77 Reasons I Love the '70s

I love the '70s and so can you. While plenty of my favorite films weren't from this decade, there's just something about the sensibilities in filmmaking from this era that I find consistently electrifying and awesome to behold. These aren't really carefully ranked, as there are so many, but their ordering is some sort of vague approximation of how much I like them.

No idea why Eye Myth is listed as being from 1972 on LB, while it's 1967 everywhere else, but I'm running with it for as long as it remains listed wrong!
