... and it fucking rules.
That is all.
I've never cared for Southern accents much, but Val Kilmer's "Doc Holiday" southern accent in that movie was so awesome that my best friend and I imitated it for weeks after we first saw that movie a long long time ago, saying crazy cool stuff in the same way as his character in the movie. Good memories.
Very cool movie.
On all counts.
Great movie, and Val's defining role.
I'm yer huckleberry.
Sorry. I can't help it.
Worst fake southern accent in a movie...
Keanu Reeves - "The Devil's Advocate"
And yes, Tombstone is great.
I actually enjoyed that movie, but yeah, his accent wasn't that good. I don't think I'd go so far as to say "worst fake southern accent in a movie" but it's definitely somewhere on the top 10. Al Pacino was awesome in that movie (of course, he's awesome in all his movies).
Oh, don't get me wrong. I love that movie as well. But as a guy who spent his first 21 years growing up in the South, even I shivered. I just wanted to smack him & scream "YOU'RE DOING IT ALL WRONG, YA JACKASS!"
Keanu will ALWAYS sound like Ted Theodore Logan to me.
Keanu's bad accent in that movie just ruins it for me. not that i know southern accents that well, but i think nearly anyone who understands english can see he's really fucking it up LOL
SAN DIMAS HIGHSCHOOL FOOTBALL RULES!
While Tombstone was good I actually really liked Wyatt Earp so much more. It's like 3 hours but it's a great story. I'll probably get flamed saying that being sooo many people hate Kevin Costner LOL But man Dennis Quad was amazing as Doc Holiday! At first I didn't even realize it was him being he lost so much weight for the movie.
Never saw Wyatt Earp, primarily for the same reason I don't try other guitars. Once I find something I like, I stick with it until it disappoints me.
I agree it's a great movie. And probably a "better" film, from a critical standpoint, although Tombstone is a bit easier to digest. Both excellent, however, IMO.
(Dennis Quaid did do a great job. What is it about Doc Holiday? Fascinating character, eh?)
Definitely. I think it's cause he was pretty much fearless, having tuberculosis and dying and all. He was also whitty (at least the movie versions of him). On top of that there was his loyalty. Those are certainly some intriguing qualities.
In the same vein, I administered some Unforgiven last night. Fuckin' awesome movie. Wish the scene at the end with Clint Eastwood kicking ass was like.. 2 hours long.
Also a good flick. Tombstone is still penultimate though.
"You're so drunk, you can't hit nothin'. In fact, you're probably seeing double."
"I have two guns, one for each of ya."
Bill & Teds was just on the other day. Might be the best movie ever. Socrates Johnson! I actually yelled out "SAN DIMAS HIGHSCHOOL FOOTBALL RULES!" at my friends graduation when I was up at the podium saying a few words about him (long story). A lot of puzzled looks from the adults, laughs from my contemporaries.
Anyways yeah, Tombstone is a classic. Great mustaches.
Every time I hear "San Dimas High School Football Rules!" I think of the song by The Ataris of the same name.
But, yeah, whenever I watch Bill and Ted, I think "Wow, Ted ended up doing some crazy stuff after he got out of the 80's." (thinking of Keanu's other movies).
And I thought Val Kilmer's portrayal of Doc Holiday was perfect.
Bill was erm.. He was in the Lost Boys! And erm.. That other movie!
Yeah it beats his riveting performance opposite Mira Sorvino in "At First Sight" , or his Batman debacle. I still prefer the lovable cheese of "Iceman" in Top Gun over all his other parts. He was very good as Doc Holiday though indeed.
"Freaked". Rivals "Drop Dead Fred" and "Tank Girl" for the worst movie ever.
