Bad Company (1972)  - 4/5 

A different type of western I caught last night on TCM, but a very good one.  In 1863, teenager Drew Dixon is sent west by his family to avoid being conscripted into the army during the Civil War.  He meets up with Jake Rumsey, a young man who leads a gang of young men out on their own just trying to get by.  A 70s western if I ever saw one that tries to show the not so glamorous life living in the Wild West.  Very good overall.

This one might be interesting.

Very good anti-western with an excellent Jeff Bridges as the 2nd lead. 8/10

I didn't like it all that much, too boringly revisionist for me.

Caught the better part of this over the summer on tv but its pacig put me to sleep (konked out around the time  SPOILERS half the gang is plugged SPOILERS).
That isn't a bad thing! It's just one of those films that takes its time.
I'll catch up with it one day.

For what I saw though...

7/10
