    Jesse James was actually decent, first half is a complete snoozefest but the movie picks up after Jesse James dies.

    Along with the cinematography, the soundtrack was hauntingly beautiful, I'll give it that.

    The time-elapsed stuff was good. I was also a history student and love all the social history in it. They did a good job showing how people lived in that time and place. And the narration was cool.

    I agree about Malick and to a degree feel the same way about QT's latest stuff.
    The difference is that The Turin Horse is a painting on a wall and those other movies are indeed trying to tell a story..

    The actual assassination scene was amazing, it was really intense and displayed some great acting from Casey Affleck. Can't find the full original 6 minute scene on youtube, there's only one with a stupid added soundtrack.

    I'm just playing, I really didn't hate this movie and obviously there are far worse movies out there, I just wanted to see how many people would come to the defense of this movie...in other words, I have too much time on my hands. :)

    and the "bad guys", which were a few commanders and the rest kids, all black, ALL DYED THEIR HAIR YELLOW.

    I'm ashamed I watched the entire thing when I was a kid.
