Re: Best & Worse Movies of the 70's

I forget bad movies, mostly. As far as best, the asterisked ones have already been mentioned:

Code:
*1973 American Graffiti
*1975 All the President's Men
 1975 The Return of the Pink Panther [1]
 1975 The Rocky Horror Picture Show
*1975 Monty Python's The Holy Grail [2]
*1976 Jaws
 1976 Rocky
*1977 Star Wars [3]
 1977 The Spy Who Loved Me [4]
*1978 Animal House
*1979 Alien
*1979 Apocalypse Now
*1979 Monty Python's The Life of Brian [5]
Depending on how you count your decades :

Code:
  1980 The Empire Strikes Back
  1980 Airplane [2]
[1] A Shot in the Dark is the very best and the first one is good but this one also works for me for some reason - I don't much like the others.

[2] One of the three or four funniest movies ever.

[3] Best movie ever.

[4] Above average Moore Bond flick.

[5] No Grail, but still great.

The Pink Panther Strikes Again (76) was for me, one of best of the Peter Sellers movies.
