All great movies! Repo Man, Cobra, One False Move, and Red Rock West are a lot of fun! Mad Dog and Glory is very underrated.

Red Rock West features another great performance by Dennis Hopper and an excellent one by a pre-nutty Nic Cage. California Dreaming is better than your average teen beach comedy and has both Dennis Christopher and the great Seymour Cassell in it. I've been looking for Burn, Witch, Burn - can't wait to check it out. And, never heard of Joyride, but it looks interesting. Yet another superb list, thanks!

I didn't know Five Easy Pieces is on Watch Instantly, I can't wait to check that one out again! A bunch of the ones you have on here have been sitting in my queue for months, so your post is equal parts informative, and equal parts a reminder that I need to stop procrastinating!

TY-Yeah I am so pleased with all the good stuff people can view through Instant. I hope they are taking advantage!

SHIFTY-Thanks man! Yeah I have a real sof spot for Glynnis O'Connor. Sad that a several of my favs of hers(ODE TO BILLY JOE, BABY BLUE MARINE and others) are not on dvd!

DtVC-Which other films might you check out that were on the list? FIVE EASY PIECES is great. Solid 70s Nicholson. Not LAST DETAIL good, but pretty fantastic.
