I started this on my other blog, which I’ve now put on hold while we get this site up and running. We are in the process of moving all of the movie-related posts to this blog; hence why this post is starting at number four instead of one.
If you’re keen to read the first part of this challenge, you can do so here.
The fourth task in the 30 Day Film Challenge taken from #FilmTwitter is:
4. A film with a number in the title
Having a letterboxd account is perfect for film challenges where you have to recall great movies you’ve seen with a specific title.
For this task, I am going with one of my favourite Westerns – 3.10 to Yuma.
Here’s a little something that not many people will know about my love for this film and that is while both Russell Crowe and Christian Bale are fine actors and they are particularly good in this film, my favourite character was played by Ben Foster as Charlie Prince:
Why was he my favourite character? Well, for starters, his appearance. And that Jacket! Everyone I know loved that Jacket. He was stylish for a renegade murderer. And style was important, even back then. He was also a damn fine shot with his pistols, almost as good as Russell Crowe in that department. He was loyal and fearless and proud of what he was when many men wouldn’t be. And he was willing to die for the cause which shows dedication. He was probably borderline psychotic by today’s standards but hey, no judgement please!
