Was it that "China 9, Liberty 37" thing with Warren Oates?  I've heard of it.

Now, to get the picture onto this thread. . .

Thanks, Groggy. BTW, did you read the Alex Cox piece? He had this to say about The Wild Bunch: " This was western as critique of the Vietnam war. Its protagonists dressed in US army uniforms and provoked massacres of civilians. Invading Mexico, trying to do the right thing, they racked up still greater inventories of innocent dead."

Are you gonna let that pass without a response?

Yes that is exactly what it is. I mentioned it in an earlier post here on this thread. It was ok. I would say it is just below average but it is worth a view. If your a fan of Peck Groggy perhaps you should check it out. I could send you a copy if you like

BUT BE WARNED, I have a crappy pan and scan copy. But since you would be getting it for free I dont think it is something to complain about. Smiley

I saw Kid Vengeance and it was pretty bad. Just not as bad as C 9 L 27.

I would say it is worse. I would also say "Boot Hill" is worse too.

Nothin', I guess. So you knew that TWB was actually a critique of the Vietnam War, eh? Well, it was news to me, but I guess Alex Cox knows what he's talking about. After all, he's made some of the greatest movies ever, so his understanding of the films of others must certainly be unparalleld. I really like the way he uses the term "invaded" to slam dunk his analysis. Yeah, the Wild Bunch "invaded" Mexico; a dozen guys qualifies as an invasion. That Alex Cox: look up the word "genius" in the dictionary, and you're sure to find his face there.
