Taken, the movie

I just watched a movie called"taken". In a nutshell, lots of shooting, decent drama, no clear "good guys". Bad cops, bank robbers, russian mobsters. No real winner, lots of losers.
Where are Gene and Roy?

That's a dang good question. I saw the show, I think. Had a good bit of Gunsmoke and Michael Landon in general.
And Fess Parker as Davy and Daniel.

Yep, I kept waiting on Roy and The Lone Ranger to be mentioned. Wagon train, Branded, etc. I guess it had to make money and be "cutting edge" to be considered.

Don't remember seeing Branded though.
They were a bit picky it seems.

Had a bunch on Gunsmoke but look how
many guest stars were on it.
Burt Reynolds start also

Not much of a movie. Didn't hold my attention very well. Slow moving with a forseeable ending. About an American hit man in Europe.

Boondock Saints

Yeah, I just saw it for the 1st time. I enjoyed it. Fast paced, lots of action, possible but not likely. Nope, I can't tell ya the make or model of a single gun they used. They all went bang so I was satisfied. My Highlander heritage made this one just a wee bit better for me!

Inglorious Basterds

IDK what they were trying to do with this one. If yer gonna do a WWII movie I reckon ya ought to try and follow history a little. Aside from the flawed events that we all know never happened, it did deliver on action and drama. What's his face was a bit over the top on his Virginia Mtn boy character. I still chuckle about him calling that Wilhelm guy "Willy". Its a good enough movie for a snow storm day.

I hated The American

and Inglorious Basterds sucked too. Not enough action. I still don't get most of that basement bar scene. Maybe I'll watch it again

The Westerns

mentioned here, along with Combat and The Rat Patrol......I have watched all of them at some point or another in my life. I didn't see the show you were talking about CW, but yea.....I wasn't much more than 13 and had a crush on Miss Kitty. Never could understand why Marshall Dillon didn't marry her. Vaq and CW you have probably both seen the movies I'm about to mention but if you get a chance, Eldorado, Rio Bravo, Rio Lobo, McClintock, Horse Soldiers, those were all great movies by THE MAN (John Wayne). I am sitting here with "The Good, The Bad, The Ugly" on in the background. I don't remember the movie Appaloosa too well. I know I have seen it. Another western series that may have been featured on that show, since none of you mentioned it was "The Big Valley" with Peter Breck, Jarrod Long, Lee Majors, Linda Evans and Miss Barbara Stanwick. If you remember this series, did you have a crush on Linda Evans? I damn sure did! Another movie that I liked was Silverado with Kevin Costner, Kevin Cline, Danny Glover. Also I guess the quentessential (sp?) Western with Robert DuVal in Lonesome Dove.

Freedom ain't Free, so thank a Veteran when you see one. They are the ones who have protected the freedoms that you enjoy!
