Doris Day steals the show as Calamity who crackles with energy , some fantastic songs . Even though it's supposed to be a romance between Calamity and Wild Bill it seem it was more a love story between Calamity and Katie. If this doesn't put a smile on your face and have you tapping your toes, your probably dead. 8/10


Now watching Django (1966)

Hatfields and McCoys (2012)

An interesting, at times exciting and often informative four and a half hour mini series about the very bloody feud between two families - the Hatfields and McCoys.

Although Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton head the field (It serves as a reminder that the late Bill Paxton was a fantastic and very underrated actor) the rest of the cast including Tom Berenger, Powers Boothe and Sarah Parish are also very good and the production values are high.

What i did like was the way the script had me rooting for one family then the next depending on which despicable act was carried out. Whilst it doesn't really match up with the best the western genre has to offer it's still very watchable and a good addition to my dvd collection.

Django (1966)




The movie opens with Django dragging a coffin behind him , he soon comes across a woman tied to a stake and being whipped , saving the woman he makes his way to the nearest village , which is in the middle of a war between a racist ex general and a group of bandits. Quite violent for its day with some good scenes, when we find out what's in the coffin and when a mans ear is cut off and he is forced to eat it are a couple. 7/10



A stellar cast tell the story of the West from one family's point of view . 7/10




A wild West show down on its luck enters a hidden valley that's the home for dinosaurs, they mange to capture one and being it back to put on show, of course something goes wrong and the beasties escapes. 7.5/10



A man with no name enters a small village that's is home for two waring gangs, he plays the two sides against each other. Vintage Clint with some fantastic scenes and one of the best soundtracks ever! 8.5/10





The legend returns as the man with no name , this time he's a bounty Hunter seeking a bandit leader and his gang , another bounty Hunter( Lee van Cleef) is also seeking them. First at logger heads they soon develop a mutual respect and team up together. Another fantastic soundtrack and a film that proves there will never be anyone as cool as Clint! 9/10

The Undefeated (1969)

In the aftermath of the Civil War, Union cavalry men heading towards Mexico cross paths with a band of Southern soldiers and an uneasy friendship is formed especially when the men get caught between Mexican rebels fighting their government forces.

Shot entirely on location, Andrew V. Mclaglen's western is epic in scale and beautifully shot, complete with vast cattle drives and circle the wagons shoot em' ups galore. Both John Wayne and Rock Hudson as the leaders of the two former warring factions are both excellent, and the involving screen play brings beautifully to life even the smallest performances.

Recommended.
