About Riding the High Country
This site is the place where I jot down my reviews on and thoughts about the movies which I view. I have always loved the movies for as long as I can remember and I like the idea of having a place where I can ramble on about them.
I guess the bulk of what I write will relate to pre-1980 movies since that’s the period of film-making for which I have the greatest affection. While I watch and enjoy films from every conceivable genre, I suppose most of my posts will focus on westerns and film noirs as, again, these are my personal favorites.
I have categorized my entries according to both genre and decade, or simply by decade where a film doesn’t seem to fit conveniently into a genre (I’ve also recently added director and/or actor tags for most titles). Titles can also be browsed by clicking on the alphabetical index.
EDIT: 12/26/11 – I had originally left in the links to comments made on the old site as I didn’t want them to seem ignored in the shift to my new home. However, I’ve had to go back and strip them all out as I became aware that they were not only directing traffic to the old site but resulting in people leaving comments there where they were in danger of being missed. To those who have left comments on the old FilmJournal site and can’t now see them, you have my apologies. Unless or until I can figure out a way to transfer them over they will have to remain where they originally appeared.
