The movie section needs a bit more traffic, so I've created a general poll that everyone can participate in.

 

The question is simple; which is your favourite decade of movies? To refresh your memory of some of the greatest films of each decade, I've listed them below.

Also holy shit, couldn't believe 2001 was made in 1968 :S

I didn't forget, I just tried to trim each decade down to 10 well known/rated films. Many didn't make the cut unfortunately. Feel free to bring them up however.

I'm torn.

 

I think it would depend on my mood as to what i think is best :lol:

 

For visual effects (were you just got "WOW"): 2010's+. Although, these days there's nothing really new and it's almost the norm.

For Story: 80's and some 90's. Although, the 80's sticks to the mind.

For groundbreaking stories/effects/shock: 70's.

Yeah same. I was torn between the 70s and 90s. The 70s was full of ground breaking story lines and concepts such as Alien. Where by the 90s they had really polished the story telling with films such as The Matrix and Fight Club.

For me I'd probably say the '90's.

I enjoyed Terminator 2 (1991) more than the first. Then there was Jim Carrey's peak during that period (Dumb and Dumber (1994), The Mask (1994))

Toy Story and Jurassic park were great.

 

80's would be a close second as I'm a big fan of the Back To The Future series.

I was born around mid 80s, so to be cliche, there was something magical about movies in the mid to late 90s which watched at the cinema. The same could be said for action movies of the 80s like Terminator and Die Hard, which I was old enough to be allowed to see in the same time period.

 

Realistically though, my vote goes to 2010+. The technology now allows directors to make movies that simply wouldn't be possible in the past (or would have looked laughable if they tried it), meaning a whole range of storylines are now possible. Unlike the past, the push these days is for realistic acting rather than the often-spoofy acting of the 60s-90s (compare Dr. No or The Man With The Golden Gun to the acting in Skyfall) and where appropriate to the storyline, brutal violence is depicted, rather than suggestion through cinematic technique.
