a list of 67 titles
So far... Have I gone mushy in my old age with a moving tale of lost and found, along with an adorable modern musical and a heartfelt soap drama leading the way, followed by a New Wave music on the streets of Dublin danced by a cheeky photographer and his iconic images with a road movie about a teacher and her pupils who are lucky not to be in the firing line of a sniper attack, while Woody goes Hollywood but comes back to New York as coloured folks have to prove their worth twice, then came a twisted family death but not as absurd as the world one creates in his mind, while the horrors of war can be nightmarish and sometimes comic of the dark nature, leaving us with Hollywood politics and the perfect trashy action yarn as well as the nasty Aussie outback, and no Sci-Fi wars in the top 10!!! In list order.

a list of 90 titles
Shooting in Black & White is a dying art, but there are still some movies out there not afraid to use it and make it look brilliant, or give an Indie film that artistic grunge look. So here is a list of movies from 1970 and beyond that have benefitted from being shot in B&W.
 
a list of 53 titles
Ken Loach view of depressing life; European sensibilities on Carnal Knowledge, and Kubrick goes wild.
 
a list of 68 titles
The start of cinema! I included short films, but not the 1 minute reels, mostly narrative shorts of all kinds. Still haven't seen The Jazz Singer (1927)! And didn't included all the shorts by Chaplin, Keaton and Lloyd or else they would have taken up all the space. In list order...

Tarantino's ultimate masterpiece with the madness of a Royal caught between Kieslowski's final farewell movies while a rebel woman takes on India as Loach once again takes on the establishment not like Oliver Stone who rips apart the establishment, and Russell Crowe comes out, only after the brutal Kiwi low class life and not before the violent French royal orgy of blood.

a list of 100 titles
An attempt to create a sentence of the top eleven films without using the film title! The meaning of the Seventies was nothing compared to the modern war in the Balkans that a peace loving figure could not stop even if they knew how to get down and dirty in the strict rules of Iran where ghettos of a war prison would be more harrowing in a dysfunctional violent family that needed a child with intelligence or even a child that could survive a tragedy in a new World gone scientific mad in an undercover world of gangsters.

A list of movies that defined the Seventies, a decade where risks were taken, independent cinema came alive and box office giants were created. This list of movies is taken from the book, MOVIES OF THE SEVENTIES. There are articles on countries (not just Hollywood), directors, actors and even genres that were popular in that decade. In between there are in-depth reviews of these films. Believe it or not, there were no reviews on Jaws or Star Wars! And what about NASHVILLE, TAXI DRIVER and most importantly, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE?!
 
a list of 7 titles
There was a shift in Sylvester Stallone's career after he had a tea party with the Reagan's in the early eighties. Before that, he was the voice for the common person, the street people & the strugglers. But that all changed after Rocky III and beyond.
