9 Hollywood Movies We Couldn’t Stop Watching In Ghana

Wow, it has really been that long?!

If you didn’t grow up in Ghana during the 90s, you may not have any clue as to what these movies made us feel. Was it the Golden Eye – 007 or Desperado? Wait, how about Die Hard?!

I miss the VHS days!

1. “Desperado” (August 25)

Despite not actually being in the room when Salma Hayek shot her famous nude love scene with Antonio Banderas, director Robert Rodriguez claims the entire crew showed up the day it was filmed to try and catch a glimpse.


2. “GoldenEye” (November 17)

Numerous changes were made to the film’s script during production because the plot was strikingly similar to that of the Arnold Schwarzenegger blockbuster “True Lies” which was released in 1994 while “GoldenEye” was still in production.


3. “Toy Story” (November 22)

“Toy Story” was co-written by “Avengers: Age of Ultron” writer/director Joss Whedon. It’s no wonder it was the first animated film to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.


4. “Jumanji” (December 15)

Scarlett Johansson almost won the role of Judy in “Jumanji,” but the part eventually went to a fellow member of the Child Actresses Turned Major Babes club named Kirsten Dunst.


5. Die Hard: With a Vengeance


6. Bad Boys

Arsenio Hall turned down the role of Mike Lowry; the role was then offered to Will Smith.


7. Batman Forever


8. Mortal Kombat


9. Pocahontas

With its sublime animation, compelling story and wonderful soundtrack, this Disney classic is as great as it ever was.
