    So I have eclectic tastes? (And opinions). :shrug

    Can't comment on your own preferences because of course you haven't posted them. :duke

    Best decade overall was probably the 90's for me.

    Favourite by decade.

    50's - 12 Angry Men
    60's - For a Few Dollars More
    70's - One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
    80's - The Breakfast Club
    90's - Pulp Fiction
    00's - The Lord of the Rings trilogy. If I can only choose one then I pick The Fellowship of the Ring
    10's - The Intouchables or Whiplash.

    60's - Cool Hand Luke
    70's - The Godfather I & II (honourable mention to The Sting mainly for the ending)
    80's - The Thing (Raiders of the Lost Ark is close to perfect though)
    90's - Goodfellas
    00's - Gladiator
    10's - The Fighter (or True Grit)

    come on

    easy answer- the 80s (the decade I was born in). some classic in the late 70s and early 90s but the 80s is it for me

    I prefer older movies anyway but I couldn't hazard an opinion on the best decade for movies.

    Some of my faves:

    30's - Fury
    40's - The Killers (hence my username)
    50's - Separate Tables
    60's - The Apartment
    70's - Jaws
    80's - Raiders of the Lost Ark
    90's - L.A. Confidential.

    I agree massively, it's hugely unrealistic and the plot is stupid because of it. It's not even unrealistic in a fun way either, it's just dumb.

    I think one thing we're all in agreement with. Cinema has declined massively since the turn of the century.

    For me film, like society in general, peaked in the 90s.

    In 1995 the nominees for best picture at the Oscars included Forrest Gump (winner), Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption. You're lucky to get a film in that echelon within four years now. Too much focus on franchises and superhero shite. Twelve superhero films were released to the cinema in 2018, that's one every month.

    I despise all these shitty super hero movies.

    They're the kind of thing that are ok bringing one out every few years like Superman, Batman did...but now its just ridiculous. You throw Kodi on and look for a recent film to watch and its lists of super hero crap and not much else.

    Music too.

    Two or three a year, big budgets and memorable films. I don't get how people differentiate between them when there's one a month. Even the buddy cop craze and the teen dystopias didn't go this mental. It's having an impact on cinema. I used to go the cinema all the time, one of my favourite things to do. I feel like I'm scraping ther barrel to find an excuse to go these days, and I'm often disappointed.

    Yep, over the last few years I've mainly ditched Hollywood films for Indie or World Cinema, as they make the most interesting stuff now. I'd rather watch some Iranian domestic drama, than thon CGI-laden Marvel drivel.

    The problem is the cinema. I want to go but there isn't enough on for me to do so. I sunk so low I gave that new Predator a shot, which I really regret. Another problem is certain cinemas won't bother showing certain films. The 2015 Macbeth wasn't shown in cinemas where I live and I wanted to see it.

    Great point on MacBeth. My mum did manage to see it on the big screen in Dundee as she loves Fassbender, but not enough more interesting stuff is on at the big chains. In Dundee we have the DCA as well which shows a lot more independent cinema which is great; but the big chains should put on more NT Live! or RSC stuff more regularly as there is demand for that. Outside of that I rarely go to the cinema now, the last two films I saw were Bladerunner 2049 and The Last Jedi; I even missed out watching Solo - and I never do that for Star Wars - as it felt like a money-grabber pure and simple (still have to see it actually). On top of that, cinema's are so expensive now; apparently there is a new one opening in London where its £40 a ticket! Then your about a tenner just for bloody popcorn! No thanks.
