Forgotten Flashback: 3:10 to Yuma
Original Blog Post: September 25, 2019 - A sign that a movie is great is when you catch it on HBO and you can't stop watching it. 3:10 to Yuma is that movie.
The Mike's saddle up to bring you another amazing episode of Forgotten Cinema with the 2007 film, 3:10 to Yuma, directed by James Mangold and starring Christian Bale and Russell Crowe.
Mike Field and Mike Butler discuss the importance of having characters that show you what they're thinking and feeling through expression and body language over too much useless exposition, the true motivation for the outlaw Ben Wade, and why westerns don't seem to be the big American film anymore.
Also, Field dreams up his own sequel to the film.
So grab your popcorn and soda, please notice the exits at the front and rear of the auditorium, and settle down for Forgotten Cinema.

4K?! Whoa! Listen, that's nice. But this is such a strong movie, that 4K, 2K, 1K...it doesn't matter. The story and the characters are what drive this ship.
