Nobody wore pajamas in the 40’s?
Daniel Day Lewis has retired
Yes they did also in films of the 1940s EVERYONE wearing pajamas to go to the bed.
I record and watch every old western if I’ve never seen it before. I have about 6 on dvr. I found this obscure religious channel that also plays old westerns. Old white religious people must like westerns too. Anyways, I’m not religious but I like the channel
I don’t think I saw this new 7 with Denzel. I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait. Lol. For cable tv that is.
Guys used to have real jobs and got discovered. I think McQueen got his masothelioma (sp?) from doing sand blasting.
William Shatner is an accomplished horseman.
Even Pierce Brosnan was a circus performer before becoming the cheesy actor we know him to be
I think you get some credibility as an actor when you know who you are supposed to be portraying
Ward Bond a great character actor, also Slim Pickens and also Walter Brennan in many old Westerns and yes watching them they LOOK like they are IN the Old West Era.
I look on Google to see who is in this remake of "The Magnificent Seven" and those I know Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke and Vincent D'Onofrio the others I have never even heard of in this film.
Not seen "Open Range" but I like Robert Duvall in EVERYTHING, Kevin Costner is okay. Recent I watch "Unforgiven" made in 1992 and directed and starring Clint Eastwood also Gene Hackman, Morgan Freeman and Richard Harris in this film, a Revisionist Western and excellent, I am not a great fan of Westerns in general but I like all with Clint Eastwood and he is in and directed in 1973 one of my favourite films "High Plains Drifter" which I think is a very good companion piece film to "Unforgiven"
This the original trailer "High Plains Drifter"
This the original trailer "Unforgiven"
Unforgiven, revisionist western???? WTF???? That movie's closer to authentic western portrayal than almost any previous Hollywood western.
I liked the remake but then again I don't attempt to compare remakes with the original because I know they're not going to be the same. I see them as what they are, two completely different films.
Well yes but "Unforgiven" is described as a Revisionist Western in that Sub Genre.
Its a very unglamourous view of the west. Miserable . dirty and a bit dark. I think you can call it revisionist compared to other westerns.Certainly westerns from the 50s and 60s. I am sure that it was pretty accurate in its portrayal.
I think that Unforgiven is one of those films that everyone respects but doesnt take to their hearts. A bit like Apocalypse Now which was a brilliant series of set pieces but lacking a heart.
If you compare Unforgiven to Open Range I would prefer Open Range because it has a heart.
If that makes sense ?
