Very Slow Start!!!
I was not that impressed with the first episode.I was expecting a lot. However, course language is no substitute for good writing. The required background information is a necessary evil, and the intended understatement of things to come started to get to me. The second episode showed a "little color" building on the conflict between Bullock & Sweringen. I am looking forward to that development. The understatement of Keith Carradine's Wild Bill Hickock seems to fit, though: in the mold of Clint Eastwood's "Josey Wales" or Gregory Peck's "Jimmie Ringo" from "The Gunfighter".(A MUST SEE)!!!! The third just finished, and I like the addition of Powers Booth. He is a very good character actor and will stir things up. The jury is still out as to longevity, but I will give it a few more episodes "to pan out."
One on One (1977)
Good Movie, Benson must be a natural athlete!
The movie is dated, but I still enjoy it. I guess I remember watching it the first time. The whole coming of age thing, growing up, etc.
What has really impressed me is Robby Benson's development over the years. He must be a good athlete: basketball, hockey, running, all seem to come naturally to him. I don't see the telltale back shots of doubles.
I enjoyed his acting and would like to see more. The last I heard he was teaching at USC. No not that one! The first one! The real one! The University of South Carolina in Columbia.
I would like to see what he could do with a mature role now.
A great way to listen to a movie!
I have just listened to the guitar duel from "Crossroads" and was inspired again. I enjoyed this movie and wait impatiently for it to be released on DVD. Ralph Macchio is the next Dick Clark in the "ageless" category. Joe Seneca is a rock steady character actor who will eventually be more appreciated. I am biased because of my love for the Blues, but the soundtrack is still excellent.
A magnificent movie!
This movie blasted me in the theater! I had heard from friends & relatives how beautiful the Badlands were. The cinematography of this film brought that beauty directly at me. The script was concise & smart. I enjoy scripts that require my attention to there detail.
Most of all, the actors excelled in their parts. Val Kilmer handled the transitions perfectly: from disinterested agent to nonbeliever to skeptic to reluctant believer to full realization without a seam! I really like Fred Ward and hated his character in this movie. Sam Shephard provided his consistent great performance. I think it was the first time I had seen Graham Greene. He turned in a fabulous performance.
This film insures that you question everything you learned from a textbook. It brings you in, shows you another viewpoint, illustrates the other side of the story, and demands that you think before you take a side. I paid to see this film twice in the theater and bought the DVD when it was released. I watch it regularly.
If I had to pick another film that had similar power, it would be "In Pursuit Of Honor" with Don Johnson & Craig Sheffer.
