    Logline: Scavenging dead bodies and fixing people is all that the Patch-up Kid knew, but a cowboy in Nino Sangre has one more test for him.

    I just couldn't resist joining up for a Western themed writing contest.

    Time to resurrect the genre.

    Cool
    Hell, this one sounds intriguing in a very strange way. And that's a good thing.

    i think the western genre might actually be headed for a resurrection... the coen brother's latest is a remake of "true grit" and there are a handful of other big western projects in the pipeline including a jonah hex adaptation (great script!) and a western/horror thing called "the burrowers".

    I think this was mentioned in the announcement thread as well. "The Proposition" set in the Australian outback was a fantastic Western with some brilliant actors to boot.

    Ron Howard's "The Missing" was again fun and had its moments.

    I'd say "Ravenous" was a Horror/Western and is one of my favorite movies.

    3:10 To Yuma disappointed me a bit and wasn't up to par with the original.

    Loved "Appaloosa" but it was more drama than a true blue western.

    "Three Burials Of Meliquiades Estrada" is on my must see list and seems like a modern western.

    With their acute sense of pacing the genre should come naturally to the Coens. Hope it turns out great.

    If "The Burrowers" is anywhere close to "Tremors" (Which I feel is a Western, with the creatures harassing the townsfolk) then it should be AWESOME!!!

    In the meantime these entries should be a lot of fun to read and enjoy the genre.

    I'm a big fan of "Ravenous". I didn't realize the Coen Bros. were making a western, thats definitely something I want to see.

    Guy Pearce starred in both, "Ravenous" and "The Proposition." Quite good in both of 'em.

    And the setting for both films is extraordinary.
