Do you Like Modern Westerns?


As Above So Below
On your recommendation I watched this film last night Nivek, ... And i'm pleased to say that I thought it was brilliant! :Thumbsup: ... I can't praise the film high enough, it was thoroughly absorbing from start to finish. Tim Blake Nelson [old Buster Scruggs himself] gave a particularly smooth and understated performance, and the slight twist in the story [i'll not spoil it for anyone that's going to watch. lol] was perhaps not really necessary .. but nice anyway. ... Excellent film , thanks for the tip,... got any more of that class Nivek? :)

Cheers Buddy.

I've watched Old Henry 3 times now, enjoyed it every single time, I always liked Tim Blake Nelson, he stars in another old timey sort of western but more of a southern style movie called O Brother, Where Art Thou?...



I just binge watched Y: 1883 It definitely fits the category of modern western. It's on MTV and it has 10 episodes. You won't believe the stars in this show and this is just season 1.

I loved it but...

It was pure fantasy. Nothing like this would have ever have happened back then.

The acting was superb, the story was fun to follow along with, the characters were easy to fall in love with or in the case of the villains, easy to hate. The series was packed full of guest stars that I loved running into. It kept me on my toes because I didn't want to miss anyone. lol

The cinematography was breathtaking in almost every scene. Looking forward to the next season and I only hope it does not make us wait years for it.

I have never watched Yellowstone. Don't think Kevin Costner is that talented. Just my opinion, of course.

I give 1883 8.5/10.

IMDB gives it 8.4


What do you think of Westerns set in the present, or close to it? Are they really Westerns?

I'm interested in your thoughts about the sub-genre as a whole, but in particular am wondering if anyone has watched Justified (2010-2015)? I'm already paying for it via Hulu, so I've decided to take a peek at it.

I'm trying out Justified as a replacement for Magnum P.I. which I've just decided to ditch.
I'm really liking Justified. I starting watching Breaking Bad at the same time, but haven't even finished the second episode of the latter.

Old Henry (2021)

Just finished watching this movie again and thoroughly enjoyed it...Feeding the gunslinger to the hogs after killing him is a good way of making the man disappear lol...The big reveal was almost as surprising to me as it was the first time I saw the movie...
