This week the guys sat down to watch a more-or-less historically accurate movie about William H. Bonney, aka Billy The Kid, and his involvement with the Regulators during the Lincoln County War. Not Billy the Kid Versus Dracula (although at least two of the guys more than likely have that movie on their lists).
No, this week the guys watched Young Guns, starring Emilio Estevez, Charlie Sheen, Durmot Mulroney, Casey Siemaszko, Lou Diamond Phillips, Kiefer Sutherland, Terrance Stamp, Jack Palance, and a bunch of other awesome actors. Holy crap! What a great cast!
|Is this or is this not a "Brat Pack" movie?|
|And fake Sam Rockwell as Zaphod Beeblebrox...|
Of the OLD WEST!
|Kneel before (*BANG!*) AAAARGH!|
It also puts Dick and Billy at odds with each other, and the tension threatens to turn the group against each other. The problem is indirectly resolved by buffalo hunter and occasional bounty hunter Buckshot Roberts (Brian Keith) some time later, when Dick is killed.
|Actual dialogue: "Ya peckerhead sumbitch!"|
|And giving her dead flowers. Smooth, Doc.|
|Not in the mood to be ambushed.|
Larry digs this movie, and rightly so. In particular, he's a big fan of the sequence involving the Regulators taking peyote to figure out what to do next.
Jake also loves the movie, as well as the peyote scene. He also offers up a potentially mind-blowing theory connected to it, which Larry pokes a hole in. However, it's still compelling.
Derek hates most Westerns, but cheerfully considers this movie, as well as its sequel, exceptions to the rule. He also offers up a theory concerning a prostitute that Charley wants to spend some time with.
So get on your boots, load up your Colt Peacemakers, and listen to this week's episode!
