The Wild West, with a twist....




Oh yes.

I went to see it on opening day.
The boy went with me.
We LOVED it.

As soon as Ron gets back from DC,
we'll go see it again.

A movie hasn't thrilled me like this in a long time.

It had everything I like in a movie.
The Wild West.
I long for westerns on the big screen.

The plot was a bit, as Roger Ebert wrote,
cockamamie.
Which is perfect!
That's what the movies are all about, in my humble opinion.
They should be LARGER than life.
Fun.
Action packed.
Exciting.
They should fill your vision
and let you escape.
Inspire.

I laughed.
I cried (I'm a wimp).
I jumped out of my seat.
It was fantastic!

And then there's Daniel Craig.
In western wear.
Unshaven.
Enough said.

If you want my advice,
go see this movie.
It's the perfect summer blockbuster.
I hope it rocks in the theaters.
So that they make a sequel.
The character development was such that
you'll want to find out more about them.

I could go on and on,
but I don't want to spoil the plot for you.
Just go see it,
and have fun.
Tell them Mama D sent you.

P.S. Of course, I had to wear my favorite belt buckle to the movie...

I'm a bit mannish about my movies, sometimes -- I like guns and swords and WESTERNS. Yes. I really REALLy want to see this. Perhaps I'll take myself out to it tonight!

Thanks for the review!

I'm with you, sweets. I like the mannish action films.

You really should go tonight. It's such a fun movie. Wish I were there (or you were here) so we could go together!
