wild wild west
Wild Wild West is a 1999 American steampunk western action comedy film co-produced and directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, produced by Jon Peters and written by S. S. Wilson and Brent Maddock alongside Jeffrey Price and Peter S. Seaman, from a story by Jim and John Thomas. Loosely adapted from The Wild Wild West 1960s TV series created by Michael Garrison, it is the first (and so far, most recent) production featuring the characters from the original television series in 19 years following the television film More Wild Wild West (1980).
The film stars Will Smith (who previously collaborated with Sonnenfeld on Men in Black) and Kevin Kline (in a dual role) as two U.S. Secret Service agents who work together in order to protect U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant and the United States from all manner of dangerous threats during the American Old West. The supporting cast features Kenneth Branagh, Salma Hayek, Ted Levine and M. Emmet Walsh, as well as featuring an orchestral film score by Western film score veteran Elmer Bernstein and extensive visual effects courtesy of Industrial Light & Magic.
Released theatrically in the United States on June 30, 1999 by Warner Bros. Pictures and produced on a $170 million budget, Wild Wild West was a commercial disappointment, grossing only $113.8 million domestically and $108.3 million overseas for a worldwide total of $222.1 million. The critical consensus on Rotten Tomatoes calls it a "bizarre misfire in which greater care was lavished upon the special effects than on the script". The film was nominated for eight Golden Raspberry Awards and won five, including Worst Picture and Worst Original Song (for the song "Wild Wild West" by Smith).
Inspired by correspondence from a friend. And, candidly, in dry, almost desert like, space (firearm and otherwise) at the present with my own mind. (I've found they come and go. This one is weird, though, alas, not the fun weird. Honk-honk.)
What firearms, technology, era, or what have you...
I didn't want to derail @UnionMillsNW excellent thread on the topic, so starting a new one. What are some of your favorite songs from films in the western genre? Care to share?
I do so like Ennio Morricone's work:
So, the other day I had a nice lunch at the local Mexican restaurant and was headed back to my office when I spied a new book store. Even though a little pressed for time, I cannot help but stop at a place selling books. They were, literally, just setting up. By they it appeared to be a mother...
