ermagerd we're back again (backstreet's back, AH'AITE) after a (computing... ...) 8 month hiatus I'm gonna continue this series of threads I started last year in which we attempt to pick out NeoGAF's favourite films of a certain decade, based on weight of mention, and ranking, in everybody's top 5 lists.

(see 'previous threads' at the bottom of this post for examples on how this is meant to play out)


The NeoGAF unofficial top 5 most-liked movies of the 1970s.



1 - (5 points)
2 - (4 points)
3 - (3 points)
4 - (2 points)
5 - (1 point)


Rank your personal favourite flicks of the 1970s, from 1-5. The higher on your list the vote comes, the more votes it will get, as shown above. I will tally up votes at my own discretion when I reckon we've got a critical mass of input/interest has cap'd out.

I'd like you to give your top 4 movies from/made in the 70s - in order. I'll leave the thread for a day or two or something then tally up all the movies and see which one gets the most mentions/tallies. Probably don't wanna leave it too long because, if I'm lucky and i get a bunch of posts, it might be a fair bit of work tallying it all up.

It won't tell us much, i know, it's certainly nothing like the game tournament Karma did last year, but if things go well then it should give us a chance to bond over shared interests and maybe accidentally pick an unexpected result. That's the real objective of this thread.

note: if you wanna revise your list, or if a buddy reminds you of something, feel free to edit your post. Make as many revisions as you want, I'll just take what you're settled on at the time i make my tally.

<note: I tried to take away the BOLD but it's not working for some reason>

Really tough leaving films like Star Wars, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Godfather II and others that I love, but it is what it is.

  4. Monty Python and the Holy Grail

  5. Le Cercle Rouge

Honorable mentions:
  • Barry Lyndon

  • The Godfather part II

  • The Exorcist

  • Young Frankenstein

  • Solaris


If there is only one thing to remember from my comment is go watch "Le cercle Rouge" , it's one of the best crime movie ever made.
There is very little dialog (even if it's in French) and it's a classic heist movie.
It inspired a lot of crime movie thereafter and it's one of the pillars of the "French new wave"

That's a good lead, actually you reminded me to check if "The Wages of Fear" was from the 70s... Hell no lol 50s

70s are weird for me as there are so many iconic movies I just don't care for (Godfather, China Town, Apacolypse Now, Deer Hunter, Star Wars). I do feel pretty bad for snubbing Clockwork Orange, Drunken Master and The Exorcist though.
