Temporal Top Ten – 1972


top ten

Number of movies seen from this year – 41
Number of movies reviewed – 34 (including 0 Encore Reviews)

This year is another mix and match for me between recent and old favorites.

In some ways I enjoy my #2 even more than my #1, but the overall experience is what made the ultimate choice for me.

This year’s list is filled with lots of big names with films featuring John Wayne, Jack Lemmon, Burt Reynolds, Alfred Hitchcock, Lawrence Olivier, Woody Allen and Robert Redford (twice) making the list.

Updated 1 Mar 2017 – The Poseidon Adventure is now #6 on this list.  All others have been bumped down
