TRAILER: Appaloosa

Westerns have been a respectable genre for several decades--enough to garner being chronicled in books and classrooms, and paid homage to in present day films. But I didn't start liking them until I saw 3:10 to Yuma last year, and there's a slight chance I'm going to start loving them if the studios cranks them out as fast they're doing musicals.

The next western to hit the screen, Appaloosa, stars professional tough guys Viggo Mortensen and Ed Harris, who are hired to police a town that's under a violent dictatorship run by Jeremy Irons. Let's see. Dusty roads? Check. Showdown? Check. The fastest guns in town? Check. Damsel in distress? Renee Zellweger playing a grieving widow...check.
