    It's funny because while there are a handful of films I love in this decade, overall I've been struggling in this tournament. I love older films, and I love the 80s onward, but the 70s seem to be a gap for me.

    Is it just movies you don't particularly like, or just haven't seen yet?

    Hear me out: Once we are done with all our tournaments, we take all the films that didn't make it into our tournaments and do a Best of the Rest Tournament.

    A lot of movies I haven't seen, but I also have no desire to watch those. I did watch a couple I hadn't seen previously, even one that has been on my list forever, but honestly didn't really care for them.

    The 70's was a unique period of time for films. It was the decade of film that reflected milestones in American culture; things like the Vietnam war (and its impact on American psyche), the civil rights movement, class and race wars, a sexual revolution etc.,

    This is the decade film makers started moving away from the Hollywood mold and started telling tales that were more daring, more pessimistic, bolder.

    I could argue that the 70s is when we truly started to see the medium turn into an art form.

    Interestingly, The Godfather was in 20th place after Round 2. After Round 5 it's in 3rd. Speilberg also has two movies in the top 4 and Friedkin two in the top 16.

    I think I have watched more movies that I had not already seen for this tournament than all of the rest of the tournaments combined. Unfortunately, some were after the movies were eliminated, like Papillon and Network. Watching The Last Picture Show makes me mad that it was eliminated already.

    I also have rewatched several. Alien was on just last night (and was followed by Aliens so I did not get enough sleep.)

    I look at it as the battle of the 1976 Oscars - Jaws, Cuckoo's Nest, Barry Lyndon, Dog Day Afternoon, and Nashville - holy crap what a line up. I watched it and was so disappointed when Jaws lost. At least John Williams won. Now comes the payback!
