    Roughly 1970 for me

    I can't get into black and white movies, and even the color movies from the 60s mostly seem too old timey for me.

    Then when the 70s came, movies started to become more explicit + gritty, and just seem to have aged a lot better.

    No but I naturally gravitate toward movies from late 70s and up.

    I like older shows more than I like older films.

    Interesting, I'm the other way around.

    TV was pretty much antenna only until the 90s, so all of those old shows were subject to FCC censorship.

    Movies had a lot more creative freedom

    hmmm only decades that i cant do are 1940's/50's ..apart from universal horror/monster movies & Hitchcock, i'm obsessed with those.

    1960's is one my favourite decades for cinema.

    For live-action it's the 60's(Psycho, Night Of The Living Dead & 2001:Space Odyessy in particular).

    I don't have a limit for animated films.

    i cant sit through most silent movies, but i do love nosferatu. pretty much anything with sound is fair game to me. i am slightly bothered by 4:3 formats, though.

    Right. Those are counterculture movies so they were edgy for the time.

    I would rather have 4:3 than fake widescreen where they blow it up even though it was never filmed for widescreen

    i absolutely hate cropped or blown up movies and tv shows. i hear disney streaming has done this to all 4:3 simpsons episodes and only plan to offer the original format sometime in the future. that is ridiculous

    Yeah that 's awful. You might be able to change the aspect ratio in the settings, but I'm not sure.

    Pretty much this. Other than that I’ll watch anything. Always important to know film history in order to talk about the present
