Film School Drop Outs Weekly Challenge
Week 8: Genre - Western - The Dying Western (1930s)
Western films are really not my thing, so I was the least excited for this week. Chose the highest rated movie, only to now find out that there was a James stewart-led one right there :/// which apparently had singing in it!!! Im sure I would've enjoyed that more.
The rating doesn't mean that it's necessarily bad on a filmmaking level, it was just an underwhelming experience. Some aspects have aged badly, and the knowledge of Wayne's interview just makes the whole thing worse.
Positive: have now seen one more important genre movie and will get the references made to it in other films, so yay. Also, can see its influence on The Hateful Eight.
