    I forget bad movies, mostly. As far as best, the asterisked ones have already been mentioned:

    Code:
    *1973 American Graffiti
    *1975 All the President's Men
     1975 The Return of the Pink Panther [1]
     1975 The Rocky Horror Picture Show
    *1975 Monty Python's The Holy Grail [2]
    *1976 Jaws
     1976 Rocky
    *1977 Star Wars [3]
     1977 The Spy Who Loved Me [4]
    *1978 Animal House
    *1979 Alien
    *1979 Apocalypse Now
    *1979 Monty Python's The Life of Brian [5]
    Depending on how you count your decades ;):

    Code:
      1980 The Empire Strikes Back
      1980 Airplane [2]
    [1] A Shot in the Dark is the very best and the first one is good but this one also works for me for some reason - I don't much like the others.

    [2] One of the three or four funniest movies ever.

    [3] Best movie ever.

    [4] Above average Moore Bond flick.

    [5] No Grail, but still great.
