shorts are too short. These need to be full movies.

So far my list includes:

The Nightmare Before Christmas


Shoot 'Em Up

Beavis and Butt-head Do America

Fantastic Mr. Fox

Toy Story


Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Stand by Me

The Iron Giant

The Limey

Here's a few films which meet your brief, I've tried to keep it varied across genre and when it was made:

Silent Running (89 minutes)

Phone Booth (81 minutes)

Run Lola Run (81 minutes)

Following (it is only 69 minutes, which might be too short, but it is a lesser known Christopher Nolan film)

The Mouse That Roared (83 minutes)

Paths of Glory (An early Stanley Kubrick film, 88 minutes)

Once (85 minutes)

Attack the Block (88 minutes)

Eraserhead (85 minutes)

I hope this helps.
