Crop And Save
One of the finest westerns I have ever seen!
I don't know if "Tombstone" was intended to be a blockbuster, but it quickly turned into one. Being a lover of good westerns and saddened that there are so few made anymore, I was thrilled when I first saw "Tombstone" in the theater. I now own it on video and DVD. As for the work of the actors, Val Kilmer steals the show. He was absolutely fantastic as Doc Holliday. He was funny and tragic at the same time and really made you believe in his relationship with Wyatt Earp. Kurt Russell was brilliant as Wyatt Earp. In a role that could easily have been overplayed, Russell makes Wyatt very human and not as stoic as history would have you think. Powers Boothe and Michael Biehn are excellent as Curly Bill and Johnny Ringo and are both vital to the movie and plot. Though some of the picture is historically correct, most of it is not. But it is a tremendous action picture complete with the usual "love interest", (handled perfectly by the beautiful Dana Delaney) great moments of humor and tragedy and a moving final scene between Doc and Wyatt. This movie is tewn times better than Kevin Costner's "Wyatt Earp." I can't tell you how much I loved this film and how highly I recommend it.
Classic western with strong performances.
When it comes to classic westerns, add "Silverado" to the list. The story is a great one, but the movie is made more powerful by the performances of it's cast. The plot, while seemingly simple, is made more intricate as there ae really about 4 lead characters, each with his own "mission." Scott Glenn is superb as the cowboy riding to meet his brother so they can travel to California. Kevin Kline is outstanding as Paden. In a part that could have been overplayed, Kline is brilliant in his portrayal of a man in search of a place to put down roots. Not outdone by either is Danny Glover, as the man seeking to reunite with his family only to find tragedy. And Kevin Costner is hilarious as Glenn's brother, a wild fast-gun shootist. This movie has everything you could ask for; adventure, drama, humor and terrific scenery. I highly recomment this for fans of the western genre.
The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976)
One of the best movies of Clint's astonishing career!
Clint Eastwood is a man known for fantastic, action-packed movies. "The Outlaw Josey Wales" may just be his best effort at entertainment ever. The movie is powerful and teaches us so many lessons about loyalty, bravery, truth and justice. It is a movie that not only has a lot of daring adventure, but it also has a great deal of humor (Chief Dan George) and a well played love interest. Eastwood is one of the kings, a star to be admired forever. He doesn't dissapoint with Josey Wales.
The Sixth Sense (1972)
A show ahead of its' time.
Not everyone has forgotten this short lived tv show. I remember it as very suspenseful and thought provoking. I was a junior in high school when it appeared and my classmates and I thought it was great. Unfortunately, not enough of the country felt likewise and it was cancelled quickly. However, it was intriguing to think that esp was possible. The show was well done but ahead of its' time. Today it would go over very well, as did the movie of the same name.
