10.04.07Netflix I'm really glad I didn't see this when it came out because I know I would've hated it. I barely like it now. While there is a certain kind of fulfillment of getting all of the backstory and context behind the big events in the Wyatt Earp story, for the most part this feels more like a filmed book than a movie. It's way too long, awkwardly paced, and you have to wait an awfully long time before you get to any of the good stuff.

At this point, I kind of don't mind that. If you know you're watching a 3-hour movie and it's one of those things where you're supposed to soak up the atmosphere and kind of live the life for a short time, I can go with that a little bit. In 1994, definitely not. But still, ugh. Give me Tombstone any day of the week, even with its hokey movie-isms and bad montages. If I wanted all the details I'd read a book.

oh and the music was horrible.
