To all the Western fans out there, who love movies like Shane or High Noon , I would like to highly recommend the new remake of 3:10 To Yuma . This is a movie that grabs you from the first frame and never let's up. Russel Crowe is superb as the outlaw Ben Wade, and his sidekick is so evil he makes Jack Palance look like a wimp! Worth seeing for the awesome cinematography alone. This one ranks up there with 'Shane' as one of the best ever Westerns.
And it will make a superb S8 cutdown for Derann! [Smile]

You've sparked my interest Paul. What a shame there aren't any cinemas around here for about 30 miles!

I've heard very good press and reviews about this re-make and they have all been highly positive. They say that it's far better than the Brad Pitt remake of the Jesse James saga.

The original was a also a superior western, starring Van Heflin and Glenn Ford.

I wholeheartedly agree with you. Russell Crowe is terrific and Christian Bale is just as good. It's also great to see Peter Fonda chew up the scenery as a bounty hunter with an obsession.

Although, this film has not yet been released in the cinemas here I managed to watch an early preview, all I can say is that its great, real edge of the seat stuff, fantastic sound, and those bullets flying around [Eek!] what a cast, best movie I have watched in a long time, dont miss this one.

Just checked "DVD Planet" that was a quick release onto DVD [Eek!] and its not even on our screens yet, [Frown] although in saying that, a film like this will look good on a large cinema screen , without giving much away I liked what Russell Crowe did in the final seconds of the film "nice touch" here horsey [Wink] even the music reminded me of some of Clint Eastwood films a top notch movie.

Well the movie will be released out here on the 20th March this year, it's been a long time coming [Roll Eyes] a few weeks ago I managed to get a new 35mm trl, for those that are into buying trailers this one is long and action packed, ideal in flat or scope format for Super8 release.

Well the 35mm print came and went long long ago, I still have the trl and movie poster. Watched the Blu-ray last night and the quality is "excellent" well worth getting. Its taken me a long time to get around to watching the Blu-ray, however one day, "hopefully" I will come across a 35mm that would be nice [Cool]

Well folks they say all good things come to people that wait, well at last I got my hands on the 35mm film print, and its much more fun than the Blu-ray. Paul if you are reading this, if you are ever out this way I can screen it on the now reel stuff. [Cool]

Here is a short extract [Smile]

I wonder if the 3:10 To Yuma was The Last Train From Gun Hill?
