Straw Dogs...thoroughly disturbing movie but that's the buttons it was trying to push.

I voted for the Wild Bunch, but Ride the High Country is a very close second.

I'm still trying to figure out if I've seen CROSS OF IRON. This is one film along with KILLER ELITE that I don't believe I've seen of his yet.

It stars James Coburn as a German soldier during WWII,and it's basically seen through  the eyes of the "bad"guys,the German army. Amazing battle scenes ecspecially the climax.Try it,I Guarentte you'll like it. Thumbup

Killer Elite is pretty bad.  One or two good scenes, and that's really it.

The Wild Bunch is the best of his that I've seen, but there are a number I haven't gotten to yet, unfortunately.  In particular, I want to see Ride the High Country, Cross of Iron, and the Getaway.

RCMercant if Jame Coburn is in it then I probably haven't seen it. Next time I subscribe to Netflix I'll put it on my first 3 films to rent. Sounds like a great film.

I had to pick The Killer Elite, of all his movies that I've seen this is the one that I enjoyed the most, but they're all so good that if you ask me tomorrow I'll have a different answer. Mr. Peckinpah's films have always managed to connect with me in some way.

Voted for The Wild Bunch. But he had a run of films from that up until The Getaway where I thought he did no wrong.

I also like Ride the High Country a lot. There are a few I haven't seen like The Deadly Companions and Bring Me the Head..... I've only seen a badly edited version of Pat Garrett and...., so my opinion of it is skewed.

The Getaway is overrated, to me anyway, as is Major Dundee. I might have like Cross of Iron more if I hadn't read the much better book around the same time.

The Killer Elite, The Ostermann Weekend, Convoy are crap for the most part to me. A master wasting his skills with too much booze, coke, and ego. Give me Junior Bonner and ....Cable Hogue over these anyday, since they show he was capable of more than plastering the screen with machismo, blood squibs, and slo-mo violence.
