Big Country

BIG is the only word to describe it. This is the most beautifully filmed movie I have ever seen -- the only movie that has ever made this TV-loathing gal pine for a media room with an oversized plasma rig. Almost every frame looks like a painting -- the color palette is perfection. I would watch it with the sound off, even.

The cast is superb as well - and all the men look like men. (How many movies can you say that about?) And the story is... well, big. A classic tale of honor.

But mostly, it's just breathtakingly beautiful. This is how a movie ought to look on a screen... a really BIG screen...

Yeah...this definitely can qualify as a breathtakingly beautiful movie with a real men plus. I mean, come on; it has Gregory Peck in it. Breathtakingly beautiful *and* a real man. : )
