    Worst: 40s

    I would attribute World War 2 to this, in combination with the strict Hayes Code. There were certainly classics from this era, but I think a combination of the War and Hayes Code make this the decade with the least films I love.

    Best: 90s

    I was born in the 90s so I have some bias but I think this is a great decade for film for a number of reasons.

    – As a lover of animation, the Disney Renaissance was in full swing with classics like The Lion King, Mulan, and Beauty and the Beast. Pixar emerged and made two gems with Toy Story and Toy Story 2. And stop-motion found a big presence than ever with The Nightmare Before Christmas

    – Hollywood hadn’t been completely taken over by the need for sequels/reboots/prequels quite yet. So there were lots of great big budget films being made like Titanic, The Matrix, Total Recall, Jurassic Park, Men in Black and Independence Day that really broke new ground in visual effects and blockbuster filmmaking

    – The success of Pulp Fiction definitely put a spotlight on independent filmmaking that decade, and directors like Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, Richard Linklater, and Wes Anderson really started to emerge and thrive this decade

    But depending on my mood I could totally change this answer. The 90s was a terrible decade for the live-action musical and horror films, two genres I love. And there are so many great films in every decade.

    The ‘70s to ‘90s had so many iconic movies, so it’d have to be one of those.

    The 2000s was probably the worst. I honestly probably couldn’t tell you a full dozen films (maybe half that) that I thoroughly enjoyed aside from kids movies that I grew up with. God, and that grey/dark tint that came in a good amount of those movies, specifically horror films, pure hatred.
