Too many to name, but these are the first to come to mind…
No love for Django Unchained? Or is it too much of a stretch to call it a western?
It’s certainly a western.
Personally, I love the first 90 minutes as a bounty hunter road movie, but I feel like the story grinds to a halt when they go to “Candie Land”.
It does pick up again with the incredible shoot out at the end.
For me, in order:
The Wild Bunch (maybe my favorite movie of any genre)
Once Upon a Time in the West
The Outlaw Josie Wales
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence
Every other John Wayne western / The Man With No Name Trilogy (it's a tie)
The Quick and the Dead (Hackman was so great as the baddy!)
Ride the High Country
Tombstone (I currently have a Johnny Ringo moustache!)
Unforgiven, but really the last shootout is the whole movie for me
how could you forget Angie Dickinson ?
I love the Dollars Trilogy by Serge Leone.
Especially because of the great music by Ennio Morricone.
His guitar player Alessandro Alessandroni was amazing. I love the Twang of his Fender Stratocaster. It's sad that he never got the credit he deserved.
Seen a few movies that Lee Van Cleef was in mentioned.
Those posters might appreciate his tombstone.
Also, you have to wonder if a movie like Unforgiven (1992) [which a few have mentioned] would have been made if Costner hadn't made Dances with Wolves in 1990.
The Searchers! In fact, the John Ford westerns.
The searchers…………..with tombstone second!
The Man who Shot Liberty Valence
To whoever mentioned Johnny Guitar -- that's a real underrated gem as well. Great western!
Eastwood said he sat on the script until he felt he was old enough to play the part.
Unforgiven is my favorite western.
The 2010 version of True Grit is stupid good because it stays closer to the book.
Open Range has the best start to a gunfight.
I read Lonesome Dove about once a year. The miniseries did a great job. Same with Streets of Laredo
I could go on and on...
Over the last week I watched Tombstone and both Young Guns movies. There are more historically accurate movies about these events, but these are so darn entertaining.
My favorite of all time, hands down:
Everything about it was dang near perfect—even the length.
The Dollars Trilogy
The Magnificent Seven
Evil Roy Slade
The Book of Eli
We’re all forgetting Back To The Future Part 3
China 9 Liberty 37
The Long Riders!!!!!!
Finally after 2 pages:
“You. You came back. A man like you. Why?”
Love the drunken horse with the crossed legs in Cat Balou
Another favourite is Django Unleashed
