Very Good. This was an old school recommendation by one of our most consistent followers Grino that slipped through the cracks for me. I was too busy reading comic books and playing kick the can to be interested in an Oscar winning Western, but now I’m in a much different stage in my life to appreciate this very good movie.
First off how can you not like a bad a$$ republican like Clint Eastwood? The story is about a no nonsense outlaw coming out of retirement to bring vengeance for a big bounty to a couple of punks the beat up a woman real bad. You have a solid story that moves along at a good pace with some serious star power which the Mobile Movie Man always likes. Now I’m not a big fan of westerns, although I do love Young Guns, and Tomb Stone. I guess its probably the same reason I really don’t like country music either. I just don’t get it. Maybe it’s because I went to college and didn’t bang my father’s sister. Either way this movie is brilliant on every level and it’s a no brainier that this won for best picture. Most of you I’m sure have already seen this, but if there are any of you out there that have not seen this…..you are doing yourself a disservice by not seeing this. So definitely check this one out and thank me later. Thanks again Grino for the solid recommendation and please keep the good one coming.
