What Were The 24 Best-Reviewed Movies of 1977?

by | August 29, 2017 | Comments

Box office is hitting the lowest numbers since the red alert days of Glitter. And this weekend doesn’t look to turn things around, unless Tulip Fever draws the Waldenbooks crowd out of hiding and makes $200 million (conservative estimate) by Sunday. Let us avert our eyes then, away from contemporary misery and back to a more joyful era: 1977! The gilded year of Atari 2600s, 65 cent gas, and guillotine executions, when Disco Demolition Night was still but a twinkle in some blue collar slob’s eye…

The in-flight movie on our ’77 trip is Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the landmark extraterrestrial drama that’s re-releasing in theaters this week for its 40th anniversary. The Certified Fresh trophy we made from mashed potatoes and sent to Spielberg’s office went unanswered for some reason, so instead we’ll be commemorating the moment with our gallery of the 24 best-reviewed movies (with at least 20 reviews) of 1977! How many have you seen?
