Black Horse Canyon – Release Review

Love triangles meet with old school Westerns in Black Horse Canyon… An old school 50’s Western which has its heart set on romance over pistols is a nice variation on the tried and tested formula. And whilst Black Horse Canyon does give us a bad guy to root against, a couple of brawls to watch and the […]

Slow West – Review (Spoiler Free)

A true Western which feels fresh whilst staying rooted in its genre’s hallmarks… It’s a funny thing to me that so many critics are describing Slow West as being a reinvention of the western genre. It’s not. This isn’t a neo-western like the Coen’s No Country for Old Men or Amirpour’s recent vampire western A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. […]

A Fistful of Dollars – Review (Spoiler Free)

The first in the Dollars Trilogy, and the one which marks the beginning of the Spaghetti Western’s extreme success; A Fistful of Dollars is a thoroughly entertaining and satisfying film. It’s actually tightly plotted, a detail that Leone’s later masterpieces abandoned somewhat. It keeps its story simple; The Man with No Name, although he acquires […]

Lawless – Review (Spoiler Free)

Set during the prohibition era in America, we follow three bootlegging brothers who violently defend their right to remain independent against crooked lawmen looking for a cut of the business.
