Just name your favorite movies of that period and let's see if there is a broad agreement or also some pleasant surprises.

...don't shoot me,please... but personally I prefer only => 80s movies... I usually avoid to watch 60/70s because, apart some exception, like 2001, no good sci-fi movies were produced during those years... but I'm open to suggestion, though!
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

Blasphemy! Big Grin
I think there are SOME people around, who actually do like Movies of that era Big GrinBig Grin ..
Personally, I feel there is a cut in movie history after the huge success of the Original Star Wars 1977, when movies became more commercial and less artistic.

Well, here we go:

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Taxi Driver
A Clockwork Orange
Godfather II

I haven't mentioned Star Wars because, even if it was presented in 1977, it was "ahead of its time" - like 2001, and so this is one of those exception - always considered an " '80s movie released too soon "!!! Big Grin

GBU: of course one (if not THE) of the great western of all time... Spaghetti Western rules - with Peplums and Italian B-grade horror movies...

A Clockwork Orange is a great film, another exception like 2001 - maybe because it was directed by the same director...

Now I leave the word to someone who knows better than me those decade's movies!

Alien and Close Encounters are other notable exceptions - still thinking to them as released in the wrong decade... Wink

Good 70s sci-fi (minus the obvious ones).... hmmm...

Solyaris (1972) (Solaris)
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)

Oh, I know:
Capricorn One (1977)

Not many that aren't campy, though.

The ones (I think) not mentioned yet...

The Graduate
Dr. Strangelove
The Apartment
Planet of the Apes (you know, the good one!)
Apocalype Now (okay, I agree this one can be a bit of a mess, but Robert Duvall is inspired)
The Godfather
Chinatown
Young Frankenstein (cough, c'mon Mr. 80's film man!)
Superman
My Fair Lady

The thing I love about 70's films is the pacing.  In the 60's and before, they were too busy trying to dazzle you, in the 80's and after they were too busy making it to the next plot point.  But in the 70's, man, a film could just meander.  You had to have patience, the story would reveal itself when it d*mn well wanted to.  I love that, because, well, it's more like real life and less like a video game.
