    Sounds interesting. I hope it's good. You just don't see a lot of good new Westerns these days.

    I love that it's a western movie. Like Zhora said, not to many of those being made anymore. I also thought it was a horror movie because of the previews. It has a great story and cast so hopefully, I'll catch it next weekend.

    The movie itself looks good, but TLJ is the wrong choice for this movie, I think. he makes me cringe in the trailers when he says completely without conviction "she should be scared, and you should be scared too."

    He's a good actor, just not right for this role.

    I really like TLJ.

    I usually don't like this sort of movie, but Cate Blanchett is making the movie look most compelling in the trailers I have seen.

    Saw it Saturday. It was good, but at almost 2:30 it was too long and I feel Howard could have gotten it done in 2:00 or so.

    Not as good as "Open Range", imho, but still a good movie and very injoyable. A DVD purchase for sure.

    Again, RoTK has no worries from this movie in the Oscars.

    I was hugely unimpressed. It was way too long and was completely predictable. The Indian witch was genuinely scary but otherwise I thought it was a major flop.
