I really like this era in film, what are ones that you like?

A couple of my favorite films from then are Harold and Maude & Midnight Cowboy

Seventies movies are the best.

Cool Hand Luke and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (I know that they're technically not seventies movies, but they're close enough in style.)

The Omen
Star Wars
Annie Hall
Blazing Saddles
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Nice list but how is The Poseidon Adventure not mentioned? Come on people... Gene Hackman, Shelley Winters, Ernest Borgnine.


Stephen King is writing the sequel to The Shining.

I liked The Wiz, and Soylent Green Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
(It's people)
and yes Star Wars (and the first Star Trek movie), and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (and I don't care if the new movie was more like the book is was crap and I'm not impressed with Johnny Depp or his smarminess) and THX1138.

And more!

But I can't think of them now.

Another vote for Taxi Driver as it is my all time favourite film.

And I'll add Get Carter.

Are you sure this is art, not vandalism?
