High Noon

High Noon Official Trailer #1 - Gary Cooper Movie (1952) HD



The film tells, in real time, the story of a town marshal forced to face a gang of killers by himself.  It's a portrait of resolute moral courage in a man opposed by his townfolk, deputy and even his new wife.  It's a departure from the western movie genre and is a brilliant character study.

Another good western( but maybe not quite great but close) was Open Range! I'm a Robert Duvall fan for sure!

Yeah I liked that one a lot Dcazz, Duvall was excellent (Im a sucker for westerns), not sure about Costner, although I loved Dancing With Wolves

I also like Space films, has anyone seen Event Horizon ? (one of my faves) and Moon ?

I must be screwed up beyond repair because I like almost all Costner movies. I thought the Postman was f***ing brilliant and everybody hates that movie. Open Range was awesome too. Hell, I even dug Waterworld and that gets laughed at. Eh, what do I know.

I always thought 'American Beauty' was one of the best flicks i've ever seen.

Waterworld is in my top 10, TK. Fantastic stunt work.

My number one of all time is Jaws.

Tkitna - I don't always agree with you but lately your posts and my thoughts have aligned.

costner - JFK, Field of Dreams, Bull Durham, No Way Out * , The Untouchables, he even had a small role in Night Shift (plus Dances with Wolves, going to watch that this week at the lake)

* No way out- fantastic movie that most don't know about.

I think a lot of people think he's like the same in every move, so are critical of him, I thought he was a bit dodgy (Heath barclay haha) in Open range and completely outshone by Duvall, btw I liked waterworld & The Postman too mate

Man On Fire (Denzel) is a great movie, and I like In Bruges with Colin Farrell

Costner's kind of boring but with the right part he does good.I think Dances With Wolves qualifies as a great movie and probably his high point. Lonsome Dove although a mini-series was really good. Duvall and Tommie Lee Jones did well together! I liked how he kept his word!
Jerimiah Johnson was a truly great early western. I don't get tired of that one.
I saw Event Horizon years ago but can't remember details.

My wifes father is a knife maker and actually made the tomahawks for Jerimiah Johnson. True story. His name is Ron (RW) Wilson. He's nuts though and my wife hasent spoken to him in over 15 years, but he is a good knife maker.

Here's a few links I found.
