I honestly didn’t think I was going to watch this today, I was bored and needed something to occupy my mind and turned on broadcast tv and watched this on on the “Charge” Network*, which broadcasts in low rez SD widescreen, but not in HD and chose to show the film in pan & scan. I haven’t seen a movie that was in forever and it was weird. But then I noticed that Marlon Brando was playing a “regulator”, which is what a vigilante was called in ye olde’ west, who was going up against a gang of horse rustlers lead by Jack Nicholson. Ends up it was a good film and I didn’t even think about the weird movie ratio until well after the movie was over.
*Shame about that Sinclair bit, I think I’ve heard they’re the next right wing insanity that’s on the horizon.
