A Week In Film #124: Slow

3:10 To Yuma
Remake of Delmer Dave’s 1957 Western by James Mangold (Cop Land, Walk The Line), based n a story by Elmore Leonard, with Christian Bale a downtrodden, one-legged farmer trying to do the right thing. Russell Crowe is the amoral outlaw he is determined to see onto a train to prison. A little too flashy, and not up there with the classic revisionist Westerns, but efficient.

Step Brothers
Meaningless fun fare from the Judd Apatow stable, directed by Adam McKay (Anchorman, The Other Guys etc).

John C Reilly and Will Ferrell as fortysomething idlers forced together when each’s parent (with whom they still live, naturally) get married. Inconsequential, but diverting.
