My wife bragged on "Open Range". It looked and sounded interesting. I lasted about half way through. Very disappointed. Turns out it was a soap opera. Time to watch Unforgiven again.

We saw it last night and I thought it was great. They talked to each other JUST like 2 guys would. Look they went 10 years and barely knew anything about each other, just like guys do.

Yep Big T, I agree. This movie was short on dialogue but long on merit and accuracy. I got a little irritated at things like the long shot of the hand rolled cigarette in Costner's hand but I also got the impression that it wasn't designed to be a great movie but to showcase the traditional cowboy.

The old time cowboy was not big on words....'Don't stand behind me boss' a perfect example of how a cowboy might have used to speak. Plus the embarrassment of not being able to get their fingers through the holes in the fragile china cups, because of all the 'busted knuckles'. Try to give it another chance Stan, you missed a lot having not watched it all the way through. The shoot out at the end was awesome.

Maybe I will. Trouble is I was comparing it to Lonesome Dove. Loved that movie. Really like Robert Duvall.

I have a friend that keeps telling me that I need to watch this movie. Is it out on video?
