1970s Oscars!

Hello all!

We have finished yet another decade.  I went into the 1970s expecting to have to sit through mostly over the top artsy movies and gritty Vietnam war dramas.  Fortunately, we also got some of the best comedies and musicals of all time.  I do have to admit I am a bit trepidatious about the 80s.  Although I guess I should be more scared to start the 80s on my album blog.  Here are my top and bottom picks of the 1970s.  This isn't scientific and totally subjective but feel free to argue with me in the comments section!

  1. I would have said worst movie was A Clockwork Orange but I haven't viewed your choice--the title gives me an indication. I actually liked the line from Annie Hall better than the one from Grease, but hey, that's just me.
