Jurassic Park (1993)
Leapin’ lizards! Michael Crichton, who wrote the book about reanimated dinosaurs feasting on people, said, “It allows Spielberg to work somewhere between the poles of Jaws and E.T.” But the movie is packed with serious science ideas that “are much more important than the munches,” Crichton said. Also on Netflix: two Jurassic sequels.

Runaway Bride (1999)
OK, it’s only half as good as Julia Roberts and Richard Gere’s first movie together, Pretty Woman. But everyone ran to the theaters in 1999 to see her as a gal who jilted three guys at the altar and him as a muckraking journalist on her trail.
