Is the Western on Its Way Back?

A post-apocalyptic western

Scorched Earth

Saw Hostiles in the cinema yesterday.
I enjoyed it but it is very slow moving and one paced. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea for sure but the performances are very strong throughout and if you like your westerns downbeat there should be something for you here. it is nothing if not relentlessly depressing. :slightly_smiling_face:

Just saw this one come along. It is an Australian western :slight_smile:

Looks interesting. Never heard of Ben Hall before. It is based upon his life.

Excited because it opens this weekend over here and I will go see it

I thought Hostiles was excellent. Christian Bale’s character moves through his developmental arc a little too briskly maybe but there’s still a lot to like here. Jesse Plemons is fast becoming a favourite actor of mine.

That actually looks like it might be fun

Woman Walks Ahead was pretty bad btw…

Any Bullet will do

If the western were on it’s way back, or had made a legit return, then we’d know about it.

A couple of seconds into this trailer, and the question is answered, NO … but there seem to be a lot of untalented people who think they can aid the return with this type of micro budget nonsense.

To whom it may concern … Please, pretty please. Stop making these embarrassing vanity projects.
