Re: Favorite movie of 1969

So, a choice between Easy Rider and Battle of Britain, the only two '69 movies I've seen in their entirety.

The Wild Bunch.

At the time it probably would've been Z, my school picture from second grade I'm wearing a Z button.

The Wild Bunch...and if you're not getting technical about it...Once Upon A Time In The West...but it was released in '68 back in Italy, and released as a butchered mess in '69.

Re: Favorite movie of 1969

Without looking at the list and going by the suggestions so far, I imagine nothing would top The Wild Bunch, but I still need to see Z.

Tough call.

I have several, some already mentioned, so I'll go with 'Army of Shadows'.

A masterpiece.

Re: Favorite movie of 1969

If release date in the U.S. is the determining factor to decide if it's a "1969" movie, then I go with:

Once Upon a Time in the West

(U.S. release date: May 28, 1969)

Paint Your Wagon, but only if the scene in The Simpsons when the family watches it together counts.

In reality...The Wild Bunch with Easy Rider placing a very very close second.

Sleeper pick: John and Mary, which is my favorite romance film of all-time.

Re: Favorite movie of 1969

I'll go with On Her Majesty's Secret Service because it is my favorite of the Bond movies (big fan of Diana Rigg). But I think I enjoyed Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid just as much.

Honorable Mention:
I remember liking Z at the time although I haven't seen it since.
And True Grit is something of a sentimental favorite because it was filmed where I now live.
