Good: Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia - Maybe not as objectively great as The Wild Bunch, but this is the Peckinpah flick which lingers with me the most (with the possible exception of Straw Dogs). Peckinpah's last truly great film.

Bad: The Getaway - It's honestly pretty sloppy and the pacing is all over the place, but I'm willing to forgive it's many flaws just for that final ten-minute stretch with Slim Pickens.

Ugly: Convoy - As movies based on country songs go, at least it's better than Harper Valley P.T.A.

Good: Straw Dogs - This is a little personal but I don't think I've seen a movie character as close to myself as Dustin Hoffman's character here.

Bad: The Ostereman Weekend <<ducks>> - I was having a blast until that twist.

Ugly: Maybe The Getaway but that was still ok.
+1. this is very interesting.
