Knowing how 'Hollyweird' works, it wouldn't surprise me if we got The Revenant 2...lol.

Oh goodie...the only way I can stand D'Craprio is if he plays a villian...or dies....which of course Hugh did......it be called "Revenge of the Rees"......or "the Rees strike back".........or a single title "Reevenge"....or "Reevenant" :twisted:

Good heavens Jack....don't mention that to anyone where the idea may get out in public and picked up on.

Good titles Doug

You left out a couple Doug...... Valdez is Coming.....Tom Horn.... I like the original Monte Walsh a little better

Yes....Tom Horn was one of my favorites as well..................the reason I finally bought a 45-60 Winchester (Uberti).............Tom Selleck is just simply my favorite actor......and as un-cowboy as it is.....Jesse Stone is in my opinion his best character. Like John Wayne....not the best actor ever but I like him, I like his politics and his mannerisms. Lee Marvin was probably much more accomplished as an actor and adds quite a bit more humor to the portrayal.........but for some reason, the later version of Monty Walsh, fit more with my own reality. :D......might have been the cinematography! :lol:

I prefer Lee Marvin as Monte Walsh, but the Selleck movie's script and cinematography was so much better. I love the scene where they rip the smoke stack off the train. The show down with Shorty at the end of the Selleck version was a bit ho hum, though.

Must admit, I prefer Selleck's version myself too.

Howdy!

Well...

They have made a remake of "The Magnificent Seven" and I just saw an ad for a remake of "West World" (but with more violence and nudity).

Modern re-makes rarely work. I am not looking forward to the new Mag 7 tbh.
