Pick: Which '70s summer movies would you pay to see in theaters?

Are your tastes more horror, Rocky or Rocky Horror?

Thanks to sharks, boxers, Muppets, James Bond, chocolate, cars and Jedi knights, the Seventies were when summer blockbusters truly took off.

Westerns, horror, sci-fi and slapstick were all on offer. Tickets cost about two bucks on average back then. Pretty good deal, no? 

But let's say you could only see ONE movie each summer. Perhaps you had an allowance, or were just really busy playing outside. 

Whatever the reason, chose the single movie that would earn your $2 admission. See how your tastes compare!
  1. If you could only see one movie in the summer of '79, which would it be?
  2. If you could only see one movie in the summer of '78, which would it be?
  3. If you could only see one movie in the summer of '77, which would it be?
  4. If you could only see one movie in the summer of '76, which would it be?

Beat movies on this list are Rocky 2, Smokey and the Bandit,The Longest Yard and Willie Wonka.Jaws was ground breaking when it came out,but aside from the"Your gonna need a bigger boat" line it didn't really hold up well.
