The Billy Jack movies are not things that I would describe as “good.” I would hesitate to even describe them as “competent.” Actually, it’s honestly a bit of a stretch to describe the Billy Jack opuses as movies, as opposed to assemblages of amateur footage into what can generously be described as narrative form.

But just because the Billy Jack movies are dreadful does not mean that they are not important. These morbidly fascinating time capsules were bafflingly popular. Billy Jack was the fifth-highest-grossing film released in 1971, and 1974’s The Trial Of Billy Jack was the third-highest-grossing movie of that year, beating out Young Frankenstein and fucking Godfather Part II. And it accomplished this feat despite being almost three hours long and borderline unwatchable.

Since I’m pretty sure you’re never going to watch a Billy Jack movie, and equally sure you probably shouldn’t, I therefore feel it is imperative to share five reasons the Billy Jack series is the most insane popular, influential blockbuster franchise you’ve never heard of.

The Most Underratedly Insane Film Franchise Ever Made

Things about The Magnificent 7 that need to be shared
  • After the first gun fight when Goody got shot they’re all trying to figure out where everyone is, Goody’s saying something about candles or some shit and Billy keeps staring at his arm (where he got shot)
  • Emma holding that guys hand when Red Harvest is fuCKING Denali uP
  • Sam singing “Bring ‘em in” when Bouge sends those 2 dudes in to get Sam towards the end
  • Teddy Q is precious and must be protected at all costs
  • After Goody left and Horne is talking about how it’s good to be in the service of men he respects he specifically looks at Red
  • UGH when Sam is trying to convince Goody to stay and fight and he goes “You’ll be disappointing more than just me if you leave.” (((BILLY)))
  • When the little girl offers Horne water and he says in the most delicate and pure way “Thank you, miss.” i cRI
  • HORNE PROTECTING TEDDY AFTER HE GOT SHOT
  • Obviously Vasquez leading Faraday’s horse (totally in love w/ each other)
  • buT ALSO Red w/ Horne’s body 
  • Teddy Q is so smol and amazing and I love him
  • Billy’s last words are “Goody”
  • I WILL ALSO NEVER BE OVER HOW VASQUEZ COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY FUCKED THAT GUY UP AFTER HE SHOT FARADAY 
  • no you don’t understand the way he stalked out of that church and unloaded into that guy i don’t have to words to describe what he looked like
  • Red’s horse was actually beautiful
  • also goddam Martin Sensmeier riding bareback is not easy especially riding bareback when you’re hauLING ASS like he was i applaud you
  • Remember Iron Man 3 the “cheap trip and a cheesy one-liner” yea that is literally Joshua friggin Faraday
  • After Billy kills that guy with his hairpin (awesome) there’s a shot of Goody and he smirks and rolls his eyes so fucking fondly like “You couldn’t just shoot him Billy, you had to go for the theatrics, so dramatic, we all know you’re faster than him, ya just HAD to show off.”
  • alSO the fucking way he flicks that godamn cigarrette with such flair
  • the little run that Faraday does when he’s trying to get away with the cash right at the beginning when everyone is freaking out over Sam
  • also really not fair that Red Harvest doesn’t have sleeves because Martin Sensmeier is JACKED 
  • “Je-sus wept.”
  • ALSOalsoalso ho-ly SHIT the shot right before the big battle where Sam is on his horse on the ridge overlooking the town and the sky is this dark blue and everything is dark you can’t really make out details just his outline against the sky and the music is perfect and that fucking shot is so amazing
  • Peter Sarsgaard did a really fantastic job in this movie
  • When Faraday flicks his cigarette at Vasquez
  • ᵐᵐᵐᵐᵐm ºʰ ᵐʸ ᵍºᵈ OKAY so this shot was like super quick but when that lady comes up with Horne’s weird pelt carpet jacket thing or whatever Vasquez is like smiling at him then it cuts back to Horne THEN back to Vasquez and he has this dumb little smile on his face and he bops his head back and forth and its the cutest fucking thing I’ve ever seen Manuel Garcia-Rulfo is a gift to us all
  • off topic of this text post but i refuse to accept the ending of this movie and the only AU i will accept is the one where everyone lives and four out of the seven are gay and they all stick together forever


i just want to yell about these idiot cowboys for eternity

That time of year again...

Lover Man
Billie Holiday
Lover Man

“My mind was filled with that great song “Lover Man” as Billie Holiday sings it; I had my own concert in the bushes. “Someday we’ll meet, and you’ll dry my tears, and whisper sweet, little things in my ear, hugging and a-kissing, oh what we’ve been missing, Lover Man, oh where can you be…” It’s not the words so much as the great harmonic tune and the way Billie sings it, like a woman stroking her man’s hair in soft lamp-light.” – Jack Kerouac, On The Road.
