1978 and 1979 were big years for some now modern classics.

Here are the top 10 highest grossing films for those years. Thoughts?

And here are some that weren’t quite as successful at the box office BUT they’re comparable in quality and better than some on the list imho:

Dawn of the Dead
Up In Smoke
Midnight Express
Invasion of the Body Snatchers
The Warriors
Manhattan
The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie

A Movies From '78:

Grease (for what it is, holds up very well)

Animal House (a home run)

Deer Hunter (the best "film" on the '78 list)

A movies from '79:

Alien  (Brilliiant sci-fi)

Apocalypse Now  (Stunning)

Kramer vs Kramer  (Classic Hoffman and Streep?  Nuff said)



Midnight Express and Manhattan are A+ films as well.

My favorite 3 from the list and what I mentioned are Alien, Manhattan, and Animal House. Alien might be my favorite sci-fi flick of all time (though I mainly think it’s horror), Manhattan is one of Woody’s smartest (Annie Hall just tops it), and Animal House is in my top 3 comedies of all time.

Deer Hunter was a very intense movie.

Alien was a very scary movie.

Deer Hunter for the win.   Christopher Walken for the win.

Deer Hunter for the win.   Christopher Walken for the win.

And it DID win! 5 Oscars including Best Picture, Best Director, and Walken for Best Supporting Actor.

DeNiro was so good in those years too.

I am totally flattered Johnny!!  I love this poll idea!!!  I need some time to think about my votes.  As for 1978 they all get an A except Pink Panther!  Was never a fan!

But really?  "Hooper" is one of my all time favorites!!  Every Which Way But Loose and of course Heaven Can Wait!  I have seen all of these in the theater!!!

I remember watching Grease, Kramer vs Kramer, Amityville, Star Trek, and Moonraker in the cinemas. I might’ve gone to seen more but I don’t remember. Everything else except for Heaven Can Wait, I saw on HBO or other not long after their release.

I was 5 or 6 when Grease came out. I knew it was a musical but I thought there were going to be live singers and dancers because of the way the cinema looked. :lol:

Amityville made me scared of the dark until I was 9 or 10!

That is so cool Johnny!  I didn't get to see many R rated movies in the theater because I was 10 years old!  I love "Amityville."  I saw the TV version of "Halloween" when I was a kid and even that version freaked me out!  My parents took me to see JAWS in the dome!  I couldn't sleep for a week and that was PG!

My John Carpenter obsession really kicked in in 1981.  My parents took me to see "Escape From New York!"

I was going to mention "Oh God" with George Burns and John Denver but I was off a year!  1977!  Underrated movie!

My parents took me to see horror IF it was devil-based (Omen, Amityville, etc.). They never took me to see any slasher films...they’re old school Catholics after all. :lol:

For slasher movies or other non-devil horror, I went with the eldest Blaze bro who’s 11 years older than me but looked much older. He used to tell me, “If the theater people ask, just say I’m your uncle” :lol: Saw Friday the 13th in 3D that way, among others. :lol:

Saw Escape from New York with dad & a couple of bros. I remember after the movie he asked us, “Did you like it?” Of course we enthusiastically said “yeah”. He agreed with a “Yeah, I liked it too.” He talked about it in detail too, and dad isn’t too much of a talker actually. Saw First Blood with dad and the same 2 bros the year after.

Come to think of it, I clearly remember watching Aliens and Full Metal Jacket a few years later right after school (and still in my Catholic school uniform) with dad. :lol:

The Blazes have always gone to the movies. :popcorn:

Another movie I loved although in the early 80's was "Poltergeist."  Blew my young mind!


"Friday The 13th" in 3D is underrated!!!

Yup, lucky.

Poltergeist...saw that with both parents & a couple of brothers. I think the dude peeling his face off was the scariest bit. One bro and I still scream this Craig T.

I am totally flattered Johnny!!  I love this poll idea!!!  I need some time to think about my votes.  As for 1978 they all get an A except Pink Panther!  Was never a fan!

But really?  "Hooper" is one of my all time favorites!!  Every Which Way But Loose and of course Heaven Can Wait!  I have seen all of these in the theater!!!

I remember watching Grease, Kramer vs Kramer, Amityville, Star Trek, and Moonraker in the cinemas. I might’ve gone to seen more but I don’t remember. Everything else except for Heaven Can Wait, I saw on HBO or other not long after their release.

I was 5 or 6 when Grease came out. I knew it was a musical but I thought there were going to be live singers and dancers because of the way the cinema looked. :lol:

Amityville made me scared of the dark until I was 9 or 10!

That is so cool Johnny!  I didn't get to see many R rated movies in the theater because I was 10 years old!  I love "Amityville."  I saw the TV version of "Halloween" when I was a kid and even that version freaked me out!  My parents took me to see JAWS in the dome!  I couldn't sleep for a week and that was PG!

My John Carpenter obsession really kicked in in 1981.  My parents took me to see "Escape From New York!"

I was going to mention "Oh God" with George Burns and John Denver but I was off a year!  1977!  Underrated movie!

My parents took me to see horror IF it was devil-based (Omen, Amityville, etc.). They never took me to see any slasher films...they’re old school Catholics after all. :lol:

For slasher movies or other non-devil horror, I went with the eldest Blaze bro who’s 11 years older than me but looked much older. He used to tell me, “If the theater people ask, just say I’m your uncle” :lol: Saw Friday the 13th in 3D that way, among others. :lol:

Saw Escape from New York with dad & a couple of bros. I remember after the movie he asked us, “Did you like it?” Of course we enthusiastically said “yeah”. He agreed with a “Yeah, I liked it too.” He talked about it in detail too, and dad isn’t too much of a talker actually. Saw First Blood with dad and the same 2 bros the year after.

Come to think of it, I clearly remember watching Aliens and Full Metal Jacket a few years later right after school (and still in my Catholic school uniform) with dad. :lol:

The Blazes have always gone to the movies. :popcorn:

:blaze: :blaze: :blaze: :blaze: :blaze: :blaze:

That is awesome!  You had an older brother take you!!!  Lucky!!  I am the oldest in my family!  Hence if I had an older brother or sister perhaps I would have seen RUSH in the late 70's.  Oh well.

Another movie I loved although in the early 80's was "Poltergeist."  Blew my young mind!


"Friday The 13th" in 3D is underrated!!!

Yup, lucky.

Poltergeist...saw that with both parents & a couple of brothers. I think the dude peeling his face off was the scariest bit. One bro and I still scream this Craig T. Nelson line to this day, “YOU SONOFABITCH!!! YOU ONLY MOVED THE HEADSTONES! DIDN’T YA?!! DIDN’T YA?!! WHY?!!! WHY?!!! AHHHH...!!!!” :lol: Or something almost identical to that :lol:

Here, let’s check it :lol:



OMG!  You are too funny dude  I had the "headstones" scene in my head when I typed that last post!  EPIC!

You’d get a kick out of MarkyBlaze & I doing the line. We try to outdo each other...yet neither of us actually do a good rendition of Craig T.Nelson :lol: We just scream louder! :lol: Marky’s 14 year old daughter thinks we’re a couple of nerds...and she’s pretty much spot on :lol:

I guess since it was James Bond people went. Its predecessor, The Spy Who Loved Me, I remember as being good though. For Your Eyes Only which followed Moonraker was also good.

Yeah, those two were awesome!  Better than Moonraker and Live and Let Die, I think.

I liked Live and Let Die too!

Moonraker was almost as crappy as Brosnan’s crappy Bond...although I do remember Goldeneye being decent.

Hahaha!  "Moonraker" is awful and Roger Moore is my man!  The way they made "Jaws" a friendly guy in lust with a girl with braces.  Weird shit man.

Give me "A View To A Kill" any day!!

DURAN DURAN

I LOVE THAT SONG!

"The Spy Who Loved Me" is my other all time favorite Bond film.  I love "For Your Eyes Only" and of course your "OCTOPUSSY!"

The Brosnan Era sucks JB!!!
