    I decided on my rest days that I would watch a film from each decade from the 1940s-2010s. What would you curate for your list? Here's mine...

    40s - His Girl Friday
    50s - The Night of The Hunter
    60s - Point Blank
    70s - Network
    80s - Fright Night
    90s - As Good As It Gets
    00s - Traffic
    10s - Nebraska

    Well, if this is the list of what movie from each decade I'll watch next it will be these. As opposed to my FAVORITE movie from each decade which I'll put in brackets afterward.

    40's - The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (Casablanca-also my favorite movie of all time)
    50's - Stalag 17 (Rebel Without A Cause)
    60's - Dr. Strangelove (Cool Hand Luke)
    70's - A Bridge Too Far (Taxi Driver/A Clockwork Orange)
    80's - Blue Velvet (Back To The Future)
    90's - Starship Troopers (The Matrix/Goodfellas/Pulp Fiction)
    00's - Little Miss Sunshine (Donnie Darko)
    10's - Django Unchained (Django Unchained)

    It's quality, not quantity I'm looking for. And @BigOleDummy's contribution makes me a rich man.

    Why is that As Good As It Gets so highly rated? It's really not that good.

    I would probably take part in this but I can't think of any movies from before the 1980s that are worthy of mention.

    Bigoledummy had the advantage here because he was alive in all those decades.

    A quick list which I'm sure I will think of stuff I like more, but this is my first reaction and it was hard to think of anything good in the 00's and 10's

    40s - Angels with Dirty Faces - ok I know this is actually 1938 so if nit this then ' the Maltese Falcon'
    50s - Ice Cold in Alex
    60s - School for Scoundrels 'Terry Thomas'
    70s - The Outlaw Josey Whales
    80s - Uncle Buck
    90s - Goodfellas
    00s - 13 Days
    10s - Dunkirk
