Last dog watch, 8 bells (8:25 pm)

I watched Gunslinger since for some reason I couldn't fall asleep. I figured a Roger Corman stinker should do the trick. Well, it almost did. I'm sure it would have if it wasn't for Joel and the 'bots' jokes.

I'm still not really clear on what the plot was, but let me try to sum it up: female sheriff vs. female bar owner. Yeah, I think that about does it. The bar owner is buying up land in speculation of selling it to the railroad company that is planning on building through the area, but they end up going a different direction. The bar owner hires a man to kill some people, but she falls in love with him. And he's in love with her, and the sheriff, whose husband died years earlier, hence her pants-wearing, gun-slinging old west attitude. Hit man kills bar owner, sheriff kills hit man, quits her job because she was in love with him and just couldn't take it anymore.

I give this movie eight empty seats, for the number of horses that weren't harmed in this film. Had it been the number of people harmed, I'd have to cite everyone that's ever watched it, which must be in the hundreds. Hehe.
