When I think of westerns, I think of sitting in front of my grandpa's oversized television, chowing down on delivery pizza and watching John Wayne, or Poppa's favorite, Bonanza. He had an unparralled love for the drawn-out fights between cowboys and Indians, and the melodramatic love stories of a handsome loner who falls for the tough-as-nails, pistol-wielding barmaid. We never ventured into the more sophisticated flicks like High Noon or The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, so we never got around to watching The Shooting, a Jack Nicholson western directed by Monte Hellman. It's the next screening in Arthouse FW's film series, which is focusing on films influenced by Roger Corman. See The Shooting for $7 at 2 p.m. Saturday at The Modern (3200 Darnell St., Fort Worth). Tickets available at prekindle.com.
