Re: 2014 Movie Tournament

Some Bergman love:

Donnie Darko vs. Wild Strawberries
The Departed vs. Cries and Whispers

First one was close, second was not.

The MoFo Top 100 of the 1970s: Countdown
Posted By HitchFan97
Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 1970s: Countdown

I had some strange premonition that Jaws would win, but happily it seems I was mistaken. Still, two absolutely amazing films to end the countdown. The '70s really were one hell of a decade.

Better Actor or Director: John Cassavetes

Re: Better Actor or Director: John Cassavetes

Cassavetes is an excellent actor, but as a director he's in a class by himself. (I'm not biased of course; he only happens to be one of my two or three favorite filmmakers ;))

Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 1970s: Countdown

Not really too surprised about the top ten, other than how well Alien did. With Taxi Driver out of the running for #1, I'm rooting for The Godfather, but Jaws is fantastic too.

Well, you know I love that last set. ;) Fanny and Alexander and Taxi Driver - it really doesn't get much better than that.

If Eraserhead was your first and you're still eager for more, then you can't really go wrong. But I'll say Blue Velvet. Or just watch them all in order.

Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 1970s: Countdown

Close Encounters is great, I think it made my list. My second favorite Spielberg, behind the obligatory Jaws :p Monty Python and the Holy Grail is awesome too, but I like Meaning of Life better.

Your top ten is, I think, almost certainly the top ten. Not sure about the order though.

This is heresy. The '60s are second only to the '70s - maybe.

Re: What film will win the 70s countdown?

These things do seem to favor movies that everyone puts on their list rather than top favorites. Does everyone on MoFo think The Shining is the best film of the 80s? No, but clearly a TON of people...

The Godfather, obviously. I don't mind at all, but it would be fun if something pulled an upset.

Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 1970s: Countdown

NETWORK!! My #2. Glad to see it do so well. Such a fantastic film - funny, sad, and eerily prophetic. We have not listened to the lessons it has tried to teach.
