I like The Great Silence a lot. It's one of my favorite westerns. O0

Well it doesn`t fit my top 10 of favourite westerns but still it`s great film and as I said the ending is something else  ;)

Watched the other day one of my latest DVDs,Big Jake.Not a classic but still fun to watch.Pretty solid John Wayne-western.

"The Horse Soldiers" (1959)
-John Wayne, William Holden

Plot:IMDB
A Union Cavalry outfit is sent behind confederate lines in strength to destroy a rail/supply center. Along with them is sent a doctor who causes instant antipathy between him and the commander. The secret plan for the mission is overheard by a southern belle who must be taken along to assure her silence. The Union officers each have different reasons for wanting to be on the mission.

Phantoms Review: Solid well made John Wayne adventure. Plenty of action and a good story (based on true events) and fine performances from the stars.

I bought this years ago and I watch often. Eric McCormack in one of his previous roles before Will & Grace. Wearing a beard and looking not so thin, he is surprisingly good as the town boss, Colonel Clay Mosby.

A thing that always get me while watching it, is he hasn't the physical attributes we are used to see in the famous westerns anti heros ... he isn't tall or very strong but yet, he has a fascinating screen presence. In fact, Eric is very good playing tough characters. I liked the short part he played in "Dead like Me" and in "The Sisters".

This series is amazing, unfortunately there were only those two seasons. The second one (Outlaw Years) is my favorite.

I bought the two seasons separately but they have the complete series collection.
Everyone that enjoys westerns, should check this out.

"Escape From Fort Bravo" (1953)
-William Holden

Plot: IMDB
In the Civil War, Fort Bravo is a prison camp for captured southerners. Its isolated position and unfriendly natives make escape almost impossible, but anyone who tries is always brought back by by-the-book Captain Roper. A group of prisoners hatch a plot to get away by bringing in a southern belle to distract the Captain. The plan seems to work, but the inhospitable desert, the murderous Indians, and - most importantly - the Colonel apparently wronged in love mean that this is only the start.

Phantom's Review: This is a great movie.Plenty of action, suspense and fine performances from the stars. A classic.

I watched Ed Harris`Appaloosa.It was very well made,got great acting by Harris and Viggo Mortensen and very good score but still I felt that the film could`ve been greater.
I think there could`ve been a bit more action,gunfights and such but than again maybe it was not meant to be as action filled western.It`s more like western drama.
I´m not big fan of Renèe Zellweger but she was good in this film and made very easy for me to hate her character..so I guess she can act after all  ::)

And I can't say I "watched" because I've stopped in the part where Butch takes the girl for a ride on a bike. I'm finding this movie very boring!
Any of you have seen it? Is it worth my time keep watching it? ??? Sorry my question, i know it's considered a classic but i'm not enjoying it. :(

No need to be sorry even though it`s not usual to dislike this particular masterpiece but opinions varies  ;) As you may have guessed I highly recommend you to watch the film through and focus in"little things" like great acting by Newman and Redford and all in all their chemistry in the film.

The bikeride scene is very 70`s and a bit pointless but it`s just a little hiccup in the film and after awhile you find yourself humming/singing:"Rain drops keep falling on my head;D

I watched the other night A Man Called Horse once again.Still pretty good film but I guess I´ve seen it too many times.It felt a bit dated and slow at times.However I would like to see the sequel The Return Of A Man Called Horse.I´ve not seen that one too many times.
Second sequel was crap if I´m not mistaken  ???

The entire first season of "Have Gun-Will Travel". What a great show.

"The Great Silence" (1968)

Plot: IMDB
A mute gunslinger faces off against a gang of bounty hunters in the great blizzard of 1899, and a grim, tense struggle unfolds.


Phantom's Review: Action packed spaghetti western with interesting characters and one of the most shocking and unhappy endings I have ever seen.

Actually I bought it along with Dog Day Afternoon but it's a western so I'm posting here.

I like that movie so much. First time I watched I was a Clint fan already but I thought Franco Nero so attractive (he has beautiful eyes) and the story very interesting. It has been long time i saw it but the scene that stucked in my mind was when he has the fingers cut off in that beating.

While searching some opinions in IMDB i crossed with this:

Out of these two who do you think is badder?


Judging by the replies, the guys are just joking around. Those of you who has an imdb account could go there and give them the right answer.  ;D
