When the Earps first enter Tombstone, a grave marker can be seen in the cemetery that reads "Here lies Lester Moore, Four slugs from a .44, No
Les No more." There is an actual tombstone in Tombstone, Arizona that has that epitaph.
Wanting to get into a Red Dead Redemption 2 mood, and off the cuff hearing this name mentioned somewhere, decided to give it a watch. A very cool
film, all star cast and based on real events (with some artistic license, but history buffs say it's pretty accurate). By no means the grittiest
Western I've seen but that isn't always the winning formula.
Here it's camaraderie that plays through strongest and a well played portrayal of a legendary historic old west figure (Wyatt Earp). If you enjoyed
Kurt Russell in The Hateful Eight then it's well worth seeing him in his earlier days in Tombstone, complimented further by an excellent performance
by Val Kilmer (as Doc Holliday).
The late Bill Paxton has a nice role, and was happy to see him there, as I had just re-watched Apollo 13 prior to this one. Throw in a very nice and
unexpected score by Bruce Broughton and you have a very good show for all wild west fans.

This is the last movie I saw- it was on a streaming service. It is about a middle-aged lady taking care of her elderly mom and looking for a job. Then
her mom dies and she begins a relationship with a neighbor, Doug. All the while she still has trouble finding a job which leads her into a downward
spiral where she becomes desperate enough to break the law and involve Doug in her scheme. Doug's compassion for Kyra, libido-fueled though it may be,
is what makes this movie really touching and worth seeing. The film has some problems; it is very dark visually (as in the director didn't pay the
light bill) and it is also very slow. But I do recommend it.
