Some of my favorite movies of the 70's decade, and this is just a partial list:

(in no particular order)

Five Easy Pieces
The Godfather, Parts 1 and 2
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
Star Wars
Young Frankenstein
Annie Hall
Breaking Away
(the best 70's teen movie)
Heaven Can Wait
Being There
American Graffiti
All The President's Men
Taxi Driver
Paper Moon
Little Big Man

The original Italian movie Swept Away By An Unusual Destiny In The Blue Sea Of August (which is MUCH better than the awful recent remake with Madonna!)
Rocky (just the first one; didn't like the sequels)


Last Tango In Paris
A Clockwork Orange

I liked anything with Steve McQueen (although some of his best work was done in the 60s)and the classic Star Wars and Godfather films.

I guess with any list of best of films everybody is going to have their own opinion, but Steven, come on! Patton as one of the best films of the 1970s? Its a good enough war film but one of the best films of the entire decade!

Does you care to make a case for it?

Posted by Wally World (Member # 562) on :
I would have to go with the underrated horror movie,"Dawn of the Dead."
Posted by Ronbo (Member # 464) on :
Smokey and the Bandit!! The original of course! Sequals were weak. Sherriff Buford T. Justice is classic. I've watched this one more than 80 times. (more than any other)

Aloha Bobby & Rose

Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry

The Exorcist

Posted by moonbaby345 (Member # 1365) on :
The Exorcist
The Posoiden(sp?) Adventure( I think it was 70's)
Posted by Kitkat3232 (Member # 1390) on :
I love the movies from the 70s! Instead of picking an obivious choice like Grease or Jaws I have a few some might be ashamed to admit they love.

Roller Boogie
The Towering Inferno
Freaky Friday
Meatballs (the rest were weak)

#1 Star Wars - no contest

Then, in no particular order:

Rocky, Animal House, Superman, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Young Frankenstein, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind

Of course, the 70's were nothing without these horror flicks:

Jaws, The Exorcist, Halloween, Amityville Horror, The Omen...
Posted by moonbaby345 (Member # 1365) on :
How could I forget Halloween?! [Eek!] That has to be my favorite movie from the 70's.As you can see from my previous post I'm a big horror fan.

Posted by Seven Minutes In Heaven (Member # 1535) on :
Five easy pieces is my favorite film of the seventies.

There are so many more I loved. Easily the best decade for film.
Posted by djcsuperstar (Member # 723) on :
One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest -which is my all time favorite movie of any decade.

Over the Edge -A little known gem, the best teen angst film ever, rotates between my top two and three spots with Ed Wood

Mad Max -The first installment to the greatest film series.

A Clockwork Orange -I had the opening monologue down when I was 12...not long after that, my teachers suggested to my parents that I get professional help.

Dawn of the Dead -yes, you're right (whoever said that) one of the greatest horror films ever.

The Warriors -I dig it.

Rocky -love em' all really.

The Godfather 1 & 2 -these should probably be on everyone's list.

The Longest Yard -I don't even like football...great movie...and hey, it's the 70's, I figured I need at least one Burt Reynolds film on the list.

Right on Dude! I love Phantasm. I don't quite understand some of the hidden meanings, but the movies are still very enjoyable.
