Most of the 2000s seem pretty bad to me.

I agree. However...
I really enjoyed TRON: Legacy (2010) and The Expendables (2010) I can't wait for pt.2. JCVD!

Honestly anybody who says as bold a statement as any decade sucked for movies is coming from a place of ignorance. Overlook your bias that the past was always better for movies (which is hardly true imo there were always crappy mainstream movies its just that in retrospect we only remember the classics. The 90s was a step forward for cinema as were the 00's. Look beyond the mindless blockbusters that always are there and you will find true art in any single year of cinema let alone a decades worth.

Point made Rev.. Every decade does have some great stuff (although honestly I've only seen 5 from your list yet although I liked all 5 of those). I also did like a lot of the Pixar stuff (Incredibles, Wall-E, Monsters vs. Aliens) and the Wallace & Gromit film. Just I think as fulci suggested one just gets blinded by all the mainstream CGI heavy crap Hollywood tries to push on us.

Back when I was doing the "Best of" series at Scifilm.org where we voted on the best fantastic (fantasy, sci-fi, horror) films for each year, 1952 did seem a particularly lackluster year as did 1938.

I'm definately a decade snob. I'm all for the 70s and 80s as I've stated many times. Off the top of my head, hmmm....'87-'89 blew because it was the demise of good slashers.

1949-
Besides WHITE HEAT and a couple of war movies-not much going on here-totally devoid of horror films-sci-fi was non existant-
MIGHTY JOE YOUNG-but that was KING KONG without bite....

I mean-even the Abbot and Costello series of films went down hill.

     1984- lots of dreadful, 3-D sci-fi drive-in fodder.


Seriously? I'll take 1984 over anything released since the mid-90's.

Isn't this list awesome or what?

Amazing list. I would applaud if I could

The 90s did give us:

12 Monkeys
Dark City
Gattaca
Contact
Cube
L.A. Confidential
Being John Malkovich
The Truman Show
Man on the Moon
Ed Wood
Jurassic Park
Terminator 2
Pi
Starship Troopers
Event Horizon
The Iron Giant
City of Lost Children
Ringu

Doesn't seem so bad a decade to me honestly. When we get to the 2000s era though, I have trouble thinking of stuff that isn't superhero or CGI animation related.
I did like Ed Wood,Jurassic Park,Terminator 2 and The Iron Giant. Smile

cant think of one good movie   Lookingup


seriously though, to discount the 90s would be madness...

GOODFELLAS
PULP FICTION
CASINO
DAZED & CONFUSED
FARGO
BIG LEBOWSKI
USUAL SUSPECTS

all those would fight for a place in my Top 10 Movies of all time, and that's just a list off the top of my head...probably forgetting some others

The late 80s and 90s when we witnessed the demise of good quality slasher and action movies Hard Target is about the only good action to come out of the 90s and of course the 2,000s with a few exceptions it was basically remakes and CGI ladden rubbish.
