WYATT EARP, AN UNDER RATED WESTERN MOVIE-- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL







This movie starring Kevin Costner, Dennis Qauid and Gene Hackman is one underrated Western movie with  kick ass dialogues.
It is a very intense, interesting character study of a famous lawman Wyatt Earp.
It is common now for modern Hollywood characters to ask the other guy “ Who the fuck do you think you are, Wyatt Earp?”  
As you can see the cast is terrific, with abundant  romance and action. The melody of the background score grows on you after several viewings.

“ There aint no humor in here: this is a serious story!” , so will shout movie critics —but people who can read between the lines know the humor inherent woven in it.

Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp ( 1848 – 1929) in real life was an American gambler, investor, and Marshall who served in several old West town.  He was also at different times a miner, farmer, bouncer, bar keeper and boxing referee. However, he was never a cowboy.  He is most well known for his part in the  Gunfight at OK Corral.

This  gunfight would define the rest of his life. Earp's modern-day reputation is that of “ The toughest and deadliest gunman of the old West"
The movie starts with young Wyatt preparing to run away from home and join the Union army like his brothers Virgil and James.  His father Gene Hackman in a cameo role,  stops him.  While Wyatt wants the same adventure he feels his brothers are experiencing,  his father knows the horrors and truth about war . Later, James and Virgil return home both exhausted and beat up from serving in the army. Their father has put on his traveling shoes and announces that the family will be moving West where opportunity knocks. Wyatt finally ends up as a lawman and along with his brothers, clean up  Dodge City.

Kicked out for being too tough Wyatt travels to Fort Griffin, Texas, where he meets and befriends Doc Holliday (Dennis Quaid), a former dentist, frequent gambler, occasional outlaw, and suffering from severe tuberculosis. Two demanding women also enter widower Wyatt's life,  the prostitute Mattie (Mare Winningham) and stage performer Josie (Joanna Going) from San Fransico.

Another stint in Dodge City follows before the Earps relocate to Tombstone, Arizona.  Wyatt and his brothers Virgil and Morgan manage to antagonize the local cattle rustlers known as The Cowboys, including members of the Clanton, Claiborne, and McLaury clans.

The escalating tension climaxes with the famous Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, in which the Earp brothers helped by Holliday kill them three Cowboys. The Earps are subsequently targeted with retribution attacks, with Morgan killed and Virgil maimed. Wyatt sets off to kill all remaining Cowboys, before continuing his life out west in the company of Josie.

Some kick-ass dialogues:-- ( with the Yank drawl )

Stop talking and start shooting.


You've raised your hand to me for the last time!

Put that gun down, Kate. I don't want you shooting me by mistake.

Everyone who knows me hates me.

Every morning I wake up surprised. Surprised I have to spend another day in this piss hole world.

All of you can kiss my rebel dick.


I know sometimes it isn't easy being my friend...

I've had enough of being famous. I'm gonna settle down. Start some kind of business where nobody wants to shoot me anymore.

Good, Mattie. That way we'll know where to find it when we're finished.

Wives come and go, that's the plain truth of it. They run off. They die.


Children aren't a part of the bargain, Mattie. They never were.

The next man that speaks out will be fined $25 contempt of court. Your Honor, $25 wouldn't pay for half the contempt I got for this court. Bailiff, collect $50 from Curly Bill Brocius.

We've been all over hell looking for those two.  Maybe you weren't looking hard enough, Johnny.

But with a little cooperation, a little live and let live... everyone can make out.

I'm sick of hearing your lies!  Go back to your friends. Tell them if they wanna fight with the Earps... they know where to find us!

Evening, miss. - Good evening. Are you taking a walk? I am. Is that a problem? Could be in this town. I've been in worse places than this.

You had your last chance and you let it go. There ain't gonna be no more talking. I've seen your kind my whole life.

.
Your day's coming.  Get ready. Why not make it today?

You can spend the rest of your time waiting to see me.

I understand most of your enemies got it in the back.

Gentlemen, this game is losing its allure. I'm out.

I'm not in the mood for talking. - You know how it is with me. You don't have to do much talking when I'm around.

After tomorrow, this town's gonna smell a whole lot better.

Those Earps and their skinny diseased friend... are gonna find out what a real fight is all about.

If you're gonna talk like that, you'd best take it somewheres else.

Shut up! I'm tired of hearing your noise.

I ain't gonna fight you tonight. But your fight's coming soon enough.

Come away with me now. We'll leave the trouble behind and go.

You sons of bitches have been looking for a fight. Now you can have it.

lf somebody voted you king of this family, l didn't hear about it.

You dragged us all down here with a lot of talk about owning businesses...
and getting rich. Now here you are a year later...

l'm sorry if l hurt you today. That was not my intention.

There ain't an honest cowboy who can get a fair shake in this town.
 
Go back to your friends. Tell them if they wanna fight with the Earps... they know where to find us!


He'd lick himself all over if he could, he's so whipped up.

l believe you're trying to seduce me. What makes you different from all the men who've tried what you're trying?

You had your last chance and you let it go. There ain't gonna be no more talking.

You talk too much for a fighting man, lke. l've seen your kind my whole life.

There's never been but one way to deal with any of you.

l am getting sick to my stomach of all your empty yellow talk.

You can spend the rest of your time waiting to see me.

l understand most of your enemies got it in the back.


You don't have to do much talking when l'm around.

For some people, this world ain't ever gonna be right.

ls that supposed to let me off the hook? There is no hook, my friend. There's only what we do.

lf you're gonna talk like that, you'd best take it somewheres else.

Shut up! l'm tired of hearing your noise.

My mama always told me never put off till tomorrow people you can kill today.

He ain't armed and he's drunk! -There ain't no law against killing drunks.

l don't have time for this today.

lke's been up all night drinking, trying to screw up the courage to kill us.

You sons of bitches have been looking for a fight. Now you can have it.

Look who don't know if he's coming or going.

You're just in time to watch me whip Bob's ass...

How come Morgan's the only Earp who's completely full of shit? The whole family wants to know the answer to that one.

Johnny, you're not careful, you'll see me once too often.


What are we gonna do with all our money? We'll buy you a new suit. You could use one.





"Nothing counts more than blood... the rest are just strangers," spake Wyatt's father Nicholas (Gene Hackman ) at the beginning of the film.

The brothers now will live by that code laid down by the patriarch. This is the most important line perhaps in the movie, with the exception of Wyatt's own at the end "Some say it didn't happen that way," commenting upon a flashback recounting his brand of law and justice in the wild cattle town of Dodge City.
The film has a outstanding musical score, amazing cinematography, and good acting by the supporting characters. It draws the viewer in, so much so that you do not feel you are watching a film, but are experiencing a moment in history.  The director keep it low key, allowing the viewer to be drawn into the story, rather than simply showing it to us.
Dennis Quaid lost 35 pounds of his weight only to accurately portray the tuberculosis affected and alcoholic gun-notorious Doc Holliday.
"Wyat Earp" 1994- is under rated as it is 3 hours and 15 minutes long, and was released withing 6 months after  the classic "Tombstone," which told the same story.  And the movie audiences could NOT get the drift of the smart ass dialogues.

  3. Ways to Increase Hair Growth

    Whiles it is true that on average the rate of hair growth is between half an inch a month. You can take steps to boost this number with some simple tips.

    Tip #1 - You want to make sure you are taking in only clean and healthy foods. The cleaner your organs and system the faster your mane will grow. So take steps to decrease sugar, fat and salt from your diet.

    Tip #2 - Get extra blood to flow to your scalp. Nothing is better than a scalp massage. A good scalp massage will send blood to the scalp which will help make hair grow faster.

    Tip #3 - Use a hair growth product called Mira hair oil if you wish to make hair grow faster. This is a herbal oil that has all the oils and herbs your hair needs to grow even faster.

    Mira Hair Oil has produced significant results on many users who experiences limited hair growth, damaged and dry hair, premature greying, hair loss, dandruff and brittle hair. Visible results are seen in 3-4 weeks of use on the majority of users.

  4. Sir it seems that you have a taste for good western movies.I have been seeing all kinds of sphagetti and american westerns of all kinds,from the most stupid(Django 1966) to some of the the best in the world(For a few dollars more) throughout my college life :-) I suggest you see these movies :- Appaloosa,Once upon a time in the West,My name in Nobody and Death rides a horse, unless ofcourse you have already seen these.Appaloosa explores the desire of a middle aged and successful gunman to leave nomadic life and settle down with a family of his own.Its not like the usual westerns.Death rides a horse is not a great movie by all parameters but what makes it good is the acting and the character of Lee Van Cleef.Unforgiven is another good realistic western movie without the usual fancy gunfights(in which Clint Eastwood is both director,producer and lead actor along with Morgan Freeman).Apart from this "Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid" is a classic movie of this genre.

    In Interstellar when Cooper was communicating with his daughter Murphy, he mentioned the connection as 'love' but is there a better word to describe that connection - is it conscience, emotional connect - is there any Sanskrit word for it.

    hi sr,

    i just imagined-if this question was put to RAJEEV MASAND the guy on AIB bakchod -- what he would SQUEAK.

    and imagining how this man would DIVE OFF THE DEEP END , squeaking pathetic nonsense all the while, i had the heartiest laugh since several days..

    the movie INTERSTELLAR has NOT been understood by anyone on this planet ( including the maker ) for you need to know Vedanta and Quantum physics to comment on the movie as a whole.

    THIS MOVIE HAS AN EVIL AGENDA.-- IT TRIES TO PROVE THAT THERE IS NO CREATOR GOD -- BUT FOR SOME "THEY " TYPE BENEVOLENT ENTITY.

    Thorne’s old friend Stephen Hawking, has been warning that the long-term survival of our species depends on us developing interstellar travel.

    So we must grow GM crops, we must stop burning coal , we must stop cremations --for in this movie there was only GM Corn as food .

    MAD MAN Stephen Hawkin's loaded astro physics has placed this movie in the realm of STUPID -- and has NO scientific base -- where they try to integrate newton's classical physics along with Einsteins theories- by bleeding gravity through dimensions.

    While the Endurance team is away, Prof Brand will continue to work on an advanced equation that, if solved, will allow humans to harness fifth-dimensional physics – specifically gravity.

    The equations on the black board are textbook general relativity equations-- pathetic !

    Both Newton and Einstein have stolen everything from India.

    Interstellar uses Einsteins RELATIVITY, GRAVITY LENSING, TIME DILATION, SPACE TIME CURVATURE , SINGULARITY , SPIRAL YUGA TIME , WORM HOLE PROVIDED BY OM, BUTTERFLY EFFECT BY SOLITON WAVE OF COCONUT SMASH , BLACK HOLE OF KALI, VARAHA AVATAR SAVING GENETIC BLUEPRINT CODE BEFORE PRALAYA , AAKASHIK RECORDS -- all lifted from Vedanta.

    Quantum Physics is embedded in Hinduism.

    The 10-year-old daughter, Murphy believes their house is haunted by a ghost that is trying to communicate with her by dropping books off a shelf in her room. THEY are sending an unknown form of intelligence sending them coded messages by means of gravitational anomaly altering the dust on the floor in a binary pattern .

    In Hinduism we read of SIGNS from our dead ancestors when we do REM sleep. That is why we do Pitr Paksha.

    Equipped with conscious robot ( only conscious computer can tell jokes and understand subtle humor ) TARS's data on the singularity, Cooper communicates Murph across the dimensional barrier from inside a fifth dimension tesseract through gravitational waves ( bleeding Newtons asshole ) , making him the "ghost" from her childhood ( bleeding Einsteins asshole ) .

    With this information, Murph is able to complete Brand's equation, allowing Earth's population to be evacuated el pronto—OOPS ! I must NOT get so cynical !.

    Now how does Cooper Praaji reach this Tesseract or Phesseract or whatever ? Pray? Prithee ?—

    1. CONTINUED FROM 1-

      -- a place beyond the event horizon of a black hole, where our man can view time as though it were a spatial dimension ( sic !).

      The conscious robot goes down a black hole to send back HAJAAAR “quantum data”

      They encounter a planet near a black hole, and decide to go around it to avoid the “time shift zone” --AIYOO AIYOO !

      NASA has been driven ‘underground’ as a secret organization --it also doubles up as a future humankind’s space-traveling ark. -- first generation of embryos are already with them – each subsequent generation helping to raise a new set of embryos (as well as reproduce naturally) PLAN A , if you pleaJJe..

      Translating that coded data gives Murph all the information she needs to drastically advance humanity’s understanding of space and time – as well as complete Plan A – CHOONA LAGAAKE !.

      But hey, they have PLAN B too. So that is why Cooper Praji sacrifices himself to reduce weight on the Endurance, thus ensuring Amelia can make it to Edmonds’ planet and kick ze goal of Plan B .

      But hey, THEY help cooper -- instead of dying alone in space, Cooper is pulled inside The Tesseract - the gravitational singularity that is maintaining the wormhole – created by the aforementioned THEY .

      Hey, I am beginning to fall in LOBE nay love with THEY. Where is my CHARKHA .

      INTERSTELLAR MEIN CHARKHA GHUMAAAKE PLAN B SAPHAL HUA-- SACHCHI MEIN !

      Kosher NASA scientists spAke that THEY ” are an advanced extraterrestrial race who have unlocked the mysteries of dimensional manipulation - and, for some NOT SO FAALTHU reason, decided to aid mankind in escaping our doomed planet. GOD BILKUL HAI HI NAHI !

      THEY are loathe to communicate directly with us humans – coz they are fifth-dimensional, having transcended our three-dimensional ways of understanding the universe.

      However THEY acquiesce to lay out a series of rudimentary library dust ripples – nay - breadcrumbs (binary messages) and advanced technology ( down the rabbit-nay- the wormhole) for humans to follow – in order to save ourselves from annihilation.

      THEY will sambhavami Yuge Yuge ( TEE HEE !)

      Cooper and Murph are saviors of humanity,chosen by THEY - the fifth-dimensional humans – who can observe past, present, and future of AAKASHA – custom-build The Tesseract for Cooper, so that he can communicate with his daughter in the past and relay the data that funny TARS (the quadrilateral shaped robot) had collected inside the singularity.

      SEARCH FOR SRI YANTRA BINDU IN SINGULARITY TOO --LANGOT PHAADKE- NAY—RUMAAAL JHODKE )

      Of HAJAAAAR importance is --the fifth-dimensional communication through gravity (made visible by three-dimensional objects back on Earth) enables Cooper to gently PEEPTA BHARPOORN , manipulate the hands on Murph’s watch – transferring the data that funny TARS acquired with morse coded watch ticks.

      Gravity bleeds via Newton’s asshole through to other dimensions in time and space to Einsteins asshole , allowing Cooper to spell out a message (“S-T-A-Y”) by pushing them mangy books off of Murph’s shelf – or communicate map coordinates to the past version of himself by spreading them dust across the floor (in binary language).

      If only this IDIOT knew the meaning of consciousness field.

      So so so—thief Newton’s Laws, what we perceive as a finite calculation could actually have infinite implications and fit into the plans of thief Einstein –kosher vineger mein daaalke.

      THEY kaun hai bhaiiya ? Aliens hai kya ? AKKAL KA DUSHMA YUVRAAJ ko poochna padenga ! Escape velocity bi pooch lenge !

      Hum honge kaamyaab !
