Tonight I saw Open Range (Kevin Costner flick recently released) at good old Court St. United Artist theater here in Brooklyn. I actually got angry enough to go by myself, and enjoyed the movie immensely. The critics don't always take kindly to Mr. Costner's films, but what do they know anyway? I won't give away too many details, but let me tell you, the gun fight at the end of the movie is incredible.

I think what I enjoyed most about the movie was that it was believable. You can't say that for most movies in this day and age. All that flying and flipping and jumping around. You know the kind... absurd scenes with people kicking through pillars and slicing each other with electric glowing swords. I watched the entire movie and didn't once catch myself saying "Yeah... right." Just a good old, sit-back-and-watch-as-the-story-unfolds-in-a-how-the-west-was-won-gun-slinging-cowboy-rivalary sort of way. And it's Kevin Costner... need I say more?

My kind of movie. Hot damn.
