Hellbent for Letterbox Episode 50 | Young Guns (1988) and Young Guns II (1990)

To celebrate the 50th episode of Hellbent for Letterbox, Pax and I set aside the Pony Express and Whatchoo Been Westernin' to focus exclusively on the two Young Guns movies starring Emilio Estevez, Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips, and a couple of posses' worth of other '80s Brat Packers.

We're both crazy about Young Guns, but have different opinions on the sequel. It's a great discussion, so make yourself comfortable and settle in for this double-size celebration.

Congratulations on a landmark episode! An inspired choice for the 50th.

I saw this when Shawn and Pax covered it for Cult Film Club. I remember thinking how a western was a curious choice for the Brat Pack since westerns probably would have been considered "your dad's movies" by the 80s and it may have sparked a revival for more than just the two of you guys.
