Red Ryder 1944 VS Star Trek 2009

7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I hadn't seen a Red Ryder movie in over 60 years, until tonight. A good plot concerns which of two towns is selected as County Seat. They didn't have ACORN in 1895 but they did have bad guys who'd do the dirty work for the politicians. A tenderfoot and his buddy get caught in the middle, and an Indian boy almost saves the day.

Unlike 2009's plot-free Star Trek, this movie is strictly film-it-quick-and cheap. But it works very well, and compares well to high tech 2009 films where things like plot and story are old fashioned ideas, and jump-around camera work backed-up with intense loud music deceives the audience into thinking somethings's going on.

Not to give the plot away, but there is no marshal in Marshal of Reno, and none of it takes place in Reno. It doesn't matter so much remembering there's no Star Trek in Star Trek (2009), just lots of loud noise. Give me horses and guns any day.
