30 hand picked films. A new one every day
Based on the 1836 standoff between a group of Texan and Tejano men, led by Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie, and Mexican dictator Santa Anna’s forces at the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas.
Detractors criticized it for being uninspired, but I can appreciate a more distant, fact based and two-sided epic, relatively free of jingoism. Thornton, Patrick and Quaid all do good work.
Had to watch this in school. An utterly dull, sloppily handled movie that is trying so hard to be an epic...but is weighted down by shit pacing, beyond hammy acting, and really terrible performances/directing. Rightfully a bomb.
I can't quite get over Jason Patric, apparently still doing his character Narc, in a disney movie.
