I thought I would comment on the end duel between Everett and Bragg. Unlike most Western films, Everett stands in the old-fashioned dueling stance with his pistol facing the ground, similair to how they dueled before the days of hip holsters and repeating revolvers. I managed to grab this shot where we see clearly how the duel turns out, where Everett fires far faster and deliberately than Bragg, who hits the ground beside Everett a meer quarter of a second later.
Just thought I'd share my appreciation :). This film is excellent with gun realism in ways few films ever capture. It captures the time period perfectly and I recommend this film to anyone who appreciates realism to its fullest extent. - Gunmaster45
I like Ed Harris.I think he can take alot of the credit for the movie's authentic look and feel. I've enjoyed his work for years going back to 1983 when I saw him portray John Glenn in The Right Stuff. I get the impression that he's a perfectionist when it comes to his craft. And he isn't big on using the latest gee whiz technology. In the DVD extras he decided to make Appaloosa with film instead of digital cameras because he wanted the look that only film can convey.It meant more work but he went for it anyway. I just put that it in there because I think it says alot about his attitude.--Jcordell 17:47, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
- This is awesome! It's so great we have a complete page for this movie. I thought about it doing it myself (the iTunes HD version of this film looks superb), but figured I would mess it up because I'm not familiar enough with guns from the era. -MT2008
- A good flick, and as noted elsewhere on the talk page, good solid accuracy with the treatment of guns/shooting. I loved the line, when Virgil and Hitch are all shot up after the shootout with the Shelton gang, "That was quick." "Yeah, everybody could shoot."
- Not to mention the fact that the guns actually sound like real guns, so we don't have any of that "pistol making a noise like the deck-gun on a battleship" nonsense that you see in a lot of films. - User: 2wingo
Organizing firearms by type
I'm just organizing some pages. I'm not changing the text or screencaps, but I'm anal and I am grouping the firearms by type. --Jcordell 21:42, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
