^ it really is a great film. I knew you'd love it Tony. The more I think about it the more I'm realizing just how much I enjoyed it myself. So fresh and such a welcome surprise.

This is one gigantic grab bag of awesomeness disguised as your run of the mill slasher film. And when I say "disguised" I'm talking about the cheapest disguise you could ever find, we're talking clearance rack at the $.99 Store. It very quickly becomes obvious that this is NOT your "run of the mill slasher film", what it actually is is not made entirely clear until late in the film, and even then your head will be spinning too much to care.

If you're a horror fan of any kind, there's something in this for you, heck.. there's even a unicorn!

Unforgiven - 10/10.

Can't think of a Western with three stronger leads in it (and Richard Harris is amazing in it, also).

Perfect representation of how the Old West was... where the "villain" is just a man who tries to keep the peace in his town by any means necessary. The line between "good" and "evil" is rubbed out entirely in this film, with two men trying hard to be the exact opposite of what comes naturally to them (Munny more so than Little Bill, for sure, though LB's "house-building" is his attempt at proving to himself he can "be normal".. the irony being that he can't build worth sh!t).

I don't know if it was the comic material or the director but this movie is all over the place. It bounces between light and serious tone too many times. The main bad guy is so over the top it's unbelievable. It's not the actors fault either. They are all awesome. In the end, when the most memorable scene in an action movie is of Chris Evans singing a Journey song you know there are problems.
That's my favorite scene of the movie too...

Jason Patrick really is ridiculous in this movie.

Sorry!

Just try to forget about it, I don't want you to get overhyped on it, and then end up disappointed.

Easier said than done, I know, but you'll be better off for it.

Yup, fresh is definitely the word. Which is funny, because for me, there were so many familiar things sprinkled throughout. Just a really fun movie, enjoyed it very much!

Yeah, I'm scared that's gonna happen, quite a bit of hype for this little film.
