    Mad Max: Fury Road - super awesome movie. It would have been even better on the big screen. The whole thing was great from the story to the action to the acting. Not a great movie but it was super awesome.
    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    For fans of Unforgiven, another western to consider is The Proposition (2005).
    Another recent Western entry to consider is Slow West, available to stream on Amazon Prime. It kinda has a Coen brother's vibe.

    Speaking of Eastwood, I caught Thunderbolt and Lightfoot the other day. The Eastwood scowl (and obligatory shirt-less scenes), Jeff Bridges in drag (looking good too), car chase through a drive-in movie?!

    Long live the 70s.

    Also, they don't make movie posters like they used to...

    Thunderbolt and Lightfoot has always been a favorite of mine. Some scenes in that film remind me of the Coen brothers and I wonder if that film had an influence on them. I'll add the scene where George Kennedy, playing a hardened misanthrope gangster, is driving an ice cream truck trying to earn money for the heist.

    You left out the part where he tells the kid to go "f%$# a duck".

    But that's just the tip of the iceberg. The movie has everything! Like hitchhiking with a redneck and a racoon accompanied by a trunk full of rabbits.



    LOL!
