Kevin Costner movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Dances with Wolves,’ ‘Field of Dreams,’ ‘JFK’
Kevin Costner has returned to the western genre which has so often brought him success. It’s not feature films this time but with the new television series “Yellowstone,” currently bringing excellent ratings to the Paramount Network. Westerns have been good to Costner at the movies, with his most successful winning him two Oscars as producer and director of “Dances with Wolves” in 1990.

Costner almost had a career that ended before it really started. After very small roles in a number of big films such as Ron Howard’s “Night Shift” and the Jessica Lange vehicle “Frances” Costner then got what could have been a star-making role. However, his role as a suicide victim in flashback scenes for “The Big Chill” was cut by director Lawrence Kasdan. The same director wou would later make it up to Costner by casting him in a showy role in the film “Silverado.”

Hour of the Gun

It’s the one saga of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral that puts Western legend into proper perspective as to the nature of money, power and the law: Edward Anhalt’s vision is of a gangland turf war with sagebrush and whiskey bottles. James Garner is a humorless Wyatt Earp, matched by Jason Robards’ excellent Doc Holliday. It’s one of John Sturges’ best movies.

Travis Fimmel to play Wyatt Earp in new History anthology series

THR is reporting that Vikings star Travis Fimmel is reuniting with History for an as-yet-untitled anthology project, which explore “iconic sinners and anti-heroes throughout history”. The first instalment will tell the story of Wyatt Earp, with Fimmel taking on the role of the Old West gunslinger as we delve into Earp’s days in Dodge City through to his time as a lawman in Tombstone, Arizona – and of course the famous Gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

“I’ve always been fascinated with what motivates people’s transgressions and the scandalous journey into infamy,” said Fimmel, who is also executive producing, as well as writing the first episode. “I wanted to re-examine stories people think they know without the rose-colored glasses of Hollywood and let the audience decide for themselves if people like Wyatt Earp were sinners or victims of life circumstances. When it came time to bring this project together I knew History,

The King and Four Queens

Clark Gable is still sufficiently frisky in this late career western to attract four well-chosen frontier women -- who in this case happen to be a quartet of robbers' wives, sitting on a rumored mountain of ill-gotten gains.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

We still love John Ford's bitter-sentimental look back at the lost Myth of the West. John Wayne and James Stewart are at least thirty years too old for their roles, but everything seems to be happening in a foggy reverie, so what's the difference, Pilgrim?  Great comedy and Lee Marvin's marvelous villain, plus the assertive 'print the Legend' message that's been hotly debated ever since.

What I Watched, What You Watched #219

This was a rather well-rounded week of movie watching for me as I covered several moments in cinema's history with four films. The first was this weekend's new release, The Best Man Holiday (read my review here), but then I jumped back in time with Kino's latest Blu-ray release of F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu on Blu-ray, which I will be posting a review for later this week. Then, I switched over to TCM and watched John Sturgess' take on the Wyatt Earp story in 1957's Gunfight at the O.K. Corral starring Burt Lancaster as Earp and Kirk Douglas as Doc Holliday. Having grown up first seeing this story told in 1993's Tombstone, I'm not sure any version of the story will ever appeal to me as much as that one does as I loved Val Kilmer's Holliday, but also love Kurt Russell as Earp and Powers Boothe as Curly Bill,

Kirk Douglas may have brandished a six shooter in films like "Gunfight at the O.K. Corral" and "Man Without a Star," but he wishes America wouldn't follow his big-screen example. "I often played the good cowboy on screen, riding in to save the day," the 96-year old Douglas writes in a Huffington Post opinion piece. "Now, everybody thinks he is a cowboy too. That frightens me. We have become a cowboy country with too many guns." Douglas acknowledges that he has guns in his own homes -- souvenirs from his days as

Kirk, 96, has worked in movies like "Spartacus", "Gunfight at the O.K. Corral" and "Champion".

"It gives you much more of a sense of counting the years. I'm coming into, I would definitely say, my third act. I have my father, who I admire so much in how he's conducted his life and his third act. It makes you much more conscious of the days and years," ShortList magazine quoted Michael, 68, as saying.

'Walking Dead' Recap: Episode 3.08, 'Made To Suffer'

by Kat Rosenfield

We can't say they didn't warn us: in the week preceding last night's episode of "The Walking Dead", executive producer and showrunner Glen Mazzara promised a mid-season finale that would blow the ever-lovin' minds of fans everywhere, full of action and angst and a frankly enormous cliffhanger. And considering the bar set by Season 2 — first with the mid-season shocker of Zombie Sophia, and then with the barn burner of a finale that included the actual burning of an actual barn — most of the show's avid viewers were coming at this one with expectations ramped up to eleven.

Did it deliver? Well, we'll get there. But we will say this: five seconds into the episode, someone is already screaming.

Spoilers Ahead.
