    When you don’t know what you really want, who you are or where you’re going. At least an idea of it. It’s easy to coast on the emotional highs of loves first fireworks. Because their’s nothing in your way. And everyday wants to last forever. While that is hopefully part of it, finding your soulmate isn’t just the one who keeps you in the highest places, rich with dreamy possibilities, but the one you fit with. Who gives you, the…

    Thats how you make an engaging long format western that invests the audience in the wide open range of characters. As I expected Sam Elliot to be the broken Marlboro man. Mud running the weight of regret deep in his chest. Faint flickering light in his eye doing its last dance with the wind, trying to stay a flame despite the ignorance of souls in tow.

    Thor going off brand crazy with a God complex, minus the hammer. Looks pretty and acts pretty, but not a lot more than an interesting idea on auto pilot.

    Im not sure if Im more impressed with the feat of actually conquering this impossible 3000 foot Yosemite National Park wall of rock. Or the decision that Tommy Caldwell refused to reach the summit without his best friend Kevin Jorgesen and climbing partner who was stuck at pitch 15. He simply wouldn’t take hold of his life’s dream without raising his friends hand as an equal victor. Only a few men in the world even have the kind of elite…

    Have you ever been in love with someone and they choose a path which seems completely out of character? It comes crashing into your life with all it’s intentions leaving you helpless to do anything about it. You gave your heart to this person and perhaps you deserve understanding. But it’s not a place that you can find your way back to, even by some miracle. The earth has come apart and the divide much too great, leaving you stranded…
