Just between you, me, and the rest of the internet, this film



is good.

No, it has no impressive visuals, it doesn't do much new, and it won't change your world. Yes, it is a good solid piece of writing, fantastically drawn characters, perfect pacing, balance, each beat fell just where it was needed.

It's good.

  1. It sure is. Saw it last night. A good, lean, classical western. The pacing really is excellent. (It's based on an Elmore Leonard story, so maybe that's no surprise.)

  2. I haven't seen it yet, oddly enough, despite the presence of Christian Bale. It's about time to reinstate my Netflix subscription, though...

    (I had no idea this movie was a remake, either, until last month when we got the original in to sell on our Sony DVD rack at work.)

  3. I noticed that too, Chris. Figured that's the majority of awesome right there.

    Jaime, I was thinking of you when he popped up. Don't think it's a new role for him, but he does great.
