For some reason, I sat right up front, in one of those shoebox-sized Copley Place theaters. That feather floating around the sky was enormous! All these years later, it's treacly, overly sentimental, overly long, manipulative crap. The whole sequence where he runs cross-country could have been excised and the film would've been better.

Quality entertainment, and my second Western in a row! A reunion of Mel Gibson and Lethal Weapon director Richard Donner, Maverick felt really long- if you pay attention, the story has 4 or 5 "acts", where most films only have 3.
Too long, and not as much fun as Tombstone, which came out the previous Christmas. But Dennis Quaid is good and gaunt as Doc Holliday. Kevin Costner is overly wooden, and he was unconvincing as the twenty-something Wyatt Earp: his soft, 39-year-old jawline betrayed his age.

"Remake of Mix #1; N's top choices for fast driving music" This is probably my best cassette mix, certainly the best of the college years. Not only did I select the songs and sequence very carefully, but I also cross-faded everything with great attention to detail.
