So the objective of this poll is to name your favorite decade for all cinema and probably name one of your favorite movies from each decade. I will go for the 70s.

Favorites from each decade:
1930s - Gone with The Wind perhaps
1940s - Its A Wonderful Life and Citizen Kane
1950s - Rear Window
1960s - Cleo From 5 to 7
1970s - Tie up between Celine and Julie Go Boating, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and The Holy Mountain
1980s - Indiana Jones the Last Crusade i suppose
1990s - Goodfellas I will go with
2000s - The Dark Knight or Kill Bill
2010s - Whiplash after the decade was over, Toy Story 3 during childhood, and probably anything Marvel towards the end of it, but I lost interest.
2020s - Wait wait, the decade is not over yet. I have not really watched every movie from every decade anyway so for now I will say I liked that Sonic movie a lot. Nothing seems to be out yet this decade around.

Lets hope we have a future generation to make the art, and not one that makes some money. Who is with me?!



The trick is not minding
In all honestly, its a tough cal between 60s (several great film movements from several countries) 70s (dark and grimy and the age of exploitation) and 80s (fun and more lighthearted in general).



Although I'm an old guy I tend to like the newer movies more than the older movies. Movies that I thought were great back in the 50s, 60s and 70s are now embarrassing to watch. I'm not saying that I don't like older movies -- I still like quite a few -- I just like the newer movies more. But I do realize that cinema, like all art forms, obeys Sturgeon's Law, so the percentage of crap movies today is probably about the same as it always has been.

1930s - Wizard Of Oz
1940s - Casablanca
1950s - North By Northwest
1960s - The Apartment
1970s - The Jerk
1980s - Back to the Future
1990s - Shawshank Redemption
2000s - O Brother Where Art Thou
2010s - Silver Linings Playbook
2020s - Everything, Everywhere, All At Once

90s is by far my favorite. It's when I grew it up so a bunch of movies mean a lot to me. Plus I just think it was the perfect timing in cinema history. It's the bridge between modern movies and old movies. It was a great mix of blockbusters and some of the best original flicks were made. Studios weren't afraid to take chances. The artform itself reached it's full maturity in the 90s I thought. I think the decade has the most amount of timeless flicks. Plus comedies exploded in the 90s. Just my 2 cents, but I am bias growing up then.

But seriously, it's the '80s for me. Words fails me, so I'll put it into numbers: two Star Wars movies, three Indiana Jones movies, four (of my favorite) Miyazaki movies, four Star Trek movies (well, the less about the fifth one in the series, the better), eight John Carpenter movies and the several other standouts in three of my favorite genres: fantasy, sci-fi and horror.

1920s - Nosferatu
1930s - M
1940s - The Best Years of our Lives
1950s - 12 Angry Men
1960s - Andrei Rublev
1970s - The Godfather
1980s - Amadeus
1990s - Fargo
2000s - Spirited Away
2010s - Mad Max: Fury Road
2020s - Mad God

Just from 1999 alone:


American Beauty, The Green Mile, Galaxy Quest, Cider House Rules, The Sixth Sense, Office Space, Magnolia, Eyes Wide Shut, The Virgin Suicides, Election, Man on the Moon, Austin Powers: The Spy That Shagged Me, American Pie, Girl, Interrupted, Fight Club, The Boondock Saints, The Insider, Brokedown Palace, Being John Malkovich,



It's the Forties for me. Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Humphrey Bogart, Maureen O'Hara, John Wayne, Gary Cooper etc.
I like the Thirties too. 1939, what a great year. Wizard of Oz , Gone with the Wind, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, Wuthering Heights etc.
Women's pictures was the thing back then.probably because they were the ones going to the movies the most or they wanted to draw them in.
Since the Nineties most movies in American cinema seems to be made for a teenage boy.

Another candidate for great 50s movies is The Seventh Seal. I saw it today and it was mind-blowing.

I love the 40s, 50s, 30s and 60s. Right now I'm working my way through all of Bogart's films staring at the first one. Before that I watched all of John Wayne's films from Stagecoach on. I've been meaning to watch all of the films from Bette Davis and Joan Crawford when I get the chance. Some of those stars really had a lot of movies to their credit, especially Bette Davis.

Sounds like fun! What were your favorite John Wayne movies?
I think my favorite is The Quiet Man.
