    My favorite western, Unforgiven was the inflection point for westerns in moving it from the romanticised to the realistic. The dominant performances of Eastwood, Freeman and Hackman pace the film and the ending is a classic scene in the genre. Even after all these years I still hold my breath when Eastwood strolls into that saloon and confronts the entire posse that is meant to be chasing him and despite only killing a few, is able to so completely intimidate the remainder.

    Well I guess I just don't get westerns. Seems to me like a whole bunch of men riding around on horses, with guns, mansplaining how difficult it is to be a man and how killing men is a helluva thing - before killing every man in the room.
    Well, I've seen it now; don't need to see it again.

    This is both acting and directing in Clint Eastwood's purest form, along with Oscar-worthy performances as well as a fantastic western film.

    Grade: A+

    Definetely, I don't like Eastwood as a director. This film was my last hope.
    I didn't have any respect even for the hero and even for the villain. Almost everything was so passive.

    Remember loving this, hasn't really held up that great.


    Yay:

    + A handful of great scenes. Eastwood, Hackman, Freeman and the whores are all alright.


    Nay:

    - The kid is horrible.

    - Cinematography looks cheap. You're a western? Give me some more wideshots.

    - Munny turning into John Wick at the end kind of negates the "it's a hell of a thing, killing a man"-theme.

    Watched this for the first time and thought it incredible. By far the best Clint Eastwood movie I've seen, although I think I still slightly prefer OPEN RANGE.

    I really liked where this movie was going, but something about that ending just doesn't feel right. Might need a second viewing before I really make up my mind.

    Not the worst transatlantic flight, Part 2

    You don't need to be an expert in Spaghetti Western movies to understand that UNFORGIVEN is a pretty ingenious deconstruction of the genre.
