1975 was a landmark year for film as the era of the blockbuster truly began. Now this article, as others here will be, is not going to be the run of the mill "Oh god, look at all these great movies" sort of piece. You won't always get the classics you might expect, mainly because I haven't seen all the movies ever made but also because I don't want this to be like any other list. In a less roundabout way, I'm trying to say that I haven't seen One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest or Dog Day Afternoon.

I've written about this cheesy little piece of crap before but I still have to say it's one of the most enjoyable bad films I've seen in a while. Bad acting, bad action, cheese all the way.
I have a bit of a soft spot for this crappy Joe Don Baker vehicle made famous on MST3K. Honestly, apart from the sex scenes where we unfortunately have to see Joe Don Baker rutting like a weasel, the film isn't that bad. It's certainly no worse than any handful of other crummy cop films from the period.
1975 was a very important year for film. Steven Spielberg really came into his own, there was a nice selection of the older style films mixed with the newer style that came to prominence in the late sixties and it was just a very solid year in general.
