    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    I would say no. The first film is the set-up for the rest of the story. It essentially sets up three strands and leaves them all hanging. The first film actually does not have an ending. It literally just stops. So, I don't know how far part two will go toward resolving what is in part one, but...

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    I have to admit that it really irks me that Coppola and Costner put their own money into making pictures they really wanted to make and they get made out to be fools and idiots for doing so, and it seems some people, because of the risk they took, just desperately want them to fail. These guys...

    Wow, this just came out and I got a notification the 4K and Blu are already up for preorder.

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    Well, maybe I should qualify what I am saying, there are people in those countries that love Westerns, so there is an audience. I mean, its been a few years but I recall finding a really cool Western movie poster shop in Rome, and a Western comic book store in Paris. Also The Wild Wild West was...

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    Yes, Westerns are loved in France, Germany, the UK, Italy and Spain. The Russians also enjoy Westerns. However, it is the Asian markets everybody wants to chase now and I am not sure of their popularity there at this stage. If you could have a Western hit in China, well, I think suddenly a lot...

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    Well, I understand the comparison, Lucas did have a lot of help on Star Wars but not having yet seen Horizon, I can't say yet what I think is right or wrong with it. I've never heard that Costner was heavily assisted by Reynolds on Dances with Wolves. I assume he had help, Dances being his first...

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    If this plays a bit like something shot for TV or looks a bit like that, it is likely not due to Kevin Reynolds not participating, it is probably because Costner has been doing a TV Western for a while and used methods from shooting for TV on this shoot. Basically, I had a feeling he was doing...

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    If you want to support people making westerns go see this in a cinema and bring friends. I have heard he has begun shooting part three. I'm trying to get a group together to go to this with me. I know fans of his Yellowstone series and I am trying to sell them on sitting in a cinema for 6 hours...

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    Well, obviously I was not there in the old west, most of my knowledge of it comes from the mythologized version of the west we have seen over many years, but people have always come with legs and feet so I can't see why someone might not kick another person in a fit of rage. I don't think that...

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    So, I heard some comments about this from people that have seen it. To me they were very encouraging comments and I will share these couple points because I think they will sort of indicate why some will love this movie and some may not. No spoilers in this, it is just general comments about the...

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    I am hoping that there is a renewed love for westerns out there and people go to see this in the theater. I also hope that the oddity of there being two films released in the same summer a month apart will generate some excitement. With the Barbie/Oppenheimer thing that seemed to get big because...

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    Well, I have seen a Dune comparison about this, that the first film is a lot of intro and set-up and then things really take off in part two. I have heard Costner's character does not appear until they are an hour into the film. The thing is, I think pacing is a bit of a lost art, and perhaps he...

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    I am clueless as to what audiences want to see now. I've read articles claiming the western is back, in part because of Costner and his Yellowstone series. Now, as far as the cinema goes, I mean, there is the occasional western released, most are small budget affairs. So, really I guess, as you...

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    There are some rather huge movies at Cannes this year. Probably none bigger than this, potentially 12 hours in 4 films. I'm really excited that my summer is going to entail going to a cinema to see 6 hours of western on a big screen. Awesome! Apparently, as Coppola did with his film, Costner...

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    Trailer 2 has some bite, and that music sort of makes me think of a Walter Hill picture, which is a good thing.

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    Loved them both. I can't really say one was better than the other because they are such different films. Good year though.

    Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 (2024)

    Curious if it has been done before where they release both parts in the same season with a month in between. Very ambitious. I admit, being a huge fan of Westerns, I am very excited for this. Costner is good at this kind of thing.
