Hellbent for Letterbox | Jonah Hex (2010)

Pax and I raise the corpse of the DC Comics box office flop to figure out if it's as bad as its reputation and maybe even how to fix it. Jonah Hex stars Josh Brolin, Megan Fox, and John Malkovich and was written (in part) by the notorious Neveldine and Taylor.

Pax also talks about the 1985 Jonah Hex comics reboot, Hex, and I wander away from comics completely to review 1952's Bend of the River, starry Jimmy Stewart, Julie Adams, and Rock Hudson.

All this and Pony Express!

I knew Brolin had been in plenty of comic book movies but I didn't realize just how much of the cast would go on to more recognizable comic franchises later on. Fox, Fassbender, Morgan, Arnett each have done at least two other movies in addition to this it seems.

Here's a fun video recapping Jonah Hex's media history up until this movie:

I do recall this Jonah Hex movie has drawn some comparisons to "Cowboys and Aliens" as far as the weird west subgenre goes. Will we be seeing that film on a future episode?
