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

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.

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

A superb movie about the underworld conflicts and it's influences on average people

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.

Nominated for best picture

Best sci-fi movie ever!

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.

Spielberg's suspence shark blockbuster

This should be number 1 because when the movie came out everyone went to the theaters to see it because of Steven Spielberg

5 Taxi Driver Taxi Driver Product Image
6 Apocalypse Now Apocalypse Now Product Image
7 One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest Product Image

Jack Nicholson made a brilliant job being a "normal" in a mental institution in this great 1975 academy award winning picture

8 Alien Alien Product Image

This is one of my favorite movies ever

One of the best movies ever way better than any of the movies above ⬆

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

This movie is hilarious!

The Contenders

11 The Exorcist The Exorcist Product Image

The greatest horror movie of all time!

12 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.

My favorite Stallone movie and my favorite sports movie

13 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!

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

A timeless classic.

15 Chinatown Chinatown Product Image

Chinatown is an utterly flawless film

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

The first movie of the man of steel in big screen is a memorable one with Christopher Reeve as the man from Krypton

18 Dirty Harry Dirty Harry Product Image
19 Enter the Dragon Enter the Dragon Product Image

This is considered the best kung fu movie of all time that stars legendary Bruce Lee in it. This movie made many cultural impacts in America and changed the way Asians were presented in American movies.
