If you're looking for a Stanley Kubrick movie from the 70's that was really good, I recommend

Hey Johnny just out of curiosity how many lists have you received so far?

Making my list I realized it will be missing some of the big "hits", some I keep meaning to see and others I'm just not interested in, I'll mention them when they come up in the countdown.

Reminder that the deadline is tomorrow.  Mostly.  I'll probably move it to Sunday, but I'd rather you get it in by Friday if possible.

It's way too late to suggest this, but today at work we we're discussing 70s movies and someone brought up how it was a golden age for movie theme music and theme songs. This could have made a good sub list. Here is just a sample of what we came up with:

Movie themes would make an awesome LoC by itself.

You're probably right but I'm not sure who would want to host that list. I mean I'd totally vote for it.

Well, it's too late for voting but there's no reason we can't point some out, especially if the movies win (and afterwards, when we can point out ones that didn't make it).

We did do film scores as a whole ages ago, but not specific themes.

Up to 13!  OK, I'm extending this, officially, to Sunday, but the sooner you can get these in, the better for me!

After doing my research for this list it seems that most popular movies in the 70s are pretty depressing.

Hahaha.  Sorry for laughing but that struck me funny.

If you can't stand the exploitation, get out of the 70s!

Frankly, I don't think it's the "exploitation movies".  A lot of the mainstream movies at the time were responding to America post-Watergate, Vietnam, the post-free love era and America in general so there's a lot of themes of disillusionment and disenfranchisement.

Quick Update: It's past 12 midnight and I've been throwing up all day. I have a list of about 30, but it hasn't been ordered or edited. I'll try to get it done tomorrow.

No worries.  Get well soon and take the time you need.  You have all weekend and usually the actual tabulation time means that there's a window in the few days after the deadline.  We currently have 13 lists and it looks like we'll be getting 15, at the very least!  Looking forward to it!

I am in. That was nearly impossible to pare down and rank.
You know, if the space man puma thing turns out to be the correct religion, I for one will be very surprised.
