RIO BRAVO, with Dino and The Duke. EL DORADO and RIO LOBO are both fun, but RIO BRAVO is a masterpiece -- my favorite Western along with ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST and (if one considers it a Western) THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE.
Haha. Amusingly, Wayne and Hawks made RIO BRAVO as a direct response to HIGH NOON. And I hate to say it, but I think RIO BRAVO blows HIGH NOON out of the water.
Great observations, Titus. Thanks for posting!
Dick: So in just a couple of lines, you manage to attack gays, overweight people and "libtards" and defend Sarah Palin and Dirty Grandpa. Clearly an intellectual giant in our midst! Thanks for writing!
Ha! My favorite Rex Reedism: "BLUE VELVET should score high with the kind of sickos who like to smell dirty socks and pull the wings off butterflies, but there's nothing here for sane audiences." :D
Thanks for writing, Lance. Nothing wrong with "manly and macho" movies; check out CHATO'S LAND and THUNDERBOLT AND LIGHTFOOT, both positively reviewed in this same column.
You're right, Jamal. Henceforth, I will strive to live my life according to your standards. (Also FYI: If someone uses terms like "you peace[sic] of shit" and "pompous self-absorbed asshole," then most likely it's a troll or fanboy and not someone looking for a genuine discussion on film.)
