Temporal Top Ten – 1974


top ten

Number of movies seen from this year – 37
Number of movies reviewed – 23 (including 1 Encore Review)

This was the year I was born, so obviously I never had the pleasure to see any of these films on the big screen.
For me, choosing #1 was a no-brainer despite everyone loving my #2
What’s interesting to me with this list is that only one film (#9) is a new and recent watch by me.
The rest are mostly movies I learned to appreciate and enjoy over time, but my #1 and my #7 both get credit for being movies that my older brother and his friends introduced me to on a rainy Saturday Night during the 1980’s.sugarland

  1. Yay for Autobiography and Inferno, but really, no Young Frankenstein? I suppose I should see Blazing Saddles to compare, but that’s my favorite Mel Brooks movie.
