    70s for sure, (though there have been great films from every decade). The problem is narrowing the list down to five!

    The Godfather
    The Godfather, Part II
    Chinatown
    Young Frankenstein
    Phantom Of The Paradise

    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

    Bikini Beach

    Blue Hawaii

    Help

    Thunderball

    There are a bunch of critically acclaimed 60s movies that I love, but I can watch the above five movies repeatedly.

    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)
    Ninotchka (1939)

    Raiders of the Lost Ark
    Ghostbusters
    Superman II
    The Karate Kid

    And a bonus 2000s since no one did them yet...but the 1980s are definitely better than the 2000s:
    Spider-Man 2
    King Kong
    Kill Bill Volume 2
    Casino Royale
    WALL-E

    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

  24. 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 :confused:

    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)
