The 70's is either the best or second best decade for American film (along with the 40's) - in my opinion -  so I don't think there should be any difficulty finding way too many movies to collapse down in to a list of only 25. I can't wait to hurt my own feelings making this one.
You know, if the space man puma thing turns out to be the correct religion, I for one will be very surprised.

I have the same decades as my two favourites, although the 40s wins for me.
FINE

I go with the 40's as well, but it is really close so I am upselling this list.

Yeah, it's that close for me too.

For anyone that likes a nice visual way to browse and have their memory jogged:

Holy cow, this is one of those lists where if you are struggling, the list should be a real treat for you, pointing you towards some of the greatest cinema of all time.

I am already getting sad at how many of my picks won't make my list, let alone the final one.

It's also leading so some really weird match-ups. Do I like this better than this? How do I compare them? haha.

For me, the top ten are the most important, after that I might do some tweaking and adjusting here and there. For me though whats also important is finishing the list, taking one last look at it and asking myself "Can I live with these choices?" and if the answer is "Yes", then I'm all good.

The 50s, 60s and 20s are my top 3 favorite decades, but the 70s were pretty wonderful too.

I’ve decided to make mine a mix of the Letterboxd 5-star movies, and those that might not have as high a rating, but are special to me - they were movies I watched a lot in the 70s (and beyond). So now I just have to figure out what to cut, and how to order them.

Sadly, I don’t think I’ll be able to make room for Buffalo Rider.
