Movie Review by MarkSchitts
June 23rd, 2018

The Bull About Bullfighting


Personally speaking here - I found 1941's "Blood and Sand" (that's "B.S." for short) to be nothing but a laughable cinematic curiosity piece. It was all pure Catholic kitsch heavily spiced with the flavour of Spain (and the psychotic passion for bullfighting, thrown in for good measure).

IMO - The sport of bullfighting (like c*ckfighting) has got to be the absolute, most despicable form of "crowd-mentality" entertainment, imaginable, in the entire world.

Within 15 minutes of watching this picture I was already bored to tears with the whole B.S. of "B.S." - But I patiently stuck with it to the bitter end.

It wasn't until this film's final moment that the meaning behind its title was finally revealed to the viewer.... But - WTF!? - "B.S." was a major disappointment on all counts.... "Ole!"
