Film Reviews - Western


Westerns as defined by Wikipedia (truncated because it's crazy long): Westerns are devoted to telling stories set primarily in the latter half of the 19th century in the American Old West.... Westerns often portray how primitive and obsolete ways of life confronted modern technological or social changes.

Ah, westerns. Where the bad are bad and the good are few and far between. In November 2007 I explored the world of westerns and found it to be quite a fascinating genre and easily comprised a favourites list. It's exciting to see that we continue to see westerns released today. See also Episode 20 of the Movie Moxie Podcast where I discuss Westerns as a Genre as well as review True Grit (2010).
