I think a good western every year is a good thing. I loved True Grit when it came out and 3:10 to Yuma was great then of course not necessarily a true western but Cowboys and Aliens wasn't bad either.

If they make a western like the old Desperate Hours if it's the one I remember then it's a good thing.
