1977 movies I'd rather watch than Star Wars

Wherein the * notes movies I saw in 1977 and liked better than Star
Wars then



  • *Close Encounters of the Third Kind
  • *Smokey and the Bandit
  • The Goodbye Girl
  • *The Rescuers
  • The Deep (or at least the wet parts with Jacqueline Bisset)
  • Annie Hall
  • The Gauntlet
  • The Turning Point
  • *Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo
  • Slapshot
  • *The Hobbit
  • Jabberwocky
  • Kentucky Fried Movie
  • Semi-Tough

Wanted to add Gray Lady Down but it was out in 1978, not 1977. I saw that one twice.

*Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Yes, easily. Still one of Spielberg's best.

*Smokey and the Bandit

Ugh.

*The Goodbye Girl

It was okay.

The Rescuers

Didn't see it at the time. Seen it since and it's part of that '70s-'80s Disney animation nadir.

The Deep (or at least the wet parts with Jacqueline Bisset)

There are other parts?


*Annie Hall

Yeah. Didn't get it then. Probably would just flat out hate it now.

The Gauntlet

Love it.

The Turning Point

Haven't seen it.

*Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo

Remember that crack about Disney animation nadir? They also had a live-action nadir.

Slapshot

Still haven't seen it.

*The Hobbit

Made-for-TV Rankin-Bass crud.

Jabberwocky

Unfunny. Grimy.

Kentucky Fried Movie

Awesome precursor to "Airplane!"

Semi-Tough

Burt Reynold's was just The Thing, wasn't he?

Sorcerer (this was the best movie of 1977)

I've heard that. Haven't seen it yet.
