This has been my favorite movie since the first time I saw it ages ago. I'm not a big fan of most westerns, although there are a few I do enjoy. Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer were absolutely amazing as Wyatt Earp and Doc Holladay. Of course Sam Elliot was born to be a western star and really helps make this movie great. I love him in anything he does. Tombstone is mostly about what lead up to the shooting at the OK Corral in Tombstone, but it also explores the friendship between Wyatt and Doc as well as Wyatt's romantic relationships. Doc Holladay has some hilarious and memorable lines. They truly do make this movie and Val Kilmer was perfect for the part.
Also, the director's cut has some good additional scenes that aren't pointless like in most extended edition movies.
