1978

top ten

Number of movies seen from this year – 56
Number of movies reviewed – 41 (including 1 Encore Review)

My #1 thru #5 this year are all somehow related to the effects of some kind of war and each are very compelling movies to watch.

#6 is an iconic John Landis film that changed the face of screwball comedies forever

#7 is the genesis of all superhero movies

#8 is a great medical thriller

#9 is the first film by future Directing Star – Oliver Stone

#10 – is a great romance film

Update 2 Jan 2017 – An Unmarried Woman made my #7 spot pushing all others down one slot

Update 11 Jul 2017 – The Silent Partner has now been added to the list moving all subsequent entries down accordingly.

Update 3 Feb 2019 – Same Time Next Year has been added to the list at #7, moving all subsequent films down one slot
