The Movies Tom Hanks CNN Series coming in July 2019

This looks good. I always wondered why they never covered movies in the decade series and now we know why.

"The Movies” from exec producers Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman, and Mark Herzog is a 12-hour series companion piece to CNN’s decade-long retrospective series that started in 2014 with “The Sixties” and continued through last year with “The 2000s.”

None of those multi-part series spent much time on the movies of the era, in part because clip licensing is so expensive but producers always planned to follow-up with a movie-focused series.

“Movies” will examine filmdom’s powerful role in shaping pop culture and influencing social norms. The first two-hour installment will cover the 1930s through the ’50s. Subsequent episodes will focus on the decades highlighted in CNN’s earlier series.

The 80s installment of this is going to be a lot of fun.

The 70s is the best decade for movies, to me.

80's is my favorite decade but I hate to say it but the 90's probably had better movies.

The 70's beats all of them when comes to classic masterpieces.

Speaking of film retrospectives, are we ever getting a new AFI list? They did it in 1998 and 2007, so I kind of assumed they would revisit that about every 10 years.

I loved those AFI shows on CBS. It would be great to see a new one.

Did CBS lose the contract for those AFI shows?

The AFI salute where they honor a actor or actress usually airs every year in June.

I was surprised we didn't get one in 2017, since not only was that another decade, but it was AFI's 50th anniversary, although I guess 2019 is the 50th anniversary of the AFI Conservatory, so there's still a chance we'll see something this year.

Will this be American film? Or the whole world?

The Decades series was almost exclusively focused on America. I imagine this will be the same.
