    Was it 1982 when STAR WARS officially called its chapter ''A New Hope?''

    CAPRICORN ONE was released to one or two preview theaters in '77, though I believe it had its mass release in the summer of 1978.

    I saw AIRPORT '77 in a theater with my brother and mother. I was young enough then to think if the characters would drown, so would I. It's hard to believe it now.

    I give THE SPY WHO LOVED ME honorable mention. Certainly the best Roger Moore installment. My top five for 1977 would be STAR WARS, BLACK SUNDAY, TWILIGHT'S LAST GLEAMING, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS and THE GETTING OF WISDOM (which was released in America a few years after '77.

    I don't have many actual faves from '77 apart from Star Wars and CE3K. (And Pumping Iron, for some reason.) :)

    A lot of likes, but not many faves.

    Star Wars, Annie Hall, CE3K are 1-2-3 for me. Sorcerer is a great movie, seems to be under-appreciated.

    I remember going to the '78 and '97 re-releases, but the ''chapter'' business truly began with EMPIRE in 1980. One year later, ANH got the Chapter One treatment for its second re-release. (Thank you, StarWars.com.)

    Star Wars is still number one but I always enjoy Smokey And The Bandit and A Bridge Too Far. I've never really rated Close Encounters, surprisingly, and I'm sure I've seen Airport '77 but all those Airport movies tend to blur into one over time (OK, not the Concorde one!), as great as they all are.

    Being a Harryhausen puppet animation fan, I quite enjoyed "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger". Alas, it was all but forgotten when a certain lil "space opera" was already stealling the box office. Boy, did I ever have a crush upon Jane Seymour! Years later, after I discovered Doctor Who, I appreciated it and the previous outing "The Golden Voyage of Sinbad" for the fact both films featured actors who played the Doctor. Patrick Troughton played a Greek philosopher/inventor named Melanthius in "Eye of the Tiger" and Tom Baker played the antagonist Koura in "Golden Voyage"...which lead to his landing the titular role in Doctor Who.

    What's wrong? My guess is that it really inflated all those blasted Moon-hoax believers (MHBs).
    Right next to the first "Birth of a Nation," it is a film that I despise with the heat of a million suns
