Damn near every time a new, good looking western comes out someone writes a piece about whether the western is making a comeback. It's not the old days of tons of movie westerns and won't ever be again (do we really want it to be?). A list of the top ten westerns from the last decade is easy to compile because there were only 10 westerns made, you just have to decide how to order them (sarcasm). Jokey bullshitting aside this Christmas looks to be a one good for western fans with two high profile western films coming out. Take a look at the trailers and let me know what you think.
The trailer for The Revenant was kind of vague, so it's hard to say. Hateful Eight looks promising, so long as Tarantino can remember to make a movie, and not become engrossed in making a Quentin Tarantino movie. Django Unchained was excellent until the last half hour orso, when QT seemed to remember, "Oh, shit, I'm Quentin Tarantino and there's a bunch of shit I need to put in a movie to make it mine."
