Usually Hollywood subliminal message, white men are evil and everything wrong with society is their fault.

I like ‘em all.

Me too. Entertainment is where one temporarily divests one’s self from reality. Some of the cranky old farts on here should try it.

It was "Loosely based" on a true story.

Just out of curiosity, what is your favorite rifle sexual position?


I hope it’s from behind....

It’s actually based on me. I was once near a trailer in the snow, and I’ve met a couple natives. The rest was artistic liberty.

I just watched some snippets, mostly of the shootout, plan to see it all someday. Someday...

Does seem that when the head bad guy announces to those inside the trailer that the FBI was right outside the door, the pretty FBI lady shoulda known what was coming and evacted the area.

I live on the actual Wind River Reservation and for me? I would have liked to have seen it actually filmed here (Though they did mention actual locations that do exist)

It may be "Loosely based" on a true story (Very loosely) but I can tell you for a fact that native women are far more at risk from native men than white men.

Plenty to like about this film in the snowflake era we live in.



Marlin .45/70, offhand, 1080 yards. Looks like iron sights (??) This guy can shoot.




The guy in the movie had a scope and was shooting from a rest IIRC.

No comment on all the rest. I don’t think the pretty Indian women were actually Indians either.



Meh! With help from a spotter and walking it in? I was not that impressed. Have witnessed hand gunners with open sight revolvers do nearly as well.

Also, I remember from some of your previous posts you purportedly spent some time on a rez. What makes you think the pretty native girls are not actually native?
I have seen some absolutely beautiful native women.

There lots of good-looking native women, they just didn’t seem to use any in the movie.

just a movie, but a good one.

the least realistic part for me was the size of the "security detail", their willingness to flank the local deputies, and their guns.

That part was a whole other movie

Jeremy Renner is quite athletic and does all of his character's physical stunts in movies: (fast forward to 3:10...)

Yah. Gotta be on the upper side of average for sure. Can't remember a damned thing about it though, so there's that....


A lot of men hugging and crying. Parts were disturbing (graphic rape) and sad (children dying).

Research actually shows opposite from what you are claiming.

Yeah, I guess some would not find Tantoo Cardinal attractive. Julia Jones (Cory's wife) I find attractive. Kelsey Chow is attractive, but she is not native (The Cherokee tribe could not find any record of her on the tribal rolls)

Yeah but I'm not one to put much stock in statistics put forth from most in this day and age. You know...what with the propensity to heap hatred and false narratives on whites.

I can tell you this though, that for where I live I'll stand by what I posted.

In fairness to the people who made the movie, this was a really A list cast. Both of those women in the movie were known quantities who had prior experience in major productions.

Same with Graham Greene and Gil Birmingham, who IIRC are on tribal rolls. I would guess they looked at native actresses too. Tantoo Cardinal rocks but I think she’s playing grandparents now. Time flies, Dances With Wolves was 30 years ago already.

Broomd: I enjoyed the movie and have watched it a few times including again last night.
I enjoyed some of the scenery and the animals a bit more than the plot/acting etc.
It also had several cool guns!
It's worth a looksee.

True enough. Wife is watching a series about a time traveling woman and her Scott husband (Outlander?) and Tantoo had a bit part in it on a episode the other night.Showing her age for sure.
