Got this from [livejournal.com profile] dine, Name your favorite movies starting from the year you were born. She did five, I'm gonna do 1970-1980. Since this is me, expect a generous dose of horror movies and campy stuff.

1970 M*A*S*H, Daughters of Darkness

1971 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

1972 Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things-see what happens when you haven't seen the Godfather all the way through?

1973 The Exorcist, Charlotte's Web

1974 Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, Female Trouble, Phantom of the Paradise (I'm on a roll now)

1975 Jaws, The Rocky Horror Picture Show (even though I'm sick of it now), Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Dog Day Afternoon

1976 Alice, Sweet Alice, Carrie, Harlan County, USA*, Taxi Driver

1977 Star Wars

1978 Animal House, Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band-yes, with the Bee Gees and Pete Frampton. So terrible it's a must-see. Also, 1978 is kind of a dry year.

1979 The Muppet Movie, Rock n' Roll High School

1980 The Empire Strikes Back, The Blues Brothers, Caddyshack, The Shining

*Note about Harlan County: I think the way I saw it should get a special mention. I watched it at a house party for the local Socialist Worker's Pary 4th of July celebration. That added something for sure-every now and then one of the party members would see someone on screen and say "oh yeah, I knew her".

There's a lot I still need to see. Some of this stuff I would see on TV when I was young and dismiss it as 'grown-up movies'. A lot of this stuff I saw as a kid or teenager.
