Have you seen the 10 best movies of the 70s?

Fans of sagas, franchises and great shows, find out if your favorite movie was voted for by AlloCiné viewers who voted for the 10 best feature films of the decade 1970-1979.

We’ve already covered the top 10 movies of all time, but this time, the question is which feature films were the most unanimous among the AlloCiné community. After the decade of the 80s, we are going back to the previous one.

A selection that will make you weep with happiness in front of the winners as the shortlisted entries exude cinephilia and love of cinema. We’re still a little bewildered by the absence of this top 10 for the absolutely seminal film of the decade, given its importance in film history and especially in the American box office: Spielberg’s Jaws .

The Godfather, the unstoppable pinnacle

The main takeaway from this ranking, based on your comments, is that Francis Ford Coppola cannibalizes 3 spots alone. The gold medal has already been awarded and the bronze medal, respectively, was awarded to his absolute masterpiece, The Godfather, with an average score of 4.544. Accordingly, The Godfather, Part 2, takes 3rd place on the podium, averaging 4,466 out of 5.

Almost everything has already been said and said about the first part of this huge saga about the Corleone family, between Marlon Brando, who won an Oscar for the fabulous composition, despite the fact that the studios did not want it and considered it a box office poisoner. Al Pacino, who, in his own words, couldn’t have felt more welcome at the studio, and who considers his role in Coppola’s film the most difficult of his enormous career to date. Or the director breaks down in uncontrollable sobs because Paramount has banned him from reshooting Brando’s funeral scene.

If the film has been at the top of the greatest films in the history of cinema for years, it is not for nothing. For this reason, the American Film Institute ranks it second in the list of the 100 greatest films of American cinema.

We can’t say that The Godfather Part 2 surpasses The Godfather, which simply remains one of the best movies ever made. But without a doubt, The Godfather II is one of the best sequels ever made.

Coppola’s genius is not only to show Michael Corleone descending into hell, alienating and destroying everyone he loves, but above all to show us in Flash Back the youth and rise of his father, Vito Corleone, who he plays powerfully. Robert De Niro, above, won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.
