DancingClown -> Greatest films from the year you were born. (14/7/2012 9:00:26 PM)

Inspired by Lucky's similar thread in Audiophile what were the biggest - or your most favourite - films released in the year of your birth? Not the deepest of threads, I know, but...

I could lie and say it's a toss-up between Annie Hall and Eraserhead but who am I kidding - Star Wars all the way.
Or Close Encounters..




Lucky Day -> RE: Greatest films from the year you were born. (14/7/2012 10:37:34 PM)

Quality thread [:)]

1979 was a good year. Alien, Apocalypse Now, The Warriors, Mad Max, The Muppet Movie & The Jerk all in with a shout.

But this genius takes it .......

The year I was born was quite shit. Apart from the four I listed above I can think of maybe two or three more I like but nowt in the way of masterpieces. Mind, it was the seventies - virtually everything was shit.

He's not going to have much of a running career now they've amputated his left leg and set fire to it.

Off the top of my head my favourite from 1987 is Lethal Weapon, but I'll look into it more later.
