Shane (1953)

First, Eastwood's Pale Rider is a pretty direct copy of this. I liked that one little more than this (maybe I should have given it half popcorn more) but mostly the difference is that...

I suppose that's a fair assessment.

What I (probably) mean by lack of characters in regards to Monos is that they're not detailed with deeper motivations or background. In the movie's context,...

Monos (2019)

Kind of a mix between Pixote and Lord of the Flies but with Colombian child soldiers. It has similar problems as Pixote too (especially the lack of characters but I can see why it's...

Re: Movie HALL of FAME Archives & Info

I'm probably in the western HoF as well. Almost done with the Japanese. No idea what to nominate though but I'm sure I'll figure out something (probably something CR hates but that's kinda given).

Re: Quentin Tarantino Top 10

I don't remember much specifics but the first film that comes to mind is Mel Gibson's Apocalypto (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0472043/).
