    Then Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid directed by a drunken Peckinpah who would threaten the crew by shooting off a pistol in the air.

    Hal Needham died. I know this means nothing to you kids whose idea of action is watching a CGI batman crash his CGI car through a CGI wall, but Needham was the last of the great stunt guys and a hell of a director making some of my favourite fun movies: Smokey and the Bandit (1&2), Hooper, The Cannonball Run (1&2) and the greatest title in all of moviedom, Stroker Ace.

    Pat Garret is kind of a mess imo. I like it but it's got nothing on the Wild Bunch, which is the 2nd best western of all time (after Rio Bravo)

    Run Lola Run, best movie I've seen in ages. Perfect soundtrack/film synergy.

    Rio Bravo is one of my favourite movies period. I even song along with Dean and Ricky.

    70s movies directed by drunk megalomaniacs are a fun watch no matter how much a mess they are.

    Yeah I like all of Peckinpah's movies from the 70s. Bring me the Head of Alfredo Garcia is weird as shit but so great. Straw Dogs is hard to watch but worth it if you've got the heart.

    Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia has to be the second best movie title ever.

    Straw Dogs is brilliant.

    Do not watch the remake.

    Nice to see Cat Ballou and Rio Bravo so high. And I would have put Little Big Man much higher.
