As these threads are staying open, is it time for the 60s thread to start?

There's also something very wrong if Coppola doesn't have the highest total score for this decade.

Sorry guys, I'll start the '60s thread pretty soon and compile the final list as quick as I can.

I'm not sure I've even seen 15 movies from the 1960s.

Same here.

I had a hard enough time with the '70s list, but the '60s flicks I've seen are worthwhile:

Psycho
To Kill a Mockingbird
2001: A Space Odyssey
Lawrence of Arabia
Dr. Strangelove
A Hard Day's Night
The Time Machine

then there was The Birds...

Oh come on LMP, surely you've seen more 60s films than that!

Sean Connery's Bond films
The Magnificent Seven
The Great Escape
The Odd Couple
Breakfast at Tiffanies
Sergio Leone's Dollars Trilogy
Once Upon a Time in the West

Some of these aren't the best of the decade but they're all very well known and definitely worth watching.

Forgot about the Connery Bond flicks, I've seen those, but that's it. It's pathetic, I know, but that's why I love NetFlix.

Well I'm not letting this list go to waste:

Best of the 1960s
1. Lawrence of Arabia
2. Once Upon a Time in the West
3. The Battle of Algiers
4. Persona
5. Dr Strangelove
6. The Apartment
7. Kes
8. To Kill a Mockingbird
9. Pyscho
10. Hud
11. Rosemary's Baby
12. The Graduate
13. High and Low
14. Jules et Jim
15. 8 1/2

And there were so many I had to leave out:
The Magnificent Seven, Cape Fear, Charade, The Manchurian Candidate, Bonnie and Clyde, Blowup, In the Heat of the Night, Breathless, Inherit the Wind, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance and The Wild Bunch.

Again I'm limiting myself to just one film per director, which explains the exclusion of films such as 2001 or For a Few Dollars More. Shame, but it allows for a more varied list.
