    Default The Outlaw Josey Wales

    Watching this for the first time - acting is fine. All that. It's choppy - but generally written just fine. A classic story of justifiable revenge.
    “… the greatest detractor from high performance is fear: fear that you are not prepared, fear that you are in over your head, fear that you are not worthy, and ultimately, fear of failure. If you can eliminate that fear—not through arrogance or just wishing difficulties away, but through hard work and preparation—you will put yourself in an incredibly powerful position to take on the challenges you face" - Pete Carroll.

    A great movie!

    Too bad he and John Wayne never trooped up together.
    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?

    I think the ending of the movie is awesome. I like to believe that instead of taking off for parts unknown, since he found out no one would be looking for him anymore, that as he rides off, he's riding back to the cabin...
