It'll be a nice break from the CGI heavy stuff I've spent most of my summer watching. Plus Duvall adds loads of credibility.

I was thinking the same thing.

I'm not much of a fan of Costner's but since I am a big fan of Duvall's, I guess it all evens out.Posted Image

I laugh everytime I hear that. I'll pass, unless the reviews are very positive.

No it wasnt the cue from Wyatt Earp that I was thinking of, its either the 2nd or 3rd cue.


Soundtrack.net has the trailer music sources listed as Wyatt Earp, Waterworld, and The Postman.

Trailers always borrow music. T3 had LOTR music.

Ever notice how almost all people enjoy westerns? The last good one I saw was "Tombstone" and this one looks like it's going to be a good one too. Didn't Kamen do the superb soundtrack on HBO's "Band of Brothers"?

I'm excited for this film. I agree with the sentiments on CGI. I have gotten quite tired of that. I also think Costner is underrated. He certainly didn't help himself with Waterworld and The Postman, though. I will be seeing this one as the trailer has already convinced me. Posted Image

Ebert and Roeper gave it two thumbs up. Ebert's only complaint was about the love relationship involving Costner and Benning, while Roeper said it was beautifully made and one of the finest westerns since Unforgiven. There was talk that Duvall could be up for best supporting actor.

They are completely wrong. Reasons to follow.

Well, since I'm surrounded at work every day by people who hate westerns, no, I hadn't noticed Posted Image This one looks interesting, though, and I'll probably see it this weekend. I like how it actually looks like a real western with real people in it, instead of Hollywood's usual approach of mimicking Young Guns.

Don't you mean " I disagree with their opinion, my opinion is forthcoming"?Posted Image

I think it looks very good. I'm a Costner and Duvall fan so it's twice as enticing.
It's gonna be a hell of a ride. I'm ready. .

Well, yes, but that's not nearly as dramatic!Posted Image I got home from the screening at 1 in the morning, and I'm still not completely awake, and didn't have the chance to pound out a review, but did have a lot of time to think about it while driving the hour home.

In the review thread he mentions the character developement. I just assume Costner's character will be the same as all the rest, and I enjoyed him in those. Same as Duval. If they are the same people then I can enjoy it, because I like the other ones.

Steve,

You will. I liked Duval's character, and I like him. I don't like Costner, and I didn't like his. It all makes sense. Posted Image

My problem with the characters stemmed from the lack of depth and growth... the characters are set out in the beginning of the film, explained, and they never go anywhere. They don't show remorse for killing, they don't show concern for others... they seem autonomous of emotion. Eerie, really.

I really disagree with you about the two leads not having remorse or concern for others.
