Best Films of 1976

This very well may be one of the influences of "Dazed and Confused". It has a similar vibe, setting, and spirited sense of an unknown for future for the characters.
Even if I'm right about the influence it doesn't come anywhere near to the likability of Linklater's 90's classic.

King Kong (1976)
My least favorite of the Kong movies, but still provides entertainment through cheap 70s effects.

Aces High (1976)
The Brits can't intimidate anyone when it comes to fighting. They're just too polite and proper. Luckily these for guys they are hidden in planes.

Steiger does a great Fields. Unfortunately this wasn't well received, perhaps because he was an unlikable figure? The film itself is well made.

The Enforcer (1976)
Perhaps the weakest of the Dirty Harry movies but it still delivers what you want and entertains more than most cop dramas.

Logan's Run (1976)



Director: Michael Anderson
His 24th Movie
My 2nd movie watched from the director.


I can definitely see why this is a cult classic. Thankful I finally get the chance to see it. I reveled in the 70's vision of the future where a society is forced to keep their citizens young... by killing them by a certain age. It was also fun to see some of its influence on the Austin Powers trilogy, which makes Michael York's role in that series even more fun.

The story itself deserves a nice place in the very long list of how filmmakers see what could happen in the future. I enjoyed the Planet of the Apes type reveal for the third act and found the sole character in that world a strange yet interesting choice.

Carrie (1976)
This movie is so long for what actually happens. Could have taken 30 minutes off and it would have been a great movie. Instead it's a decent one and enjoyable in all its classic King strangeness.

A powerful documentary ahead of its time, chronicling the lives of people on strike and a look into the inhumane world of coal mining.
