This week on The Collision, we take advantage of the rare opportunity to talk about westerns. We discuss why westerns are so rare, extoll the virtues of the genre, criticize Hollywood for forcing the genre into a blockbuster mold, the possibility of a resurgence for the genre, and how that resurgence might come about. We also trash The Lone Ranger (there are minor spoilers). As always, we finish up with our recommendations.
