1980's

I considered 1980 and 1982, but went with 1987, one of my favorite years for genre movies: Raising ArizonaRobocopPredatorEvil Dead 2Angel HeartFull Metal JacketNear DarkThe Princess BrideThe UntouchablesHellraiserWithnail & ILethal WeaponWings of DesirePrince of DarknessMatewan, Babette's FeastBroadcast NewsAmazon Women On the MoonThe Last EmperorThe HiddenEmpire of the SunRadio DaysAu Revoir les EnfantsYeelenThe Monster SquadPrick Up Your EarsIronweed, and Hope & Glory.

1990's

1995 and 1996 were both very good years, but I chose 1999, since it contained more than one movie that I rated a 10/10: Fight ClubMagnoliaThe MatrixThe LimeyThe Green MileThe Sixth SenseAmerican BeautyThe InsiderThree KingsGalaxy QuestThe Wind Will Carry UsThe Talented Mr. RipleyThe Cider House RulesGirl InterruptedSweet and LowdownDead or AliveSleepy HollowBeing John MalkovichBoys Don't CryThe Straight StoryGhost Dog: Way of the SamuraiAuditionAttack the Gas Station!Stir of EchoesDickSummer of SamElectionExistenzRavenous, Toy Story 2American MovieAll About My Mother, and South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut.

Doing a little note about my own picks for these more recent decades...

The 1980s are much stronger in retrospect than people say they are as there are quite a few juicy dramas and comedies awaiting rediscovery. And the biggest standout year for me is 1988, with its vast array of finely wrought films. 

The 90s, interesting decade really even though the first half of the decade is my favorite part of it. Really, 1990, 1991, and 1993 are extraordinary years with many  cinematic riches. I gave this to 1990 when I voted, but 1991 might have just cleared out an edge.

2000s, well, there are two years that really stand out: 2001 and 2007. I went for the latter of the two, although either would have been a fine pick.

Current decade, a bit haphazard, but 2013 takes it for having the highest percentage of films I would care to rewatch. (As well as having my personal favorite film of the decade so far)

2013 is so far the best year for Hollywood cinema. Another reason I like it because in that year I used to watch a lot of films, most of them were worth watching.
