I have no interest in games and F&V is a re-do that doesn't need to be done. But the other 3 are fine. I'm torn between 2, so I'll think on it a spell before voting

I know there were some classic movies from that era, but the 70s was such a hideous decade I can't imagine I could find 25 movies I have even watched (outside of MST3K and riffing) from then.

Star Wars, Jaws, Rocky Horror Picture. And that's just off the top of my head.

During the early 2000's I was going through my classic film phase, and in that time I watched a lot of classic films, especially from the 70's.

The '70s is also very much not my decade, but I just typed "Best movies of the '70s" into google and browsed the carousel. Add in a few animated movies and I think I can scrape together a pretty decent list.

I'm not hosting it, but the 70s?

Heck, looking at Germany's resurgence with Fassbinder, Herzog, Wenders - or the new American masters that hit the scene (Scorsese, Coppola, Ashby, Rafelson, Bogdanovich, Altman, Allen, Malick... oh and that Spielberg guy).  And around the globe there was Saura, Bunuel, Satyajit Ray, Bertolucci, Tarkovsky, Bergman... and Fellini still had some juice.

Pop culture wise you got everything from Bruce Lee to Mel Brooks.

I wouldn't be hard pressed to gather 25, I'd likely be crying over the bunch I'd have to cut.


Edit - just looked at Letterboxd, and I have 26 features and miniseries graded 5-stars from the 70s (and then I looked at those I marked as watched but haven't graded yet, and found a bunch I liked, such as seals... er, I mean Picnic at Hanging Rock and the Godfather, to name 2)

So yeah, if it won I'd be set.

I knew the 70s topic would win the poll the second I saw it posted. I have about 100 possible films I would add to my 25 list, but can't complete a list until I know the following qualifications:

Is it going to be every film that's date begins with 197, which would be 1970-1979. Or the proper decade, which would be from 1971-1980 allowing films from 1980 but disqualifying all films made in 1970?

Do made for television movies count? And if so, are we going to do that thing again where miniseries counts as a movie?

Roger Corman also produced 59 movies in the 70s

I'm going to give a polite no to mini-series but yes to TV movies.  How else will this make it to #1?

I have no interest in games and F&V is a re-do that doesn't need to be done. But the other 3 are fine. I'm torn between 2, so I'll think on it a spell before voting

Wait, fruit and veg has already been done?

Have they introduced many new fruit and veg between that list and now?
FINE

It was LoC #7. And not many new Fruits & Vegetables, but the membership around here has changed drastically in the last 12 years. I think me, Johnny Unusual, and RVR are the only members still active from back then.

I wasn't voting on LOCs back then, but fruits and veggies still holds no interest for me.

@ Johnny - No 70s miniseries? Damn, that means no World on a Wire (a 2-parter, that I've never watched in two nights. It did play theatrically at some point as a single film, but its original showing was on TV over 2 nights). Still, I'd have plenty tp chose from, so no biggie,

@ linzoid - But did Roger Corman make any worthwhile movies in the 70s? Maybe he did, but most of his best IMHO came from the 60s... the Intruder and most especially The Masque of the Red Death. I always kind of wince when I see comments by Mary Jo (in the episode guide) or Mike, etc calling Corman a terrible director. Yeah I know you were on the receiving end of his worst... but give the man a decent budget and 5 week shooting schedule (as he had with Masque) and Corman proved he could put something truly wonderful on the big screen..
