“Somebody back east is sayin’, ‘Why don’t he write??'”


Three words to describe this film/state: Accepted and adopted

Best ‘Extras’:

  • Pretty Shield, played by Doris Leader Charge
  • Toughest Pawnee, played by Wes Studi

State food/recipe to try: Hot beef commercial / Kuchen / Pasties / Wojapi with Indian fry bread / Tanka bars

Earring Inspo Character: Stands with a Fist

Other Notes: Another three-hour war movie, but not another war movie. There’s something classic about this one, with its quirky characters/conversational humor in the beginning, its warmth, and its genuineness without trying too hard. More on the theme of war/the stupidity of man, but most of the focus was on the humanity and potential of man to love and live in harmony with others.

Grade: A-
