Cimarron (1931)

According to IMDb, Cimarron is the second lowest-rated Best Picture of all-time, collecting just a 5.9 rating with 5,486 votes.

Honour and pride are a common theme in … More True Grit (2010)

Frontera (2014)

2/10 Labeled as a western, Frontera was on my watch list because it focuses on a murder along the US/Mexico border and starred Ed Harris and Michael Pena. Sadly this movie was a complete bust and in no way shape or form should be called a “western”. Just because the setting is the deserts of … More Frontera (2014)
