My favorite films tend to be crime stories from the 60s, 70s, and early 80s, and, of course, action movies, although I am becoming more and more of a snob when it comes to action. I've noticed that I have less and less tolerance for films with exaggerated action, where the laws of physics and common sense are thrown out the window or for action films that combine action and comedy. My desire for realism could be seen as a return to my early years of watching movies, for some of the very first adult movies I remember watching and enjoying were war movies like A BRIDGE TOO FAR, PATTON, THE BIG RED ONE, MIDWAY, and TWELVE O'CLOCK HIGH -- just to mention a couple.

I also enjoy comedies and dramas, but they have to be well-written and interesting with the least amount of clich├ęs as possible. I don't mean conventions. The romantic comedy, for instance, has some pretty straightforward conventions but that is different from a cliche. I hesitate to mention my almost obsessive search for decent science fiction films. BLADE RUNNER and ALIEN got me hooked, and I've been searching for that kind of gold ever since. Like trying to find the Holy Grail.

I'm going to start this collection of movies with some of the more obscure crime films from the 1970s, a time of filmmaking that I love for its grittiness, its lack of polish, the realism of the stunts, and generally its imperfections which give it a kind of innocence that reflects the era itself.
