The 1940s. Golden Age of Hollywood, Bogart and Bacall, Casablanca, Film Noir, Cagney and thegangster genre,Citizen Kane all of that. Wizard of Oz referencing WW2. Plus for the hipsters, Renoir in French cinema and Rossellini in Italian cinema.
Been watching the Movies series on Sky got me thinking - what's your favourite decade for movies.
I'd probably go with the seventies. Godfather 1 and 2, Jaws, Star Wars, Alien, cuckoo's Nest...
Add Serpico & A Bridge Too Far to the 70s.
I think it probably comes down to actor preference, the 60s Steve McQueen, Paul Newman etc, 70s De Niro & Pacino etc.
Iíd not make a case for the 80s being the best decade but itís in with a shout of being my favourite. I like all the John Hughes type of comedies. Planes Tranes & Automobiles, Ferris Buellers Day Off, Uncle Buck, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels etc
Back to the future, ET, Die hard, rambo, ghostbusters, nightmare on elm st, naked gun, Ferris bueler, 48 hours, Beverley hills cop, spinal tap, batman, top gun, big, robocop, karate kid, goonies, airplane, predator, trading places, gremlins, untouchables, Roger rabbit, Bill and ted, scarface, lethal weapon, blues brothers.
