I just finally saw Dog Day Afternoon for the first time. Might partly be the immediate post-viewing high talking but this is probably one of the 20 or 30 best films I've ever seen. Just stunning. 

Saw it for the first time a few weeks back and I agree. Riveting stuff

I was driving myself crazy - kept moving things up two or down three places then back again.  Then I realized I did not have to. :slaphead:

I'm not sure when the exact deadline is.  Is it midday sunday October 6?

 

I decided to do this just a few days ago, so I'm trying to cram a few more films at the last minute.

 

Thursday I watched the Long Goodbye (wonderful dialog) for the first time and rewatched The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (a film filed with great New York based character actors).

 

Friday I rewatched Black Friday (fantastic thriller that is only slightly let down by the lack of technology to pull off the ending as well as the rest was.) and a watch of a movie I had seen parts of and that is Breakheart Pass.  I really like Breakheart, but the final act gets bogged down by overly complicated action.

 

This morning I watched the best of the lot: The Outlaw Jose Wales.  This film is a masterpiece!  If anyone had doubted the skills of Clint Eastwood as a director they were certainly silenced after seeing this.

Thank You.

 

I just finished rewatching Chinatown.  Beautiful looking movie and impeccable in all other departments, but yet it just doesn't quiet grab me enough to make my top 100 films of the decade.

Baumer, I was looking at your list back on page 6 and noticed that you have Black Christmas at both 29 & 36, as well as Slap Shot at 48 & 59.  I'm sure you noticed this a while back but I thought I would mention it just in case.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be able to fit any new films in today, so I guess this is going to have to do. Managed to knock Santa Claus and the Ice Cream Bunny off just in time though. There were a few interesting things I noted from marathoning so many 70's films though...

 

-I was not aware that Wicker Man was technically a musical.

-I similarly wasn't expecting to hear some of the soundtrack from Monty Python's Holy Grail turn up in a serious Kung Fu movie (Five Deadly Venoms)

-Maybe it's just me, but I can't help but question what it is with 70's movies and all the rape? Seriously, I swear I hit a patch during my movie marathon where about 4 or 5 movies in a row involved someone being raped. And I never even got around to watching a ton of famous movies that I know famously involve rape like A Clockwork Orange, Deliverance, The Last House on the Left, I Spit on Your Grave and Death Wish. Like with many things from this era, I blame Salo.

-When I decided to start marathoning 70's movies to do this, I had a long list of famous and critically acclaimed moves to watch (including some of the films mentioned above). In typical Ruk fashion, I got through about a third of them, got bored and then spent the rest of my time watching obscure horror/westerns/martial arts movies instead. Because I have poor work ethic when it comes to watching stuff I'm not all that interested in.

 

Okay, now for the list itself.

 

  1. Jaws
  2. Eraserhead
