Film Club Rule #777: When selecting a year to celebrate it’s best to go to a galaxy far far away.
A year many consider to be a banner year for cinema, 1977 boasted some of the most talked about and influential films of the 20th century. It’s the year Star Wars became the largest grossing film ever, John Travolta strutted down the street to the disco beats of ABBA, and Burt Reynolds was as big a movie star as anyone. We look at the influential films of the year and discuss some similar films that maybe didn’t get as much attention. Join us, as we look at disco, rednecks, and a little sci-fi action.
