I feel 74 wins in the 70s, considering you have:

Chinatown
GF II
The Conversation
The Taking of Pelham One Two Three
Blazing Saddles
The Towering Inferno
The Parallax View
Murder On The Orient Express
The Gambler

76 was also an incredibly strong year with films like Network, Taxi Driver, The Outlaw Josey Whales, The Omen, All The President's Men, Rocky, ect.

For the 2000s, I say without question 2007. You have There Will Be Blood and No Country for Old Men in the same year, which IMO were the two best films of that decade.

In that year, you also have gems like:

The Assassination of Jesse James
Zodiac
Eastern Promises
Michael Clayton
Gone Baby Gone
Before The Devil Knows You're Dead
The Orphanage
Sunshine
Juno

An extremely robust year.

90s - I comfortably go with 95. You have gems like:

Se7en
Heat
The Usual Suspects
12 Monkeys
Leaving Las Vegas
Dead Man Walking
Casino
Braveheart
Devil in a Blue Dress
Crimson Tide
Toy Story
Friday
Higher Learning
To Die For

Superb year for film.

Tough decade. The following directors were active in the 40's: Charlie Chaplin, Orson Welles, Howard Hawkes, and Alfred Hitchcock.


1940's


1940 I looked at a top 50 films of the 40's list and 1946 had the most movies listed (8), however quality wise I think 1940 has the best


Fantasia
The Bank Dick (W. C. Fields)
Foreign Correspondent (Hitchcock)
Gaslight
Grapes of Wrath
The Great Dictator (Chaplin)
His Girl Friday (Hawkes)
The Philadelphia Story
Rebecca (Hitchcock)
The Shop around the Corner (Lubitsche)

The Caine Mutiney
Dial M for Murder (Hitchcock)
Rear Window (Hitchcock)
La Strada (Fellini)
and Sabrina

1970's
It was a tough choice for me between 1971 and 1974. In the end 1974 is what I went with. Francis Ford Copola had two big feature films that year: The Godfather pt. 2 and The Conversation.


Chinatown
Young Frankenstein
Blazing Saddles
The Great Gatsby
Alice Doesn't live Here Anymore
Scenes from a Marriage
Lenny
Alice in the Cities

I'll second Stu's recommendation of Children of Men. One of my favorite films of the 2000's.

StuSmallz 05-02-21 10:20 PM

Just starting off with a favorite year for my favorite decade in film (at least when it comes to Hollywood), if I had to pick a favorite from the 70's, it'd be probably be '75:


Jaws
Barry Lyndon
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
Dog Day Afternoon
Monty Python And The Holy Grail




And that's just for starters!
