What the title says! It’s been claimed that there were good movies released in the 70s, so I want to catch up on the really good ones that I missed.
Ones that I’ve already seen that are considered Classics, I guess:
The Godfather (1972) - I’m not a fan, but maybe I need to see it again?
The Godfather Part II (1974) - Much more entertaining than the original.
Jaws (1975) - I love this movie, but I haven’t seen it in 2 decades.
The Exorcist (1973) - It didn’t live up to the hype. I hated it. Cheesy, and not scary at all.
Alien (1979) - Excellent movie.
Star Wars (1977) - It’s decent.
Apocalypse Now (1979) - The making of documentary was better than the movie.
The French Connection (1971) - Decent movie, terrible car chase though.
Annie Hall (1977) - Excellent romantic comedy.
Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind (1977) - One of my favorite movies as a kid.
Dog Day Afternoon (1975) - Good movie, lived up to the hype for once, even in 2007.
Grease (1978) - Weird movie, lived up to the hype, even in 1996 because of the nuts ending.
MASH (1970) - Excellent movie, soooo funny. Even better than the TV show I grew up watching, in some ways.
Being There (1979) - Good movie.
Dirty Harry (1971) - Forgettable. I say that because I saw in the 90s, and don’t remember it.
