Three Amigos was on MGM the other night, and having not seen it in a long time I set the DVR. Classic.

I saw that one was on Amazon Prime yesterday and thought about watching it. How disturbing? Will I have nightmares? If I have nightmares can Travis use your bed to comfort me?

I would like to know why snake hated it.

The talk here got me curious. I caught most of it in and out of sleep last night. I'm glad I was watching on my (little) phone. I thought the dialog hearkened back a bit to True Grit, but some of the gore was pretty extreme. I don't see a need to see it again.

The Last Great American Western Turns 25

A quarter-century after its release, the world of Unforgiven seems frighteningly familiar. It was once hard to imagine that the Western would ever go out of fashion. As epitomized by the novels of Zane Grey, the movies of John Wayne, and television shows such as The Lone Ranger and Gunsmoke, the genre was a fictionalized reflection of American history, one of our few truly indigenous art forms. Today, the Western has all but faded from popular culture, perhaps paralleling the dissipation of our frontier mentality and the loss of our connection to the land in an increasingly urbanized society. The traditional Western narrative, with its archetypes of good and evil, (“white hats” and “black hats”) seems far too simplistic and idealistic for an increasingly diverse and multiethnic society formed by the upheaval of the 1960s and the political scandals of the 1970s. The genre seems not just out of fashion, but outdated, a relic of the irretrievable American past.

Tracker is pretty good. It's not set in the U.S. but it plays like a western.

In many countries that's a beheading offense.

Tried to watch Hateful 8. Got bored with it. I'm kind of sick of Quentin Tarantino.
