I just "instructed" the "old lady" to...

Pump the brakes. I came in to remind you that you're dutiful, thoughtful, kind and loving (better half) was recording this for you. But now, I'm mumbling under my breath and thinking bad thoughts. Mentally I'm stomping away in a huff.


LOL!!

Tagline is "Never forgive. Never Forget."

Back around 1986 I wrote a Star Trek novel (never sold) called "The Feud" it had Dr. McCoy wrestling with demons long held in check when a new weapons officer, Ensign Hatfield, came aboard the Enterprise....

Not telling any more.

Default My review of Hatfields & McCoys miniseries

Well...

Although for dramatic purposes and just general TV storytelling they played fast and loose with the timeline of events and the events in general, and added a couple of totally fictional characters, this was a really good show.

They should have had Richard Dawson play a sheriff or a judge or something, in a cameo.

Kevin Reynolds' direction was snappy and consistent throughout. It seemed he was trying to capture the pace and flavor of the "Tombstone" movie and he succeeded. It wasn't plodding and pedantic like most Kevin Costner-produced films typically are (Think Waterworld or more revealing, Open Range. Oh and the Razzie award winner for worst picture, his horrible take on Wyatt Earp.) Reynolds also directed Costner in the fun little unknown 1985 movie, "Fandango."

Still, I think six hours is a bit much for a story that could easily have been told in two, without losing much of anything, character development wise. It was definitely entertaining though, but not one I will be buying the DVD of (It's already available on Amazon for those so inclined.)

Of course, if you knew the most basic history of the feud this movie was sort of like the Titanic movies - you know how it's going to end. In this case, ropes were stretched and prison time was accessed.

I give it three out of five stars.
