Throwback Movie Saturday: Ladyhawke

With the current state of movies being complete and utter SHITE I thought I would start a new thing where each Saturday we go back in time and watch a older movie together without having to worry about tranny’s, inter-racial or gay sex, multiculturalism, anti-white rhetoric, or any other type of socially degrading woke liberal politics shoved down our throats.

I will do my best to mix up the genres each week.

Being I grew up in the late 70’s, early 80’s, I am a sucker for medieval-fantasy movies like Conan, Krull, Beastmaster, etc. so this week I chose Ladyhawke from 1985 starring Rutger Hauer, Matthew Broderick and a very young and beautiful Michelle Pfeiffer.

 

You can watch Ladyhawke HERE for free.

Feeling Like General Ripper in Dr. Strangelove Right About Now? Yeah Me Too…

I was perusing through old WW3 Movies and this by far is one of my favorites of all time.

I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard at a performance than Sterling Hayden’s portrayal of the whacked out General Ripper or Peter Sellers as the Amazing German Scientist, Dr. Strangelove (Mein Fuhrer!)

 

Best Western Movie of 2021: Old Henry

H/T to My Favorite Westerns

 

 

Real Westerns are a dime a dozen these days.

About every five years one comes along that is worth watching from a writer not influenced by the current woke agenda that seeks to inject a version of fantasy instead of history, you know the kind I am talking about: where any color other than white makes up the majority of the cast and lesbian gunslingers save the day?

Seriously, I can count on one hand the best western movies of the last decade:

  • True Grit (2010)

  • The Homesman (2014)

  • The Revenant (2015)

  • Hostiles (2017)

  • Old Henry (2021)

Starring one of my favorite actors, Tim Blake Nelson, whose body of work includes such films as O’ Brother Where Art Thou?, The Homesman and Child of God.

Old Henry is superbly written, with some down home wisdom that will make you smile.

Son: “I still don’t believe this is what you wanted; up at dawn, feeding the stock, working the crops, hot or cold, rain or shine.”

Old Henry: “You’ll discover there’s worse arrangements…”

I also really liked how the movie dived head first into the duality of the gunfighter mythos and historical reality.

I remember watching Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid (1973) when I was a youngster (which I still consider one of Sam Peckinpah’s finest works next to the The Wild Bunch (1969) and I immediately got hooked on the story and mythos surrounding Billy the Kid and the Lincoln County War.

To Hell on a Fast Horse is one of the best books I have ever read on the subject of Billy the Kid, aka William Bonney, aka Henry Atrim, aka Henry McCarty.

They Drew First Blood, Not Me

In rememberance of Brian Dennehy (who played the Sheriff in the movie and passed away last year at the age of 81) I watched First Blood again the other night..boy that movie never gets old.

I remember the first time I watched it as a kid, I could not have been more than 7 or 8 years old, but right then I knew: I wanted to be John Rambo!

Something unique struck me as I watched this movie for the 158th time:

This is the end result when you FUCK with people who just want to be left alone.

Take Note of that Slo-Joe and Company.

Great Western Scenes: Shane

For my  money, Shane is one of the best Western’s ever made.

I must have watched it three dozen times with my Dad.

Two of my favorite lines is “One (gun) is all you need if you can use it” and “A Gun is as good or bad as the man using it.”
