Say hello to my little friend - movies that keep you on the edge of your seat. These aren’t just your Italian mobsters. The Coen brothers’ “Fargo” shows that even sweet Minnesotans are capable of a fantastic heist. Or not.
'The Godfather', 'Apocalypse Now', 'The Last Picture Show' - has cinema reached these heights since? Make up your own mind, but only after you check out this collection of films nominated for the Oscars best-picture award during the 1970s.
'Hoosiers','Mississippi Burning', 'The French Connection' - the list of Hackman's fantastic performances stretches on. Still, for our money, he was nowhere more entertaining than when attempting to outwit Superman as Lex Luthor
A list of great vintage action flicks from before the year 1980 (when everything got all cheesy anyway) that prove you don't need fancy CGI to provide ass-kicking thrills. Watch Eastwood, Lee, Douglas, and Connery do their thing!
With 'The Long Goodbye', 'Chinatown', and 'The French Connection', it could well be argued that Neo-Noir peaked in the 1970s; get your weekly quota of grit with this collection of the decade's greatest hits.
Think 'Days of Heaven' and 'One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest' with this collection of the greatest dramatic pictures to have come out of the 1970s. Also make sure to check out our 'Oscar Best Picture Nominees 70s' list, for the critics' distillation of the decade.
Only the very best thrillers from the 1970s have made it on to this collection, including Jack Nicholson's neo-noir masterpice 'Chinatown' and Robert De Niro's dark psychological character-study 'Taxi Driver'!
