Top Ten Movies of the 1970s

The decade that started two movie giants: Star Wars and The Godfather.

The Top Ten Movies of the 1970s

1 The Godfather

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

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. - jamienicholls

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.

The top 3 would be perfect if it was this, Godfather 2, and then Star Wars.

2 Star Wars

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. - jamienicholls

Star Wars IV:A New Hope started the Star Wars mania all over the world and from that time every Star Wars movie had been expected as a sensation in the cinema - MatrixGuy

Nominated for best picture

Star Wars sucks

3 The Godfather Part II

Better than the first

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

4 Jaws

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

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

Spielberg's suspence shark blockbuster - MatrixGuy

Scariest Shark movie

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

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

8 Alien

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 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. - Beatlesboy9

Incredible movie. Totally changed my life!

10 Monty Python and The Holy Grail

This movie is hilarious! - Ajkloth

The Newcomers

? Sleuth

The Contenders

11 The Exorcist

The greatest horror movie of all time!

12 Rocky

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. - jamienicholls

My favorite Stallone movie and my favorite sports movie - Ajkloth

13 Grease

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

I love this movie!

14 Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory

A timeless classic.

15 Chinatown

Chinatown is an utterly flawless film

16 Halloween

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

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

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

I love superman movies - Ajkloth

18 Dirty Harry
19 Enter the Dragon

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.

20 The Rocky Horror Picture Show
21 Eraserhead
22 Monty Python's Life of Brian
23 Young Frankenstein

It's Pronounced Fronk-En-Steen - BeatlesFan1964
