i agree with you that punch drunk love is tops on the sandler list, but little nicky doesn't crack the top 5?

Sorry, but Little Nicky stinks...Punch Drunk is easily the top, though I'm eager to see Spanglish...

If you limit your Sam Peckinpah choices to non-Westerns, doesn't that sort of miss the point?

Jon Hastings said...


No. My point is that Peckinpah's non-Westerns are good and worth seeing. But I was trying to be a little bit funny.
