Movie Trailer: The Hateful Eight (2015)

“Someone’s not who he says he is.” I’d fathom a guess that no one is who they say they are in Quentin Tarantino’s latest foray into the West, The Hateful Eight. Motivated by a reward for a murderer (and possibly other factors), the eight hunkered down in a pass stop along the way to Red…

Movie Review: Slow West (2015)

A light-hearted score by Jed Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) punctuates Slow West, first-time director John Maclean’s 84-minute deconstruction of the myth of the frontier.

The experience of watching a Tarantino movie tends to be a scattered one, pieces…

Movie Trailer #2: The Lone Ranger (2013)

Tonto speaks! And he sounds a lot like Johnny Depp . . . In the new full trailer for Disney’s western actioner The Lone Ranger, Tonto plays a more prominent role, even uttering the iconic “kemosabe” several times. This trailer, which is embedded above, explains in detail how the Lone Ranger was born (murdered family;…
