Pin It


Expect Delays

I may have finished my Oscar coverage, but I'm going to take a little more time with my Retro Hollmanns. One more week, at least. I just don't think I can effectively determine the Best Picture of 1974 without having seen at least 50 films from that year. Right now, I'm at thirty-nine. I didn't think it was that low, but then I realized I haven't seen Ali: Fear Eats the Soul in three years and remember shit-all about it. So now it's down to 39. For comparison's sake: I caught about 73 flicks for the 2010 Hollmann Awards. I know the task I've set is difficult, but momma didn't raise no quitter. All I ask is one week to add at least eleven titles to the following:

Airport 75
Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore
The Beast Must Die
Black Belt Jones
Black Christmas
Blazing Saddles
Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia
The Conversation
Day for Night
Death Wish
Flesh for Frankenstein
The Front Page
The Godfather: Part II
The Great Gatsby
Harry and Tonto
The Island at the Top of the World
The Little Prince
The Man with the Golden Gun
Murder on the Orient Express
The Night Porter
The Odessa File
The Parallax View
Phantom of the Paradise
The Sugarland Express
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
Thieves Like Us
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot
The Towering Inferno
A Woman Under the Influence
Young Frankenstein
