Oooo I loved this movie, its so funny! And I think I like it even more because it takes the piss out of westerns which I’ve been despising lately.
The rest of the review shall be my favourite quotes and the main reasons why I think you should all watch this movie:
Church Congregation: [singing] Now is a time of great decision/Are we to stay or up and quit?/There’s no avoiding this conclusion/Our town is turning into shit.
Reverend Johnson: Amen.
Reverend Johnson: Now I don’t have to tell you good folks what’s been happening in our beloved little town. Sheriff murdered, crops burned, stores looted, people stampeded, and cattle raped. The time has come to act, and act fast. I’m leaving.
[looks into the camera]
Hedley Lamarr: But where would I find such a man?
Hedley Lamarr: Why am I asking you?
Jim: Look at my hand.
[raises hand and holds it level]
Bart: Steady as a rock.
Jim: [raises his other hand, which is violently trembling] Yeah, but I shoot with this one.
Hedley Lamarr: Qualifications?
Bart[dressed as KKK]: Stampeding cattle.
Hedley Lamarr: That’s not much of a crime.
Bart: Through the Vatican?
Hedley Lamarr: [smiling] Kinkyyyy.
Hedley Lamarr: Men, you are about to embark on a great crusade to stamp out runaway decency in the west. Now you men will only be risking your lives, whilst I will be risking an almost certain Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
PS: I won’t be watching a film tomorrow as I’m taking part in a 24hr film challenge so, unfortunately, I’ll be back to being 2 films behind but oh well!
