Hollywood has been a big thing in all of our lives for over a century now. What started as a bunch of silent movies has turned into big-budget blockbusters filled with CGI and all sorts of expensive special effects. 

Although some would say that some of the big budgets ruined movies as we know it, why bother having a great script and great acting if you can just spend tens of millions of dollars to make things look super cool?

What about you? We think that your taste in music is a pretty good indication of what decade you were meant to belong to. Are the kind of person that is all about movies like "Titanic," "The Silence of the Lambs" and "Pulp Fiction"? If so, the '90s are probably where you belong. 

Or are you into classics like "Jaws," "Grease" and "The Exorcist"?  Then maybe you out to break out your bellbottoms, feather your hair, and live life like it was the '70s all over again. Or who knows, maybe you would be more comfortable in the '40s, the days of "Citizen Kane" and "Casablanca," or it just might be possible that you belong right where you are, living in the present where movies are full of cutting-edge technology and excess.  Take this quiz, and we will let you know what decade you belong it, based on your movie preferences.
