Comedy, Drama, Western

Vignettes weaving together the stories of six individuals in the old West at the end of the Civil War. Following the tales of a sharp-shooting songster, a wannabe bank robber, two weary traveling performers, a lone gold prospector, a woman traveling the West to an uncertain future, and a motley crew of strangers undertaking a carriage ride.

Love the format of this one. The quality of the stories varies from good to perfection, but once the end credits start to roll, you get a one big picture…

Bounty hunters seek shelter from a raging blizzard and get caught up in a plot of betrayal and deception.

Following the murder of her father by a hired hand, a 14-year-old farm girl sets out to capture the killer. To aid her, she hires the toughest U.S. Marshal she can find—a man with ‘true grit’—Reuben J. ‘Rooster’ Cogburn.

Western, Drama, Adventure

In the 1820s, a frontiersman, Hugh Glass, sets out on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling.

Worth the Oscar? I don’t know. But it’s a great effort from Inarritu and DiCaprio. The scenes are beautiful, the screenplay is smooth and precise.

Drama, Fantasy, Western

On the run after murdering a man, accountant William Blake encounters a strange North American man named Nobody who prepares him for his journey into the spiritual world.

Philosophical surreal journey to another world. Great music and acting, but there are some cheap scenes that stop me from giving the highest rating.
