The first one that pops into my head is "The Bad Sleep Well."

I'll think of some more later.

Never seen Death Wish.



Also, i'd like to give a shoutout to my new favorite non-Western showdown.

DRUNKEN ANGEL!

**spoilers for Drunken Angel**

It is truly just fine fine filmmaking, and i love it to death, when Matsunaga and Okada face off in his room, intercut with the Doc buying eggs for Matsunaga. When Matsunaga starts coughing up blood and Okada gets the knife... so heartbreaking. This whole movie is awesome, and my new favorite Kurosawa noir. Probably on my top 5 Kurosawa. And this scene is just..... sublime.

  I saw The Outfit this summer on TCM.  It's similar to Point Blank and Payback (the Mel Gibson version) with Robert Duvall fresh out of prison, teaming up with Joe Don Baker, and trying to get revenge on Robert Ryan, who plays a sort of mafioso.  I really enjoyed it if you can find a copy, silenzio.

  Does Sam Peckinpah's The Getaway count?  There's some good revenge motives there.

Well I'm sitting in my TV room, and scanning my DVD titles while I type (and that's as much as effort as I'm going to put into it in the moment)....and I see:

Payback (Love this film....I think the movie it's based on "Point Blank" is inferior)
Kill Bill (DOn't think this is a good film, but it's fun....and definitely not for all tastes)
Braveheart...not sure if you'd call this as a revenge film, but the murder of his wife is what sparked his action.

That's all I can think of at the moment...I'll probably steal some from other people's lists once I see them.

Yeah, me too.

I also think the Kill Bill movies are a lot of fun. I didn't like it very much the first time I saw it... but I've liked it more the two times I've seen it since then. It's especially cool now that I can pick up on some of the Spaghetti Western References / Music.

One revolution is more than enough for me.

Payback was the first I thought of.
Kill Bill
Cape Fear (with either Mitchum or DeNiro)
Death Wish

It's a revenge movie of a different sort, but I really enjoyed Altman's Gosford Park.
