Y’all know how much I love my digibooks...even moreso than my steelbooks...and I’m constantly scouring eBay for treasures to add to my collection. Over the past few weeks, I’ve had a welcome streak of “good luck” and found several of my grails at INCREDIBLY GOOD prices...so I just couldn’t pass them up. Silverado is one of those grails, and I’m so thrilled to have it in my collection.
Released in 1985...when I was ten years old...this “modern Western” blew me away, and I adore it to this day. I watched it so much that I used to know it by heart...but, alas, I haven’t seen it in several decades now and have forgotten much of it...so I’m super excited to revisit it to night.
Written and directed by Lawrence Kasdan...yes, THAT Lawrence Kasdan(famed for his Star Wars screenplays)...and featuring an AMAZING ensemble cast, including then relatively unknown Kevin Costner in his breakout role, this is a must see for Western fans and fans of modern cinema in general. It’s the perfect blend of comedy, drama and rip roarin’ action set in the Old West. If you haven’t seen it, I encourage you to seek it out, you won’t be disappointed. And did I mention that it features the man himself...Jeff Goldum...as a freakin’ cowboy? Yeah, now you KNOW you wanna see it!#silverado#western#oldwest#cowboys#bluray#bluraycollector#digibook#digibookcollector#cinephile#movielover#kevincostner#kevinkline#scottglenn#dannyglover#jeffgoldblum#johncleese#action#comedy#drama#nowwatching
