    I've actually only seen The Warriors, and I love it. Probably a 9.

    I saw Last Man Standing back when it came out - but I was 9 or 10 at the time, and I really don't remember it at all.

    That's a nice picture of Hill.

    If E posts the results like he did last time, I'll probably get the Devotee award again, although I was quite surprised that I had seen the most Ridleys given my impression of his work.

    And I'm assuming that his Tales From the Crypt episodes count, because they're 30 minutes, give or take a minute or two. I know many haven't seen them, but I highly highly highly recommend them, as I think they're among his best work.

    Hard Times - 7
    The Driver - 10
    The Warriors - 9
    The Long Riders - 8.5
    Southern Comfort - 8
    48 Hours - 7
    Streets of Fire - 8
    Brewster's Million - 6.5
    Crossroads - 10
    Extreme Prejudice - 9
    Red Heat - 6.5
    Another 48 Hours - 7
    Tales from the Crypt Episodes:
    -The Man Who Was Death - 9
    -Cutting Cards - 10
    -Deadline - 7
    Trespass - 9.5
    Wild Bill - 6.5
    Last Man Standing - 7
    Undisputed - 9

    Will try to get in Johnny Handsome, Geronimo, Supernova, and Broken Trail.

    I'll probably only do the graphs and devotees for the ones that I keep track of. If Raiders wants to do it, it's all him. Although the graph is pretty simple to do, so maybe I'll still do that one every week.

    Damn I forgot that I had seen one film from the man:

    Red Heat(1988)-5.0

    I've seen some of both 48 Hours films but I haven't viewed them completely. I realized all this after I checked Criticker to see if I had seen any movies from Hill. I should have done that earlier.

    Are we going to hold Supernova to him? We absolved Coppola of any responsibility.

    Will try to get in Johnny Handsome
    This is actually a pretty good film, featuring some great acting with a disfigured Chris Walken seeking revenge against the villainous tandem of Ellen Barkin and Lance Henriksen. Boasts another great Ry Cooder score too.

    Hill is one of my (many) embarrassing blind spots. Well, I have seen bits of Last Man Standing, in which I recall the action sequences being strikingly shot and choreographed. In any case, I'll be watching several of his movies over the next week, beginning with his cherry popper, Hard Times, with Undisputed, The Warriors, The Driver, and 48 Hours hopefully to follow.
    Letterboxd rating scale:
    The Long Riders (Hill) ***
    Furious 7 (Wan) **½
    Hard Times (Hill) ****½
    Another 48 Hrs. (Hill) ***
    /48 Hrs./ (Hill) ***½
    The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec (Besson) ***
    /Unknown/ (Collet-Serra) ***½
    Animal (Simmons) **
