  • 10. Escape From Alcatraz
    Yep, another Eastwood film.
  • 9. Taxi Driver
    An awesome perforamce by Robert De Niro as a disturbed albiet amusing Vietman vet obsessed with guns and death. Slow to begin with but it really gets going midway through. Also liked Jodie Fosters role as a young postitute. A movie that really stays in your mind.
  • 8. Dirty Harry In Magnum Force
    I'm a huge Clint Eastwood fan and this movie is him at his best. Also features a young David Soul of Starsky and Hutch fame.
  • 7. Rocky 2
    Better than the original, in my opinion. Never got into the last two.
  • 6. One Flew Over The Cookoos Nest
    A truely exceptional film starring the one and only Jack Nicholson.
  • 5. Dirty Harry
    Classic Eastwood. Violent, eerie and action packed. A great performance by Clint Eastwood & Andrew Robinson as the deranged killer.
  • 4. Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory
    Still as fun and exciting as it was in 1971. Gene Wilder at his absolute best. Those Ooompa Loompas are a bit on the dodgy side though.
  • 3. Saturday Night Fever
    Responsible for the disco craze of the late 70's. The Bee Gees are awesome, as is John Travolta & his dance moves.
  • 2. Grease
    It's got it all: the awesome soundtrack, the 50's theme and John Travolta. A fun, timeless classic.
  • 1. The Warriors
    "Warriors...come out and playyy"
