From Star Wars to Saturday Night Fever, to The Godfather and Grease, Annie Hall and Alien, the 1970s was THE decade for great movies. Here at Easy Riders Raging Podcast we're looking back at all the classics of the decade, discussing the films of Scorsese, Friedkin, Coppola, Altman, De Palma and many many more. Aside from our discussions, each episode includes some of our trademark features such as Recastarama (where we recast the film using current actors) and Who Am I (where we work out who we would be in the film). Lots of fun to be had. [Our 1960s series is also available]

    102- The French Connection (1970s, William Friedkin #2)

    Concluding our 1970s coverage of films by director William Friedkin (I couldn't get hold of 'The Brink's Job', in case you wondered why this wasn't covered), this week Kieran and I discuss his Oscar-winning cop film, 'The French Connection'.
    Along the way we ramble on as if our lives depended on it, but have a bloody good chat about a 1970s classic.

    Call Mr. Plow, that's my name. That name again, is Mr. Plow. And on this episode Kieran and I have a dynamite conversation on the film 'Sorcerer' by William Friedkin. A film we certainly had mixed opinions about but wholeheartedly agree you should check out if you haven't seen it.

Great stuff

I find a lot of film podcasts annoying for a variety of reasons, but these guys have nailed it. Fun, informative and (hopefully) heading to the 80’s soon. Long may it last!

Ok

Having picked up on this recently, it can be fun but the lads do lack a bit of knowledge of a lot of the films they are discussing. Getting actors and character names right is basic stuff. It otherwise generally enjoyable.

Cinephiles will love this

I’m a huge fan of 70s cinema and I’m glad to have come across this podcast. They discuss some well known films but also discuss lesser known films as well. I find this podcast highly informative and detailed. I definitely recommend this podcast to those who love this excellent era in cinema’s history.
