Me too. Best way to see it.
HIGH AND LOW
It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World
The Odd Couple
A Shot in the Dark
The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming
70s for sure, (though there have been great films from every decade). The problem is narrowing the list down to five!
The Godfather, Part II
Phantom Of The Paradise
Tough one, but I'll do one of each.
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Pretty In Pink
The Breakfast Club
A League Of Their Own
The Truman Show
The Little Rascals
Sixties for me for just about any art form- music, TV, movies, architecture, design, etc.
The problem for me is narrowing the choices. While I love the classics and good drama, I am really a sucker for mindless comedies and fun films. so...
It's a Mad. Mad. Mad, Mad World
There are a bunch of critically acclaimed 60s movies that I love, but I can watch the above five movies repeatedly.
Leon: The Professional
Eyes Wide Shut
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
" How could you forget about the wasp? "
80s: The Terminator
Three Days Of The Condor
The French Connection
High Plains Drifter
Oops. These threads seem to rattle me. I'm going to have to drop one of those because MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIE came out in the 70s: The Sting. Doh!
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
As a lifelong film buff, I don't think I have an absolute favorite decade for movies since I have so many favorites from every decade.
I'll go with five random favorites from the 1930s:
Duck Soup (1933)
A Tale of Two Cities (1935)
Night Must Fall (1937)
Merrily We Live (1938)
The Empire Strikes Back
Raiders of the Lost Ark
The Karate Kid
And a bonus 2000s since no one did them yet...but the 1980s are definitely better than the 2000s:
Kill Bill Volume 2
Invasion Of The Body Snatchers
good lists. Yeah overall I think 90's was the best. I mean it had Speed, Boogie Nights, Philadelphia, and Office Space, action, drama, comedy.. and all good. Not to mention big movies like Titanic and the second Terminator
The Princess Diaries
Siskel and Ebert covered the Napoleon rerelease on their show:
Heaven’s Gate, Modern Romance, Napoleon (1927), Excalibur, Nighthawks, 1981 – Siskel and Ebert Movie Reviews
Gotta be the 70's:
As much as I love the 1980s I think the silent era is my go to these days..
Children of Divorce
The exorcist has to go in there somewhere.
I can stay away from sharks
but the devil can walk on land.
The 1940s (I can't possibly list all my favorites from the '40's)
They Live By Night
Odd Man Out
Out Of The Past
The Grapes Of Wrath
A Tree Grows In Brooklyn
Just five, impossible to list all my favorites. Best decade for movies for me, by far.
1940's... Even with WWII going on, so many great movies were made.
Just "listing" five, but where do I start with all the Abbott & Costello films of the 40's
The Best Years of Our Lives (1946)
Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942)
It's A Wonderful Life (1946)
Citizen Kane (1941)
The Grapes of Wrath (1940)
