Was just reading about the Karate Kid and the 30 year anniversary so i decided to look up some of the movies from 1984. Amazing collection of cult classics as well as all time great movies came out in 84, here's a short list of the best from that year.

Ghostbusters
The Terminator
Beverly Hills Cop
Sixteen Candles
Revenge of the Nerds.

To name a few.

So, what year has more movies in the top 100 all time than any other year? What's YOUR favorite year for movies and name your top 5 (that you'll stack up against anyone's year) for that year.

Those '84 films were hit movies, but hardly great movies.

What I see as the greatest concentration of high quality movies was '75-'76.

The best picture nominees for '75 included:
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Nashville
Jaws
Dog Day Afternoon

In '76 it was:
Network
Rocky
All The President's Men
Taxi Driver

That makes three of us, 1939 hands down. Could have added a few more good ones from that year to the above list.

The greatest year for movies was NOT 1939. It was 1950:

Sunset Boulevard
All About Eve
Born Yesterday
Young Man With A Horn
No Way Out
Harvey
Father of The Bride

All certifiable classics. And they're probably a few others I couldn't think of.
