HBO is running it again tonite. Is it worth a look see?
I saw it, OK show. Did a good job bringing most of the original characters back. Don't watch it around sensitive ears, some of the filthiest language I've heard in a movie.
If you enjoy westerns, yes. I thought it was fun.
I loved it. Fell in love with the series, and the movie (for the most part) did very well capturing the original ambience.
Watched it tonight. A bit discerning, and melancholy, to see how the characters had aged in one, ten year jolt. I did enjoy it. But it took a few minutes.
Reminded me how much I immersed myself into this view of the American West when I binge watched the original series about five years ago. And it left me wanting more. Which is always the benchmark of any quality artistic work.
Horrid movie. The director and company admitted that people did not use such foul language in those days. They admitted that people used words more along the lines of "tarnation" and "dagnabbit!"
But they decided to use such crass language to convey a mood. The only thing they conveyed was that there was nothing historical about the movie, just pandering.
Even so, it was boring. And the end was so anticlimactic as to be pointlessly stupid. The writers obviously spent all their energy in the pre-release trailers and had nothing left to conjure anything resembling a proper close.
More or less. Might be the best western of the year, because there aren't any big-budget westerns, but not too good. Reminded me of one of those Christmas specials they used to do for TV series, like "The Waltons Family Christmas" or something, where they'd have all of the old characters show up again just because, with no real plot. I was not impressed enough to even remember what sort of storyline it had.
The language that offended our more delicate members is one of my favorite things. I try to quote Al Swearengen as often as possible, so to hell with all of you white c____ s____s.
If you liked the series, it is worth watching. I found it a bit disappointing in comparison with the series.
I loved the series. This movie was disappointing but worth watching.
I could tell that the movie was made for a general audience, not necessarily dedicated fans of the series. Was kinda “Hallmarky,” but it didn’t leave loose ends.
Waste of time..so disappointing
The point of the writers is that dangnabit and tarnation were offensive at that time. They wanted to use words we would find offensive to convey how foul the inhabitants of the camp were. The English language is not and has never been static. Take a look at how the n word has evolved over time. At one point it was only said by whites in a derogatory manner to blacks and now for one black to another that are close it is like saying bro or dude.
To be frank if you read up on Deadwood of that time many of the characters would have ended up in prison for long sentences or repeat sentences for violent acts. Al, Johnny, and the rest of the saloon employees and pimps beat their women savagely yet they were key to building the town.
The whole point of the show is that the frontier was closing up and civilization was coming. That may be why the movie feels off. The last time we saw them it was still a rough and tumble frontier outpost.
Entertainment media using gratuitous violence or profanity is merely pimping for pennies. I find it distracting and a waste of time.
And, your explanation is about as lame as the writer's.
It was OK. It could have easily been better.....
Yeah, because " hornswaggler" and "soiled doves" were just sooo polite.
People who clutch their pearls over coarse language read too much "True West " magazine imo. God forbid that someone slitting a throat should say a modern curse word on film. The horror.
Well the "F-Word" still takes center stage, even Globally now, along with it's signing buddy "Da Finger" AK "Da Bird". Seems the "F-Word" originated with British Sailors a century or two ago, who knows where the Sailors got it from. The English language has by far the most words of any language with over 900,000 words and counting. The most versatile word in the English language is the "F-Word". Sayonara.
Over 900,000 words in the English language and you have to speak to us in Japanese?
