Bluray wishlist/guide to 90s teen movies

Without giving away my age too much, back in the 90s I was a high school student and so these films really take me back to that time, the good and the bad. The fashion, the gadgets (old school mobiles), the music! Some were horror, some was about teenage witches! The 90s just seemed to have so many great ones, to rival even the great John Hughes teen movies of the 80s!
Here is a selection of the movies I want to get on bluray!

Clueless 1995

Alicia Silverstone, Paul Rudd, Brittany Murphy, Breckin Meyer

In my opinion Clueless is the best teen comedy of the 90s, and one of the best ever!

The craft 1996

Neve Campbell, Fairuza Balk, Robin Tunney, Christine Taylor, Breckin Meyer, Skeet Ulrich

Cruel Intentions 1999

Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillipe, Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair, Joshua Jackson 

Never been kissed 1999

Drew Barrymore, David Arquette, Jessica Alba, Marley Shelton, Molly Shannon, John C Reilly

Empire records 1995

Liv Tyler, Robin Tunney, Renee Zellweger, Rory Cochrane

Reality bites 1994

Winona Ryder, Ethan Hawke, Ben Stiller, Janeane Garofalo,  Steve Zahn

I realise this is not technically 'teen', but I loved it as a teenager and I think it speaks to older teens who are leaving school/college and going into the 'real world' and in between being a teenager and a 'grown up'.

10 things I hate about you 1999

Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Larisa Oleynik (Alex Mack)
Shes all that 1999

Freddie Prinze Jr., Rachael Leigh Cook, Matthew Lillard, Paul Walker, Anna Paquin, Keiran Culkin, Usher, Lil' Kim, Clea Duvall

Election 1999

Reese Witherspoon, Matthew Broderick, Chris Klein

So I just realised that most of these were released in 1999, not sure if that means I enjoyed them more this year or that most of the best ones were out in 1999.

Some others that I like too but not sure if I will get on bluray -
  • Urban Legends 1998 - Jared Leto, Alicia Witt, Rebecca Gayheart, Joshua Jackson, Tara Reid

  • Dazed and confused 1993 (I already have a really awesome criterion dvd copy so not sure on getting the bluray too) - Matthew McConaughey, Milla Jovovich, Jason London, Rory Cochrane, Adam Goldberg, Ben Affleck

  • American Pie 1999 - Tara Reid, Jason Biggs, Chris Klein, Alyson Hannigan, Seann William Scott, Eugene Levy, Mena Suvari, Natasha Lyonne

  • Drop dead gorgeous 1999 - Kirstin Dunst, Denise Richards, Brittany Murphy, Amy Adams

  • Jawbreaker 1999 - Rose McGowan, Rebecca Gayheart, Julie Benz (Pre-dexter), Tatyana Ali

  • Scream 1996 - Drew Barrymore, Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, David Arquette, Rose McGowan, Skeet Ulrich, Matthew Lillard, Jamie Kennedy

  • Scream 2  - Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, David Arquette, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Joshua Jackson, Jada Pinkett Smith, Heather Graham, Liev Schreiber, Timothy Olyphant, Jerry O'Connell, Rebecca Gayheart, Portia Di Rossi, Jamie Kennedy

  • The faculty 1998 - Josh Hartnett, Clea Duvall, Jordana Brewster, Salma Hayek, Famke Janssen, Usher, Elijah Wood

  • I know what you did last summer 1997 - Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillipe, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freddie Prinze Jr., Johnny Galecki, Anne Heche
  • Fear 1996 - Reese Witherspoon, Mark Wahlberg ( He is really terrifying in this film)

  • Don't tell mom the babysitters dead 1990 - Christina Applegate 

Are there any that I may have missed? I just want to re-watch all of these movies all over again now!
