    Review: 'Good For Nothing' A Straight-Faced Modern Western, No Gimmicks Allowed | The Playlist

    "Good For Nothing" ends up being quite modest, though that's probably for the best, as there are no attempts to "subvert" or "exploit" the conventions of the genre. Without direct callbacks, "Good For Nothing" shows confidence in crafting its story, and even allowing some jokes to emerge organically. One such moment involves a standing shootout between two inept gunmen standing on opposite sides of a creek. As they repeatedly misfire, a group of bandits on horses watch silently, completely unconcerned with the bullets flying in all directions. Why interrupt, they ask. It's best to just enjoy the show, as straightforward as it is. [B]

    It was really well done. I liked it alot. I can only hope the viking mini series they are planning thanks to the success of H&M is just as good because it sounds awesome.

    It seems some native americans are upset with the new Lone Ranger movie. New Tonto, Familiar Feelings for Native Americans

    I can't find a link, but it seems the film was shot on the Navajo Reservation and a tribe in Oklahoma made Depp an honorary member. If someone can help out with a link to these, I thank you in advance.


    he we go, it was the Commanche tribe. http://articles.nydailynews.com/2012...y-member-tonto

    Hatfields and McCoys Blu-ray review

    "Hatfields & McCoys" is a spectacular miniseries. If there's a fault it's that it's a bit overlong and repetitive in stretches and there are times when it's difficult to sort out the tertiary players who, though not front-and-center throughout the series, still shape the dynamics as much, if not sometimes more so, than the primary cast. But those minor complaints aside, this is riveting, remarkably well-made historical entertainment. The acting is superb, the cinematography wondrous, the direction steady, and the story absolutely captivating. This is the miniseries as polished and enthralling as ever, up there with the best of its kind, including "Roots," "Lonesome Dove," "Band of Brothers," and "The Stand." Sony's Blu-ray release of "Hatfields & McCoys" features dazzling video and audio. Sadly, the extras are rather slim. Nevertheless, this is one of the year's better Blu-ray releases and is a must-own. Highly recommended.
    Still haven't watched this, but it's on the DVR.

    McBASTARD'S MAUSOLEUM: Blu-ray Review: A BULLET FOR THE GENERAL (1967)

    This is a riveting watch and comes recommended not just for fans of the spaghetti westerns but of all westerns, it's right up here with A Fistful of Dynamite and The Wild Bunch. 4 Outta 5
    McBASTARD'S MAUSOLEUM: Blu-ray Review: DJANGO KILL... IF YOU LIVE, SHOOT! (1967)

    Giulio Questi's Django Kill... If You Live, Shoot! is most definitely not on par with the Sergio Leone iconic spaghetti westerns but is definitely a blast of perverse and gritty western action laying somewhere between Alejandro Jodorowski's mind-bending El Topo and Sergio Corbucci's brutal Django. A gritty and slightly surreal spaghetti western revenger that offers up more than a handful of things you won't be expecting even by today's standards it's pretty shocking stuff, a spaghetti western that will definitely appeal to the exploitation enthusiasts and another home-run for Blue Underground. 4 outta 5
    Gotta get both of these!

    OLDBOY Director Chan-wook Park in Talks to Helm Western THE BRIGANDS OF RATTLEBORGE | Collider

    Having recently completed his English-language directorial debut with the horror thriller Stoker (due out in March), Chan-wook Park is now looking to take the helm on a highly coveted script. Variety reports that Park is in talks to direct the Western The Brigands of Rattleborge. The script by S. Craig Zahler landed at the top of the 2006 Black List, but it’s been slow to come to fruition because of the story’s violent nature. Now the project has Park in negotiations with Red Granite Pictures onboard to fully finance and co-produce the film with Mythology Entertainment.

    The pic centers on a sheriff and a doctor who are out for revenge against a group of bandits who, under the cover of a torrential thunderstorm, robbed and terrorized the occupants of a small town. Park’s South Korean revenge tale Oldboy is a new classic, and everyone’s itching to get a look at the Nicole Kidman-fronted Stoker. The intense violence of Rattleborge will likely necessitate the casting of a major star, but that shouldn’t be a problem given Park’s clout. Hopefully things come together quickly so we can see Park’s take on the Western genre sooner rather than later.

    DEAD IN TOMBSTONE Trailer Featuring Danny Trejo, Anthony Michael Hall, and Mickey Rourke | Collider

    The first trailer for the shoot-em-up Western Dead in Tombstone has landed online. The film stars Danny Trejo as the leader of a gang of outlaws who frees his half-brother (Anthony Michael Hall) from prison in order to loot a mining town. The plan backfires when Hall double crosses Trejo and kills him. Trejo makes a deal with the devil (Mickey Rourke) and comes back from the dead to seek revenge. The trailer gives us exactly the kind of movie we expect, but I’m not so sure that’s a bad thing. It doesn’t look good by any means, but Dead in Tombstone seems like it could be a fun entry in the “bad movie marathon” genre.

    Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Directed by Roel Reine (The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption), the film also stars Dina Meyer. Dead in Tombstone will be released direct-to-DVD on December 31st.


    sweet.
