Best Movies of Each Decade

movieMovies have been an integral part of our society for decades.  However, we sometimes fail to recognize the fact that some movies are better than others.  Movies should be about more than just providing two hours of entertainment.  They should be about creating and sharing art.

Sadly, some of the more recent films we’ve been subjected to fail to create art.  Ironically, some of the older productions – with less access to technological resources – are still some of the best.

Let’s take a look at some of the best movies created in seven of the past decades.  While there might be a few other films that could be added to this list, absolutely none of these should be removed!  If you have a suggestion for a movie that isn’t listed here, let us know in the comment section below.
