I disagree. I think it was from 1970 to 1989. In the 70s you had The Godfather, then Godfather 2, Jaws, Star Wars, Grease, One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, Superman, Alien, Exorcist, Blazing Saddles, Rocky, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Willie Wonka, Close Encounters and Animal House among others.
Then you get into the '80s with The Shining, Back to the Future, The Goonies, Star Trek: Wrath of Khan, E.T., Die Hard, Scarface, Blade Runner, Full Metal Jacket, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Aliens, Empire Strikes Back, Predator, The Terminator, Ghostbusters, The Little Mermaid, Batman, Airplane and Beetlejuice.
It was a great time to be a movie fan.
