Favorite Movies by Decade

Self-explanatory, or it should be. Follow my queue and have fun widdit.

1920s:
"The Gold Rush," Charlie Chaplin (1925)
Honorable Mention: "The Kid," Charlie Chaplin (1921)
(I'm pretty sure those are the only two 1920s films I've seen thus far )

1930s:
"All Quiet on the Western Front," Lewis Milestone (1930)
HM: "The Wizard of Oz," Victor Fleming (1939), "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington," Frank Capra (1939)

1940s:
"Casablanca," Michael Curtiz (1942)
HM: "The Great Dictator," Charlie Chaplin (1940), "Beauty and the Beast," Jean Cocteau (1946)

1950s:
"Ikiru," Akira Kurosawa (1952)
HM: "The Searchers," John Ford (1956), "Wild Strawberries," Ingmar Bergman (1957)

1960s:
"The Good, the Bad and the Ugly," Sergio Leone (1966)
HM: "2001: A Space Odyssey," Stanley Kubrick (1968), "The Magnificent Seven," John Sturges (1960)

1970s:
"All the President's Men," Alan J. Pakula (1976)
HM: "The Wicker Man," Robin Hardy (1973), "Network," Sidney Lumet (1976)

1980s:
"The Shining," Stanley Kubrick (1980)
HM: "Amadeus," Milos Forman (1984), "Do the Right Thing," Spike Lee (1989)

1990s:
"The Big Lebowski," Joel and Ethan Coen (1998)
"Fargo," Joel and Ethan Coen (1996), "Unforgiven," Clint Eastwood (1992)

2000s:
"Mulholland Dr.," David Lynch (2001)
"There Will Be Blood," Paul Thomas Anderson (2007), "Inglourious Basterds," Quentin Tarantino (2009)


It was soooooo hard to do the honorable mentions for the 1950s; that was easily the best decade for foreign art house and American Westerns, two of my favorite genres. Otherwise fairly smooth if probably imperfect. Thoughts? Your picks?

Excellent pick, my favourite of all time. Your honourable mentions for the 90's are two of my favourites as well. There's no way I'll be able to compile a list that goes back to the 20's but I'll give it a shot when I get home from work.

I like the movies on your list, Brad. It's kind of funny that we have no overlap whatsoever.

I like the vast majority of yours as well (Brazil drives me crazy and I think Chinatown is wildly overrated). I need to see all of your '20s picks; I'm just admittedly not that patient with silent films.

Ha, awesome, dude. The Big Lebowski is my favorite movie ever as well; I've seen it easily 50 times, possibly 75-100. Fargo would fall somewhere in my top 3 as well.

Solid lists, man. Shared #1s for '80s and '60s, rad. I think Pulp Fiction is overrated as hell but most of your shit I can get behind.

You (and Scott, while I'm at it) really need to watch some Akira Kurosawa and Ingmar Bergman films from the '50s though! Seven Samurai, Ikiru, Rashomon, The Seventh Seal, and Wild Strawberries are five of the most influential movies of all time!
