    I would say mine is probably the 70s.

    Just to name a few:

    The Godfather
    One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest
    Apocalypse Now
    Taxi Driver
    The Deer Hunter
    Blazing Saddles
    Dirty Harry
    All President's Men

    Every decade except the 1950s. The 50s sucked.

    I was kidding. EVERY decade is awesome for movies. It might be better/easier/more thought-provoking to go for a year. Like this fella did with 1999 in his newly published book.

    I dunno. The 1910s were pretty weak.

    Fine. The 1910s had Chaplin and the KKK movie. But that's about it.

    Crazy how many genre-defining (or starting) films in that decade.

    Keystone Cops.

    When my oldest was around 10 or so, I showed him a couple Keystone Cops films. He was cracking up.

    1880s were pretty weak for films. A couple of women walking around chairs were nominated for Best Actress.
