Which 70s Movie Tells The Story Of Your Life?



It is common to relate movies with our lives. We saw many of Hollywood’s finest works during this decade.

Let us discuss a few of them.

1.The Godfather II (1974)

We all know The Godfather is one of the best movie series ever made. The sequel of the original The Godfather was also nothing short of awe-inspiring. It is considered one of the best gangster movies of all time.

2. One flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)

It is played beautifully by Jack Nicholson who plays as a reckless criminal who thought that he will avoid his sentence by heading to a mental institute.  It didn’t turn out as he thought and its consequences were extremely catastrophic.

3.Apocalypse Now (1979)

It is also a Francis Ford Coppola movie. It is a war movie but with an unusual tinge to it. Many philosophical theories like existentialism have been beautifully knit in the story. The movie has various scenes that are open to debates on various psychological aspects.

4.Star Wars (1977)

George Lucas had the idea of what mainstream audiences usually want from a movie. For them, he created a unique franchise that the cinemagoers of that time had never experienced. It had not lost its shine even after so many decades and will likely remain so for a few more decades.

5.The Exorcist (1973)

It was from William Friedkin who also directed the masterpiece The French Connection. While this one is also not an exception. It is considered to be one of the scariest movies of all time. It was the first horror movie to pave its way to the Oscars as it got the nomination for The Best Picture Award. It definitely showed that the horror genre must not be taken lightly.

Other notable mentions include Taxi Driver, Rocky, Chinatown, and The Deer Hunter. During the 70s many such movies were released and it is considered to be one of the best decades of Hollywood. If you feel we have missed any of them then you could leave a comment in the comments section down below.

“The whole of life is just like watching a film. Only it’s as though you always get in ten minutes after the big picture has started, and no-one will tell you the plot, so you have to work it out all yourself from the clues.”
― Terry Pratchett, Moving Pictures

“Many of my movies have strong female leads- brave, self-sufficient girls that don’t think twice about fighting for what they believe with all their heart. They’ll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a savior. Any woman is just as capable of being a hero as any man.”
― Hayao Miyazaki

“Certain things leave you in your life and certain things stay with you. And that’s why we’re all interested in movies- those ones that make you feel, you still think about. Because it gave you such an emotional response, it’s actually part of your emotional make-up, in a way.”
― Tim Burton, Burton on Burton

“We love films because they makes us feel something. They speak to our desires, which are never small. They allow us to escape and to dream and to gaze into the eyes that are impossibly beautiful and huge. They fill us with longing. But also. They tell us to remember; they remind us of life. Remember, they say, how much it hurts to have your heart broken.”
― Nina LaCour, Everything Leads to You

“Have you ever seen The Last of the Mohicans?”
“I love it.”
“Really?” I’m over the moon. We share a movie. Finally, we’re on the same planet.
“Don’t you love the part where he says, ‘Stay alive. I will find you’?” I ask.
“I love that massacre scene,” he says, like an excited little boy, “where they’re walking down that path in the middle of nowhere and they’re surrounded by the woods and you know the Indians are going to attack and it’s so tense.”
Things that make you go hmmm.
― Melina Marchetta, Saving Francesca
