>I’m still in the middle of watching Unforgiven the third Best Picture winner in my project, but I already know I’m not a fan. In fact, I fell asleep twice and then in order to not fall asleep, got out my laptop and started checking the elections results.

I guess I should qualify that I’m not a fan of westerns. Not at all. The only thing I remotely like about them is watching the pretty horses.

My parents are watching this one with me and they seem to be enjoying it a lot more. They have been helpful in explaining the parts I missed. In fact, my mother just said “This is my kind of movie.”

In sum, I don’t know why this movie won for Best Picture, but I’m pretty sure it’s my own bias against Westerns that is coloring my opinion on this one.

Next up: Dances with Wolves.
