Blu-Ray Reviews: John Wayne’s Rio Lobo & Big Jake Arrive On Blu-Ray, But Fail To Dazzle

2 October 2011 2:07 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

John Wayne holds a very dear place in my film fandom – it was his films, and his Westerns particularly that I remember most from my very early childhood. Watching them with grandfathers on a Sunday afternoon, I’d come to welcome films like The Searchers, Shane and True Grit as part of my life, and I still count The Quiet Man as one of my favourite of all time, and I continue to base my idealised vision of male heroism on his wide shoulders.

A lot of Wayne’s films will forever be cruelly classified as too similar, and I suppose there is a very pressing argument that you know what to expect from Wayne, especially in his Western work. But that isn’t to say they aren’t still great film experiences.

Two of the great man’s lesser known films – Rio Lobo and Big Jake – have just been released on blu-ray, »
