Wizards 1977,  PG)
Wizards
The script and storyline is stellar, and it would have been nicer if Bakshi had a higher budget to make the animation more fluid. A cult classic at it's best, and I can see why people wouldn't like it.

Taxi Driver 1976,  R)
Taxi Driver
A stellar look into the psyche of one who's trying to connect. Questionable still is whether this was a character descention or ascension.

The Outlaw Josey Wales 1976,  PG)
The Outlaw Josey Wales
An excellent western, with a more so than usual badass character by Clint Eastwood. Better than many other westerns, this carries themes of loss and trauma that will always be able to resonate.
4
The Enforcer 1976,  R)
The Enforcer
It would be a perfect action movie, if not compared to the first Dirty Harry.
5
Carrie 1976,  R)
Carrie
Disturbing and unsettling to say the least, and downright terrifying right at the end. Very solid horror fare.
6
Network 1976,  R)
Network
Powerful acting and still resonates today.

All the President's Men 1976,  PG)
All the President's Men
Fascinating, if only for its historical significance. Great for teaching, but not necessarily for pure enjoyment. Worth watching once.
8
Rocky 1976,  PG)
Rocky
Like several of the Best Picture winners of the seventies, Rocky had a very slow start. The dialogue was most unimpressive, but the character of Rocky was incredibly well written. I wasn't impressed with the acting, but its Sylvester Stallone. That was pretty good for him. The last hour really picked up the story and made the movie fairly good. Am I the only one who can barely understand what Stallone says?
9
Marathon Man 1976,  R)
Marathon Man
Decent, but probably better at the time. Laurence Olivier was magnificent.
10
In the Realm of the Senses 1976,  NC-17)
In the Realm of the Senses
Just a mediocre porn, really, that was shot well, until the final scene. That was quite messed up.
