I thought Dennis Quaid was the best part of this film. He made me laugh.

Yeah, Dennis was very good in the film. Did you like it overall Kevin?

Yeah I liked it, a little long, but it was good.

I'm happy you liked it. I've always thought this film got undeserved criticism.

Yeah, like a Razzie for Kevin Cosner. He wasn't that bad.

Both good films. But I thought the casting in Tombstone was second to none.

Funny thing though, Kevin Costner was attached to playing Wyatt Earp in "Tombstone" first before Kurt Russell.

Tombstone came after Wyatt Earp right?

No, it came before. That's one of the reason's why "Wyatt Earp" flopped. Nobody wanted to see another film based on Wyatt Earp so shortly after "Tombstone" was released.

I see, I wonder why Hollywood insists on make the same movies? They do that a lot lately.

I have missed both last ones. My favourite is HOTG, which I don't think it drags a little bit: it kept me on the brink of the chair the whole time. The Ford has the usual defects any Ford has, but it has some strong visuals which can compete with anything Ford ever made.

Well, let's be fair: "Tombstone" wasn't all that successful either. It made about $60 million, which isn't bad, but even in the nineties was far short of a blockbuster.

I prefer this to "Tombstone." I think it gets a bad rap from time to time but it's the closest to reality with the Wyatt Earp story.

Not really. It's just as inaccurate as Tombstone, albeit in different and generally less obvious ways. It's a decent movie with some strong-points (I think Costner is probably the best screen Wyatt Earp, Quaid is a fun Doc and more realistic than Kilmer's version) but Tombstone is far more entertaining.
