The 80's might not be the best decade for movies but it was when movies became less dramatic and slow. The industry finally "let its hair down", sort of speak, an started having more fun in all genres.

9 2010s

There use to be a time when I watched 2-3 movies per month, now I might watch 2-3 per year. The previews to the movies aren't that exciting and that's showing the best scenes of a movie. I know that all the good ideas have been taken but some of these film companies don't seem to not try anymore. They are just looking to make a quick buck.

Some films made this decade so far have been really great. But some were just crap. - PositronWildhawk

This decade is so good. But this is where people start making random movies and they get a low score. But some are great. In modern films. They thing to make a movie great

The only thing original anymore is the horror genre. It use to be nothing but repeats but not now. Comedies are weak and filthy, not that funny. Action and sci-fi are mostly reboots and sequels. Why can't anybody come up with anything new.

10 1920s

Watch "The Roaring Twenties" and you will change your mind. The 1920s pretty much started the movie industry, so you should really thank them.

The General, The Gold Rush, Metropolis. - AJG1314
