020 - Tombstone (1993) and Westerns

Ti and Tara are back and are discussing that most problematic of genres - The Western.

This week, Ti gets Tara to watch the 1993 western Tombstone, which tells the legendary story of Wyatt Earp and the shootout at the OK Corral. With its all-star cast including Kurt Russell, Sam Elliott, Val Kilmer and Bill Paxton and its cinematic re-telling of an infamous story of the Old West, will this be enough to entertain Tara despite the genre's problematic constants of casual racism, sexism and gun crime?

Please note that going forward, episodes of Cinema Blindspot will be released every two weeks! Our editor needed a rest!
