We are all Hostiles

Movie Info


Set in 1892, Hostiles tells the story of a legendary Army Captain (Christian Bale), who after stern resistance, reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) and his family back to tribal lands. Making the harrowing and perilous journey from Fort Berringer, an isolated Army outpost in New Mexico, to the grasslands of Montana, the former rivals encounter a young widow (Rosamund Pike), whose family was murdered on the plains. Together, they must join forces to overcome the punishing landscape, hostile Comanche and vicious outliers that they encounter along the way.



Angry men sometimes don't stay angry. This movie is not a chase movie but a gauntlet movie. Everything short of a prairie dog comes after these folks. With every encounter and every stop, more is thrown onto the back of  this soon to retire Captain.

It's his last ride and the wild west wants to make it his last ride ever. With all of the hell these soldiers endure, many find redemption or a bullet. I wondered as I watched, which would the Captain find.

There are at times a lot of looking of into the distance. Maybe too much reflection for my tastes. There is solace in knowing that with out words, much of what will happen and what characters are thinking is known. It's worth while to see in theaters. The landscapes are beautiful. The acting is great and good movie to ponder who do you hate and exactly why do you.

The Jaded Wino - Butterfly Kiss Chardonnay 2014


I bring wine reviews for the non discriminating wine connoisseur. I make all my wine purchases under 2 conditions; one: $2.99 or less and two; 10% alcohol or greater. Does it taste good? I'm beginning to tell if it does. This Chardonnay does taste like a hint of pineapples, It's good stuff compared to what else I've had in the past.
