That Moment In All The President’s Men (1976)


All the President’s Men isn’t just a great movie from the 70’s.  It’s a great movie ABOUT the 70’s.  The Watergate scandal was one of the defining events of the decade.  Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman – two of the biggest stars of the seventies –  portrayed journalists Woodward and Bernstein in the Hollywood version of the biggest scandal of the day.

This review of All the President’s Men is from the wonderful website, That Moment In…

’70s Movies Bracket Game: Star Wars v Rocky


Screen Shot 2015-04-12 at 7.38.18 PM

Welcome to the second round of our bracket game celebrating the absolute best the movies had to offer during the 1970s! As someone who was in elementary school at the end of the decade, I have had to catch up on most of these films on home video, but even the move to the small screen cannot blunt the impact of such strong storytelling. During this round, I will be focusing on one great scene from each film and will share my thoughts about what those scenes mean, why they are great, or how they were executed. Then you get to whittle down our field a little by voting on your favorite!

Songs From the Final Season of Mad Men: The Beatles – Let it Be


With no standout song on tonight’s episode of Mad Men, I have decided to cover the song that sat at #1 on the Billboard singles chart on this date in 1970, the year that the award-winning drama finds itself in. These are the final episodes of Mad Men, and “Let it Be” was the last single released by the Beatles before Paul McCartney announced that he was leaving the group. It debuted at #6, which was a record at the time and held down the #1 spot for two weeks in mid April. McCartney’s first solo album was released during that 2 week span, but failed to compete significantly with the continued Beatles releases. John Lennon denied any hand in creating the song and suggested that McCartney’s motivation for writing it was that “he wanted to write a ‘Bridge over Troubled Waters'”, but that seems unlikely and sounds like sour grapes when you consider that “Let it Be” was recorded a full year before “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” was released and the fact that McCartney’s songs were the ones from the “Let it Be” album which were being selected as singles. The song would go on to garner the Beatles both a Grammy and an Oscar.
