  1. Not to mention bad taste

  4. I doubt only the russians would if someone could get away with it
  5. Heads up for spoilers folks.... Hombre Roger EbertApril 21, 1967 Ah, yes, we know the characters well from a thousand other Westerns. It's fun to check them off: The good but indecisive Mexican, the decisive but bad Mexican, the thieving Indian agent, his cultured wife, the desperado, the lady boarding house operator with a heart of gold, and the Kid. Every Western has a Kid, who is always called the Kid, although in "Hombre" someone finally gets around to asking his last name. By now we know the role Paul Newman will play, too, since he's Hombre and that means he's in the tradition of Hud, the Hustler and Harper. He'll be taciturn and alienated and tough, but victimized by a lot of wishy-washy liberals. Just because the ingredients are familiar, however, doesn't mean "Hombre" isn't an absorbing, suspenseful film. Indeed, Hollywood seems at its best when it returns to its traditions, and nothing is more Hollywood than the big, socially significant Western. All directors do one to prove they haven't sold out. Last year, Richard Brooks' "The Professionals" was the best-directed film out of Hollywood, and this year it looks as if the honors may rest with Martin Ritt and "Hombre." Newman plays a white man who was raised by Apaches and chooses to cast his lot with them. Because he inherits a boarding house, however, he goes into town and gets tangled up with a lot of people whose lives aren't as simple as the one he led in the mountains. Eventually they all set out in a stagecoach and are held up by bandits. Newman helps them survive pretty well until the bandits think up a good Moral Dilemma. The Indian agent's cultured wife will die of thirst if Newman doesn't hand over the money the Indian agent stole from the Apaches. Ah! Naturally, Newman falls for it. He ought to take a good course in ethics if he's going to be in many more of these. The performances are uniformly excellent. Three particularly pleasing ones, however, were from Diane Cilento (Mrs. Sean Connery), the boarding house operator who talks Hombre into his ethical heroics; Richard Boone as the villainous Cicero Grimes, and Martin Balsam, as the good Mexican. Ritt directs with a steady hand, and the dialog by Irving Ravetch and Harriet Flank bears listening to. It's intelligent, and has a certain grace as well.
  6. Hombre is a novel by American author Elmore Leonard, published in 1961. It was adapted into a film in 1967. It tells the story of an Apache man, John Russell, who leads the passengers of an attacked stagecoach through the desert to safety. The novel was critically acclaimed upon release, and continues to be regarded to the modern day as a classic of the western genre.[1] It was released as a film six years after its publication.[2]
  7. hom·bre ˈämbrā,ˈōmbrā/ noun NORTH AMERICAN informal a man, especially one of a particular type. "the Raiders quarterback is one tough hombre" BAD HOMBRE AND VERY BAD HOMBRE = bad man and very bad man hth
  8. What are they doing in 3 hours that couldn’t be accomplished in a team huddle . This is just to appease your crowd.
  9. Don’t pigeonhole me into a box. I’m very socially liberal and maybe more than you. BAD HOMBRES does refer to illegals but it has nothing to do with Hispanics. A Hispanic can definitely be a BAD HOMBRE but so can a Latvian or a Greek or a Korean. A BAD HOMBRE could be a Canadian just as well as a Mexican .
  10. and everytime you put it on or look at it you think of your dad
  11. Was he lying about the government turning the frogs gay?
  12. A don’t give a rats ### what his political leanings were. Vive la difference! I can’t name one musical artist beside Johnny Ramone that was a conservative, I don’t care. I’m socially liberal, who gives a crap.
  13. Metal Machine really did suck
