Over the 10-11 years it’s been since I saw Silverado for the first time, I must have seen it at least five times, maybe more. I saw it again yesterday and apparently the new has worn off it. Either that or enough good westerns have followed in its wake to make the luster loss a little more prominent.
Why was Jeff Goldblum even in it?
Why was Rosanna Arquette chosen as “the beautiful woman”?
If Kevin Kline’s character was such a good gunman, why did he wait so long to use that skill? (Sure, that early scene with the union suit in the street loading that decrepit gun was okay, but he basically wimped along most of the movie.)
Why did John Cleese accept his role?
I mean, for its time Silverado was a welcomed feature that still has enough clout to be rated at 7 of 10 stars on IMDb. I still like it, but it’s dropping fast as one I’d like to see again.
Any other observations you care to make?
