When I'm not watching movies, I'm...
not watching movies, I'm not watching movies, I'm not watching movies, I'm not watching movies, I'm not watching movies, I'm not watching movies, I'm not watching movies, I'm not watching movies, I'm not watching movies, I'm not watching movies, I'm...

After my previous blog about overrated movies, I decided I was going to make a new list -- one that's much less attack-y. I am going to be counting down my personal picks for the top 5 greatest male acting performances of the 1970s. You couldn't believe how hard it was for me to narrow it down to only 50 (I had about 80 that I wanted to put on here, so if one of your favorites is missing...) considering how much I love movies from the '70s, but here you go anyway. No write-ups or anything for each of the entries, just pictures, so I'll break this into either 3 or 5 different blogs which I will be sure to send out at least 100 times each -- because if I can't irritate people with the contents of my list, I'm going to do it another way.
If you have any suggestions for movies I need to watch, don't hesitate to throw them out! I am always looking for more good movies (remember I used the word "good" here) that I may not have heard of. Preferably ones with actors I'm unfamiliar with.
