Films of the 1970s: 1973 (2018 Edition)

Postby BleuPanda » Tue Jan 16, 2018 3:42 am

The rules:

You can post a list of anywhere between 1 and 20 films (or more, but only 20 will be counted) from the period we're covering. The deciding factor in terms of release dates is the IMDb list and the top 15 of each period will go on to the final top 150. The deadline is February 15. New rounds will be posted on the 15th and last day of each month.

The points scheme is as follows:
1. 50
2. 40
3. 35
4. 30
5. 25
6. 20
7. 18
8. 16
9. 14
10. 12
11. 10
12. 9
13. 8
14. 7
15. 6
16. 5
17. 4
18. 3
19. 2
20. 1

However, these are the maximum amounts of points. If you want to put certain films on your list but don't want to give them too many points, you can choose to give these less points than in this scheme (but never more) to decrease the impact on the overall results. If you don't specifically state that you want to give (some of) your films fewer points, I will assume the standard scheme.

If you vote for 4 movies or less, this is the adjusted scores:
4 votes
1. Movie 40 p
2. 35 p
3. 30 p
4. 25 p

3 votes
1. Movie 35 p
2. 30 p
3. 25 p

2 votes
1. Movie 30 p
2. 25 p

1 vote
1. Movie 25 p

Is Ingmar Bergman's Scenes from a Marriage from 1973 or 1974?

A simple search will reveal that it was aired on Swedish TV as a six-part miniseries in 1973 and was condensed (from 281 minutes to 167 minutes) into a theatrical version in 1974. There are 2 entries in Imdb too for the TV series (1973) and for the theatrical version (1974).

I know there's a 3-Disc DVD from Criterion Collection containing the long version but I personally have seen only the short version/1-Disc DVD.

I'm going with 1973 as I'm voting for the full mini-series; I wouldn't want to use an abridged version as the primary.

Changed my list to include Scenes from a Marriage. I guess since the movie version is cut from the TV miniseries then I'll put it here.

Thanks Bleu. Great year and great results.
Last time #15 of 1973 got 98 points. This time only 71. It's a pity that number of voters has diminished.

Ouch I guess if Greg had voted in time either Paper Moon or High Plains Drifter would have qualified. (Well High Plains Drifter with 78 points vs. Paper Moon 72).
