Two Minute Warning (1976)

"Two Minute Warning, about a mad sniper in a crowded football stadium, has the suspense, the compassion, the human vision and the individual nuance you would expect in a movie about a foot stepping on an anthill." ‐New York Times

Nickelodeon (1976)

"Peter Bogdanovich knows a great deal about movies, including how they are made. Perhaps he doesn't know why they are made. In any case, knowing how something is made isn't the same as making it." ‐New York Times

The Travelling Players (O thiasos) (1976)

"Length is part of its problem. A much greater problem is that the political message that is only one of the threads in the first part thickens into hawser dimensions, strangling the film and the audience along with it." ‐New York Times

The Omen (1976)

"A member of the Exorcist family, it is a dreadfully silly film, which is not to say that it is totally bad." ‐New York Times

Rancho Deluxe (1975)

"It is so cool it is barely alive." ‐New York Times

Freaky Friday (1976)

"Toward the end there are some amusing car-chase scenes. Elsewhere the humor is clotted by the feeling that the jokes are chasing the reactions, instead of the other way around." ‐New York Times

The Killer Elite (1975)

"Sam Peckinpah knows how to make movies but perhaps he has forgotten why." ‐New York Times

Solaris (1976)

"This complex and sometimes very beautiful film is about humanity but hardly at all about politics." ‐New York Times

Farewell, My Lovely (1975)

"It's as if someone had put pillow springs, power-steering and a tape deck into a classic racing-car. It is still handsome and it still goes, but it is a handsome mediocrity." ‐New York Times

Pumping Iron (1976)

"An interesting, rather slick and excessively long documentary about the small but intensely competitive world of body-building." ‐New York Times

Faustrecht der Freiheit (Fox and His Friends) (Fist-Fight of Freedom) (1975)

"It excludes all life that is not within the very narrow intentions of its author. Its pores have been painted over." ‐New York Times

End of the Game (Der Richter und sein Henker) (The Judge and His Hangman) (1975)

"Instead of every hour or half-hour, the cuckoo pops out every minute and a half." ‐New York Times

Xala (1975)

"It is part fable and part satire, but it is much more." ‐New York Times

The Apple Dumpling Gang (1975)

"Walt Disney started by making movies in which animated drawings played the parts of people or animals who stood for people. Later he turned to making movies in which people or animals play the parts of animated drawings." ‐New York Times

Carrie (1976)

"It is sometimes funny in a puzzling kind of way, it is generally overwrought in an irritating kind of way, and once in a while it is inappropriately touching." ‐New York Times

The Gumball Rally (1976)

"People who pay money to see this effort to find knee-slappers in the 55 mile-an-hour speed limit will also make amiable fools of themselves." ‐New York Times

The Black Bird (1975)

"The Black Bird is an enchanting half-hour spoof of Humphrey Bogart and The Maltese Falcon. Too bad it lasts over an hour and a half." ‐New York Times

Dersu Uzala (1975)

"The episodes in this second part go on endlessly, loosely, obviously. They lack the revelations of the winter scenes and they do little but belabor at length the points already made. They wreck the film's balance and make its achievements dull." ‐New York Times

The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser (Jeder für sich und Gott gegen alle)(Every Man for Himself and God Against All) (1974)

"Every Man is a superb movie because Mr. Herzog has managed to treat the fable in stunning human and dramatic terms." ‐New York Times

A Boy and His Dog (1975)

"The good ideas are marred by awkwardness; the terrible ideas are redeemed somewhat by being, at least, unpredictable." ‐New York Times

The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976)

"A soggy attempt at a post-Civil War western epic." ‐New York Times

The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976)

"There are quite a few science-fiction movies scheduled to come out in the next year or so. We shall be lucky if even one or two are as absorbing and as beautiful as The Man Who Fell to Earth." ‐New York Times
