Best of the Old West
February 5, 2010 § Leave a comment
Yesterday was Thursday, which meant dinner and a movie. We watched Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, which was surprisingly good. Or maybe not so surprising since you already know how I feel about Robert Redford, and of course who doesn’t love Paul Newman. Either way, I take back any prejudices I had towards old westerns. This movie had all the elements of a true classic; bromance, violence, suspense, love, and comedy. Plus, a lot of good one- liners.
While the food turned out great and the movie was good, the highlight of the evening for me had to be the movie’s soundtrack. It is a collection of the most ridiculous and out of place tunes I could image for a film about bank robbers.
Oh well, four stars!
