Top Ten Movies of the 1970s

The decade that started two movie giants: Star Wars and The Godfather.
The Top Ten
1 The Godfather The Godfather Product Image

Never was big on mob movies. The way they talk and express themselves through facial or hand gestures, drove me nuts at times. Also, they are too slow for my taste. I'll take Star Wars any day of the week

One of the most critically acclaimed films of all time, The Godfather is often known to many as the best Crime film of all time. Godfather certainly packs a punch.

Easily #1 because it's the best of all time. When I'm adult I should watch the 3 best movies of all time Godfather, Citizen Kane, and Pulp Fiction and criticize them.

This is the best movie of all time. A mediocre cheesy kids movie is above this classic?

2 Star Wars Star Wars Product Image

At the time of it's release, Star Wars was the highest-Grossing film of all time, by quite a large margin. Star Wars changed films forever and remains to this day a very influential film.

How dare they say the godfather is better than Star Wars. it just isn't.

It was the highest grossing movie of its time, became extremely iconic very fast, was nominated for best picture, and won 6 oscars for a reason

3 The Godfather Part II The Godfather Part II Product Image

Star Wars is over this crime epic. What the hell? I don't evenlike Star Wars. Star Wars is so overrated.

2 Icons in 1 Movie.How that Movie cannot be legendary with two Greatest Legend Al Pacino and Robert De Niro

Better than the first

4 Jaws Jaws Product Image

Afraid of Sharks? well it's probably this movies fault. BUT I wasn't alive when this came out (if your reading this in 2018) and I saw it last year when I was a only 11. And let me tell you I LOVE the music. The menising theme was composed and conducted by John Williams

Good movie even though I haven't been in the water since I saw this movie.

6 Apocalypse Now Apocalypse Now Product Image
7 Alien Alien Product Image
8 One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest Product Image
9 A Clockwork Orange A Clockwork Orange Product Image

A muddled mess of a movie, not a good adaptation of the book at all.

This one sucks, so many naked people everywhere.

This movie is incomparable. Nothing beats it.

Incredible movie. Totally changed my life!

10 The Exorcist The Exorcist Product Image

The greatest horror movie of all time!

The Contenders
11 Monty Python and The Holy Grail Monty Python and The Holy Grail Product Image

This movie is hilarious!

12 Grease Grease Product Image

John Travolta was so cute in this movie. I wish I could travel back in time to the 1970s and marry him.

I fell deeply in love with Kenickie when I watched it. I love Grease! Best teen musical!

I love this movie!

13 Rocky Rocky Product Image

The film that arguably got Sylvester Stallone where he is today. The Rocky series has had five sequels which have all featured a foe that Rocky Balboa has to fight in the end.

14 Chinatown Chinatown Product Image
15 Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory Product Image

A timeless classic.

16 Halloween Halloween Product Image

This was one of the first low budget movies to make a ton of money and influence the horror genre for decades to come. It's still super popular 40 plus years later because it was an original concept.

17 Superman Superman Product Image

To me these ARE the Superman movies. I hate the new ones!

I love superman movies

18 The Deer Hunter The Deer Hunter Product Image
19 Dirty Harry Dirty Harry Product Image
