By God West Virginia!

Oh, God!

this is a total classic
a total '70's classic

this is a good chance for a list...
I guess it would be hard to find 10 movies to define the 70's...

Star Wars is a classic from the 70's
but I am thinking of feature films that work like time capsules to the world I grew up in


1. Oh God (maybe because it started this conversation)
2. Bad News Bears
3. Saturday Night Fever
4. Jaws
5. The Exorcist
6. ET, Poltergeist, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind
7.

off the top of my head I can not get anything else
what other movies not only had major impact of the culture of the times but also reflected the culture of the times?

Fatmarc? I bet you could fill this list pretty quick!

oh... people stopped reading my blog years ago
I keep forgetting
blogs are blah.

"Heaven can Wait", "MASH", "All the President's Men" and "Three Days of the Condor" Maybe these could round out your 70's list

all classics as well...

some of what I was trying to corner is was feature films that would work as quasi documentaries for the era I grew up in

sort of how I grew up thinking that Leave it to Beaver or Dennis the Menace depicted life for families during those eras
