The Shootist (1976)

I never tire of this film. One of The Duke's greatest.  I would love to see Ron Howard direct Clint in one more western.  Not too late. Nope.

'The Magnificent Seven' (2016)
Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt

Plot: IMDB
With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue, the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns. As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.

Phantom's Review:
First let me say, I love the 1960 film staring Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen. It's one of my favorites. Now, having said that let me say..I LOVE THE NEW MOVIE! This is the most entertaining movie I have seen all year. Plenty of action, great acting and a good story and the nice thing is, while the bones of the story are the same as the 1960 film, it's mostly an original film. The actors all play different characters and the setting and villain are different. It's almost more of a companion piece to the 1960 film than a remake. If your a western fan , GO SEE THIS, you will love it. (and yes the classic M7 Theme music is heard over the ending credits).

I happened to catch this from the beginning Sunday night.  Glad I was able to view the original so soon after the remake.  Both are great.  Probably because of Brenner, McQueen, Bronson, Coburn, Vaugh and Wallach all working together I'd say the original is better but I love the remake, too.

Enjoyed seeing this again.  Hollywood rarely does originals justice but they did this one very well.

Great gift you got there Brian!  Im actually planning on upgrading to blu-ray for my Eastwood trilogy as well.  Along with the Rocky movies.  Using my Christmas money to get those.  I got the Rambo series on bluray for Christmas.  I usually dont buy blu-ray movies and I espicially usually dont buy them on blu-ray if I already own them on dvd.  But the Eastwood trilogy, The Rambo series, and The Rocky series are really the only ones I would re buy again and upgrade to blu-ray.

Thanks!  Love having/seeing these again but have to scope out where I can own the set that includes the original version of GBU because the expanded version, in my opinion, only serves as a distraction.   Otherwise, a very nice set and for a change I'm scoping out and enjoying the extras.  Well, except for the prologue that aired with the 1977 network television premiere of A Fistful Of Dollars, starring Harry Dean Stanton.

It's a tv series rather than a film but at the moment I'm enjoying re-runs of Johnny Ringo

Terror in a Texan Town
1958

A really good western that I hadn't seen before starring the always excellent Sterling Hayden..



Reminded me a little of Shane but actually quite an oddbeat western. Hayden plays a Swedish whaler who comes to Texas to claim his inheritence after his father is murdered.. In many ways this is quite an unconventional movie. Scripted by Dalton Trumbo who at that time was blacklisted so worked under a pseudonym.

Hayden speaks with a Swiss accent throughout and is really very good in this movie.. There are all the usual weastern conventions in place.. The outsider riding into town and galvanising the local toiwnspeople into standing up against the hoods who want to drive them out and claim there land..but the characters are all well written and rounded, theres a very unusual music score and the final showdown between a man with a six shooter and a man with a whaling harpoon is really cool..



Unusual and well made

I love the finger-wagging picture in its place. ;D

Hey that's a good thought. I would love to see Ron Howard and Clint work together. And a western movie. Ron is a very very good director and TV legend. Would be cool I think.
