Not at all the kind of movie I thought I was getting into. I thought it had something to do with "Bloody Sunday". No shit! Instead it's about an unusual love triangle and there's a scene with little kids smoking pot.

The Cassavettes style doesn't make up for the unlikable characters in this one. And it misses the hysteria and improv like in "Faces" and "Influence". But hey, it's still noteworthy and memorable.

The least entertaining of the MP movies but still quite a bit of good Brit humor

One of Fonda's best roles and Sutherland's most subtle.

Spielberg's first is nothing amazing but it's damn fine work for such a budget and you can see his style in progress.

Bananas (1971)
Woody Allen throws up another creative angle on the comedy. Unfortunately the execution isn't terribly entertaining.

Paddy's great script is put to good use with George C Scott in the lead, giving one of the best monologues of all time.

One of the first Bonds I saw, so it holds a good place; but really it's not one of the better ones. However it does show of early 1970s British style pretty well.

Some very unique and fun dialogue-heavy scenes about yes, carnal knowledge, or lack thereof

Back when Lucas was experimental and creative in maximizing his ability to make art from constraint.

Eastwood at his Eastwood best.
The first of the series is probably still the best.

One of the best-paced action films of the 70's. In fact, it almost defines the 70's action genre.

So yes, this isn't Kubrick quality but it's one of my favorite movies of all time.
