    I suspect this is what it all comes down to ultimately. Although if one watched films from other decades while growing up, they'd consider them to be the best decade.

    Probably Kick-Ass for me.

    A lot of those in just one year too (1994). Surely the greatest year ever for films? When Shawshank and Pulp Fiction don't win an Oscar because Forrest Gump swept the awards you know it's been a good year.

    15 in the sixties, 12 in the seventies. Closer than I thought. I rewatched them all the other year and didn't think there was so many made in the seventies when it finished up, as the quality dwindled.

    This post surely isn’t implying that “Kick-Ass” is the best film of the last 9 years?

    Not at all, it's stating that it's my personal favourite. No doubt you'll have your own.

    I was clearly talking about your opinion. Your favourite and the best film (in your opinion, as that is subjective and there is no “best film” so the fact that everything is an opinion doesn’t really need stating at the rate at which you state it) are the same thing.

    So you go from black and white 60’s ‘classics’ to a film about a 13 year old ‘supergirl’ :laugh:

    What a strange man you are. In my opinion.

    90s for me... Shawshank Redemption, Fight Club, Groundhog Day, True Romance, Last of the Mohicans, Pulp Fiction, The Matrix, Goodfellas etc etc
    I haven't seen many films from the 30s or 40s, no favourites.

    50s: 12 Angry Men [57] but Rear Window is also very good.

    60s: The Hustler [61] (there's another great Paul Newman film from this era called 'Hud' that I'd recommend) or Zulu [64], can't choose.

    70s: Les Valseuses [74] - 'Two whimsical, aimless thugs harass and assault women, steal, murder, and alternately charm, fight, or sprint their way out of trouble.'

    EDIT: Actually it's probably Monty Python & the Holy Grail [75], love this scene...



    80s: Platoon [86]

    90s: Fight Club [99]

    00s: Gladiator [00]

    10s: Manchester by the Sea [16]

    This thread basically tells you the age range of posters, as most will pick the decade they grew up in.

    I like this 2010's the most, though.

    Listing films from nearly 100 years ago. :laugh:

    The 80's were good, but the 90's wins it for me. Some absolute legendary films in that decade.
