western #25, '3:10 to yuma (2007).' [another day, another movie.]

I know I’ll lose the movie fan version of street cred for hating The Wild Bunch and loving this, but that’s just the way it is. I really enjoy this one. I own it actually.

The performances are all strong, but more importantly, the filmmakers do a great job paying homage to the great shots and views of the classic Westerns. You can see Leone, you can see Eastwood, you can see Peckinpah’s better moments. It certainly isn’t a perfect movie, but that would be a silly thing to hold against it.

It’s a tight, well-crafted Western for the double zeroes.
