RS: 50 Best Sci-Fi Movies of the 1970s (51 movies items)

"In light of today’s fixation on “dark” superhero tales, Richard Donner’s fidelity to the DC comics plays as positively unfussy and wholesome in retrospect. But like its 21st century brethren, this is no B-movie cheapie — it’s a $55 million, franchise-launching behemoth that employed Oscar winners Marlon Brando and Gene Hackman, as well Godfather scribe Mario Puzo, to make you believe a man could fly. As epitomized by Christopher Reeve’s throwback movie-star charisma, there’s more"
