Tombstone – 1993

I’m always late to the party discovering movies and bands…I saw this movie for the first time last year. I just started to get into westerns in the past couple of years when I discovered “Have Gun Will Travel” and the black and white 30-minute episodes of Gunsmoke.

This is a classic movie. Val Kilmer fan was fantastic in this film. The entire cast did a great job but the way Kilmer portrayed Doc Holliday was iconic. The movie centers around the Earp brothers arriving in Tombstone to make their fortune but they get pulled into fighting the “Cowboys.”

I’m not sure how accurate it is to the real story but its a very entertaining movie nonetheless and I cannot believe I didn’t see this years ago. If you haven’t seen it…make plans to see it. I don’t think you will be disappointed. You will never hear the word “huckleberry” the same again.

The cast included Kurt Russell, Val Kilmer, Sam Elliott, Bill Paxton, Powers Boothe, Michael Biehn, Charlton Heston, Jason Priestly, Jon Tenney, Stephen Lang, Thomas Haden Church, Dana Delany, Paula Malcomson, Lisa Collins, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, Michael Rooker, Billy Bob Thornton and Billy Zane.

I looked up the Oscars for 1993 and it is a crime that Val Kilmer wasn’t nominated for anything.

    1. Oh by the way… The Wire we are on the 4th season. I’ve grown attached to Omar. Him in court being the only one to put Levy in his place was great.

      The pivotal moment so far to me was Wallace getting shot. That led to D’Angelo being pissed, Stringer ordering that hit etc… What a great series. I can’t thank you enough. We should be on the 5th by the end of this week.

      1. I am glad you are enjoying it! “Omar comin’…. even a criminal has his code… Yes I agree on the Wallace moment.., I finished Harpo Speaks last week- at a used book sale yesterday I picked up a book on the Marx Brothers… going to have to go find the title- I saw Marx Brothers and threw it into my bag.

      2. You can’t go wrong with a Marx Brother book… I’m in the Catch the Wave book… right at where Brian is happy about Good Vibrations. I know Brian is about to go down at this point.

        It mentions a Leonard Bernstein show on CBS in 67 that covers the Beatles, Stones, and Brian. I found the show on Youtube but havent watched it yet.

    1. I’m not a big Western fan either and almost had to be forced to watch it by a friend. It was really good. I’m not a big Val Kilmer fan but he was great.
