I'll go if you can buy me a plane ticket to Phoenix. First class, if you please.




I'm really looking forward to this flick. I'm in a mood for a good new Western.

I think it is, but I never saw the original. Therefore, to me, it's new. :)

Just got back from seeing this movie. What a movie. Bale and Crowe have a great time playing off of each other. This movie in the words of Peter Fonda "was not a remake but more like James Mangold (director) read a short story by Elmore Leonard and put his own stamp on it" I am paraphrasing but judging from the audience who when asked if they had seen the original with John Wayne nearly half raised their hands all nodded in agreement that this movie really isn't like the original.

Peter was an interesting guy. Said dude, man and groovy quite a bit. Also had plenty of interesting things to say about his career and the movie itself. A horse died and an actor was seriously injured on the first day of shooting. Horse ran into a camera mounted on a truck, broke it's neck and the actor had a punctured lung, broken clavicle and other injuries. Had to be recast.

Fans of old westerns should go see this. There are a couple of 'cameos' I didn't expect but don't wanna ruin them for the rest of you. Movie comes out Sept 7

Good point, especially since AZChieffan got to see it nearly three weeks ago. I guess it's to gauge interest, and decide how many theaters to release it in? :shrug:

The trailers look good on this one. But anybody who goes to see it MUST check out the great original and watch IT first. Glenn Ford who normally plays good guys is fantastic as the villain. You will enjoy it a lot. But see it BEFORE the new one.

Wonderful movie. Russell Crowe was amazing. Peter Fonda as the crusty old Bounty Hunter was spectacular. Fantastic soundtrack, too.

Definitely one to buy/download when it hits HD.

To generate "Word of Mouth"

Generally, when studios do this, they feel they have a great product, and want to get the early word out there to get the ball rolling. The big studio blockbusters like Spiderman, Transformers etc, dont need to do this since they sell themselves.

How does it rate when compared to Tombstone? That's my favorite modern western.

Not even close to Tombstone. It's a little bit different too in tone. It's more of a character piece.

I think GOCHIEFS is right. It's not nearly as "bubble gum" as Tombstone. It's more about relationships and pride.

You know, speaking of Tombstone, that flick has an interesting backstory. The original director got replaced early in filming. They then brought in the director or Rambo 2 and Cobra to finish it. The studio felt they had a bomb on their hands and dumped it without much press. Once it was released it became a word of mouth hit and then later got an even bigger audience on home video.


I even read a story ayear or so ago about how Kurt Russell himself had "Ghost Directed" the film and was the true director of it.

I'm cool with a more character driven story. Especially with good actors.

I'll see it either way.

IMO, of course.

Tombstone is one of the best "Guy Movies" of all time.

I lived in the valley for 18 years and there are tons of great places to eat. THE BEST Mexican food is found at Carolina's at 11th Street and Mohave. This is in the barrio so go during the day with a friend if you're intimidated by that sort of thing.

I miss the restauants of Phoenix!

My favorite western, released right around the same time, was "Wyatt Earp.
Basically the same story, but far more gritty, and I think Quaid did 10x the job on Doc that Kilmer did.

So comparing the two, I see Tombstone as "bubble gum." It just seems far too polished and modernized compared to "Wyatt Earp."

Yea, Wyatt Earp got unfairly dumped on when it came out. Its actually a pretty good flick and a little more serious than Tombstone, but not quite as fun.

Saw the movie this evening.
It's good, but I can't see myself rushing out to buy the video when it's available.

Without going into spoilers, there were just some situations in the movie that strained my "suspension of disbelief". The actors were very good and I enjoyed the interaction between them. There were just some things in the movie that made me go . . . "nah, that wouldn't happen."

3.5 out of 5

Confessions of Guilty Pleasure by Oldandslow...

I love westerns and will see 3:10 to Yuma this weekend...

Thought some might be interested in "my favorite" westerns of all time...

20. Serenity - Go ahead, argue that it isn't a western - you would be wrong.
19. The Man who Shot Liberty Valance - John Wayne, James Stewart, Vera Miles - a character piece that was more about character than guns.
18. The Ox Bow Incident - Hang those rustlers. A Henry Fonda Classic
17. Outlaw Josie Wales. Clint's been done wrong. He means to correct it.
16. The Big Country - Gregory Peck and Jean Simmons sizzle.
15. 3 burials of Melquiades Estrada. Damn, TL Jones was good in this. and I don't like TLJ.
14. The Wild Bunch - It's the end of the west. Outlaws look for one last score. Peckinpah is at his best. So are Holden and Borgnine.
13. High Noon - The townspeople are cowards. Gary Cooper isn't.
12. Treasure of Seirra Madre - Humphrey Bogart trying to get rich.
11. Shane - "Shane, Come back Shane!!!" Sorry kid, he's dead.
10. Open Range - Robert Duvall rocks.
9. Last of the Mohicans - Clannad (a Celtic Group) sang the background music (I will find you). They used Cherokee words rather than words from NE Indian tribes. Since it was shot in North Carolina, I guess that makes it OK. Very good movie though.
8. The Shootist. John Wayne at his very best, imo.
7. Once upon a time in the west. Leone directs Fonda. Great movie
6. The Good, the Bad, The Ugly. Leone directs Clint Eastwood. Another Great Movie
5.Just a few dollars more. Leane directs Eastwood and Van Cleef. Outlaw/bounty hunter movie
4. Dances with Wolves. I absolutely love everything about this movie except the ending. I even have a critique published explaining why the ending doesn't make sense, is insulting to Indians and whites, and ultimately the viewing audience.
3. Little Big Man. Dustin Hoffman is brilliant in this movie. Social satire at its best.
2. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. A postmodern western. Reflects how fractured/alienated/cynical we truly are.
1. Unforgiven. Best.Western.Ever.

Great list. But i wish people would include the original "Lonesume Dove" when they talk about great Westerns. Yes it was made for TV, but damn its so good. Duvall and TLJ were magic together.


BTW, Whats your beef with the Dances with Wolves ending? Just the last few minutes or the whole last act when the white man arrives??

I really love Lonesome Dove...but it isn't a "movie" in the classic sense. TV doesn't count.

The last few minutes of DWW's ending has serious flaws. First, Dunbar's explanation that the "whites would never stop looking for him" and he was protecting the Lakota by leaving is silly. The white's were not going to stop coming after the Lakota regardless of whether he was there are not. He knew that and, I suspect, so did they. The film cheats the audience by leading it to the "romantic happily ever after, you and me against the world" conclusion.

A much better and more palatable ending would have been for one of the pair (either Costner or Mary McConnell) to have died fighting the whites and the other to have remained with the Lakota.

Understood, the ending was somewhat "Hollywoodized" :)
