Been a way a bit...
...off at a conference since Friday. Just on for a bit tonight, and I saw this in an on-line movie review - *G*:

"Middling weekend at the box office. Russell Crowe's career worries aren't fully allayed. Yuma did over $14 million. Still say he's the reason they screwed up the ending to that movie so very badly. And the numbers don't say he's "back" after the falloff from A Good Year and Cinderella Man.

If American Gangster doesn't do gang-busters (it almost certainly will), Crowe had better start begging Peter Weir and Paul Bettany and Billy Boyd for another Master & Commander.

Which would suit me just fine. "

*L*! Whoooooot! *G*

I saw "3:10 to Yuma" and, yes, the ending was too unbelievable, although Russell Crowe was a joy to watch (especially riding a horse), and Christian Bale was very good. Ben Foster got mentioned in a lot of reviews, and I can see why; he stood out as the psychopathic sidekick to Russell Crowe's character.

I agree with everything you've said...though I have to admit the VERY LAST thing that happened? Made me smile like a little kid. However, this could be because all the shows I loved as a kid featured animals with humanlike intelligence and/or people who have an almost psychic bond with their animals. :)

And yeah...Russell Crowe on a horse. Damn him. I wish I could quit him!

*G* Actually, that made it more believable, too - that he did what he did in honor of a certain man... but he wasn't going to carry it THAT far - *G*.

Oh, yeah... that man looks GOOD on a horse!

But I like the reviewer's idea, too - *G*.

I don't give a hoot about Russell Crowe's career, but I'll cast my vote for a M&C sequel. In fact, I'll cast it over and over again. :)
