I haven't actually seen Posse, but have been meaning to. Is it worth a look Firecracker?


To be honest, I haven't seen it.
I saw it at my local rental store and will be checking it out soon.
The reason I asked for you to add it was because the general concensus of the film was mostly positive (all the reviews I've seen say it's a "good movie").

Yeah, it deserves to be on the list. It is a western. Thanks for telling me. It completely slipped my mind.

Dead Man, closely followed by Unforgiven, with The Proposition at a distant third. I still haven't seen the new 3:10, so I have no idea where that would rank obviously. As far as Dead Man, it's a great story of a hapless schmuck who only becomes free when becoming an accidental outlaw. I think it has a lot of heart, but I understand that a Jarmusch feel good story with an eerie, haunting score by NY (polarizing to some) isn't going to go over too well with the masses.

Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre. What did you think of the script?

I think DEAD MAN is brilliant Tuco! I love the beautiful black and white photography and I also think it's Jarmusch's masterpiece. Johnny Depp is outstanding here. He proved to me he'd be a great western film actor with this performance.

I love Niel Young's score. It set the tone and mood of the film which was needed. It captures the atmosphere wonderfully.

You also gotta love Robert Mitchum's cameo. He is absolutely hilarious. And he being one of my favorite actor's of all time, I was loving it the first time I viewed this.

I was at the rental store and had POSSE in my hand but decided to check out "2001 Maniacs" instead.

Forgive me Sad

Oh, it's no problem buddy! I actually ordered Posse today after we talked about it. I've been dying to see it. I hear it's a very stylistic western that homages the spaghetti western. Also, Woody Strode makes an appearence just like he did in THE QUICK AND THE DEAD which I love! I can't wait to see it.

  3:10 to Yuma for me.  I saw it for a second time this week and liked it even more this time around.  Followed closely by Tombstone and Open Range.

Good man! It is even better the second time. I agree with you there. The film is well done, and I commend James Mangold who is turning into one of my favorite director's. I've loved his work thus far.
