Westerns - Unforgiven Blu-ray Book - Clint Eastwood

Unforgiven Blu-ray Book - Clint Eastwood

Gene Hackman, Morgan Freeman
Directed by Clint Eastwood
Released 1992
Warner Home Entertainment 2012

Releasing Unforgiven in Blu-ray Book format is a bit silly. Anyone who likes Clint Eastwood and / or westerns already has it in the collection. Then again, I didn’t have it so maybe Warner Brothers knows better. Aside from the pictures and informative text there is no difference between this Unforgiven Blu-ray and the previous one. The movie won four Oscars including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Supporting Actor (Hackman)

Being a modern western Unforgiven cannot but wax philosophically on cowboys, the west, and killing. This is why the story has a short-sighted young gun hooking up with two old-timers. This, though heavy handed at times does not take away from the movie.

Will Munny (Eastwood) is a widower farmer with two kids trying to make ends meet but not quite making it. A young cowboy named the Schofield Kid offers half the reward money promised for killing two men who cut up a hooker. It turns out Munny used to be quite the bad guy. He hooks up with old pal Ned Logan (Freeman) for backup and they catch up with the kid They and other shooters make their way to the town of Big Whisky run by sheriff Little Bill Daggett (Hackman).

Special features on Unforgiven Blu-ray Book include a commentary track by Eastwood expert Richard Schickel. Schickel is always interesting though does tend to be monotone. Also included are 4 documentaries including the hour-long Eastwood On Eastwood and a Maverick episode starring Eastwood titled Duel at Sundown.

 A Fistful Of Dollars - Blu-ray: First Man With No Name western looks great on Blu-ray
