    Tombstone or Wyatt Earp?

    I'm currently reading The Last Gunfight by Jeff Guinn about the Shootout at the OK Corral, and I was just wondering what ya'll here at CF considered the better movie about the subject. Tombstone or Wyatt Earp?

    I prefer the movie Tombstone.

    Some bad *** moments and lines in that movie!

    Tombstone was much more entertaining for me. Wyatt Earp was another 3 hour Kevin Kostner snoozefest.

    I don't know about historical accuracy, but Tombstone is a much better movie. Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday in that movie is incredible (I had just watched tombstone when I registered at CF, thus the name)

    They're both good, but Tombstone is the best. Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday is all that needs to be said. ''I'm your huckleberry.''

    Re: Tombstone or Wyatt Earp?

    I'll be your Huckelberry....

    Tombstone was much better. The line "are you going to do anything or just stand there and bleed" pretty much makes that the truth.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: Tombstone or Wyatt Earp?

    Tombstone was the movie that should have shot Val Kilmer into the stratusphere he was so good in it. Not sure what happened after that. Bad Movie Choices? The correct answer on this one is Tombstone. Great Movie. Historically not accurate though.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Tombstone or Wyatt Earp?

    Val's portrayal of Doc Holiday will grab most peoples attention between the two. I have to admit he was awesome in that movie. I do believe that Kostner performed a better Wyatt Earp. He seemed much more cold blooded and hardened. Kurt Russel did a good job but it seemed to me that his portrayal was more cartoonish. Either way I personally believe both are good movies.

    Re: Tombstone or Wyatt Earp?

    More fun movie? Tombstone. Better acted and executed movie? Wyatt Earp. I crack up every time Kurt Russell starts yelling about all the kerrs (sp) . Kilmer is great in tombstone but quaid is also really good in Earp.

    he is crazy even by Hollywood standards and is notoriously hard to work with so he quit getting hired.
