Better Late than Never blog series…goes west: ‘Hell or High Water’ (2016)

So technically, “Hell or High Water” (2016) wasn’t on my original short list of films to watch for the “Better Late than Never…goes west” blog series. It’s also a bit of an outlier compared to the other films I’ve watched for the series. While I’ve watched some Westerns that were

Better Late than Never blog series…goes west!

For a long time, I thought that I didn’t like westerns. Whatever the reason, this genre just didn’t seem to speak to me personally. However, in 2018 I decided to do a blog series called “Better Late than Never,” where I started catching up on some classic movies I’d never
