I wish Bradley 'Sex Machine' Shoemaker had a Daytona 500 live cast. Nascar and Oscar. That totally doesn't rhyme.
I will give you my top 3 Westerns, as I think the genre is worth study:
The Outlaw Josey Wales - I am going with this one over Unforgiven. The story is ambiguous, there is no good vs. evil black and white conflict, but the ending here is uncertain. Killing men is uneasy business no matter how righteous the reason.
The Searchers - John Wayne plays himself as a stoic yet deeply racist cowboy. The film itself is gorgeous. The landscapes and cinematography are highly influential.
Honorable mention that is not a western: THE ROOM - An example of everything that one shouldn't do.
'Hell' and 'damn' are rather pedestrian terms. Like 'oh poo' or 'crap, zombies.' You can dirty it down, or you can finesse it. If the director's girlfriend (I am not starting with that beehive) says that hell and damn are curse words and there are too many of them, then maybe going full blown AIDS CUNT MOTHERFUCKIN ZOMBIE BAT may not be the way to go. You are going to have to figure out how to finesse things, like perhaps the way Seth Grahame-Smith did with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
Star Trek: Enterprise vs. Stargate: Universe. Sing it!
IT'S BEEN A LONG ROAD....
