Prime Cut (1972)
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 345 Average listal rating (244 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.1
Not really an adventure, more like an escape.

People who added this item 139 Average listal rating (65 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.5
Super Fly (1972)
Super fly indeed.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 177 Average listal rating (80 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 6.9
A disappointing adaptation for the classic. I would really like to see an updated version.

People who added this item 15 Average listal rating (11 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6.4
A little wacky, but you can't help but think about the possibilities...
Stehako's rating:
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 163 Average listal rating (119 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.5
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.

People who added this item 128 Average listal rating (75 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6
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 282 Average listal rating (168 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.7
Bruce Dern carries this strange dystopian space film along well enough; but its pacing ruins any chance it had of greatness.
Stehako's rating:
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 581 Average listal rating (359 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.4
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.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 94 Average listal rating (37 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 6.9

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.
