For a long time the internet has been a wonderful place for an argument, so let’s start another one!

Richard is here to host and referee an actually surprisingly civilised debate to determine what is, definitively, the best decade for movies. Amanda, Rob, Howard and James all have their thoughts, and between them all only one decade can be crowned the best, listen to find out! And if you disagree with their final choice, take a vote at the bottom of the page!
