Shooter (John)

I'm your huckleberry.

The movies Wyatt Earp and Tombstone came out in the theaters pretty close together in '93 and '94. And over the years I've heard that most folks prefer Kurt Russell's Tombstone over Kevin Costner's Wyatt Earp. I honestly can't see why other than they want to believe the cleaner image that the legend is portrayed as. I prefer Costner's version myself. It's more realistic.

One thing I love in both is how Dennis Quaid and Val Kilmer played Doc Holliday but there's something about Kilmer's performance that really makes me wish his version was paired up with Costner's tale of Earp. I think it's the line I quote above in my subject line.

Poll #1251328 ready, set, draw!

Which version do you prefer?
