Has anyone seen this yet? Please let us know.

And may I say, that while Peter O'Toole was great in "Venus", I think Forrest Whittaker definitely deserved the Oscar.

An SWWB member didn't like it at all.
He found the final gunfight pointless(?).

When does it come out?

Yeah I hope Peter will pull a Henry Fonda and win for once.

Really?

According to IMDB. There's a lot of advertising for it too, they seem hopeful it will be  a success.

Hopefully it will bomb terribly.

But I doubt it will. It will be a moderate success.
They might get a decent percentage of the young generation (The only people who count when making $) into the theatres due to the stars but they won't get masses of kids.


It's up to the adults to make it a success.

Why are you hoping it will fail Firecracker? You think it sucks?

 For selfish reasons.


Right now the western is in the anal of the world.
Nobody will make one for fear of it being a failure.

This is good.

Fear makes people cautious.
When somebody is cautious of what their doing, more often than not, they will triumph.


If this is a mega hit the studious will make more in a hurry. They'll churn as much crap (watered down, pg-13 tom foolery) as they can to make a quick buck.

Plus, the remakes score will suck. ;D

Awful cynical of you. And how many great Westerns have there been in the last ten+ years huh?

It's all opinionated but I thought Open Range and The Proposition was great.

I'd rather have 1 great western every ten years than have ten shitty one's every two.

"Tears of the Black tiger" was another good one.

Strongly disagree. It's not like every single Western will be horrible, there would be some great ones, and some that are at least good as entertainment. There have been a lot of crap Westerns like "American Outlaws" made under the current "system" of minimal production anyway, so I'm sure what your point is?

I do think that there's no guarantee that this film will be a hit (but I've said this before), "American Outlaws" was heavily promoted when it first came out and it completely tanked. I also remember seeing a lot of ads for "Open Range".
