In my vain attempt to make this movie relevent again, I figured I'd start a thread about it.

So has anyone else seen it?

If you took my recommendation, what did you think?

Lets see if we can get this thread past 1 post :)

Its one of my favourite movies of all time. I have 3 copies. I'm hoping they release it on blu-ray.

I saw it twice the year it came out. Once in the theater and once at a drive-in. Great, great movie.

Can anyone give a small summary or heads up about the movie?

Sure we can Google it but without even a small bit of enticement how do you expect people to just give up a few hours of precious time?

I have never watched Silverado but I don't think it would pass Unforgiven and Tombstone as my favorite Westerns of all-time. But I will watch it sometime to make sure.

I have not seen it yet unfortunately Wombat, but I put it in my queue in Netflix AND it's also in my long list in my Amazon cart.

Seen it many times. It's a good movie, not a great movie (even among westerns), but a lot of fun and a nice cast. It's mostly remembered as being Kevin Costner's breakout film, the role that really made him a star. It makes me miss Kevin Kline in the 80s. He was so great in everything he was in. Also love the score by Bruce Broughton, which is very memorable.

It's going to be on AMC again on Dec. 5 at 11:00 pm EST and Dec. 6 at 5:00 pm EST.

By sheer coincidence, I had dinner a few weeks ago with Robert Osborne of Turner Classic Movies and several other TCM folks because one of my best friends will be hosting a movie (The Maltese Falcon) with him. She filmed it last month and it will be airing on TCM in April.

Just got the movie in the mail. I put in in my queue based solely on Wombat's recommendation. I'll post my impressions after I watch it.

Well I got this based off Wombats recomendation and watched it a couple of weeks ago. It was alright. I wouldn't give it the same praise Wombat has, but it wasn't bad either. It had its moments, but like a lot of westerns (at least to me) it became kind of dragy.

I recomend people watch Misery. I just watched it on netlflix instant. Was surpirsed how good it was.

Once Upon a Time in Mexico is the sequel to Desperado, not Silverado
