SILVERADO: Critical Showdown …

Because of it’s eminent re-watchability
I place Silverado as a Western Classic.
That’s how I judge these things.
Time usually tells the story.

Other opinions:

IMDB: “7.2” Not bad.

I’m a big fan of Rotten Tomatoes Reviews
because they also show the ‘Audience Score’
who aren’t encumbered by intellect.
They just know what they like.

MetaCritic: “64” out of 100.
Audience: “8” out of 10.
The audience got it.

ALLMOVIE: “4.5” out of 5.
Right.

Rosanna Arquette
John Cleese
Kevin Costner
Brian Dennehy
Scott Glenn
Danny Glover
Jeff Goldblum
Linda Hunt
Lawrence Kasdan
Kevin Kline
Question/Quiz: 

The Quiz question is:
Without looking below, what order would you Bill the above Actors in the opening Silverado Screen Credits?
I ask this question because the Billing order is very often not what you’d figure it would be.
Try this quiz and you’ll see.


To me the order of Billing is always interesting.
Who gets Top Bill? – and the succeeding order.
It’s often not what you would think it would be.
