Honorable mention goes to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Didn't even make my top 30 for the decade but I have a very special spot for it, for some reason.



It is good one. If you like Al Pacino, you gonna love the movie. The movie isn't that popular though, it has only 20k votes on IMDb.
I watched that movie today btw, it was alright not the best movie though.



Say hello to my little friend!

Ye I didn't say it was the best, but I would say more than alright a little bit. "You are out of order, the whole trial is out of order"

That was probably the best scene in the whole movie when he throws a big fit at the judge. He did have a point though.



"Both sides wanna win" (sound familiar?)
no what's familiar about it? not sure if your talking within the movie or something familiar to another movie

70s was a great decade for cinema. Serpico gets my mention!
...I still think it's my favorite Pacino performance. But not as a film.

Women will be your undoing, Pépé
thanks for posting that, Camo, and yes, should anyone feel like joining in, that would be great. These HoFs are really great for exploring and talking about films.
For those unfamiliar with them, you pick a favorite movie, we all watch each other's films, do a short write up and talk about them. At the end, everyone makes a list of favorite to least favorite of all the movies and we see which movie comes out at #1.
Though the discussion and the discovering of new movies or revisiting old favorites are the real fun of them.



Movie Forums Squirrel Jumper
Robin and Marian (1976)
Straight Time (1978)
