Yeehaw! Pod Hard is finally trampling all over the western genre and starts off in the best possible way - by watching one of the all-time greats, John Ford's Stagecoach.
Jonas Högberg & Anders Hultqvist are instantly smitten with the iconic stock characters that share a ride through Apache territory in 1880 and applaud Ford for his flawless tension building. Orson Welles saw Stagecoach 40 times before directing Citizen Kane. This film was his film school!
John Wayne is the original Arnold Schwarzenegger, Donald Meek plays his own name, Monumental Valley is all that and legendary stunt man and stunt coordinator Yakima Canutt is showing off.
Stagecoach is Michael Curtiz-approved, geezer-approved and Pod Hard-approved.
"Well, I guess you can't break out of prison and into society in the same week."
