Favorite/Best by Decade: 1970s

Recommended Posts

Favorite

1970- Nothing. The only movie I've seen from this year is The Aristocats and it's not good enough to get the slot by default.

1971- The Last Picture Show

1972- Aguirre, the Wrath of God

1973- Live and Let Die

1974- Blazing Saddles

1975- Monty Python and the Holy Grail

1976- Allegro Non Troppo

1977- The Spy Who Loved Me

1978- Superman

1979- Life of Brian

Best

1970- See Favorites.

1971- The Last Picture Show

1972- The Godfather, Part 1

1973- Live and Let Die

1974- The Godfather, Part 2

1975- Monty Python and the Holy Grail One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

1976- Network

1977- Star Wars

1978- Superman

1979- Life of Brian

My favorite of the decade is either Superman or one of the two Python films. Or maybe The Last Picture Show. The best, however, is The Godfather, Part 1.

1979-Nosferatu

Best

1970-Gimme Shelter

1971-French Connection

1972-Aguirre, The Wrath of God

1973-The Wicker Man

1974-F for Fake

1975-Jaws

1976-Network

1977-Eraserhead

1978-Halloween

1979-Apocalypse Now

This was the absolute hardest to do so far, and I'm pretty sure it will be the hardest I do in this series. I could make a second and third list of completely different films for this decade and none of theSuperman, Star Wars or Bond films would be on any of them.

But, you could almost cull my favorite top 10 films of all time from these two lists alone.

1974 is a really tough year. Chinatown, The Conversation, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, Death Wish etc.

There's like four really tough years for me in this decade. Even the regular years are tougher than usual tough years in this game. This is my decade.

I forgot all about Blazing Saddles. The fact that Brooks and Wilder did something so momentous and intensely hilariously stylish as Young Frankenstein, but also release another of one of the greatest comedies of all time that was also a period piece in the same year blows my fucking mind.

There's also Francis Ford Coppola releasing Godfather Part II and The Conversation in the same year as well, which is similarly impressive especially when you take into account that Part II is basically two films.
