    I love Clint's portrayal of a Mexican Bandito in that film. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I love many of the ones already mentioned, particularly the Clint pair and Death Wish. Now I'll toss out a few more low-brow choices (this is, after all, "favorites"...not necessarily "best"...right? [​IMG])

    Mad Max

    I Spit On Your Grave

    The Last House On The Left

    Young Guns

    Friday The 13th (the original, when it was Mom...not Jason...knocking off the happy campers; spoiler-tagged just in case there's anybody on the planet who actually hasn't seen this one by now)


    Theater Of Blood

    Orca, The Killer Whale
