Best Westerns

Just watched the end of Unforgiven with Clint Eastwood. holy crap. I forgot what a badazz movie that is. Ruthless

I love how they portray the characters. Some claim they're hard, others know they're hard, and then there's William Munny. Gene Hackman is awesome. The scene where the kid finally realizes who Eastwood is and what he's done, just great acting. Probably my favorite western of all time.

Whats everyone's go to western?

something clever and related to fishing

It's a classic and full of classic Clint lines, and who doesn't love Tuco.

Good List Larry....I was in the process of posting the Magnificent Seven because I thought you missed it.

How about The Treasure of the Sierra Madre

I love it when the Doctor tells DOC Holiday that he'll have to refrain from having any more sex because he's about to die soon

and Doc Holiday (played by Val Kilmer) says

I know it's not associated with the movies, but the original "Lone Ranger" movie, where it explains why he became the man and why he wears the mask. It's not the squeaky clean version (TV) where nobody gets killed on camera, it's got some guts. I saw it on tv the week before they released the remake movie, and I kept thinking "Man, there's a lot of guys getting killed for a 'Lone Ranger' movie?"

The movies listed here already a great. Great shot locations, great actors and strong story lines.

Here's another goodie: "The Bend in the River" Jimmy Stewart, I believe.

Big Sky was really good. And, though it was a TV mini-series, I really really liked Lonesome Dove with David Duvall.

Once Upon a Time in the West - the beautiful Claudia Cardinale, Charles "Harmonica" Bronson, and Henry Fonda as the bad guy! Classic spaghetti western by Sergio Leone

Hell on Wheels is a great series.

Unforgiven, Quick and the Dead, 3:10 to Yuma, Love all of the classic Eastwood spaghetti westerns

Blazing Saddles is a comedy not a western....

Bent Rods and Screaming Reels!

Magnificent 7
Unforgiven
Butch Cassidy
True Grit (original)
Blazing Saddles (different kind of western)
Treasure Of the Sierra Madre
High Noon
High Plains Drifter
The Outlaw Josey Wales
Pale Rider

Butch: Would you make a jump like that, if you didn't have to?
Sundance: I have to, and I'm not doin' it.

Larry,how about when Duval shot thru the wall with his shotgun and knocked
the guy outside thru the air into the next building. I think there was more intensive gunfire in that scene than most except for maybe Josey Wales.
