Deep Cut Recommendations

As we all know, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes and awesome places like that will always give you some recommendations… People who liked THIS also liked THIS. Your Most Excellent Hosts have their own recommendations, perhaps a bit further off the beaten track.

Nathan thinks you would like Unforgiven from 1992… not long after Young Guns, because it is a good version of this story.

Nate recommends you learn a bit about the ACTUAL old west with Ken Burns: The West Documentary. Nate also recommends a visit to the actual state of New Mexico.

Krissy miss remembered that the music of Bon Jovi is featured in Young Guns… it is NOT. It comes in to play in Young Guns 2. However, Krissy recommends it none the less.

Whats Up Next?

1989: The Burbs IMDB says…  An overstressed suburbanite and his fellow neighbors are convinced that the new family on the block are part of a murderous Satanic cult.
