Yep, though our main focus is movies we do still do an occasional video game review here. And […]
While watching Hostiles (check that review out here), I began to think about the state of the Western genre. […]
Can we really bring back the Western. There have been some good ones in recent years and this […]
Well the Oscars have come and gone and I’m still bitter Arrival wasn’t named best picture. But the good news is the summer movie season is fast approaching. In fact, apparently it starts in March now with Logan this week and King Kong next week. If only actual summer started in March…
I love bank robbery movies and I love westerns. As it turns out, putting them together is also pretty great.
Hell or High Water is about two brothers who hatch a plan to save their family’s ranch after their mother dies by robbing the bank that holds the loan for the land.
The original movie is my favorite western, so this one had a lot to live up to. But does it?
The Magnificent Seven follows a group of outlaws (led by Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt) who band together to protect a small town from an evil baron who wants the land the town sits on and will stop at nothing to get it.
I’m almost positive Quentin Tarantino is a little messed up in the head. But boy is he brilliant.
The Hateful Eight is the latest film from the aforementioned director and is about a group of bounty hunters who get stuck in a cabin during a blizzard. One of them is transporting a prisoner worth a lot of money. Things start off fine, but when bad things start happening, it becomes clear not everyone is who they say they are.
DVD movie reviews are occasional posts that review recent DVD releases that I did not review while they were in theaters.
After having it recommended to me on several occasions, I figured a slow Sunday was a good time to check out Slow West.
Slow West is about a teenage boy (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who is traveling through the American old west looking for his lost love. Along the way he meets an outlaw (Michael Fassbender) who serves as a protector for the boy. They have to fend off all sorts of dangers of the old west, including everything from nature to Native Americans to bounty hunters.
