Sure! I might see a couple have no plans, except to see one of the Hababam sinifi movies. So I have a pretty good plan.

On my watchlist (containing all the films I have on my computer/shelves that I haven't watched), I count 31 films from the 70s, so I'll try and get through half of them. Mostly seems to be Fassbinder, Chabrol and samurai flicks..

I'm in! This is actually going to be my "main" challenge this month, because decade-wise, this is where my largest number of viewing gaps hang out, and I've been looking forward to filling in just a little more of that black hole. (The '60s is probably runner-up in that department.) Shooting for 30.

I'll say I'm in, but I dunno if I'll stick to that.

Thanks Crinderman - I was editing my post at the same time you posted this - I added 4 more lists from icm as I did a search for "70s" instead of '1970' and found a few more but yeah it looks good :)

Very interesting list indeed, 70s are probably my favorite decade for movies (and music as well).

I'm in..

My primary goal is 4. It may look like a very low number but the movies I have planned to watch are,

Süt kardesler
The Girl with the Red Scarf
Hababam sinifi uyaniyor
Hababam sinifi sinifta kaldi

:sweat:


If I survive this wrath, I'll try to gain silver in 1970s list which would be 4 more movies away.

I actually need 3 for platinum in the 1970's list and they are:

Sholay
Süt kardesler
Hababam sinifi uyaniyor

Sholay I have actually seen about an hour of and it is rather enjoyable so Ill have a bit of a refresh with that one and then finish it off. I had 70's platinum ages ago and I want it back :)

1. The Friends of Eddie Coyle (Yates, 1973) 7/10

Nice scuzzy little crime film, featuring the always great Robert Mitchum as one of those complete losers in life. The ageing criminal who never managed to retire to Florida like all his contemporaries.

2. Lady Snowblood: Blizzard from the Netherworld (Fujita, 1973) 6/10

If I didn't know already, I would have quickly seen that this was big influence for Kill Bill. It's an enjoyable enough vengeance tale, with some stylish touches. Little bit too simplistic in characters/plot, but that's par for the genre.

1. Cracked Actor (1975) Alan Yentob

Fascinating look at an obviously drugged out, yet still wonderful, David Bowie. I had seen parts of this in other David Bowie docs, but I'm so glad I got to see this.

01. Let's Scare Jessica to Death -- Hancock, 1971.

You'd think people would know to avoid Connecticut farmhouses by now. This is a sort of New Hollywood version of a horror film -- like the Two-Lane Blacktop of horror films, with the major distinction that Two-Lane Blacktop is actually a really great film, while this film is just...meandering and low-key and...whatever. Jessica (Zohra Lampert) has been released from a mental institution after a breakdown; of course the place to regain one's sanity is an old Connecticut farmhouse with a scary legend about former locals. The "horror" component is largely psychological -- like The Innocents, with the major distinction that The Innocents is actually a really great film, while...oh. Well, then. The viewer gets to spend lots of time wondering whether Jessica's going mad...again...or not. The performances were okay, but...I kept wishing I was watching The Innocents or Two-Lane Blacktop.

Any idea where to find English subtitle for "Süt kardesler" ? or even a English dubbed version will do..

If they are not available, I'm gonna translate each and every line of the only available Turkish subtitle or I'm gonna assume my own story. either way, I'm definitely watching this movie..

Now that's a harsh judgment :D
Granted, it's not for everyone and not an easy viewing, I believe I rated it 6/10, certainly not among my favorites, but at least the acting was solid.
