Movie of the Week - Tombstone

This week’s movie is Tombstone (1993).

The film is a western about the exploits of the Earps in Tombstone, Arizona, notably their run-ins with a local gang of outlaws known as The Cowboys. Director George P. Cosmatos focuses on the famous moments of the Earps – primarily showing the events through the perspective of Wyatt – effectively creating a spectacle of a western. It is grand – there are gunfights, horse riding, gambling, saloons, just about everything one comes to expect from a western, Tombstone has it all plus (awesomely) quotable dialog. The film also features a range of famous faces (check out the full credits) highlighted by Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp and Val Kilmer, giving one of his best performances, as Doc Holiday. Check out the trailer.
