As we all know, "Best decade for music" threads are a dime a dozen. On the other hand, I have never seen a best decade for movies thread.


So, ladies and gentlemen, Pit Monkeys of all shapes and sizes, what is your favorite decade for movies?

But Itchy, you started this awesome thread, but didn't tell us what your favorite decade is! Well, for me, you can't beat the 90's. Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Good Burger. So many greats.

90's were great, Fight Club and American Beauty in 1999. Them and Pulp Fiction are my all time favs
#3
90's

It had Pulp Fiction, Forest Gump, Terminator 2, The Matrix, and American History X

Being the fan of Disney's second golden age that I am, I voted '90s. It's pretty difficult to narrow down my favorite movies to just one decade though.
#5
I say the 2000s cause that's when most of my top favorite movies came out

I was wondering who would point that out. It may not be a "great" But it's still one of my favorites.

90's.
Edward Scissorhands
The Piano
Schindler's List
Ed Wood
Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas
Pulp Fiction
American History X
Army Of Darkness
In The Name Of The Father

And so many more. <3

EDIT: Unlike music, I don't really feel that there was a better era for movies. The 90's are what I grew up on so I'm used to the texture of the film quality and that kind of nostalgic feel. Otherwise, every era has its share of incredible movies, even this current one.

Gotta be the 50's followed closely by the 60's. So many timeless classics came out during that time.

Good movies have come out in a fairly constant stream since the 1920's. No decade is better than any other.

This.

To me it's a tie between the 60's and 70's

clockwork orange, one flew over the cuckoo's nest, taxi driver, 2001: space odyssey, dog day afternoon, star wars, dr strangelove...

although i love the 90's as well
'never a victim,' the role model said,
bang-bang, the bad guy is dead,
always a rockstar on eMpty TV,
the lesson complete, now the child has needs.

Buckaroo Banzai!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But the best decade was the late 60s and early 70s. Woody Allen's stuff, The Sting, Butch Cassidy, The Graduate etc. The best. But the 30s were good to, of your into crime movies and such.

All of my favorite movies are spread out between the decades. There's very good movies made in all, and I don't think one is better than the rest.
