Underrated 70s

by hollywoodpsychic | created - 09 May 2014 | updated - 7 months ago | Public

An evolving list of 70s films that I feel all deserve more love. Some of these movies make the list for having low average user ratings. Others are here for having very few user ratings. All of these are movies I like. (Though some are certainly better than others!) Here, then, is my list of the best unappreciated, misunderstood and/or unknown 70s films that I particularly enjoyed, films that surely deserve higher ratings and/or a bigger audience.
