Wow… it’s hard to believe I’ve vanished out of the blogging world so much… I never, ever wanted to but figured this would happen once I got out of my daily routine… I did five posts a day every week for almost three years… yowza… : ( – well – I watched this movie today and totally loved it, so I thought I would try and put something together about it (and keep up on my typing skills). This movie is pretty new so there aren’t that many pics to accent this thing but it will probably be a short post anyway since it usually takes me about a month to translate a movie into a published treatise. Either way and whatever – this movie fucking rocked!I found this movie under the horror genre in iTunes and – while technically not a horror in any way – it’s really fucking gory when it wants to be and I even had one: gag moment and a few: squint my eyes and turn away from the TV a little moments – which is not an easy feat and I applaud whoever did the practical effects here!! MUY BUENO!!!! But that’s not really the intent of the story, I believe. This is a very good Western with a lot of very good Western moments – while I was watching it and thinking about maybe typing something up for it – I was think of things like: “The Proposition meets Django Unchained meets Tombstone meets whatever Hateful Eight will be about” but then I remembered that I don’t like thinking about things like that so I tried to let it go and get back to business.In a very small town out in the American Frontier, three people get abducted. The dutiful sheriff, his “back-up deputy”, one of the abductee’s crippled husband and a vain fop of a fellow head out to bring them back. There’s no pomp or circumstance to anything here and there’s barely ANY music (which I loved). There’s not a lot of skin and they do use some salty language but the thing to look out for here – if you have a weak stomach – things get pretty grisly from time to time… but there’s also an element of comedy that really surprised me. And Matthew Fox was fucking great! I’m glad to see him showing his face again. I know I’m also not a guy to show trailers very often but here you go, if you like. No real spoilers in this one.
The title of this post might be a little misleading – because it’s not the best movie ever but I really did love it. The end was a little clunky but everything else really worked – especially the dialogue. If you’re a fan of The Proposition you’ll probably really dig this thing.
