By about the first hour, The Assassination of Jesse James won me over completely, but I don't think I'll ever revisit it. It's beautifully filmed (except for those weird blurry-focus shots), and it's impossible to dislike the cast, especially Pitt as a paranoid, unhinged Jesse James, probably the nuttiest he's been on camera since 12 Monkeys. My problem though is the character Robert Ford, who for most of the film is an annoying whiner who can't see he's just not the hot shit he thinks he is. Don't get me wrong, I like Casey Affleck, but as Ford he continually rubbed me the wrong way, whereas perhaps another actor could present the audience with the conundrum of WANTING to like him despite his goals.

Pausing the movie for The Daily Show and At Midnight...and honestly I'm having a bit of trouble sitting through this one.

Can't, I say, can't stop the marathon now! Next up: The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

It's one helluva underrated western flicks.

loooooove this film

True Grit is a fantastic modern western. Bridges and Damon's ongoing battle of bravados is the stuff of Eastwood and Wallach in Good/Bad/Ugly, Brolin makes a great impression on the film for being in the thing for all of thirteen (seriously, I checked the clock) minutes, and LEAD ACTRESS (not Supporting, you Academy putzes) Hailee Steinfeld carries enough verbal venom and backbone to rumble with all three of them.

I need to revisit True Grit but I remember Steinfeld being one of the highlights. I think I read she was put down for Supporting to give her a better shot at winning since Lead was a tough competition that year. Or something like that.

Great film-

If I'm ever looking at an inevitable fight and need a good growling one-liner, I'll try and think first of "Fill your hand, you sonuvabitch!"

The Bear Man is one of those characters where you don't need to hear a word of his backstory, but you just KNOW it's gotta be an interesting one, amiright?

Next up on the western marathon docket, saddling up with The Dude for a long-overdue revisit of the Coen Brothers' True Grit.

This lovely Wilde Wednesday leaves me at T-minus 10 days to Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, where, fingers crossed, I might just be able to lay eyes on the lovely lady in person. at least as "in person" as a security barrier will allow, and assuming my information is correct and she's set to be part of the event. Anyway, here's a hot Olivia picture.

BOOM, I just got retweeted by Patton Oswalt! When a professional comedian takes a moment to find YOU funny, that's a good start to the day.

Sorry to say I didn't get much out of Pale Rider. Eastwood being his usual badass self is always a welcome attractor, but other than that I had more fun watching the villains than any of the good guys, who I mostly found annoying, particularly Michael Moriarty and Sydney Penny.

Aw shoot. Well, not every film can be for everyone. You at least got to see good and memorable performances from Clint Eastwood and the late, great Richard Kiel.

Back to the western marathon. I'm gonna try and wrap it up over the next two days. Tonight's selection offers one more go-round with Clint in 1985's Pale Rider.

Alas, no Godzilla waiting in the mailbox, but my latest TeeFury purchase did show up. Win some, lose some.
