Aggh - don't know how that happened. I've edited to include the other 5.

I'm hoping TGM stays at No.1 for the year. If it doesn't, it still gets included here anyway.

Kramer vs Kramer was so much bigger than a movie like that could ever be today, even in the 70s all the other number 1s feel blockbuster ish.

Would be like having Marriage Story or something similar make $400m now. Quite incredible but back then adult films dominated.

Sorry. But despite seeing them a lot, the Star Wars movies just aren't that special to me. Not one would enter my Top 200 films. The Last Jedi's not even necessarily bad, it's just forgettable to me. I also sort of merge it in my mind with Rogue One - which was dull, dull, dull. It's a mix of being part of an underwhelming/bad New Trilogy and all the other top grossing films in the last 50 years being good-to-excellent.
