23. The Poseidon Adventure (1972)
Not really an adventure, more like an escape.

Super fly indeed.

21. Slaughterhouse-Five (1972)
A disappointing adaptation for the classic. I would really like to see an updated version.

20. Chariots of the Gods (1970)
A little wacky, but you can't help but think about the possibilities...

People who added this item 747  Average listal rating (449 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 6.8 
19. Everything You Always Wanted to Know About S... (1972)
A series of comedic vignettes that hit and miss but Allen's alternative viewpoint on sex continues to entertain overall.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 131  Average listal rating (98 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.5 
18. Joe Kidd (1972)
Not one of Eastwood's best westerns but he still manages to make another memorable character and we plays well against Duvall.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 104  Average listal rating (62 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.1 
14. Boxcar Bertha (1972)
Scorsese had yet come into his own and was clearly a for-hire directing gig. Of course, it's still good and entertaining for the most part, especially the robbing sequences.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 237  Average listal rating (143 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 6.7 
13. Silent Running (1972)
Bruce Dern carries this strange dystopian space film along well enough; but its pacing ruins any chance it had of greatness.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 69  Average listal rating (33 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.6 
12. The King of Marvin Gardens (1972)
Nicholson was the king of the 70s and this is another great example of that. As good as he is, along with Burstyn and Dern, the surprise ending is what makes this film even more memorable.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 513  Average listal rating (334 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating 7.5 
11. Frenzy (1972)
Hitchcok's final notable film is not a classic but its respectable and sadly proof that his game is no longer the only one in town.

10. The Heartbreak Kid (1972)
Stehako's rating:

9. Deliverance (1972)
My dad introduced me to this movie when I was 12, the day before we were to go rafting of the Chatooga, the same river that's featured in movie. What a good dad.
