The movie was good as was just about all the actors in it. Someone said the oldest son was a weak actor and I have to agree.

That's a shame. Both Shoot 'Em Up and Yuma deserve better weekends than that.

Pretty much par for the course for the post-Labor Day weekend.

More westerns please.

Yeah, after that $60 million movie had a $14 million opening, I'm sure Hollywood is fast-tracking every single Western treatment they can get their hands on.

I didn't say "hey, I bet they'll make more westerns now," did I?

Yuma certainly could've done worse (and I half suspected it would). It sort of pissed me off that we now average about one Hollywood western every two or three years.

Nah, you asked for more Westerns, and I'm just telling you why it's not going to happen.

There really isn't much money to be in Westerns today. So really the only time you're going to see Hollywood sinking money into the genre is when it becomes the pet project of a big name actor like Clint Eastwood or Tom Cruise or Russell Crowe or Brad Pitt or Kevin Costner.

I saw Shoot'Em Up this weekend and thought it was awesome mindless fun in the vain of Crank. I wish it would have done a bit better at the BO though.
