The world is getting soft. We are getting soft. As civilization slowly marches towards a future full of politically correct, health food conscious, light beer sipping emotional marshmallows that don't know how to take a punch, it is becoming evident that we, as a society, need to relearn how to be a badass. The Alamo Drafthouse is here to help with a new monthly series at Mason Park dedicated to teaching the art of badassery.
Every month, we’ll screen a film that has proven itself to be badass. Screened from a 35mm print, these movies are the cinematic equivalent of wearing sunglasses, a leather jacket and chewing on a toothpick.
In conjunction with each month's screening, we will host a special guest from the community as they teach the audience a badass technique. If humanity is to survive long enough into the future to enjoy flying cars and colonies on Mars, we are going to need to learn how to toughen up. Starting this May, class in in session — one movie at a time.
Kurt Russell. Val Kilmer. Sam Elliott. Bill Paxton. Powers Boothe. Michael Biehn. Charlton Heston. If this movie had anymore raw, uncut machismo, it would be 100 percent hairy knuckle. Wyatt Earp has just rolled into the town of Tombstone – hoping to get rich and live a quiet life after the long grueling years he spent cleaning up Dodge City. Unfortunately, a band of criminals called The Cowboys have other ideas in store and it all leads to a final shoot-out at the OK Corral.
