Jason Chandler is a New Mexico State graduate, full-time Physical Education teacher, and part-time movie sparring partner to Jarrett Leahy. He is always open to passionate debate or civilized arguing, but believes, in the end, it’s whatever floats your cinematic boat. Jason has an affinity for Sam Peckinpah films and his major movie pet peeve is differentiating between “Best” movies and “Favorite” movies. FlickChart gives him nightmares. Once he took a selfie with Jack Palance and Jack told him to take it again because he blinked. His favorite movie is “The Godfather,” and his favorite movie scene is the diner scene with Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino in “Heat.”
