thanks! Much needed.
I altered my gameplan and although should have kept it the same, I didnt like my players stats, so I tweaked again. Here's hoping lol

TFA was great.

That being said, them seeming to not have much of a plan for what they wanted to do throughout the other two (and I'll always contend TLJ was the best of the sequel trilogy while ROS was a raging dumpster fire) hurt the sequels overall.

...and since we're on the topic of Star Wars now, Rogue One was easily the best Star Wars film out of the last 20+ years.

As maligned as the House of Mouse has been for the sequel trilogy (much of it deserved), the stuff they have on Disney+ (Clone Wars, Rebels, Bad Batch, Mandolorian) is incredible. Clone Wars even does a remarkable job of propping up the prequels just a bit.

I have spoken.  8)

Agree on TFA
Agree there was no direction and not being able to get directors of 8 and 9 on a path was detrimental, however, I challenge your contention and swap out TLF and ROS. I do agree in the grand scheme, both were shit.
Agree with RO and the rest.

We get along pretty well, although it might be kinda rowdy in the bar when we get to discussing your misconception ;-)

Got shut out.  :(
Guess that's what I  get for game planning during a Zoom meeting.

I dont think we have covered this one yet and if we have, noone remembers, so, your Top 5 westerns;

Just a modern masterpiece in my mind. Such a simplistic standard idea for a western and it actually captures what a situation like that might have really been like.
Real characters and believability, just top notch all the way around.

Butch Cassidy and Sundance KId
I just love this film and remember watching it growing up with my parents.
Im not wholly versed on Butch and Sundance but a lot of the film is fairly accurate and what isnt is still fun.

The Good, the bad, the ugly.
I mean, cmon. A favorite when I was a kid and still remains

The Searchers
Did you really think I'd leave out John Wayne?

Im going with Tombstone here, but honestly, the more I watch it, hte less impressive it is to me.
I liked it because it was the first Earp portrayal to show Wyatt wasn't all sunshine and rainbows, but directorial problems etc... the original idea lost it's way somewhat. That said, it's still a great film, otherwise it wouldn't be here.

Arsenic and Old Lace
Cary Grant Priscilla Lane

Ive never seen this film but had it on the radar for a while and glad I finally watched it ass it was a fun film to watch.
As a kid when Id hear Cary Grant Id just roll my eyes, just another one of mom n dads old actor faves from those stupid black n white films.
Luckily, I began to appreciate said films a little later.
This film is a comedy and funny is funny whether it's 1943 or 2023.

Archive pull Sunday included The Wild Bunch and Vertigo. Love some good Hitchcock.
Wild Bunch is a good watch, but probably not too good for multiple watches. It's fun because it was so controversial in the late 60's when it was released because of certain themes in the film.
For my go to western though, I'd have to say...well...hang on, I've an idea for a top 5 topic now...
