I had heard plenty of bad things about this movie but with such an impressive cast I refused to believe it was bad... and now I can finally agree.

15. Mad Max (1979)
A very low-budget Aussie exploitation film that doesn't really hold up as well as its sequels with better editing and bigger budgets.

11. ...And Justice for All (1979)
Nothing too interesting about this Al Pacino starrer. Not until the final courtroom scene does this movie come out of its shell.

Woody Allen classic

9. Escape from Alcatraz (1979)
Eastwood escapes The Rock, and it's one of the better prison escape movies I've seen

7. Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)
classic performances in this classic example of a movie benefiting from its time.

6. Rocky II (1979)
Solid follow-up to the classic. Nothing profound just fun entertainment

5. Alien (1979)
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 549  Average listal rating (314 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating 8.1 
4. Being There (1979)
A classic that so many movies have mimicked. Forrest Gump being the most successful. I'm assuming Zemeckis had full intentions of naming Gump's maid Louise after the maid, Louise, in the film.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 578  Average listal rating (335 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.7 
3. The Muppet Movie (1979)
Nearly every line is quotable and every scene iconic. Watched it many times growing up.

Stalker and Quadrophenia are pretty good, also.

How is The Jerk better than Apocalypse Now??
Posted: 4 years ago at Sep 1 15:35
If they're ranked in order I would take issue with the postings. I know comedies don't get the respect they deserve, but "The Jerk" at #1? Norma Rae and The China Syndrome are better and like the other post Apocalypse Now!
