Not a movie but a mini series on Netflix, Godless with Jeff Daniels was really good. More recent were 3:10 to Yuma and The Revenant.
Great flick! Some corny dialogue here and there but the horses, the scenery, the soundtrack etc..
It's based on a famous Australian poem, about 14 verses of eight lines each, I was once able to recite it from memory.. If you know the poem, All the little details have been incorporated subtly into the script
How could I have forgotten Rancho Deluxe?! Oscar-worthy performance by Slim Pickens. Charlene Dallas as his innocent "niece" tempting Harry Dean Stanton, Sam Waterston playing an Indian, and a nude scene with a young Patti D'Arbanville.
While I’m think of it, I think Ben Johnson is a great actor who elevates any role he’s in.
I always buy the Blu-Ray version of a film if it’s available and reasonable. The main reason I do that I was just reminded of. Take The Man From Snowy River. The background is beautiful, especially in Blu-Ray. Same with Open Range.
The mountains, trees, lakes are just stunning in both of those movies and are accentuated beautifully in blu-ray..
+1 for Silverado. Not just a great western, but a great story and a fun watch.
What nobody suggested "Paint your wagon"? I would have been worried if you did.
Actually, one of the best westerns isn't even one you would think of as a western...."Jerimiah Johnson" with Redford is a damn good movie yet never pops out when a list of great westerns is presented.
Steven Spielberg once said that the best movie ever made was John Wayne's "The Searchers". Not just best western, but best movie. If you ever get to see it on the big screen, you might agree. It is just a whole different movie on the larger screen.
For quotable movie lines, it doesn’t get much better than The Outlaw Josey Wales.
Just yesterday I told my wife to “endeavor to persevere” regarding a nasty cold she has been nursing.
Shane’s considered one of the greatest westerns of all time; hardly overlooked.
Ulzana’s Raid... Gritty w/Burt Lancaster
Bad Day at Black Rock is a modern day (1940s) western.
My Favorite is "The Far Country". Not a Western per se, as it takes place in Alaska, but there's horses & shoot 'em ups. Great performances by James Stewart & Walter Brennan>
I'm easily pleased by most westerns, they don't have to be excellent, they just need to be close to period correct with no vehicles in them and have shootouts etc.
They are all great to me, i'm easily pleased by most Western's, they just need to have no or very little singing in them, a few shootouts, outlaws and no motor vehicles.
From Noon 'till 3 - with Charles Bronson and Jill Ireland
the best mini series has to be Deadwood
Lonesome Dove, Dead Mans Walk, Comanche Moon, Streets of Laredo. Robert Duvall is the archetype for cowboy lawmen along with Tommy Lee Jones. James Garner in Streets of Laredo was great as a serious character, his movie character as Maverick was entertaining. Lets not forget the Apple Dumpling Gang!
+1. And a luscious Shirley Jones.
Big Jake - LOVE the first 5 minutes! The rest is good too.
this article just hit msn.com this morning: 100 best westerns
John Wayne in the Searchers, was the John Wayne, that Mr. Morrison had strived to be for a good portion of his life. I think they just about got the western movie perfect right there.
