Why you doin' this, Doc?
Because Wyatt Earp is my friend.
Friend? Hell, I got lots of friends.
Take Val Kilmer out of it and it's a forgotten relic.
Funny, I could say the same thing about pretty much every John Wayne western.
But I think you aren't giving Kurt Russell and Michael Biehn enough credit for their performances (which is easy to do, compared to Kilmer's).
I wouldn't say that when you've seen one western, you've seen them all, but I DO believe that if you've seen them all, it kind of feels like you've seen ONE.
The exceptions (for me) are Tombstone
(and The Wild Bunch
, but who's counting).
