Mill Creek’s Through the Decades: 1990s Collection has some great movies for a great price like Housesitter, White Palace, One True Thing, Donnie Brasco, The Devil’s Own, The Matchmaker, Anaconda, I Know What You Did Last Summer, The Freshman and The Deep End of the Ocean. You can get it from Deep Discount.
I’ve really been enjoying these Mill Creek decades sets, as I haven’t seen so many of these movies, as within these decades I’ve mostly devoted my time to genre films. That means that while I may not love every movie that I watch, I at least get to see something different.
The quality of each film is good and while there aren’t any extras, again you’re getting ten higher budget movies for one low budget price. I’d recommend these sets to anyone who wants to add new movies to their collection or if you’re like me and want to do an exploration of mainstream film that you otherwise missed.
Here’s a recap of each film:
Housesitter: After a one night stand, Gwen moves into Newton Davis’ empty home outside the city without telling him. When the neighbors start to ask questions, Gwen tells them that she’s Newton’s new wife.
The Matchmaker: Marcy, a senator’s aide, arrives in Ireland to trace her boss’s Irish roots and happens to arrive in a quaint country village just in time for its annual matchmaking festival. A young, single woman kicks local matchmakers into a frenzy.
White Palace: Young ad executive and widower Max Baron is still picking up the pieces after the death of his wife. One night, he meets 43-year-old waitress Nora Baker, and the two soon begin a heated love affair despite their obvious differences.
One True Thing: A career-driven New York woman is forced to leave behind the big city life to take care of her seriously ill mother. While back home, she learns more about her parents lives as people apart from her.
Donnie Brasco: FBI agent Joe Pistone infiltrates the New York City mafia and forms an unlikely bond with mobster Lefty Ruggiero. Before long Pistone begins to question where his loyalties lie.
The Devil’s Own: Police officer Tom O’Meara begins to uncover his house guest’s true identity as an IRA hitman/gunrunner, a secret that puts his family in mortal danger.
The Freshman: A first-year film student starts working with a New York mobster who resembles a famous movie mafioso and is soon swept up a world of crime and fine dining.

I Know What You Did Last Summer: Four teenagers are stalked by a hook-wielding killer with knowledge of their terrible secret.
