The Greatest 1970s Movies

This is a list of the best movies of the 70's. We've included all of the top films from the 1970's, but if your favorite 70s film isn't on the list, please feel free to add it to the list of the best 70s films yourself. The 1970's were a great era for filmmaking, with a dark and dirty New York City for storytellers to play in. Practical special effects were reaching their peak, and artistic styles were unrestrained. Remember, this is the decade that brought us Rocky, Jaws, and even Star Wars. The death throes of the Hays Code were finally over and Hollywood was free to enter a new Golden Age, as you'll see when perusing this list of the best Seventies films.
