Tombstone (1993)

Tombstone Quote: “”You skin that smoke wagon and we’ll see what happens! (…) I’m gettin’ tired of all your gas, now jerk that pistol and go to work! (…) I said throw down, boy!”” – Wyatt Earp


“Tombstone” packed in the stars: Kurt Russel, Val Kilmer, Sam Elliot, Bill Paxton, Dana Delaney, Powers Boothe, Charlton Heston, Jason Priestley, Steven Lang, Billy Bob Thornton and more. And it packed in the action with a relentless shoot-em-up pace. But did it pack as big a punch as we remember?
From historical accuracy to production quality, let’s cock the hammer on this 90’s western and explore some hot topics, including: how many shells and double-barreled shotgun holds, when it’s permissible to seek a new wife, how long after an assassination attempt you must wait to play billiards, and the difference between Doc Holliday and Doc Hollywood.

When it comes to 1990’s chick flicks, Julia Roberts is practically the living embodiment of the rom-com genre. From Steel Magnolias and Nottinghill to Runaway Bride, her body of work is almost universally loved by women, and tolerated by the men in their lives.

So this week we dive into the 4$ bin and pullout the supposedly modern day version of Cinderella.

She becomes a week long “companion” for an extremely wealthy business man, Edward (Richard Gere).

Ok.. that’s not how the movie ends, but we all know it should have. Continue reading Pretty Woman (1990)
